Really great guide. Lots of tips and motivation. Tried a few recipes and they were really tasty and good.I'm really happy that the focus of the BL series is on whole foods as opposed to diet foods (with artificial sweeteners, etc.). I took away a lot from this book and would suggest it to anyone trying to make serious changes to their lives, food and fitness wise. This isn't a magic pill and the authors are more than willing to admit that.Felt like I was on the right track after I finished the book.
