Consumer Reports on the top 4 diets:
When it came to popular dieting books, The Best Life Diet — an Oprah-endorsed best seller —led the pack. The panel of nutrition experts liked its straightforward recipes and nutritional meal plans.
The other 3:
Eat, Drink, & Weigh Less — praised for its Mediterranean recipes but faulted for spending too little time on exercise.
You: On a Diet — lauded for its simplicity but lacking in details and flexibility.
The Abs Diet — the experts liked the emphasis on exercise but dinged the book for pushing whey supplements.
I wonder who – and how many people – actually read the You On A Diet Book? The book is very detailed, and it’s simple. It depends on who is reading it, I guess, but I found alot of info in the book.
And as far as flexibility, it’s very flexible. Now, the book won’t tell you step by step and hold your hand, but there’s no reason to say it’s inflexible. Maybe because the doctors who wrote the book suggest eating the same breakfast and lunch every day, I imagine this could be unappealing to some, but I’m happy eating the same thing. It makes me feel safe.
I have no problems finding things to eat, that’s for sure!
The book also stresses exercise – another article I read said it didn’t, but it does. The book says you should walk 30 minutes every day, stretch every day, and the You On A Diet book comes with a 20 minute workout CD, that they recommend doing 3 days a week .
