I am currently reading this book. So far, I have had one Ah Ha moment while reading it. It is in regards to High Frutcose Corn Syrup. I read basically that the body does not register that you are taking in these calories (similar to non-calorie sweetners) HOWEVER, it is packed with calories! This is why you can eat a million snacks and drinks with this stuff and you never get full. You just keep eating yourself into a comma. Scary stuff!
So, far the book is good at showing how the body works and how all of the chemicals effect your weight. It seems a bit overwhelming to me and I actually skipped to the "plan" after about half way through this section. I am only a few pages into the "plan" so far. I will be sure to come back and let you know what I think. So far, I think the suggestion will be the same as most plans these days... "Eat Whole Foods and Less Processed Foods". I do this as much as possible now. What I have to do now is to eliminate cheese and high fat animal based foods.
Will keep you up to date as I go!
