5 Stars IT REALLY WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!
This is an amazing book!! It’s easy to follow and it makes so much practical sense. I read and reread all of the reviews on here before buying it and, now, I think that all the bad reviews came from people that didn’t actually read the book or they were wanting it to fail. It’s all about the attutide you take with anything in life and if you are really ready to lose the weight this is the way to do it!!!
5 Stars changed my life
I am nearly 60 and over the past 2 decades have put on 30 pounds. I have never been a successful dieter. This book has changed my life. I have a totally different attitude about food and eating after reading it. It is as if my head got unscrewed and then screwed on properly with regard to food. For the first time in my life I feel in control when it comes to my weight. I have lost weight because I now listen to my body and give it what it needs rather than just eating for the sake of eating. Bethanny gives lots of practical tips but more than that, she makes you think about food in a whole different way. This book is the best!
5 Stars Bethenny has done it!
I usually don’t order diet books but because I love the recipes that Bethenny has on her web site I decided to see what all they hype was about her diet books and here is what I found.
Bethenny has NOT written a ‘diet book’ like all the millions out there but she has written a change of life instructional. This is one of the best books I have read that allows the person who is wanting to change themselves from the normal dieter to one who can live and eat as a normal person does.
I am not overweight but find that my cooking leaves a lot to be desired with the ingrediants I use daily. Bethenny has taken the foods I love and turned them into nutritious delicious recipes that are full of taste as well as good for your body!
I will continue to follow Bethenny through her books and websites! She has turned my kitchen into a healthy place with taste!
I recommend this book to those who are wanting to change their eating habits as well as lose weight or getting healthy!
Great read! Filled with a lot of chuckles along the way
2 Stars Some good advice but more bad than good
I began reading this book with a very open mind. As I get to the end, I am finding it harder and harder to stomach because it reeks of anorexia. I do think some of her concepts are useful…if you’re going to eat the cheeseburger, don’t eat the fries or stop eating once you realize you’re just eating to finish it, not because you’re still hungry. But she seems to take this to a new, obsessive level that is scary. I will still use some of her ideas about meal balancing and mindful eating but I would NEVER hand this book to a teenager or someone with a tendency towards eating disorders!
5 Stars Bethanny Frankel Wins and So Do We All…
I am thoroughly happy with this candid, refreshing book. Bethanny Frankel has so much to offer everyone caught up in the “dieting syndrome” and or those who have struggled otherwise with their body image and been unable to grasp just what REAL health and living is about!
In that brightly candid “Bethanny beacon light” she does just that!
Buy the book you won’t be sorry.
She shares her family background, etc., Attending the National Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in 2000. Becoming a Healthy Gourmet Chef to private clients, her Bethanny Bakes food line. All of which is done very well without getting too deep or broad. She narrows in and “brings you to the Party”!
She talks (her writing style feels like she is talking with you) about when and how she began to find a “new attitude”, through one of her trips to Italy. Bethanny loving food and her yen to taste and know “world foods”, she would no doubt find in Italy, that great country of food and living, that “there is no OBSESSING REQUIRED to living a happy BALANCED life!
Italians “value food more than Americans do, but obsess about it less”, she writes.
So “the path” began to reveal itself, and or, she began to awaken, seeing with new eyes the path that is there for all…
Enjoying “aha moments” while reading… Myself finding “the BALANCE” along my path to healthful attitide living.
Myself being studied in nutrition/holistic lifestyle practices, etc.,for well over 30 years. I have always enjoyed eating healthy, “live food”, but was obsessing about this and that, exercise…Too much, too little, you name it. This terriblly vicious cycle was throwing my “BALANCE” way off!
I have followed Bravo’s “Housewives of New York”, for some time now and have gotten to “know” Bethanny and have admired (i can relate) with her frankness, so re-freshing!
We have all seen her evolve, through her new show “Bethanny Getting Married”. We have seen her emerge into a “happier soul”, and certainly becoming a well deserved happy new wife and mother. Yes, surely, her softness has come full bloom, yet without lousing her “edge”! Plus has maintained her health, her life. Yes, She does it all!
She is very open and THANK-FUL for having in her life, a wonderful Baby Doctor, a Personal Assistant, and let’s not forget she has a great friend in her wonderful husband.
So happy for you Bethanny! She has worked for all of this and she is to be commended! Nothing was handed to this girl she earned it all folks!
Her welcoming fresh perspective’s are greatly needed especially here in America.
It’s true! Americans have much to learn about ENJOYING LIFE!…
Bethanny will enlighten and introduce you to the “non-plan plan”, that will lead you to freedom and health!
Bethanny has confirmed to me that I am FREE and I am on the right path…
