Book Review - Love in a Diet by Wendy Jeub

I mentioned this book in an earlier post. I had already decided to review it today, but I also had someone ask about it.

This is not your typical diet book. For one thing, it's small. You're not bogged down with all kinds of statistics, diet myths, and menus. For another, Wendy Jeub is an average, American woman. (Or not so average if you consider that she's had 15 children). And the amazing thing is that she weighs the same now as she did at 18! How!? Well, read this book and you'll find out. How did she lose so much weight eating chocolate every day and not giving up her coffee? If you really want to know, go here and get the book. It's actually cheaper if you order it off their website.

When I got the book last week, I sat down and started reading it. She tells you not to jump right into a diet, but to make a journal of what you eat for a week. That way, you can evaluate what is going into your body. So, I'm on day 4 of the journal. No, I'm not going to tell you what I've been eating. Sheesh, people. ;)

Anyway, it's also not a diet per se, but more of a way of changing how you eat and what you eat. Oh, and a handful of walnuts really does curb the appetite. Really. I tried it.

So, I heartily recommend this book. It's short, sweet, and to the point. Plus, if you order now, you get a sample of their second cookbook that will be coming out shortly.

Until next time...
