This book gave some good information about nutrition. Each chapter focused on a different aspect of food (calories, fat, protein, etc.) and a different muscle. Then you would record everything yu ate and the exercises you did. It promised that in 10 weeks, you would be fitter. Well, I recorded everyting for about 6 weeks until I gave up. I think it's informative and great if you think you'll record everything, but if not, forget it.

This book would be ideal for someone who is looking to reform their eating/exercise habits and has no idea where to start. It includes a 10-week food/exercise diary. Each week, Kathy focuses on a different body part and aspect of eating; for example week 1 is fat and abs, week 8 is water and triceps. She explains why it benefits you to work your abs and eat less fat. And she gives you easy ways to measure your accomplishments. I always knew that you should shoot for 20-30 percent of your daily calories to be fat, but before I read this book I never knew exactly how many grams of fat daily were appropriate for someone my size. The exercise portion of the book would be good for a beginner. I can't say this book completely changed my eating habits _ french fries will probably have to be legally abolished before that happens _ but it did instill some habits that stay with me two years later-such as drinking water, eating more fruits and making sure to get enough daily calcium. Good book.
