Thanks to Julie for liking someone's review of this book so I'd see it on my Goodreads feed and discover it. This book is EXACTLY what I've been looking for to bring a little direction to what I'm eating.
Rachel Beller's a registered dietician, but doesn't want to bore and overwhelm you with all that science stuff (although, it's in there--at the end of the book--if you want to read it). She doesn't want you to count calories or throw out whole food groups or do anything insanely crazy. She just wants to give you a couple of simple ideas that can basically take the meals and healthy foods you're already eating, and help you use them to lose weight. And, seriously, her ideas were enough for me to go "OH. I get it now."
I love that Beller gives you her ideas right up front, in simple, plain language, and then gives you tons of ideas for implementing them: recipes, which products on your store shelves are better for you than others, etc. She's done all the research--you can just pick which things sound good to you. No strict menus, nothing crazy. Just a way to eat that you could actually implement for the rest of your life.
Basically, it's the book I've been looking for my whole adult life.
4 stars only because sometimes she's slightly over the top with the goofy tone. But the book is solid in its info. And it was a whopping $1.99 via Kindle yesterday. :)
