I found the audiobook to be helpful. It puts things into perspective. Most of it is common sense. It's good to hear it from someone else; however, I found the diet to be at times difficult to follow.
I'd like to thank all the women who wrote reviews, criticizing the book as a man's diet. It is, and I like it that way. Women don't seem to understand the psychology of men, not even the simplest things. The author, editor of Men's Health, knows both the topic and the mentality of his gender.
The diet is doable, even enjoyable. The reasoning for getting started as well as the explanation for why it works is compelling. The author's humor, however sophomoric, was entertaining and I devoured the book. Started the diet even before I finished the read, and I've lost 4 lbs in less than 2 weeks ... and enjoyed myself immensely.
Women beware ... this is a man's book. Don't look for Abs Diet on Oprah's Book List.
This is very easy to listen to! The approach taken towards changing your lifestyle makes sense and is easy to understand. The information given is in an easy to understand format and the humour used makes it easier to listen to. I look forward to the next chapter and wonder what comedic quips are going to be used next!
Yes, this book is more geared towards men but as a woman I still found it very practical and informative. It even made me laugh, I enjoyed listening to it. It also made me realize that I needed to focus more on strength training at the gym (I was mostly doing cardio). I can already see a difference! It's not so much a diet as just a common sense healthy way of life.
