I totally agree that plant-based foods are awesome disease fighters and essential to optimum health. But I have a wheat/gluten sensitivity and don't digest legumes well, but I do happen to do very well with meat. I follow the Paleo diet and have had tremendous success with it. So right off the bat, the book was a bit at odds with what I consider to be optimum for my body and lifestyle. Still, because I do love a plethora of fruits and vegetables, the book had a lot of great information. I can't say that it was anything I didn't already know, but she delivers it in a way that's more of a support group/counseling session for loving your body as a whole versus following any kind of diet or obsessing over the scale. It's similar to Cameron Diaz's Body Book.
I would've given this four stars overall but ugh... the narrator! She had the voice of a child, and was super peppy and chirpy. I kept seeing her as a young Marcia Brady, and it was so distracting. Plus, she read faster than I usually like in a narrator, so I kept having to rewind because my brain wasn't absorbing her words well.
Not a bad book by any means -- I would definitely recommend it to perhaps a female going off to college or a teenager who is battling body issues or someone who is looking for some positive, uplifting info about overall health and nutrition. But if your'e a hard-core nutrition-fanatic like me who loves the science and all of ground-breaking research and studies, you might find it a little lacking.
