What did you like best about Body Love? What did you like least?

Having a hard time getting through this book (audio version) - it feels like I am listening to an infomercial for a helpful product - this is what you will learn! "Are you ready to shake and bake?" "Get off that blood sugar roller coaster and you balance your hunger hormones - fewer big crashing waves and more mellow rivers." Why multiple chapters of telling me what I will learn instead of just giving me the information? Probably because there would be no book to listen to. It is mostly sales pitch, client experience (even reading text conversations - always interesting, not!) and repeated information. Client, "OMG!" Me, "Hey girl hey!" - seriously? She started to give some detailed information and then said, "Lesson almost over!" Most of the information seems to be in the additional 150pg addition. I'm listening to this for the lessons, not the repeated sales pitch. While the information is good, skip the audio book so that you can just flip to the actual helpful information.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I heard the author in a podcast and was impressed enough to buy her book - so different. She went from serious and professional to infomercial salesperson.

Did Body Love inspire you to do anything?
