Weight Loss: 30 Tips On How To Lose Weight Fast Without Pills Or Surgery, Weight Loss Motivation And Fat Burning Strategies by Sandra Williams
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book had little original or helpful advice for weight loss. I found the ideas in this book to be overly simplistic, i.e. one tip was "go for a salad instead of fries". Many of the tips were based on the use of shame/guilt to loose weight, i.e "Revisit situations when friends, siblings or children were embarrassed of your weight and take it upon yourself to make them proud". At times the advice even conflicted with previous advice in the book, the author points out that drinking a glass of wine daily can help boost metabolism and weight loss, but then later advises the reader to give up drinking alcohol to lose weight. The quality of writing was poor as well, with run-on sentences and grammatical errors, as well as poor sentence construction. At one point the author advises the reader to "sign up to Facebook" as a distraction for hunger. It seems odd that the author thinks individuals who are purchasing an electronic book from Amazon are not already one of the 250 million users currently on Facebook. The author suggests that Facebook removes food oriented thinking from your mind so you will eat less, I guess her Facebook friends don't post pictures of food. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
