She's a thorough researcher who proves how healthy eating patterns can help everything from appearance and energy to better thinking, relationships, and self-esteem. A big believer in structure, she recommends a four-step plan--a week of breaking bad habits, two weeks of adjusting to better eating, a longer regimen for reaching weight loss goals, and a time for cementing a life-long eating formula for one's new healthier lifestyle. With printable food, recipe, and menu lists, this is an exceptionally powerful audio lesson. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
