REVIEW: "Diet Fads" by Barbara A. Zahensky

Title: "Diet Fads"
Author: Barbara A. Zahensky
Pages: 65
Diety?: somewhat
Promotes IE?: somewhat
My Rating: 3***

This was a book written for TEENS, and it wasn't as *diety* as I thought it'd be. There were a few parts that mentioned watching calorie-intake, or avoiding a lot of high-fat foods. But, overall, the book encouraged teens to stay away from fad diets (while explaining WHY), and encouraged them, instead, to listen to their hunger signals, to do some research into why they think they overeat, and to get more exercise.

I would recommend this book, definitely. I might give a word of "warning" along with it ((grin)), but only to say that we don't necessarily NEED to count calories, or avoid any foods so long as we're truly listening to our bodies' signals, paying full attention, and allowing any food in moderation. Moderation is key. ;o)

If so, please contact me here.

I cannot make any promises, as I often rely heavily on my local library for the books I read. If they don't have it, I probably can't read and review it. But, I will do my best!

Thank you!
