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)
