Book Reviews:

Notice: Scientific studies show that one specific “diet” is not superior to any other “diet”. In the end, weight loss involves decreasing caloric intake, which can be done by any number of diets. The best “diet” is the one that works for you and the one that you can stick to most of the time for the rest of your life.
