an excellent game plan for health
This is an excellent, easily understandable guide to good health. There are so many diets, workouts, plans and products out there it is easy to get confused and frustrated. This is just excellent medical advice for a healthy way of life.

Kindle Edition Review
The one star for the book is not based on the material, but on the format of the Kindle edition. In numerous places the charts (written charts, we're not even going to begin to discuss illustrations) are impossible to read because no matter the font setting, they will not align properly to read an entire line (like watching a widescreen format on a standard tv with no letterboxing or watching standard on widescreen with no pillarboxing--both errors occur within the same chart). Considering the price of the kindle edition, the editors should have and could have done much better or chosen not to offer the kindle edition. Amazon, do better (it would also be nice if you'd offer a specific section to review the kindle editions because I hate to bring down the overall stars awarded to an otherwise good book (from what I have been able to read).
Additionally, it is not just the charts that are unreadable. The illustrations, which are part of the fun of the YOU series, are rendered completely illegible, the're too small then when zoomed in are blurry, and the grayscale makes them harder to see.
Finally, it is almost impossible to tell where paragraphs are intended to line up because the spacing is off. Accordingly, one begins to read main text but then segues into a sidebar before going back to the main text because of the faulty layout. Other kindle books managed to have sidebars hyperlinked or inserted after the relevant text, so as not to confuse the reader who is working with a limited field of vision.
Overall, this is one of the worst ports I've seen to the kindle.

I have always fought being overweight. I've tried many diets, read many books, and thought I knew it all. I was wrong. This book was full of information that was new to me about how my body works, the digestive system, appetite triggers, the harm of excess fat, controlling hunger and cravings, and how to reduce to a healthy size without knocking myself out.
At the end of the book is an easy-to-follow eating plan and a muscle-strengthening quickie work-out that doesn't require a gym or equipment. The information was up to date, compelling, loaded with humor, and motivating. I'm sure I'll continue to refer back to this book on a regular basis.
