Book Review

I just read the book Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson. This book was interesting to me because I wanted to start a diet and actually lose weight. I was on Weight Watchers but was having trouble sticking to the points and was gaining my weight back. This book talked about eating the right kind of carbs so you get full faster and eat less so how the book claims its easy to lose weight. But after reading the book, I realize this book is not for me. The main point of the diet in this book is to eat low carbs and cut out bread,crackers,rice,etc. That is unrealistic to me. I enjoy eating those things now and then and to completely rid them of my diet is not realistic. When I truly followed Weight Watchers about 2 years ago I managed to lose 25 ibs and it may not have happened all at once, but I slowly lost the weight. I only gained my weight back when I stopped following the plan. This time I am going to be serious and lose weight because I am going on a nice vacation soon and I want to look nice in the pictures and I also have support from my husband who will support me on this diet and help me lose weight and will help me anyway I can. While the book may help some people lose weight, it will not help me at all. But whats nice about the book is it had stories from other people telling their success on this diet and also the book had some delicious nice recipes in it as well that I plan on incorporating into Weight Watchers myself. Part of another reason why this book will not work for me is that I am a very picky eater, I do not eat very well and on Weight Watchers I can basically eat what I want, as long as I can keep up with my points and eat good serving sizes of the food. When I really try at Weight Watchers it truly works for me and I succeed at it. So I read the book with an open mind but this diet is for those who would like to eat low carbs and exercise. I truly need carbs in my diet for me to succeed.
