I like it a lot. My favorite "diet" book I've read in awhile. I really like her writing style.

I like it too. But she is such an advocate for clean eating and on "the biggest loser" they push crap food like canned soup and subs???

The product placement on BL has always been cringe worthy and at times hypocritical, but I doubt the trainers get much say in what gets promoted.

Jillian has allowed her name to be attached to a number of dubious products over the years, but her books are good. I wonder how involved she actually is or if her "people" set the stuff up an she just isn't very diligent about making sure she actually endorses the things she endorses.

I know she said I think she would only endorse food if it was healthy n organic like lara bars she did this season. U never saw her promote the soup or the yoplait greek yogurt smoothie.

Bob pushes the sugar free gum and Subway. Jillian does whole grain products, food storage bags, and turkey. I think this is the book I went through this week, Slim for Life. It was different from most diet books, which follow a formula 1. Expose of other diets 2. Weird new theory 3. diet plan.

Jillian doesn't have to prove a theory, she just presents an encyclopedia of what works.

After I finished the book I dreamed I had lunch with Jillian, though toward the end it got awkward and my teeth started falling out. So much for dreams.

I will say that this book is much better READ (in paper format) than listened to (in audiobook format). I love audiobooks. I especially love their books because they read them! Love listening to Bob and Jillian give me advice. Bob's Skinny Rules was a lot of fun on the treadmill. But Slim for Life is not fun. It's a lot of lists which don't translate well in audiobook form. I think it's a worthwhile read but not in this format.

I read it, but never finished it. I wasn't finding it really helpful.
