Let's Do Lunch - A Book Sneeze Review

I received this book as a BookSneeze member to read and review. I'll say first of all that it was a pleasant, quick read. It wasn't confusing; the author went right to the point.

This book is a "diet" book, written by Roger Troy Wilson, who once weighed over 400 pounds. After he tried and failed multiple diets, saw nutritionists and doctors, he woke up one morning with an epiphany and began eating differently. His focus is to eat fruits for breakfast, your BIG meal at lunch (protein, veggies, etc.), and a smaller dinner. The author was able to lose hundreds of pounds and has kept it off for many years through the use of this new eating style.

The book tells the reader how he was able to lose weight just by eating, and with little exercise (he likes to golf). However, he suggests that exercise and/or resistance training can aid in weight loss endeavors. The book also has letters from individuals who have written to tell about their success in weight loss the "Let's Do Lunch" way.

The end of the book includes many recipes and also gives a link to his website where more recipes can be found. All in all, this was a very nice book, and an easy read. It was a type of dieting I've never tried before, so I think I may give it a whirl!

Here's the run-down of what I think of the book:
Ease of reading ................ 5/5
Supporting Details ............. 4/5
Sufficient Length .............. 4/5
Ability to hold my interest ... 4/5
Overall Impression ............. 4/5
