Bob Green. The Best Life Diet. I know this book is a few years old. I bought it, read it, followed Oprah on all her journeys and about six months ago someone close to me gave me another copy of the book. Good thing, mine was long gone. In those months it has been in my possession I picked it up and started, or re-read it more times than I care to remember. Shame on me, I know. These last few weeks I have been looking for something a bit more structured for me. I do not want to pay for Weight Watchers (lifetimer over goal) or another year of TOPS (I never go to meetings) as I prefer the online support since it suits my busy life much better. I love that the Best Life incorporates so many of the foods I love and that they are readily available to me at my local market. I also am a huge fan of Slim Fast since it is super easy, and sometimes I just need a break from cooking. Another plus about SF is I can put a meal bar in my purse to save me when we have our “family” outings to McD or BK for the kids playground feature. She plays, he eats whatever, and I am good with a diet pop and my meal bar.
I am bound and determined to find something that works for me, that is free, and I can use my food benefits on! Don’t forget, I am the starving artist(writer)/college student!!!!
Not to mention, the powders are awesome for making summer time smoothies!
So, for those of you who like SF and a lot of the foods you already have at home have the Best Life label ( I was shocked at how many I had), the book might be good for you to pick up. There is a lot of useful meal plans and recipes! The internet is a great tool for finding a ton of free information as well. Might be just want I need to kick start my program again.
