The truth is, in recent years I hadn't been feeling as good about my body as I used to-and for good reason. Over a period of fifteen years, I'd put on twenty-two percent of my original body weight-going from 115 to 140 pounds. When I realized that, I knew I had to make a change in my lifestyle...I knew that what I needed was a way to get a calorie-controlled, nutritionally balanced diet every day, and I knew myself well enough to know that following it better be easy.
For Lauren Hutton, the lifestyle change she needed was one that millions of Americans are making every day. As a woman entering middle age, she was alarmed at the changes in her body-and in her energy level. She needed to find a way to lose the extra pounds, to eat healthy while on the run, to get herself back in shape and start feeling great again. What she discovered was the plan she outlines in this revolutionary book: a simple, easy-to-follow, scientifically proven weight-loss program that has already helped people around the world remake their bodies and change their lives. And at the heart of the plan is one of the most successful weight-loss tools ever. She calls it The Slim-Fast Body-Mind-Life Makeover.
There were no schedules to follow, no elaborate meals to prepare. And the most important thing was the simplest: It worked.
Now, for the first time, Lauren has joined forces with the Slim Fast nutritional team to show you how to give yourself the makeover you've always wanted. Blending sound science with a commonsense approach to changing your habits, The Slim-Fast Body-Mind-Life Makeover shows how eating right and getting fit can improve your life forever. With a 14-Day Plan to get you started, over 75 recipes, tips on entertaining, and a daily planner, you'll find it's easier than ever to lose weight-and feel terrific.

The biggest problem with The Slim-Fast Body-Mind-Life Makeover is that the plan is based on substituting Slim-Fast shakes and bars for some regular meals. Two shakes a day may help melt the pounds away, but the strategies are likely to leave many dieters feeling hungry and deprived, especially over the long run.
Other than pushing Slim-Fast products, the nutrition, exercise, and motivational advice found in these 350-plus pages is pretty sound. Written by a team of nutritionists and actress-model Lauren Hutton, the book includes a 14-day, 1,400- to 1,500-calorie meal plan, inspirational quotes, exercise strategies, recipes, and plenty of space to record your weight, rate your hunger, and write down your feelings. There's also a chapter devoted to nutrition basics, another chapter on exercise and relaxation, plus plenty of Slim-Fast success stories to keep you going when the thought of drinking yet another shake makes you gag.
If your idea of dieting is downing Slim-Fast shakes, snack bars, and meal bars, than you're going to love this book. If, on the other hand, you'd prefer a weight-loss plan that emphasizes real food, you'll be better off with one of the great new diet books based on low-calorie, low-fat, high-fiber eating such as The Pritikin Principle. --Ellen AlbertsonFrom the Back Cover:
