Over 50, after menopause surgery and multiple injuries (but especially because of an insane craving for chocolate), the author found herself almost 100 pounds overweight. In 2015, Jory Ames, Ph.D. began her journal and journey to lose 60 pounds in 6 months, by going vegan, dedicating herself to exercise, and writing down everything she ate. But she was surprised by the dramatic changes in her health and attitude besides weight loss. This book details the sometimes challenging journey to wellness of the author. She writes for her readers as well, especially those dealing with weight-related issues. As Jory writes in the Introduction: “I’ve read some 500 diet books in my lifetime. I’m not telling you that to say I’m some kind of expert, but instead to explain why I wrote this, am sharing it with you, and what my approach is. My frustration in reading all those books is that I wanted to know exactly what the successful dieters ate and exactly how much they exercised to lose weight. I wanted a manual that I could follow or not, agree with or not, but at least know. I didn’t want just ‘I lost 50 pounds and so can you’ stories ... I wanted the specific, truthful, day-to-day how. But not one of those books I read did that.” You will find her story motivating, entertaining, and most of all, honest.
