    I’m really interested in reading this book (honestly, If I don’t win I’ll probably buy it anyways!). When I started my weight loss journey 50 pounds ago, I was all about the processed foods and anything “easy”. I hit a wall with that and just couldn’t do it anymore, and since then have been trying to lose weight successfully while eating a diet of mainly real foods. Coupled with a work class run by a nutritionist It’s really made me want to push forward with doing this, especially knowing that I may not lose as quickly (since sometimes the processed stuff is less calories), but I’ll be striving towards a more balanced life. Reading this book would definietly help me to continue to open my eyes!

      Way to go on 50 pounds so far.

    I started following your blog and found you through Diane’s Fit to the Finish. Your blog is excellent and I will continue to read and follow your wonderful posts. I am nowhere near Marie’s 50 lb loss (way to go Marie!), but am at half that and still have 70 lbs to go. I would say this book would be a great help but if I don’t win, I will also likely buy it anyway. I do have to agree that once you start on the veggies and healthy foods, I find I crave them if I ease off for a couple of days – even getting cranky without them.

      Thank you for checking out my blog and sticking around! I agree, my meals feel incomplete when I don’t have veggies!

    I would love to read this book! I lost about 80 pounds last year from diet and exercise but I am having a hard time keeping it off. Trying to find a way to have a “normal” life where sometimes I can eat my cae and keep the pounds off and I think this book would help me!

      Congrats on 80 pounds! You should be very proud of yourself.

    LOL I get asked to review books all the freaking time… and not once has it been a book I’d actually want to read. Even worse, they’ve all been digital only. 🙁 I would like to read this one though! Off to tweet now!

    The book sounds interesting. I was just looking at the nutrition info on the back of a Yoplait yogurt last night. While this version was only 90 calories, there was still 10 grams of sugar. So with a gram of sugar typically equaling around 4 calories, that meant that 40 calories (out of 90) were from sugar!
