Unless you are reading the Bible, you are not going to get a miracle cure from just reading a book. If that is what you are looking for, than the "Spark Solution" is not for you. There is no miracle cure for losing weight! Becoming and staying healthy is hard work. I do not think there is a person on this site who will not agree. You have to be committed to changing a lifestyle that until now has been literally sucking the life out of you. So then why invest in something that will not in itself change my life? Good question.
I love the book; I love the recipes and the tips, and although I am not following the menus the way they are given in the book I am gleaning what I can use and putting aside what doesn't work for me. It's kind of like chewing on the meat and spitting out the bones (no pun intended).
I found that 1500 calories was way too much food for me to lose weight (I'm under 5'2" and over 50) so I had to cut back to 1200-1300 and that seems to be working better for me. I am learning what works and what doesn't and how to use that knowledge - from reading this book.
"Spark Solution" is easy to read and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend the book even if it was just to confirm what you already know. It is definitely a good reference/guide book for anyone who is serious about losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle. But understand this first! Commitment is the key to making this book a success!
With that being said, all the books in the world will not help if you do not have the support of others who are going through the same struggles you are - and that my friends, you can get right here on this site.
Together ("Spark Solution & SparkPeople) how can We go wrong?
