Would recommend reading the book. But I agree that you can just check it out from the library.

I got the books from the library, too. Making copies of info I want to keep. It has lots of tips, etc in it and I like the recipes.

I did the library route for the book and the cookbooks. Then I decided what I wanted to purchase - ironically I did buy the Supercharged but it tends to get "loaned" out to friends and family all the time.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

I like having the book available for reference.

I agree with prairedawnpam it helped me get it. Helped me understand its a lifestyle change and why it is necessary. I picked mine up at a used book store for $8.

I found that reading the books helped me to "get it", especially when I struggled with Phase 1 or why I had to eliminate certain foods. Try Freecycle.org or a used book store.

I love the library idea. I found inspirational stuff in the book. But it was given to me. If you found a list and are happily losing weight then keep going and don't worry.

I love myself and therefore can make the best choices to help me reach my goals.

I remind myself daily what my goals are and which direction I want to go.

I can to this.
We can do this together.
We will continue on this journey until our dreams become our realities.

I'd check it out of the library and read it first and then decide if you want a copy at home....

Hi all, I was wondering if the book was really needed to do the diet... I have found the list of foods that you should eat in each phase
