I have wondered about ordering the Spark Solution, but I really want to know how different it is from the spark. I have both the book and the audio of that one, what if it isnt very different at all? I was thinking of asking a Spark Coach, but maybe the best thing to do is wait and ask other sparkers after May.

I would say to read the spark first then the solution. I did read the sample of the spark solution and I can not wait to get it in May.

I have preordered the one do I need to get the other one (I did not know there was one) what are they about anyway?

I do not know how to get my picture back on (it is on my sparkpage and was on my post at one time) and the pre order.

For those of you who have ordered the Spark, do you think it should be read before the Spark Solution?

I haven't pre-ordered "Spark Solution," nor do I have "Spark." I'm not much into reading motivational, self-help books. I always have good intentions but they end up being a waste of money because I don't make it more than half way through.

I did purchase the cookbook. I looked through the entire thing and most of the recipes look pretty good. I'm going to try the first one this weekend. I don't have an opinion on the organization yet. However, I didn't like that, as you are flipping through the book, there is very little to let you know you are moving from one chapter to the next. And there definitely are not enough pictures of the completed meals. SInce people eat with their eyes first, they are attracted to recipes by the picture.

Stay motivated by setting smaller, obtainable goals.

I pre-ordered 'The Spark Solution.' I think 'The Spark' is fantastic and motivating. I have the cookbook, as well as the e-book 'Easy Vegan Meals by SparkPeople.' I'm not vegan. I guess you'd call me flexitarian. I find that meatless meals are easier for me and I feel good eating them. My problem - I cannot, at least not at this time, give up a cheeseburger sometimes, cheese, eggs . . . I don't really care about steak, pork, etc. I eat a lot of fish, eggs, cheese. I have to be careful with the cheese because it has a lot of calories. But, yes, I definitely ordered it.

Hi Casey I am glad I am not the only one. I wanted to make "healthy peanut butter cookies" I could not find anything in the book. Besides a Mediaterean cookbook it is all I have that is healthy.
Should I have the first book before using the Solution one?

I have pre ordered the new book and can't wait to receive it. I think it's going to help a lot. I had the original book and liked it but then I donated it to the library along with other books. Wish now I had kept it. Oh well, new book is coming and hopefully others will get good use out of the book I donated! Have a great day. emoticon

I did not know there was two I got the cookbook, I do not like the way it is organized hard to find stuff unless I am using it wrong.
I did preorder the Solution.

I haven't read The Spark either but I pre-ordered the 2nd. book. I have the same question: Is the first book worth getting too?

I have "The Spark" and have also ordered the "Spark Solution" which is pre-ordered for May. I do like the first book.

Did any one buy the latest book "Spark Solution?" I bought the original book "The Spark"
Just wonder if it is better than the first one.
