Personal Opinion:

To be honest, if I'm reading a how-to book, I want it to be something that's affordable and something that's possible and doable within any budget. How fair is it to read a book where you can't afford the healthy lifestyle because it requires one to have an exclusive membership to the gym or where you have to shop organic when you can barely pay rent? Is the book doable for anyone? I suppose its a both yes and no, although I feel that the answer is more of a no than a yes.

While reading it, although I appreciated the nuggets of advice, I was wary and uncertain the deeper I dug into it. While I trust that the author has made her research into supplements and she believes that hers are the best thing since sliced bread, I was dubious that I was unable to find information in the book regarding competitor supplements, maybe a bar graph would work, which will make hers sound more credible rather than infomercial like. (She tells us she tries multiple supplements to see which ones are satisfactory, but besides hers, none are. Where is the evidence?) I do wish that she would offer some close alternatives to those who are unable to afford the wealthy lifestyle of proteins and special supplements. (Also, oddly enough, the general prices for those supplements aren't mentioned in the book but instead are on the website, and with few exceptions most of them are over 20 dollars.) I am sorry, but I was a little put off by the infomercial tone of the book trying to sell Lynnfit supplements. Also, there are people who aren't religious, and I don't think the god chapter will make them comfortable. Maybe a spiritual chapter can be used instead of god one?

I'm really unsure of whether or not to recommend this book: while I appreciate learning new details about what will help and what won't, I am a little wary of when the book seems to be an infomercial for something rather than be objective and invite observations or debates.
