    This book is not actually for lazy girls; it's for people who have another kind of emotional baggage they need to get over before they are able to be healthy emotionally and physically. It's good, but not what I was hoping for.

    I read this book when it came out. I was a fan of the Biggest Loser (Australia) and I enjoyed her as a host. In this book A.J talks about her own struggles with weight, her traumatic past and what she did to lose weight. There is no set plan of what she did. However after this book was published she gained a lot of weight. She did comment about this books. "I look at this book now, with a certain amount of guilt." I read this book when it came out.

    Disappointing. Given the title I was hoping this book was more about tips and tricks to motivate me to lose weight and short-cuts to do that. Not so. It’s simply a TV personality telling you how to do all the right things for weight loss that you already know. DNF.

    Reiterated a lot of things I already knew and would consider common sense. I still enjoyed it, but wish it was less personal and more specific in tips and suggestions.

    (audio) good to keep mind on the matter, but some very outdated and ridiculous food suggestions.

    Only for people who seriously do not know a thing about nutrition.

Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule. A.J. has struggled with being big all her life and when she realises she is obese she decides to get professional help - Dr. Nutcase, Crusher and a nutritionist. This book chronicles how other people can follow her process and aim towards being thinner themselves. As a talking book read by the author herself, the expression and nuances of language were amazing. It was engaging to listen to, and although I couldn't say the topic matter was that interesting to me personally (knowing most of the things already), I was happy to listen to it on my walks to the bus. Something that irked me were references to Pluto Pups. What is a Pluto Pup anyway? Additionally, the subscription to eating diet yoghurt. I'm of the belief that yoghurt's fats are good for you, because that's the way it's made by cows. The amount of sugar added to those things to make them palatable is going to kill your diet anyway, and could have major effects on your metabolism. So my suggestion would be to eat pot-set yoghurt, because it naturally has lower sugar, and the fats are good for you. Another thing that didn't work in the talking book format were the lists of allowed food (too long, couldn't remember most of them by the end) and the listed menus (boring to listen to). The passages about what to do about food in general, the psychology element and exercise were good though, and I didn't get bored. If you haven't heard/read the first book (which I'm currently in the process of listening to), then the human element is slightly missing in this novel. However, A.J. does a good job of projecting her personality into it, and there's a good chance you'll be hooked anyway. I think this book is a valuable addition to any 'dieter's' bookshelf, provided you actually get into it. A.J. has some super valuable points that are useful. I disagree with fat being the only enemy (added sugar is also bad), but the underlying bones of the diet - eat less, move more - are solid. I completely support A.J.'s suggestion that if you have abuse in your life, you need to get professional help before you can do anything about your weight. I often see smokers who should be thin because of the effect cigarettes have on the body that are fat. There has to be some underlying cause there, and getting psychiatric help is a great idea. If you can prove you have a problem, Australia has a 'Mental Health Care Plan' that means you will be able to see a psychologist cheaply. No excuses!

    This audiobook did have a lot of good information about food, fitness and healthier living. It is not a "lazy" guide though. It advises you to track all of your food, including fat and calories, exercise every day, tackle your emotional issues, make goals, motivational posters etc. Because it does have good information--including a section on helping your kids be healthier--I did give it 3 stars. However, it is definitely not what was advertised. There is nothing lazy about this approach. It is This audiobook did have a lot of good information about food, fitness and healthier living.

However, it is definitely not what was advertised. There is nothing lazy about this approach. It is actively working on and seeking a better, healthier, fitter, more emotionally stable you. I also marked it down because it was very repetitive. I literally took disc 8 out and looked at the number because I thought I must have repeated a disc. I skipped disc 9 as it seemed to be her reading me someone's twelve week food and exercise diary. If I had been reading the book, I probably would have skimmed it but I'm not sitting for an hour listening to that.

    In 50 years' time, people are going to be reading stuff like this and reacting the way we do when we hear or read about women in the 50's and 60's being encouraged by their doctors to take up smoking in order to prevent weight gain during pregnancy. The information is scientifically completely inaccurate. Her explanations of fats and sugars and how they are treated by the body are totally upside down. NO WONDER she put all the weight back on so soon after. She won't get healthy until she gets so In 50 years' time, people are going to be reading stuff like this and reacting the way we do when we hear or read about women in the 50's and 60's being encouraged by their doctors to take up smoking in order to prevent weight gain during pregnancy.

Please don't listen to a word of this if you are serious about lifetime health and not just a crash fad diet.

    I picked up this book because of the colour of cover and the title as I am trying to lose some weight at present. I thought it was going to be comedy fiction book on losing weight but I was surprised to find it is a true story on weight loss and how to go about it and that the author was Australian. I found it very interesting, A.J. Rochester is a good narrator and she talks to you and asks questions during the book which I found pretty good. She also talked about a lot of other diets and what co I picked up this book because of the colour of cover and the title as I am trying to lose some weight at present.

    I guess as far as weight loss books go, this would have been one of the better ones, but it still didn't hold much of my interest. There was nothing here that common sense couldn't tell you, or the plethora of magazine articles and blog posts that I've read over many years. I liked the conversational writing style and use of personal experience, but overall found myself underwhelmed.

I think in large part I have a problem with the project of the book - as much as it claims to be about health, it is clearly aimed at weight loss and still felt too regimented for a long-term lifestyle change.

    Originally I picked up this book thinking it was telling her story on how she lost weight, which it kind of is, however she also provides and tell you how she did it not only by eating healthily but also how much exercise she did and how she managed to fit that into her day to day life of looking after her son. I thought the book wasn't bad, but although I liked it as a short read I don't really enjoy reading these genre.

    This is just as good as "Confessions of a Reformed Dieter." My only complaint is that sometimes it seems like it's just a repeat of the same information. She said she wrote this follow-up book because so many people say "that's great that you lost weight, but HOW did you?" She provides eating plans at the back of the book, but most of the rest of it is really just Confessions Redux. This is just as good as "Confessions of a Reformed Dieter."

    I got so lazy that I started reading it last year got halfway through put it down, exercised more & still managed to put on more weight. I just finished it & AJ gives some great advice. It is easy to read & practical. I now want to read her other book. I admire her, good on her for losing 45kgs!

    Listening to the litany of things to eat and eating situations was not great, but I LOVED A.J.'s writing, humor, reading style, and philosophy on not-dieting. Great resource for living a balanced, healthy life!

    A really invaluable guide. It teaches you the most important things about weight loss and healthy living but focuses a lot on why a person might be fat in the first place.

    It would be a better read if I didn't know she had put all the weight (and more) back on. It would be a better read if I didn't know she had put all the weight (and more) back on.
