I love her approach of "Food is wonderful! Look at all the foods you get to eat!" I also love her "power foods" list which includes blueberries, whole grains, olive oil, spinach and almonds -- it's almost a no-guilt diet...eat things you love and lose weight at the same time. Her recipes look extraordinary and the ones I've tried so far have been amazing -- all fresh food, but easy to find at the grocery store. Her emphasis on flavor and variety is also inspiring -- you don't need to eat celery and rice cakes to lose weight, far from it. There is a bit more emphasis on food combinations than I esp like at this early stage, but I'm following along for a while because it will probably help with the variety issue as much as anything else. How many of us just get sick to death of our diet food and can't bear to eat another bite? With her approach, "diet food" may actually be "great food" that you never want to give up.
