My Review
The Great Weight Debate is one of those books that is full of facts and information, but it's written in a  way that's easy to follow and understand. It's educational and enlightening, and for anyone looking to lose weight or perhaps maintain their current weight, it's a very helpful guide. 
I found the layout of the book to be really nicely done. It's set up well, and I had no trouble learning about each diet included in the book. From Atkins to Keto, Weight Watchers to Jenny Craig, the book includes a multitude of options for readers looking for the right fit for their lifestyle. Each diet has information about what it is, how it works, who it might work best for, and which types of people should potentially avoid it. There are pros and cons to each one, but this book makes choosing the right option for you easy and convenient. 
As someone who was trying to lose weight pre-Covid (and succeeded in losing 20 lbs before gaining it all back thanks to being stuck inside and mindlessly snacking/overindulging to avoid boredom over the past year), I am so happy to have discovered this book. After having gone through each and every single diet plan included within, I've narrowed my options down to two different ones that I think may work best for me and my lifestyle. I'm hopeful one of them may work for me (or perhaps I may mix and match them, which is allowed for quite a few of the diet plans) and I can start shedding those pesky pounds once again. Fingers crossed!
If you're in the market for a book that's easy to follow and will help steer you in the right path on your weight loss journey, definitely check out The Great Weight Debate.
4.5 stars!

Please try not to spam posts with the same comments over and over again. Authors like seeing thoughtful comments about their books, not the same old, "I like the cover" or "sounds good" comments. While that is nice, putting some real thought and effort in is appreciated. Thank you.
