Nothing New - but Good Advice

I really like Bethenny but this audiobook and her 'rules' really only presents new ideas and rules for those that haven't dieting much. Most of her rules are really common sense but she does present them in a very clear and easy to understand way. I walked away from the book with really just one new idea - something I have never heard before - and so I suppose, that makes listening and spending the money worth it. What was a nice surprise was how well she read the book - while in a bit of a monotone, for someone who is usually (or at least on air) so animated, I enjoyed listening to her voice and hearing how she chose to present the material. Not a bad idea, even for us experienced dieters, to hear her rules and consider them again.

The only thing that truly frustrated me about the book was that it does feel a bit tough to take advice from someone who seems to have never battled her weight. On her shows she seems quite thin and fit and I've never seen or heard of her being very overweight in the past. She does allude to the fact that she had a problem with food but she would certainly gain more confidence if she would have shared a bit more with her readers what her issues with food were. I was excited when she began to share that part with us but then very disappointed when she didn't discuss what her issues had been. If you're going to open up and write a book of this nature a little of the reason why you're an expert might help.

Life Changer

I love Bethenny and I love this book. I've struggled with dieting and binging and purging and all of that my whole life. Both my parents are overweight and I've gotten taught some horrible habits about food. I'm so excited about this book because it's so realistic and it gives you helpful tips to take control of your own choices and your own happiness. Now that I'm taking responsibility for what I eat and not letting a diet control me or be my scapegoat, I'm realizing just how CRAZY I've behaved in the past. I could've been so much happier and had so much more fun if I hadn't had a binge night the day before going to the beach or I didn't have a day of nothing but sugar because it's my day off no-carbs so I deserve it and then winded up with a migraine for 2 days. I've been missing out on all life has to offer and frankly, NOT living life to the fullest by letting all the food noise get to me. I'm just so glad I listened to this book, it's not only changed my view on life and gotten me to the size I'm meant to be at all times, it's helped with alchohol indulging and all sorts of other aspects and issues too. This also gives me the tools to pass on healthy eating habits to my future children, I'm only 23 and I'm so glad I listened to this book now, but no matter WHAT age you are, or what you've been previously taught, this book is going to change your life. I ESPECIALLY love hearing Bethenny read it to me because when I think back on a point in the book I can hear her voice saying it to me and it's like I have a friend who understands and is the voice of reason. Haha, anyway, Bethenny is such a great girl and I hardly ever write reviews but I had to for her because she is so amazing and is such a testament to triumph. LOVE love love her!
