The first six hours is a systematic review of fat and all of its forms and many manifestations.The last 1.5 hours is what you can do to tame fat. I have to say, after listening to the first six hours I became depressed about prospects of weight loss. Listening to this up-front narration was akin to having someone say over and over, "you thought this, but no, you lose." Woman have it worse then men, and men have it bad. When you old it's bad. When your sedentary its bad. Fat listens, fat talks, fat reproduces. Can it get any worse. Yes, it does. Tara does an outstanding job of driving her points home. Every paragraph, I felt like another nail was being driven into my coffin.
At the end, is a happy ending? We sort of. There is hope at least. The author does a great job coming back and helping you understand the elements of of weight loss strategies. She does not promise world and deliver a postage stamp. Think of her book like light a flashlight for weight loss if you lost in a dark warehouse. At least you have a chance to get out. I highly recommend this book. You may not like it, but you will better off if you can get through it.

Any additional comments?
I think the science, case studies and research information was fabulous. For this I giver a 5. As a RN I was so interested in this book and could not put it down so to speak. But her ending about her strict deprivational dieting, exercising and described suffering - white knuckling her life and using intermittent fasting was not the message I wanted to hear. I give that a 1. I was thinking that I hope she never pushes herself fully into a binge eating disorder. I do not think the final message is a healthy pattern to emulate.Skinny jeans are nice but she is totally obsessed and it left me feeling sad for her.
