I'm fairly certain I could think of negative things to say about this book, but I'm not going to. Everyone seems to have that covered. But for those upset about "lumpy-ass" etc. talk, saying it isn't encouraging--there are thousands of "encouraging" books out there. They aren't working. The fact is, aspertame, processed foods, etc ARE bad for you. Like it or not, it's the truth, regardless of who's pointing it out.
