The Burn {Review}

Let's start with the Pros.  This diet book for focuses on three different blocks to weight loss: inflammation, digestion, and hormones.  I think this is so important 'cause no two bodies is alike.  Everything we put into our bodies affects us different and can cause or solve different problems in our health.  This book provides a description of each type of blockage as well as a specific diet tailored toward that issue.  For the most part, the ingredients are universally available and easily recognized.

Now let's get on to the Cons.  I've had this book for two months with full intention of trying the hormone correcting diet.  But after two months, I've had to admit defeat.  No matter how long this sits on my self, I'm not going to be able to convince myself to try any of these recipes, let alone successfully complete this diet.  While the dinners sound yummy enough (picture Rosemary Chicken and Roasted Veggies), I can't stomach the idea of drink 3 cups of diet tea and 2 servings of veggie soup a day.  While I love my vegetables, such a restrictive diet doesn't sound healthy or beneficial.

While everything is laid out clearly in this book, I don't believe this to be a very balanced approach to weight loss.  Admittedly, this plan is to be followed for only 3-10 days, depending on your area of focus.  However, I just couldn't bring myself to push through this plan due to its restrictive nature, time consumption, and cost.  I would love to hear from someone who's attempted this plan and what their results were.  For now, I remain skeptical about long term affects.

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for review.  All opinions are my own.
