At just 5' tall & 115 lbs, I've struggled for more than 30 years to keep my weight down both through diet and physical activity. As I neared 50 years of age, I was up to an about 7 hrs of cardio per week and was concerned because I had actually gained 5 lbs in the past 2 years. I was intrigued when I heard the Author saying that cardio activity was more likely to cause you to put on weight than to lose it. Got the book and the explanation in it made sense so I decided to give it a try although I was very skeptical that I was not going to be hungry with the low calorie intake this diet stipulated. I committed to following the diet as closely as I could - in particular eating the much larger breakfasts than my customary bowl of instant oatmeal. I've been amazed at how full I feel after each meal and in between meals. I've cut down on the amount of cardio I do each week and have started using the gravity straps. The undesired 5 lbs quickly fell off and I've indeed experienced a 'reconstruction' of my body shape. While the diet prescribed in the book is not for folks who just like bland foods, if you enjoy a bit more flavour and are open to experimenting with some different combinations, I would wholeheartedly recommend trying this new healthy lifestyle change.

Great info backed by research. Gives insight into why shorter women find it harder to lose and keep weight off. Menu plan is doable with "normal" food easily purchased at any supermarket. I felt satisfied eating these meals. I have always eaten breakfast but with this plan of eating most of my calories with breakfast and lunch I had more energy. Exercise program is easy to follow once you purchases the gravity straps

It is very interesting and I am enjoying it very much - there is alot of good information in it and I am gradually trying to implement everything in order to lose some much needed pounds on my petite frame.

The only complaint that I have is that I don't like exercising with the resistance bands. I know they are supposed to be so easy and convenient, etc. I did it a couple of times and it just isn't for me. Overall the book is inspiring and makes sense. We can't look at things the way everyone else does. It also makes me laugh what is considered petite. I am 4'11" and I find it annoying that petite is 5'4" which to me is so tall- I wish

Some different points of view, but nothing startling. There are many books that use catch phrases such as "petite" to sell, but few that achieve their goal.
