"Changing the way to think about eating."

Rating: 5 stars
Dieting is a huge business where everyone touting something has "the answer." So does anyone have it? Yes and no. Some diets work for some people, for a while, and some don't. Often it's not easy to follow through with any diet plan, so we keep searching. Or we just give up and accept our unhealthy situation.

If you want to change your thinking and focus on how you perform rather that how you look, Haas has a great plan to follow. This book, along with his previous book (Eat To Win)(although less up to date), offers an invaluable guide on why our minds and bodies behave the way they do given our exercise habits and the food we eat. Haas focuses on objective research in the field of peak performance and has a strong track record of working with champion athletes. With his research, it's easy to debunk most other "trendy" diets. The beauty of "eating to perform" is that you'll automatically get all the other health benefits of moderate exercise and intelligent eating.

"It works, and it's so easy to follow"

Rating: 5 stars
The "Ultimate Ratio" of protein, carbohydrates and fat advocated in this book makes weight and fat loss almost effortless. Planning the right ratio of what to eat is as easy as selecting an item from each food group (listed in a handy chart) for each meal (and snacks). This plan even allows for cheating and eating at fast food restaurants! There are recipes in the back of the book for quick nutritious meals that are tasty and don't leave me feeling hungry or deprived. Not only is this an easy fat/weight loss plan, I am also eating my way to good health and high energy. I can really see results with this plan and I don't feel like I am on a diet!
