No really. Change your life and make it happen. This is the kind of book you pick up from the Library as you can read it quickly and get everything you need from it in one sitting.

She undertook to study a group of 30 people ranging from the morbidly obese in wheelchairs to people who already ate a fairly healthful diet: every one of the 30 reported excellent improvements in health, some of them very dramatic.
