My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I generally do not review self help books, but this one peeked my interest. I periodically read self help, but how can you pass up a book that says you can still imbibe in champagne.
The Champagne Diet basically boils down to listening to your body and mind. This is not a here you have to chuck everything and your exercise it to death type of book. In fact it really is not a diet, it is a blunt guide to taking a look at yourself which I liked.
There were several areas which I completely related to, the blame game, the emotional toll of eating and more. This book is more a tool to changing your thought process when it comes to a healthier lifestyle. A refreshing self help book which I thought was quite different than the other books I have read. Definitely worth checking out if you want to make some changes in the New Year.
