I have had a chance to read your book and found it very interesting.  You have a lot of insight into the ""medical"" aspects of the weight loss and exercise recommendations---I'm impressed!
Your recommendations for charting and goal setting are excellent.  Also, I think it is very important for people to understand about weight loss plateaus and you did address that very well.  The emphasis on ""life-style changes"" is right-on.  Also, I like the urge to be patient which is very important.  The pictures are very helpful to the explanation of each routine.
