****--4 Stars
My Review: I found this book to be very informative and helpful. I didn't realize that there are certain diets and types of exercises that different body types should do. There's a section with a questionnaire that helps you determine which body type you are and then chapters that follow that give support to weight loss for these types. For example, some types need more protein than others. Some do better with aerobic exercise, while for others, simple walking is enough. I also didn't realize that 80% of your hormones are effected by your liver and it's important to get your liver healthy to get the best results and maximize your hormone production. There were very good tips in meal planning as well. There were some parts that were repetitive, but overall, it was a great book and one I would recommend looking into.

Basically, there are 4 main ways that a person gains weight--4 body types. Each type has a certain way they need to eat and exercise in order to burn fat. If a person doesn't take their body type into consideration, they may actually be causing it to hang on to that fat. Each type is also associated with hormones, but what surprised me was that most of the hormones are related to the liver.

Dr. Berg suggests that everyone go through a liver cleanse or detox to get the liver healthy again (at least 14 days). In some cases, a person can go months on the detox because it may take that long to get that liver healthy again. He has listed out what he feels is the best way to do so. Once that's done, a person is to eat and exercise according to his/her body type. 

I liked having chapters dedicated to the hows, whys, and benefits to dedicating your diet to your body type. Some recipes were included, as well as meal plans. I also enjoyed having good snack ideas, as my kids are always hungry. I think a person would be able to mix and match these ideas and plans to come up with something that works for them, so a person isn't eating the same 6 meals for the rest of his/her life.

For me, personally, I found this book to be very educational. I look forward to actually trying out what I've read to see how effective it really is, but it all makes sense and sounds good.

**I received a copy for review and that in no way influenced my opinion.**
