Diets Suck! by Stephen Adelé is a motivational and inspirational book written as a dialogue between Daniel, the coach, and Audrey, the woman who wants to change her life by losing weight, improve her health, and live a more fulfilled life as a wife and mother. There are seven lessons that need to be learnt before embarking on this journey and Daniel delivers them to both Audrey and readers in the form of tales whose protagonists are real people. They went through the same challenges as Audrey, trying out every single diet, and ending up putting on even more weight after finishing it. What Daniel promises is a way of life where eating healthily and exercising regularly are paramount in achieving a fit and healthy body. The book finishes with Audrey’s eating and exercising plan and a questions and answers section where readers get the chance to interact directly with the author.

The book Diets Suck is enjoyable to read and easy to understand. The title is inviting as it appeals to everybody who went through fad diets and their subsequent yo-yo effect, losing faith in achieving their weight goals. This book is here to redeem your faith and show you a healthy and realistic way to lose weight and stay that way. Audrey’s story is relatable while being motivational and inspirational at the same time. As Audrey succeeds in her life changing goal, readers are left with a strong desire to try out and apply all the “tricks” they learnt throughout the book for themselves. The references to a Facebook page, website, and other resources makes the book even more credible, creating a strong desire to be part of this extraordinary community.
