I am a huge Turbo Kick fan and love Chalene's energy and spnuky sassy style, so I really wanted to like this book. There are some good tips for basic goal setting and dreaming big gotta appreciate her enthusiasm and zest for life but a few things just really didn't sit right with me. For one, her comment to really try to stay married if you really love your kids irked me she further adds that kids of divorce are more likely to be obese (this is obviously complicated issue and there is conflicting data on the subject). It is wonderful that Chalene has a strong marriage, but this jab at those that are in a different situation felt lame and preachy.Additionally, her recipes were so disappointing. How can anyone call a recipe made with Shakeology, Pudding Mix, and Crystal Light healthy yuck. The other cleaner recipes were ridiculous I don't need to know how to toast a piece of bread or how to bake a sweet potato and sprinkle nutmeg on it (that one she calls Sweet Potato Pie ). The exercises were all pretty basic too. This might be a good book for someone just beginning to work out and/or find themselves, but it was definitely not for me. I'm still a fan of her work and her energy, she is no doubt a rockin' chick, just not at all a fan of this book.
