For those who hate the cutesy pictures in this book and in the YOU series written with Dr. Oz, I strongly recommend Dr. Roizen's books Real Age and The Real Age Makeover. These are scientifically written and contain only information that has been verified by five or more meta-studies, including long-term, epidemiological studies and controlled lab tests, always double-blind and peer-reviewed.

This Is Your Do-Over, like the YOU books, certainly counts as one of the cutesy ones written to entertain a nonscientific audience, whereas the Real Age books are aimed at intelligent readers who hope to increase their lifespan while living in top form. I once saw Dr. Roizen interviewed about why he and Oz had written the YOU series and he said, without seeming to want to flatter women, that the YOU books were a "dumbed-down" series aimed at men, who, overall, have less interest in the minute scientific details of weight loss and health. In a culture that devalues overweight women, it makes sense that women would read enough books and articles on weight loss to become highly literate in the science of health.

All that said, I have to rate this book highly in spite of the cutesiness because Dr. Roizen has proven his trustworthiness in the Real Age books and there is new information here that is so helpful it outweighs the silly pictures. Highly recommended.

I need to remember NOT to take out books written by this guy OR Oz...I think I can handle learning new things without their cutesy (and annoying) illustrations, thank you.
