Hi, all! I'm 5'2" female, 51 yrs old, with 1 adult child. When I first saw 4HB book on the best seller list, I rejected the idea because I thought the title was just a gimmick. A few months ago, I picked up the book in a bookstore, and after reading the first few pages, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! I bought the book just because I thought the content was fascinating. Finally, I was convinced to try the diet, and now I am hooked! It's been 3 1/2 weeks, and I have lost 8 lbs.
