The Overnight Diet, by Caroline Apovian, MD, is an audio book that will hold the listener's attention from the very beginning to the end. This book
begins by explaining the author's background and credentials; as well as the amount of research and testing that has taken place to validate this diet as a means of effectively losing weight, building muscle, and improving one's health overall. The concept behind this diet is simple: one day to jumpstart the fat loss and then the following six days are meant to fuel up and continue the weight loss, and build muscle. Then the cycle is repeated until the weight loss goal is reached. The diet is explained in clear and concise terms.
I popped in Caroline Apovian's audio book, The Overnight Diet, one morning on the way to work and my attention was immediately caught. I did not want to stop listening once I arrived at work. It is a very easy audio book to listen to as the voices are easily understood and it felt as if I was a part of a discussion instead of just listening. A lot of information is shared at first before the specifics of the diet are outlined, which is good as it validates this particular diet and it also kept me hooked on the book. I like that this diet is overall straight-forward and simple to follow and that it is presented in that manner as well.
