Favorite Quote:  "As adults, we have a duty to ourselves and our loved ones to take full responsibility for our subconscious beliefs and our lives."

The Five Minute Snack Diet is, of course, a diet book. The central idea of the book is to break up your eating into six meals a day - 3 meals and 3 snacks - with each one being a smaller quantity of course. The book does make suggestions as to food choices, but primarily focuses on the behavior aspects. Some of the behaviors addressed are the mental approach to our health, sleep, exercise, hydration, and the multiple meals.

The book presents common sense information nicely organized by topic. It does not offer a magic cure, which is a really good thing because as we all know, there is no magic cure. It presents ideas for food choices, but does not present lists of prescribed foods.

Overall, the ideas in the book have been seen in many sources before, but the book does a good job of presenting them in a concise, organized manner.
