I loved this book. There are so many diet books out there that you just
tend not pay attention any more ....but this is one is different
...down to earth, easy to read and makes you think....just stop and
think about what makes you eat, why are you making these choices , and
finally realize that there is no miracle pill.
I have started reading the Miracle Pill and it is phenomenal!!! I've been letting everyone in my life now about it! This is truly a book for ALL body types and not just people looking to loose weight. It has increased my understanding of how my body talks to me and that I have the answers for me if I just listen. Thank you for increasing my power to control the condition of my body and life!!!!
my goodness, I love this book! It has changed the way I see myself and
the way I see food. A must read for anyone wanting to be healthy!
--AmyI am 30
yrs. old and the mother of 3 boys. I have struggled with my weight and a
very unhealthy body image since I was 9 yrs old...including eating disorders, and every diet,
exercise, personal trainer...all
the while knowing I needed to first change my heart and how I felt
about myself. I just did not know how.
I just finished
your book but have been practicing it's principles for about a week.
I know I am on the road to being healed. I can feel it inside me! I
truly feel grateful for my body, which I can honestly say I don't think I
ever truly have been. I know this is only the beginning, but I have
so much hope and so much to look forward to! I feel like I now have the
tools to live a healthy life inside and out. I truly hope you know how grateful I am to you! You are an inspiration in every sense of the word! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Tres is 'living proof' that eating well and finding health are possible,
and that you don't have to be stuck with over 100 lbs. to lose! I saw
her on my local morning news and decided to buy her book on Amazon. This
book is designed to change your life if you step up and decide to make
the changes stick. I'm also a 'foodie' and appreciated Tres' perspective
that food is to be enjoyed and the process of losing weight does not
require us to 'punish' ourselves, but to make the most of the wonderful
food choices that exist. The recipes alone are worth the purchase
price!! Her approach to exercise is realistic and the whole book is
encouraging. What a bargain to get such well thought out guidance for
the cover price of her book! Thanks Tres!
I am so happy that I attended your workshop on Saturday. No matter what, I am moving full steam ahead. Everything you said
is what I already know. I just keep jumping on that band wagon that
says you can do it quickly and I just crash and burn. My new years
resolutions were the following:
Treat everyone, including myself, like a child of God. Be reasonable.
Again, thank you for the wonderful sharing of your journey, insights and especially your heart. Looking for a protege? Sign me up!
met you on Saturday at the TJED forum. Your book is an answer to my
many prayers on weight control--I only wish I thought of it first :)
am enjoying every page, your humor is perfect. I experienced the
"click" this morning as I have begun reading your book. I relate to you
on so many levels! I have struggled with my weight all my life and I
have been the "big-boned girl". I am not a chef but I REALLY enjoy
cooking and FOOD!
I have tried
every diet--most recently the HGC diet. Last year I lost 60 lbs with HCG
and figured that would be my way to manage my weight. This diet has
done more damage to my psyche than the injection of the hormone. I
love the words, "we were designed by God to enjoy food and take pleasure
in eating." Almost everything I have read teaches me to deny
myself--and to NEVER eat those "treats" again. I now understand there
has to be balance and to seek for the best "treats".
Thank you for this book---for these words of truth. I will be a success story as I work my way through this book.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
I have struggled with weight loss for several years But after reading
this book I feel confident in my ability to lay out a plan for weight
loss for life. Each chapter presents direction and gives the supporting
material to back it up. I have recommended this to several friends and
will continue to do so!
Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful "vision" and "miracles" with us last week. I
am enjoying reading your book and working to apply the principles in my
own life. In all my experiences with weight loss and lifestyle change,
"Miracle Pill" makes the most sense of anything I've ever done. To put it simply: I'm a believer! Thank you again for sharing your "miracle" with us.

I found this book to be a excellent guide to real, lasting success. An
excellent resource for anyone sick of fad diets and ready for a lasting
THANK YOU very much for coming to the Logan Deseret Bookstore. It was a thrill to have you come and meet our customers. People are talking about your book, Miracle Pill, and "word of mouth" advertising is very good in smaller communities like ours. You have created a TREMENDOUS book that is full of "tried and true" approaches to healthy eating attitudes and subsequent weight control. It is a fascinating and informative book.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their
health and their eating style. The book is well thought out, easy to
understand, has good recipes, and is encouraging!
For the first time, I can honestly say I believe with all my heart that I am healthy and can live out my life thin and healthy!
I can't even begin to express the joy I feel and the freedom from
letting go of that label and seeing myself differently and loving myself
