Trim Healthy Mama Plan: Keep It Simple, Keep It Sane Reviews

    Nope. Their "Do the Doonk" YouTube video completely discredited any shrapnel of actual sound dietary advice. In the first couple chapters they admitted to being freed from vegan views because of scripture, but don't eat pork because scripture. I taken issue with claiming to be freed an...

    A friend of mine raves about this plan and has lost quite a bit of weight by doing this, and so has her family. I read this and found it interesting. The authors make it very clear that they are not medical professionals, so I wasn't ever clear on how they came up with this plan with n...

    I put reading this book off because the original THM book was a bit bigger and harder to read. This one is more user friendly and gets to the point much better than the original THM book. It?s a great way to start on healthy living using the Trim Healthy Mama plan which works well fo...

    Good info, the cutesy writing style was not my thing. ...

    I purchased the giant, 600+ page Trim Healthy Mama book when it first came out. I love the information and recipes but it does take some muscles to lug it out when you want to look something up! I guess that was a common complaint which is why Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison now se...

    This book basically taught how to avoid spiking my blood sugar. I love that to practice this diet there is no elimination of any food groups and I have even found a way to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. It's only been about a couple weeks since I've started reading this book but I have alre...

    Hate the name; love the concept, even with the pseudoscience and weird prooftexting. ...

    Someone recommended this book to me and it was overall just okay, to be honest. It relies mostly on whole foods which is a good thing, but I'm not sure about the "science" behind their meal switching theory. They recommend eating either more fat-centered meals that are low in carbs (S ...

    I may come back to this book at some point. Maybe the problem is me, but when I think of "simple", " sane", and "easy-does-it" I don't envision eliminating all sugar, buying food items I've never heard of and don't know how to use/get, and changing all my eating habits. Seriously, this...

    3.5 stars. For what this is, I thought it was great. It?s a diet manual written in a funny, relatable way with lots of applicable examples for many different populations. The theory is that you have E and S meals- energizing and satisfying. Your body gets its fuel from carbs (E) is f...

    I appreciate the emphasis on Whole Foods and no sugar (though I'm not sure I can truly do that 100%). The theory is a lot like carb cycling but I'm a big fan of the Weston Price principles so I really appreciate the lean that direction: no recommendations for aspartame-laden (or even S...

    I feel like I just learned an entirely new way to look at food and how it's important to eat it in a way where we burn what we eat and leave our bodies hungry enough to then work on our fat stores. The beginning of the book did a pretty good job of introducing us to some of the more co...

    Man. I don't diet, and the idea of a Bible-based plan that doesn't ask me to ditch an entire food group was really appealing to me. The two sisters that wrote this did a great job, and I love that there are entire chapters on how to adjust THM to your situation in life: pregnant/nursin...

    Five stars because this book is thorough, enjoyable to read, and convincing. I think that covers all the bases for a life-changing book about diet and nutrition. I?ve been following the keto diet since I got a horrific triglyceride count last November (9 months). I?m ready to add s...

    Helpful but overwhelming to just read through. This is more like a reference book. I've only just begun implementing this plan, so I can't really give that a review, but the instructions and explanations are thorough and seem to make sense. I appreciate that though the authors sell ...

    I read this book to fulfill the goal read a book about food. While i agree this books premise, that sugar is evil and addictive, i'm not sure i want to jump in wholeheartedly in following this plan. Although, i did take a lot of notes, in case i change my mind. it got a bit confusing w...

    I felt like I was being lectured for the entirety of the book. The style of "humor" was off-putting. It honestly reminded me of a 50's housewife handing out backhanded compliments. The diet itself has little, if any, scientific basis. They also promote their own products constantly. I...

    Awesome and fun read! This is probably the 1st diet related book I have ever finished. I hate to call it "diet" because it's not a diet like all the fads out there. It's a way of eating for life. It makes sense! I have loved this edition so much, I ordered the 1st as well. Cookbook ...

    I am really looking forward to implementing some of these changes in my life. I am currently a little overweight but my greater concern is developing Type 2 Diabetes. Diabetes is prevalent in my family history and I have always watched my A1C levels as I have gotten older. I am now alm...

    This book is essential reading to understand how the Trim Healthy Mama Plan works. Essentially the diet consists of cutting out all sugar, artificial sweeteners, white flour, processed foods and white potatoes and rice. You also eat your fatty (S ) foods separate from your healthy carb...

    Totally confusing Thoroughly confusing, even for an intelligent person with two college degrees. S, E, crossover, Fuel Pull, what the heck? It's a surefire way to be so confused about what to eat when you're hungry that you just give up and eat whatever's handy. They look pretty and...

    Interesting ideas, but in the end I'm just not sure I can get behind an eating plan that's based on "biblical foods" rather than scientific research. (Not sure that it matters, but I am Christian--this just doesn't seem like a sound approach to food to me.) I think I'll just stick with...

    This book basically taught how to avoid spiking my blood sugar. I love that to practice this diet there is no elimination of any food groups and I have even found a way to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. It's only been about a couple weeks since I've started reading this book but I have alre...

    Someone recommended this book to me and it was overall just okay, to be honest. It relies mostly on whole foods which is a good thing, but I'm not sure about the "science" behind their meal switching theory. They recommend eating either more fat-centered meals that are low in carbs (S ...

    I may come back to this book at some point. Maybe the problem is me, but when I think of "simple", " sane", and "easy-does-it" I don't envision eliminating all sugar, buying food items I've never heard of and don't know how to use/get, and changing all my eating habits. Seriously, this...

    3.5 stars. For what this is, I thought it was great. It?s a diet manual written in a funny, relatable way with lots of applicable examples for many different populations. The theory is that you have E and S meals- energizing and satisfying. Your body gets its fuel from carbs (E) is f...

    I appreciate the emphasis on Whole Foods and no sugar (though I'm not sure I can truly do that 100%). The theory is a lot like carb cycling but I'm a big fan of the Weston Price principles so I really appreciate the lean that direction: no recommendations for aspartame-laden (or even S...

    I feel like I just learned an entirely new way to look at food and how it's important to eat it in a way where we burn what we eat and leave our bodies hungry enough to then work on our fat stores. The beginning of the book did a pretty good job of introducing us to some of the more co...

    Man. I don't diet, and the idea of a Bible-based plan that doesn't ask me to ditch an entire food group was really appealing to me. The two sisters that wrote this did a great job, and I love that there are entire chapters on how to adjust THM to your situation in life: pregnant/nursin...

    Five stars because this book is thorough, enjoyable to read, and convincing. I think that covers all the bases for a life-changing book about diet and nutrition. I?ve been following the keto diet since I got a horrific triglyceride count last November (9 months). I?m ready to add s...

    Helpful but overwhelming to just read through. This is more like a reference book. I've only just begun implementing this plan, so I can't really give that a review, but the instructions and explanations are thorough and seem to make sense. I appreciate that though the authors sell ...

    I read this book to fulfill the goal read a book about food. While i agree this books premise, that sugar is evil and addictive, i'm not sure i want to jump in wholeheartedly in following this plan. Although, i did take a lot of notes, in case i change my mind. it got a bit confusing w...

    I felt like I was being lectured for the entirety of the book. The style of "humor" was off-putting. It honestly reminded me of a 50's housewife handing out backhanded compliments. The diet itself has little, if any, scientific basis. They also promote their own products constantly. I...

    Awesome and fun read! This is probably the 1st diet related book I have ever finished. I hate to call it "diet" because it's not a diet like all the fads out there. It's a way of eating for life. It makes sense! I have loved this edition so much, I ordered the 1st as well. Cookbook ...

    Totally confusing Thoroughly confusing, even for an intelligent person with two college degrees. S, E, crossover, Fuel Pull, what the heck? It's a surefire way to be so confused about what to eat when you're hungry that you just give up and eat whatever's handy. They look pretty and...

    Love Trim Healthy Mama approach to life! And Serene and Pearl are delightful. I loved reading this book and the other Trim Healthy Mama books. I have tried many of the recipes and am loving them so far. I look forward to delving deeper and changing my lifestyle for the better to imp...

    Interesting ideas, but in the end I'm just not sure I can get behind an eating plan that's based on "biblical foods" rather than scientific research. (Not sure that it matters, but I am Christian--this just doesn't seem like a sound approach to food to me.) I think I'll just stick with...

    Reread this to get myself remotivated. It did help me get back on track! Fun to read and easy to understand. Lots of helpful information. ...

    Life changing! ...

    I read the original book. This one is much easier to understand and user friendly. ...

    A fun, informative, freeing read! ...

    Enjoyed! 2 tips I want to implement from the book are waiting 3-4 hrs between eating. And use of gelatin and collagen into food preperation. ...

    Loved it! Currently work g the plan. ...

    Very solid concepts of eating carbs, fats, and protein in effective ways. A little too much promotion of the products they sell, but good nutritional guidance. ...

    This book basically taught how to avoid spiking my blood sugar. I love that to practice this diet there is no elimination of any food groups and I have even found a way to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. It's only been about a couple weeks since I've started reading this book but I have alre...

    Hate the name; love the concept, even with the pseudoscience and weird prooftexting. ...

    Someone recommended this book to me and it was overall just okay, to be honest. It relies mostly on whole foods which is a good thing, but I'm not sure about the "science" behind their meal switching theory. They recommend eating either more fat-centered meals that are low in carbs (S ...

    I may come back to this book at some point. Maybe the problem is me, but when I think of "simple", " sane", and "easy-does-it" I don't envision eliminating all sugar, buying food items I've never heard of and don't know how to use/get, and changing all my eating habits. Seriously, this...

    3.5 stars. For what this is, I thought it was great. It?s a diet manual written in a funny, relatable way with lots of applicable examples for many different populations. The theory is that you have E and S meals- energizing and satisfying. Your body gets its fuel from carbs (E) is f...

    I appreciate the emphasis on Whole Foods and no sugar (though I'm not sure I can truly do that 100%). The theory is a lot like carb cycling but I'm a big fan of the Weston Price principles so I really appreciate the lean that direction: no recommendations for aspartame-laden (or even S...

    I feel like I just learned an entirely new way to look at food and how it's important to eat it in a way where we burn what we eat and leave our bodies hungry enough to then work on our fat stores. The beginning of the book did a pretty good job of introducing us to some of the more co...

    Man. I don't diet, and the idea of a Bible-based plan that doesn't ask me to ditch an entire food group was really appealing to me. The two sisters that wrote this did a great job, and I love that there are entire chapters on how to adjust THM to your situation in life: pregnant/nursin...

    Five stars because this book is thorough, enjoyable to read, and convincing. I think that covers all the bases for a life-changing book about diet and nutrition. I?ve been following the keto diet since I got a horrific triglyceride count last November (9 months). I?m ready to add s...

    Helpful but overwhelming to just read through. This is more like a reference book. I've only just begun implementing this plan, so I can't really give that a review, but the instructions and explanations are thorough and seem to make sense. I appreciate that though the authors sell ...

    I read this book to fulfill the goal read a book about food. While i agree this books premise, that sugar is evil and addictive, i'm not sure i want to jump in wholeheartedly in following this plan. Although, i did take a lot of notes, in case i change my mind. it got a bit confusing w...

    I felt like I was being lectured for the entirety of the book. The style of "humor" was off-putting. It honestly reminded me of a 50's housewife handing out backhanded compliments. The diet itself has little, if any, scientific basis. They also promote their own products constantly. I...

    Awesome and fun read! This is probably the 1st diet related book I have ever finished. I hate to call it "diet" because it's not a diet like all the fads out there. It's a way of eating for life. It makes sense! I have loved this edition so much, I ordered the 1st as well. Cookbook ...

    I am really looking forward to implementing some of these changes in my life. I am currently a little overweight but my greater concern is developing Type 2 Diabetes. Diabetes is prevalent in my family history and I have always watched my A1C levels as I have gotten older. I am now alm...

    Totally confusing Thoroughly confusing, even for an intelligent person with two college degrees. S, E, crossover, Fuel Pull, what the heck? It's a surefire way to be so confused about what to eat when you're hungry that you just give up and eat whatever's handy. They look pretty and...

    Interesting ideas, but in the end I'm just not sure I can get behind an eating plan that's based on "biblical foods" rather than scientific research. (Not sure that it matters, but I am Christian--this just doesn't seem like a sound approach to food to me.) I think I'll just stick with...

    Nope. Their "Do the Doonk" YouTube video completely discredited any shrapnel of actual sound dietary advice. In the first couple chapters they admitted to being freed from vegan views because of scripture, but don't eat pork because scripture. I taken issue with claiming to be freed an...

    A friend of mine raves about this plan and has lost quite a bit of weight by doing this, and so has her family. I read this and found it interesting. The authors make it very clear that they are not medical professionals, so I wasn't ever clear on how they came up with this plan with n...

    I put reading this book off because the original THM book was a bit bigger and harder to read. This one is more user friendly and gets to the point much better than the original THM book. It?s a great way to start on healthy living using the Trim Healthy Mama plan which works well fo...

    Good info, the cutesy writing style was not my thing. ...

    I purchased the giant, 600+ page Trim Healthy Mama book when it first came out. I love the information and recipes but it does take some muscles to lug it out when you want to look something up! I guess that was a common complaint which is why Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison now se...

    This book basically taught how to avoid spiking my blood sugar. I love that to practice this diet there is no elimination of any food groups and I have even found a way to stop drinking Dr. Pepper. It's only been about a couple weeks since I've started reading this book but I have alre...

    Hate the name; love the concept, even with the pseudoscience and weird prooftexting. ...

    Someone recommended this book to me and it was overall just okay, to be honest. It relies mostly on whole foods which is a good thing, but I'm not sure about the "science" behind their meal switching theory. They recommend eating either more fat-centered meals that are low in carbs (S ...

    I may come back to this book at some point. Maybe the problem is me, but when I think of "simple", " sane", and "easy-does-it" I don't envision eliminating all sugar, buying food items I've never heard of and don't know how to use/get, and changing all my eating habits. Seriously, this...

    3.5 stars. For what this is, I thought it was great. It?s a diet manual written in a funny, relatable way with lots of applicable examples for many different populations. The theory is that you have E and S meals- energizing and satisfying. Your body gets its fuel from carbs (E) is f...

    I appreciate the emphasis on Whole Foods and no sugar (though I'm not sure I can truly do that 100%). The theory is a lot like carb cycling but I'm a big fan of the Weston Price principles so I really appreciate the lean that direction: no recommendations for aspartame-laden (or even S...

    I feel like I just learned an entirely new way to look at food and how it's important to eat it in a way where we burn what we eat and leave our bodies hungry enough to then work on our fat stores. The beginning of the book did a pretty good job of introducing us to some of the more co...

    Man. I don't diet, and the idea of a Bible-based plan that doesn't ask me to ditch an entire food group was really appealing to me. The two sisters that wrote this did a great job, and I love that there are entire chapters on how to adjust THM to your situation in life: pregnant/nursin...

    Five stars because this book is thorough, enjoyable to read, and convincing. I think that covers all the bases for a life-changing book about diet and nutrition. I?ve been following the keto diet since I got a horrific triglyceride count last November (9 months). I?m ready to add s...

    Helpful but overwhelming to just read through. This is more like a reference book. I've only just begun implementing this plan, so I can't really give that a review, but the instructions and explanations are thorough and seem to make sense. I appreciate that though the authors sell ...

    I read this book to fulfill the goal read a book about food. While i agree this books premise, that sugar is evil and addictive, i'm not sure i want to jump in wholeheartedly in following this plan. Although, i did take a lot of notes, in case i change my mind. it got a bit confusing w...

    I felt like I was being lectured for the entirety of the book. The style of "humor" was off-putting. It honestly reminded me of a 50's housewife handing out backhanded compliments. The diet itself has little, if any, scientific basis. They also promote their own products constantly. I...

    Awesome and fun read! This is probably the 1st diet related book I have ever finished. I hate to call it "diet" because it's not a diet like all the fads out there. It's a way of eating for life. It makes sense! I have loved this edition so much, I ordered the 1st as well. Cookbook ...

    I am really looking forward to implementing some of these changes in my life. I am currently a little overweight but my greater concern is developing Type 2 Diabetes. Diabetes is prevalent in my family history and I have always watched my A1C levels as I have gotten older. I am now alm...

    This book is essential reading to understand how the Trim Healthy Mama Plan works. Essentially the diet consists of cutting out all sugar, artificial sweeteners, white flour, processed foods and white potatoes and rice. You also eat your fatty (S ) foods separate from your healthy carb...

    Totally confusing Thoroughly confusing, even for an intelligent person with two college degrees. S, E, crossover, Fuel Pull, what the heck? It's a surefire way to be so confused about what to eat when you're hungry that you just give up and eat whatever's handy. They look pretty and...

    Love Trim Healthy Mama approach to life! And Serene and Pearl are delightful. I loved reading this book and the other Trim Healthy Mama books. I have tried many of the recipes and am loving them so far. I look forward to delving deeper and changing my lifestyle for the better to imp...

    Interesting ideas, but in the end I'm just not sure I can get behind an eating plan that's based on "biblical foods" rather than scientific research. (Not sure that it matters, but I am Christian--this just doesn't seem like a sound approach to food to me.) I think I'll just stick with...

    Reread this to get myself remotivated. It did help me get back on track! Fun to read and easy to understand. Lots of helpful information. ...

    Life changing! ...

    I read the original book. This one is much easier to understand and user friendly. ...
