Some reviewers give this book 5 stars, others give it 1. So how do you know whom to believe? I think I can help you.
This book is NOT for you if: - You are looking for a magic weight loss plan, or a new theory of weight control - You are looking for a lot of recipes
This book MIGHT be for you if: - You subscribe to the old, tried-and-true formula for weight loss (eat fewer calories, exercise more), but need to know the details and need some help in getting, and staying, motivated.
The book is based on a version of the familiar food pyramid, and the diet can be summarized as: Eat a lot -- in fact as much as you want -- of fruits and vegetables (most of your favorites will be allowed, and you can eat them raw or cooked, and use fresh or frozen, and in some cases canned). Eat limited, though reasonable, amounts of carbs, protein and dairy, and fats. Exercise 30 minutes a day.
If you try it, good luck to you. I'm trying it, too;...
Cliche ridden, poorly organized, impossible to use in real life. Recipes make 8 servings. How many times do you see 8 member households on a diet? Calls for well-known processed foods disproven for health and wellness: egg beaters, nonfat milk, margarine. How far behind can Mayo be? The latest science shows butter to be a necessary and healthy part of a diet.Much needed for brain health. This book has no central organizing principle. Different chapters are written by different "experts" who sometimes even contradict each other. Do not buy this book. It is a waste of money. I couldn't find one page that gave me a suggested outline for what to eat that day. The book is a mess. Linda West Eckhardt, James Beard award winning cookbook author. Editor: Everybody Eats News
This "diet" is based on the premise of eat less, move more. That is a good plan overall. The major problem I find with this book is that instead of presenting information concisely and clearly, it is page after page after page of gimmicky graphics and repetitious blah blah. It would be ever so much more helpful to just be written straight forward...but then again, would anyone pay $20 for that??? I was so tired of trying to glean the basic facts from all the glitter that I found the book useless. I would not recommend it.
