I read this book. Admittedly, I stopped at the 30 day plan because I actually want to do it. It takes lot of time and money if you don't have the ingredients already and are not an avid cooker. I am slowly incorporating the meal plans. I did day one. The thing that I don't like is that he never tells you exactly how much you should eat. I made his shrimp curry for example, and he gives instructions for serving four, but not one(I'm a single guy.) So I did day 1 for three days so that the food doesn't go to waste. I did fell really good after eating those meals for the day, though. I would say the book is kind of inconvenient to go through if you're doing it on a kindle. The recipes are on way separate pages from the days you eat the meal. It was very inconvenient for me to have to keep swiping and swiping and looking for the shrimp curry recipe.

I would read, 'The New Orthomolecular Nutrition' and 'Orthomolecular Medicine " by Abram Hoffer first before reading this book. Reading Hoffer will change your life forever , especially if you're an engineer, scientist, MD, vet , nurse or nutritionist and are honest that your education was largely to brain wash you.
Over 50 years ago Hoffer developed the perfect diet for the median human being and used this diet to treat terminal, chronic and degenerative diseases along with his powerful science of Orthomolecular Nutriton.
Hoffer recommend a diet of no dairy, no grains, especially wheat, no sugar, and limited to no intake of red meat to be supplemented with fish protein, and no food colorings/processed foods. He recommended a diet rich in whole foods, cruciferous vegetables and limited intake of fruit.
No one needs a 'diet' everyone needs orthomolecular nutrition and to stay on that. Hoffer/Saul in their book, 'The Vitamin Cure for Alcoholism'...
A simply exceptional book! I now recommend it to everyone!
First of all, I'd like to say that I find the book's title a bit misleading. The words "thinner" and "diet" sort of imply that this book is just for weight loss. But it's not. It is much broader in scope. The strategies in this book are meant to also help with things like low energy, low motivation, procrastination, anxiety, moodiness, poor sleep, etc. And of course, to improve health in general.
Here is how the book is structured:
First, the author explains various brain chemicals (dopamine, serotonin, etc). He presents a self-assessment questionnaire to see which of these chemicals may be in low supply. He then explains how deficiencies in these chemicals tend to be associated with various challenges, such as anxiety, low energy, poor sleep, etc - and excessive weight, food cravings etc, too.
Then for each of these chemicals he explains what to eat. E.g.,...
