I was interested in this diet because I've been told by several doctors and nutritionists that my main problem with my weight is that I don't eat enough. My metabolism is in survival mode. However, the diets they gave me were always either just a matter of eating more of what I was already eating or had some sort of a secret to them that I never figured out (and after reading this book I realized that some of my substitutions were probably messing up what the diet was trying to do for me). This book finally makes me understand the method for kicking a damaged metabolism back into high gear and getting it processing food again (rather than storing it as fat).
What makes this diet seem great is that there is a good variety of food, great sounding recipes, and a goal focused more on revamping the dieter's metabolism than fretting over the weight on the scale (or BMI). Also, the author has a realistic idea about work/life schedules and realizes that not everyone is at home 24/7 to make gourmet diet meals (or even has the cooking ability to make such meals), so she has a lot of suggestions and recipes for quick and on-the-go meals and snacks. The author also uses a very positive and motivational voice throughout the book that makes it fun and quick to read.
- With the exception of the dairy ban, the diet seems pretty well balanced across the weekly rotation.
- Requires exercise, but doesn't have unrealistic expectations for the types and frequency of exercise.
- Has vegetarian and vegan options. The author uses a broad definition of `vegetarian,' so her suggestion for eating eggs and fish might offend some types of vegetarians. However, the vegan option covers those who won't go the fish and egg route.
- Has options for gluten free dieters.
- Includes meal plans (so you can dive into the diet without a lot of planning), but encourages you to modify them or create your own from scratch.
- Lots of recipes look to be tasty and easy. Many of them can be cooked in slow cookers in large batches and frozen for later consumption (like making your own frozen diet entrees).
- You get to eat a lot and often
- There are products that can be bought to accompany this diet, but they aren't required (or even mentioned that much within the main content).
The author has a background in agricultural science, so she often applies how certain foods that we eat are used on animals to increase bulk, etc. Although I can see how this applies (we are animals), it comes across at times as being somewhat out of place. I don't digest food the same as a horse, cow, etc. or have the same nutritional needs as these creatures, so why would a food necessarily do that same thing to me? I would never tell someone to not eat sugar because it gives degus nearly instant diabetes because it wouldn't be logical to do so, so why is the author applying farm animal dietary concerns to humans?
I was shocked that I found a new drug guide that was in such good condition and the price could not get any better.
I want to thank Amazon.com you are so great.
