I have not read this book but would like to hear opinions too. I'm not big on following a specific 'diet' but I imagine it would have good tips like many other diet books.




It's the weekend so replies are slow sometimes. Hopefully we'll hear more about this book during the week

I read the book months ago, and if I am remembering correctly, it's not really a "diet." It's about healthy changes. I have read so many that I could be wrong, though...lol. I'll check it out really quickly later tonight and see if I'm right.

jnmurra is pretty much right. It's not a diet, it teaches you how to eat to live, not live to eat. For example, it helps you introduce nuts in your diet to reduce hunger pains, how to add certain things like flaxseed and other things. It also shows you how to do an easy "anybody can do it from home without buying hundreds of dollars of workout equipment" workout. You can also get the same workouts on their website downloaded for free (an unusual thing in today's diet industry).
I have learned quite a few things to help in my daily life, it has some great educational and humorous explanations about how your body works and why it does what it does and why eating the things they suggest helps you in the long run. They also have, on their website, a menu planner where you can tell the computer what you want to eat (out of a list of things they recommend) and then it will print out your menu for you for the week. Pretty neat.

I would recommend checking it out from the library first, or checking out their website first, then buying the book if you need a more frequent hands-on approach. It's a back-to-basics approach and is great to get rid of all those refined/processed/chemically changed foods that they sell all over the place now.

I hope that helps!

Oh, absolutely on the almonds and pecans as long as you don't overdo it because they're a source of good fat.

Ditto, he recommends eating a handful of almonds about twenty minutes before a meal (if you're hungry) to help turn your hunger tank on before you start eating. It takes the brain twenty minutes to hear from the stomach that it's full, so by eating a handful of almonds before dinner, you are jump starting that mechanism to tell your brain "hey, I'm not starving to death anymore, I can stop eating now". It works!

I just finished reading the book and let me tell you that for someone that has read many many books, studied & researched this (Kinesiology major), I give it[img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img] WAY up.

Like the others said, this is not a diet. It's a book that teaches you how your body works in every level. (emotionally, chemically, physically etc...) Where exactly does that slice of pizza go when you put it in your mouth? How does this affect your brain, your stomach, your small intestine, your liver... etc

As far as the eating plan... It is very well rounded nutrition wise.

Here is a link were you can find out more about it before you buy:

and here is the "99 second edition"

Hope this helps.
