While a bit dull at some points, very educational as an addon to the Lindora diet program I have been following the last 7 weeks. True to the book I lost 20 lbs in 4 weeks, and as of this writing I am down 27 pounds at the end of week 7 with 17 more to go on my 10 week plan.

The book shows you how to "reset" your gut (yes that's right) so that it produces "good bacteria" (weight loss promoting) vs "bad bacteria" (wait gaining) in an effort to shrink your fat cells and get your body to utilize pr

Though this diet isn't for me, this book is carefully laid out and explains the diet well. There is a good mix of the science and the "how to" aspect of the diet as well. There are also useful charts and menus. However, this diet may not be for everyone. Since the diet uses dietary ketosis to help aid in the weight loss, I would check with your doctor or nutritionist before starting this or any other program.

I'm not sure how to review this, it seems to be a really good plan for weight loss, but having not tried it yet don't know if it really works. I will update a review at GoodReads/Amazon once I try this out... or if I try much as I want to loose a few pounds...I am very bad at following any type of program.

Sound principles in dieting: no weird restrictions,'s nothing new under the sun. Be careful with portions, fats, sugar, carbs, etc. which then begs the question, "Why buy this book or even read it?"

seems like a pretty basic diet plan. easy to follow and not too preachy. I liked the tone of the book.
