This does have all the hallmarks of a fad diet. WebMD calls it "an extremely rigid approach to reverse disease and cause weight loss."

I'm rating this just 3 stars for now...that rating may change depending on how effective this is. I know it will be, because this is something that I will be sticking to.

The authors recommend a diet heavy in rice and other cereals. Regardless of weight and metabolism, they start off at 1000 calories or less per day. They do advise exercise in conjunction with the diet and include spiritual recommendations. They do not address consequences of rapid weight loss. A collection of recipes is included.
I've lost 16 pounds and I'm enjoying my food better.
