This does have all the hallmarks of a fad diet. WebMD calls it "an extremely rigid approach to reverse disease and cause weight loss." The site warns ominously that the "diet is not recommended for anyone who has had a colon resection or impaired kidney function" and observes that even the "authors... note the diet is too low in calcium and vitamin D and suggest a once-daily multivitamin."

This book has already helped me put myself in a state of mind that things need to change, my diet, eating habits, change in activity, a change in my life. The first step is to get into that ...more

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.
