I come from a family with a high risk of practically every chronic/potentially deadly disease known to man. Diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart name it. Watching my parents deal with these illnesses has really made me want to take my own health another direction. I picked up this book because I want to lose some weight and I have a friend who uses it successfully. But the things I learned about the way our bodies react to sugars, etc is invaluable to me. Dr Agatston designed this diet to address heart health, not weight. Heart health is something I am worried about.

Some reviewers of this book have complained that it doesn't deal with exercise, but how many exercise books are there on the market that don't address diet? I have several on my bookcase. As far as eating "a whole farm full of animals", I say "Oh, please!" Have you never heard of beans?
