I bought this book following the feature in The Saturday Times last month. If you follow this diet as strictly as you can I think weight loss is pretty much guaranteed. I haven't lost 20lbs admittedly but I wasn't hugely overweight to start with. I'm 5'3 and start weight was 9 and a half stone. End weight after 4 weeks is just below 9 stone. And I barely did the exercise element of the diet due to a very busy schedule. So I'm very pleased with the result. I'm not quite at my wedding dress goal weight (8 and a half stone) but I have to admit I can't face doing another couple of weeks of the diet at this stage - I may come back to it in the few weeks before the wedding. Here are my pros and cons.....

PROS

1) You do get to eat a lot of food, I like to snack so this diet worked well for me in that respect. I didn't get any of the guilt I usually do if I have an extra piece of fruit or a whole sweet potato etc.

2) I have lost weight - particularly on my stomach and around my face and a little off my bum and thighs

3) I feel much healthier generally. I feel less lethargic since giving up caffeine. My skin is very soft and completely clear - best it's been in years (think this may be due to the diet combined with a dermalogica face cleansing regime!)

4) As someone who hates cooking I have realised that it is achievable to cook for myself more often - as Haylie says in the book, if you know what is going into your food it's going to be much better for you.

CONS

1) I love food. All food. And giving up bread, pasta (couldn't find any spelt or rice pasta anywhere), cheese, milk, tea, coffee, sugary treats, potatoes, fruit juice etc has been extremely difficult.

I wrote the review below back in May. After four weeks I had lost 9LBS (in spite of 1or 2 weekly cheats).The thing I am most delighted about is that since then I have not regained that weight. For 8 of those weeks I was between jobs therefore eating out regulary and having treats. This has been amazing. I eat sensibly most of the time but have still have wine, coffee, cheese, chocolate. Bacon sarnies etc and am still 9 lbs down.

I am about to embark on anorher 4 weeks to lose my last 7lbs. Will add an update in a month or so but am very happy I found this book. One thing I have noticed is that when I do eat 'rubbish' now I really dont enjoy it so my relationship with food has seriously changed.

**********

28 May

Day 3 of week 3 and I've lost 6 lbs. I was hoping for double this but I suppose I only had max 1 stone to lose so a quick fix wasn't going to happen. I've had a few blips - occasional decaf tea and coffee with skimmed milk when REALLY struggling.

To be honest I'm disappointed that I don't feel better in myself after reading the other reviews. Yes I've lost my bloat and my waist is more defined but I'm exhausted and quite faint most of the time and tend to fall asleep after my evening meal - crash!

I make my own spelt bread - which is lovely - and such a pleasure with almond butter on day 5. I made Haylie's Chilli over the weekend and it is gorgeous. I would make that whether on a diet or not. I get through days 3 and 4 by making stew/soup as something warm is more satisfying than meat and salad.

I find days 1 and 2 hard until lunchtime then I'm fine. I suffer from low blood sugar so the lack of protein with breakfast makes me hungry and irritable.

I've completed my first week, and I've lost 5ilbs I didnt ever feel as if I was dieting.
You need to read the whole book, and make sure you have written down, and prepared for each section, It's incredibly easy, and you can easily incorporate it into resturants.

Being a mum of a very active toddler I was attracted to this diet as it's focus is not weight loss by calorie controlled dieting... after all I really need to keep my energy levels high and I can't do that on a very low caloric intake. Some people say that her portions are small or that she is giving you very little calories but that just isn't true. Firstly you can eat as much veg (within the permitted list) as you want - that might not appeal to some people but if you get fresh organic produce that actually tastes of something (not the big supermarket stuff!) then it's really enjoyable and filling to load up on veg. Secondly I actually found her portion sizes for some things too big (especially on the first few days) but then I'm not a total carb addict to begin with. Lastly if you follow the diet you are eating something every three hours .... how can anyone be hungry if they are doing that unless they are 'cheating' and eating the wrong types of foods that trigger a high/crash? It's really important to be organised though so you have the right foods on hand when needed (especially the snacks in between which are key to making you feel full all the time I've found).

The actual diet is very prescriptive in what you can and can't eat so it helps to read the book a few weeks before beginning which gives you time to get organised maybe making and freezing some of her suggested recipes in advance and getting a few shopping lists organised. I lined up a few online grocery orders in advance so I knew I'd have things in when I needed them. The more distraction and demands on your time the more organised you'll have to be! Her jerky turkey recipe is truly very tasty, so much so my husband eats my stash just as a snack (he wasn't doing the diet).
