This book is every bit as good as the Food Doctor Diet, which I purchased last year. It's filled with wonderful recipes using tasty fresh ingredients. No more peel, pierce and ping! for me! I never realised how quick and easy it is to prepare delicious dishes using fresh ingredients.
The book explains nutrition for the layman, and when I understood how my body used the food I ate, I automatically begin to make better food choices. I am no longer mislead / confused by food labelling!
Since I began following the principles I have lost over 3 stones without really trying. If you follow the principles you can't fail to lose weight.
The other benefits are that I sleep better, wake better! I have loads more energy my hair is shines and my skin glows. My husband says I'm a lot less moody too!
Until I discovered the Food Doctors 10 principles I had yo-yo dieted for a number of years going from weight watchers to slimming world and although I lost weight it wasn't sustainable. Now I don't ever count calories and the weight still comes off.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I saw the A-List diet on TV and thought I'd give this a try.
I was aware of complex versus protein concept from Patrick Holford but this book made it some much easier, as you use your hands for portion sizes.
I have lost nearly a stone in 4 weeks following the plan. Note I call it a plan rather than a diet. Where can you eat sun-dried tomatoes, goats cheese e.t.c on any other fatloss diet!
The ten principles are easy to understand and contrary to an earlier review, it doesn't have to cost a fortune to eat well on the plan. I was spending more on Slimming World as I was filling my face with Muller Light Yoghurts and salad, with very little weightloss!
I have another 3 stone to loose but hope the plan still works.
A Must Buy Book!

I have never been what you might term fat or overweight, and all I have ever wanted to do was lose half a stone. The problem was that I have lost that half stone many times only to find it returning when I came off my diets.....and so it went on. I tried Ian's first diet book in January 2004 and I lost the half stone ( and a little more ) over a few weeks and, here we are in February 2005, and it has never come back and I am not on a diet at all. The publicity is true - it really doesnt feel like the old fashioned 'diet' that I used to punish myself with.Its just a simple way of eating that I use every day, so much so that I dont even realise I do it.
I bought The Everyday Diet as soon as it was out and it has new information that is presented and communicated with aplomb and humour. The writing is eay to follow so you know what to do, and also why you are doing it, which makes things much, much easier. These two books have helped me understand weight, metabolism and food like never before.

This is not just a weight loss diet book it is for everyone, and forms the way you eat for life. Reading this book you benefit from the author's successful experience as a nutritionist with clients, answering frequent diet queries from nutrition to tips when eating out.
For me the most invaluable part of the book and in my opionion one of the author's finest attributes as a writer, is the way he has explained the affects of the 'GI factor' and the 'role of insulin' in a clear and easy to understand way. By following the '10 Principles' I have no difficulty in maintaining my ideal weight. There's no calorie counting, the plan concentrates on maximum nutrition to bring stability to your metabolism in order to achieve natural weight loss.
The 80/20 rule is realistic advice so I still enjoy favourite treats - just part of a balanced diet, and I don't have any sugar cravings! As it is explained in the book my blood sugar levels which are vitalily important to me are more stable than ever before.
Eating is now a pleasure, trying out the many imaginative but simple and delicious snack and meal recipes. The author appreciates the need for easy to follow recipes that don't require hours of preparation to create a tasty correctly proportioned very enjoyable meal.
The book is full of practical advice, it's well presented and easy to pick up and refer to.

Format: Paperback
I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to diets and cookbooks but the Food Doctor series are absolutely exceptional. Forget the dieting side for a moment; the recipes are very good, tasty and most are very easy to prepare. There are a number of 'store cupboard' recipes that use the most basic ingredients but turn out to be delicious. On the dieting side, the meals are all low GI and combined with a reasonable level of physical exercise will help you shed those wobbly pounds. So you can eat nice nosh and do yourself some good. The clever bit is that if you are cooking for a family they needn't even know you are on a diet as the food will be good for them too. Highly recommended.

I was inspired by the "A-List Diet" programme on TV and decided to give Ian Marber's healthy eating plan a go. I only had a stone to lose, so didn't bother with the 7-day detox diet and went straight to his everyday plan with 10 principles. All the nutritional background is explained very clearly in this book and it makes perfect sense to me. I've been following this healthy eating plan for about 3 weeks now and have lost 2 kg (4 ½ pounds), which is great as I didn't even stick to his principles to the letter. I never felt as if I was on a diet and never was hungry. Most of the recipes look nice (while a few don't appeal to me) and so far I've only tried one which was quite good. I'm usually putting together my own meals with the right proportions (more or less) of protein, carbohydrates and fat, which is fairly easy once you're clued up on it with the help of this book. I really believe that I could continue this nutritional concept for life and will stay slim forever! But then again, only time will tell...
