Format: Paperback
I have been and on and tried evry type of diet, both assisted nutritionists and non assisted self read books. All have had limited success. Hay is a way of life and not a diet, however the original works are too time consuming and not really motivating to get people going. It's not easy to abandon baguettes and Brie de Maux! I lost 8 kgs in the first 12 weeks, never hungry eat and drank as I wished, although today I cannot eat as much as I used to and I the thought of a protein and carbohydrate meal makes me feel heavy and bloated at the thought. This is something I would never have imagined possible before this book got me to re-adopt Hay. My rating is based on the concise practicality of the book.

Format: Paperback
The title lets you think that this is a book which makes the Hay system of food combining easy to understand and manage. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. I was completely baffled by the structure and content of this book.
The author also seems to enjoy millet, which appears everywhere! I spent a couple of hours looking though the receipes exclaiming "Yuck" and laughing at some of the combinations. I think the sandwich suggestions made me give up altogether: (a) Cream cheese, yeast extract & salad cress. (b) Yeast extract & egg yoke. (c) Lettuce & yeast extract.
What is it with yeast extract?
If you want to read a more sensible book on the Hay diet, I recommend "Food Combining for Health" by Doris Grant and Jean Joice. It won't scare you they way this one does and will even tempt you enough to stick with the method for a few weeks - which is all you need to see whether this method works for you!
The bottom line is: if you're interested in the Hay diet, stay away from this book as it will only put you off!

Being a keen follower of the food combining diet I have read a few books on this subject. "The Hay Diet Made Easy" really makes a difference as it points out other conditions that might not be detected or eliminated just because you are on the Hay diet, such as candida and food intolerances. The practical advice is excellent as it offers alternatives in replacement of foods that have to be eliminated from the diet if you suffer from food allergies. The book also mentions the adverse effects of changing one's diet too quickly and all this is done in a simple and easy to understand language. Essential for beginners.I thoroughly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
I understand that the principle is to separate proteins and starches,which in theory sounds quite easy, the added details of "acid, alkaline meals" made it very confusing to someone coming across the Hay Diet for the first time. I still do not understand why an alkaline meal can be both protein or starch, and if it weren't for the small food checklist and menu planner i would be flummoxed at the supermarket as to what to buy.

Format: Paperback
The book reviews here were very mixed and I didn't know what to expect. Now, that I have the book in my hand, I am not unhappy because it contains a lot of useful and practical information, but I am not absolutely thrilled either, because the manuscript would definitely benefit from a keen eye of a skilled editor.

Good book full of useful information and recipes. However I found the whole food combing thing difficult to follow and have since started the Margaret Hills diet for arthritis which I'm having great success with. However this book is still great and full of really useful information so I would recommend it to others and some friends of mine have had good results with it just not the right diet for me at this point in time, but I'm glad I brought it none the less. So would recommend to others if your looking for an all round healthy eating diet book that you can adapt around a family.
