I'm a 53 year old man who lost 100 lbs of excess flab after being very overweight since being a child. To my knowledge I'm currently fit and healthy and I'm interested in taking my wellbeing to the next level. Wayne W Dyer highly recommends this diet and I thought I'd explore it.

The book makes sense and explains superbly the diets and exercises needed for the various Apo E genotypes. It's also packed with great information and insights. ... BRILLIANT!!! That's what makes this is a 5 star book.

To follow the recommendations you need to know your Apo E genotype, fair enough. To have the Apo E Gene and advanced cholesterol testing, which you need to do so you can follow the diet, will cost you a minimum of $695 (at the time of writing this review). You don't believe me? Take a look at the testing options on her web site which is the same name as the book. Granted you get other things in the package that are most helpful. I just felt very disappointed the tests cost so much, it would have been good to have an affordable option just for the testing alone.

In my opinion, if you're buying the book so you can follow the diet there's not much point in reading it unless you know which type you are. If you know your Apo E genotype then this is a brilliant book. If you're a health professional researching diets I guess this would be a good read too.

If you are health conscious it is a great read and will help you make an informed decision if you'd like to go down this route or not.

anyone who cares about their health and is willing to make the changes should definitely read this book. this book is revolutionary and I hope its teachings are someday soon understood and taught by all primary health care providers, its should be read be all (esp to find out more about cholesterol and how a healthy cholesterol level on a regular blood test does not rule out heart disease) but most importantly those at risk of chronic illness - Heart disease, Diabetes, Alzheimers etc. I can not stress how good this book is. not a complex book either, well written and easy to understand

Format: Paperback
Going on a diet for a time, living a bit of a miserable life until you hopefully achieve some weight loss is not sufficient for the long term. It needs a lifestyle change, or at least lifestyle modification.

One problem is that there are many books all promising the true and only way to weight loss - or that is how it often feels - and yet there is no real true "one size fits all" diet. Cutting the amount you put in your mouth, changing the quality and type of food and undertaking a bit of exercise are very broad-brush ways to help work towards this goal.

Yet time after time the weight still comes back...

This book is not a classic diet book or inspirational weight loss tome. It set out to look at something called the Apo E (Apolipoprotein E) gene and how it can affect your weight. Research has found that this gene is some form of controlling or regulatory "valve" that has affects your cholesterol level and other health factors that can affect or be affected by your weight.

This is not a light read. It is a comprehensive book for sure but it is written also for the average reader as well as the healthcare professional or researcher. As well as looking at this gene, a lot of the information presented is also good common sense when it comes to dietary habits and overall weight loss plans. Even if you don't understand the science, or if you disagree with it, you may still find a lot of general information that can help you along your way to weight loss nirvana.

To be clear, this review cannot recommend a specific course of action to help you be healthier and more svelte and you should consider seeking professional advice from a doctor or nutritionist who can personally assess your situation if you are at all uncertain about what to do.

Having just found out I had the dreaded apo E 3/4 gene I eagerly bought this book to help me manage the lifestyle but overall am disappointed with the book. I give my positives and constructive criticisms:

Positives:
- has a stab at dealing with a very important topic. Nothing much else out there on the subject.
- great that it is written by a fellow E3/4 carrier rather than a smug 2/2
- she really wants to help people and I am sure she is a good and caring doctor
- comments on whole foods and micronutrients are all very sensible
- I like the way she takes a broad view of health markers and life factors rather than managing particular test numbers (as most doctors do)

Constructive criticisms:
- for all the promise, the resultant diets are all very similar for the different apoEs with tiny % shifts in macronutrients. Basically low fat whole-food whilst staying on moderate side of the low fat jihardists.
- her analysis of the fats is a bit superficial, casually dismissing the saturated fats as inflamitory. Loads of research would argue differently.
- apoE 4 is known as the "Alzheimer's gene". Yet the only lens she looks at health through is lipids - cholesterol quantity and quality. Yet our brains are the ultimate fatty organs which need copious fat to function optimally. Restricting fat just does not seem credible when Alzheimer's is increasingly called "diabetes type 3" - surely we need to control insulin resistance by curbing carbs/sugars.
- the book is devoid of science justifying her assertions. No technical chapters or reviews of scientific studies. Instead there are endless chapters of fluffy padding - how to do basic exercises, meal plans, progress check lists, case studies.
