I first bought this book in the 1970's and lost 3 stone! I feel it gives sound, sensible advice, eating more protein and less carbohydrate is self limiting, yet this is a lot less fearsome than the Atkins diet, etc.
3 more children and 40 yrs later I need to lose weight again and finding this book was like finding an old friend! Looking forward to a slimmer new year!

When I was young back in the late 60s I bought John Yudkin's book and it worked. I ate healthily, felt great and lost weight.
Now, after trying many many way of achieving the same result I decided to try this regime again. It's so simple, easy to fit into life and very sensible. I managed to find my original copy but all the pages fell out so I was so pleased to find this good condition copy. I recomend John Yudkin to anyone who wants to improve their health, feel great and lose weight in the process, to read this book

I bought this book because I had it in my teens and lost loads of weight using it - now the years and the children have caught up and other diets don't seem to really keep the weight off! I tried to find my copy but I couldn't so I ordered this one.
It came within 5 days and it's in excellent condition, much better condition than I think my copy would have been in!
I've been following the diet now for 10 days and the weight is coming off steadily. I'm very glad that I bought this book

My version has a most unattractive cover, not the one shown here, which was my original edition in the mid 60s. Was disappointed.
Otherwise content sensible and clear.
