Many of the diets on the market at the moment are aimed primarily at meat eaters. You have to adapt the diet to suit a vegetarian's needs. This book takes all the hassle out of weight loss. All the plans are aimed at vegetarians and all the recipes are veggie (some are even vegan). You can also chose which sort of diet you want to follow - low fat, calorie counting or food combining. With the extra sections on the psychological issues surrounding weight loss and even a section on yoga (!) this book has LOADS of useful information. I thoroughly recommend it - especially at the price. More books for dieting veggies please!

1.0 out of 5 stars Follow with Caution 20 Aug 2003
Although most of the recipies in this book are fine in themselves, in my opinion Rose Eliot's 'theories' on weight loss are not based on very sound nutritional research. The amount of calories she recommends for each day is too low for just about any normal person, and I found myself feeling tired and drained while following the diet strictly. Also, the 'quick loss' diets she recommends, such as eating just pineapple for a whole day may work in the short term, but most of the weight lost will be water. I found some of the calorie counted recipes useful while on a healthy diet and exercise plan, but as for the rest of it, I think it's nonsense and frankly dangerous.

2.0 out of 5 stars Approach with caution 3 Sep 2003
Having followed her principles, I can safely say that it did work, however, the amount of calories she recommends is DANGEROUSLY low, and I actually increased it when I was following it. She also fails to mention the fact that such a low calorie consumption WILL inevitably lead to the body going into starvation mode, leading to actually gain more weight once the diet is over. I'm surprised she even suggests the 'rice and strawberry' crash diet of 600 calories a day - absolutely laughable.
However, her 'psychological' chapters and self esteem talks, plus recipe ideas make it useful for those of us who cannot go on Atkins for obvious reasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars A guide to meat free weight loss 2 Feb 2000
By Karen
this book gives two methods of weight loss - food combining and calorie counting. You choose the method best suited to yourself. There are loads of easy to follow recipies and tips on nutrition along with excercises. There is also a section on weight maintenance once your diet has finished. It is useful to find a diet book where you can use all the recipies!
