5.0 out of 5 stars Eat loads of delicious food and lose weight!, 29 April 2006

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Food Combining for Health Cookbook: Better health and weight loss with the Hay Diet (Paperback)
Food combining changed my life! After years of IBS and fluctuating weight it's all now under control - and I'm eating more than ever!

I admit I don't follow it to the letter but this book helps make it really easy, particularly with sceptical family members who don't like making an effort with the cooking.

It doesn't go into detail about the diet but gives you enough to start. Other books will give you the lowdown on why it works but this book helps you put it into practice.

I'll say three things about the recipes in this book:

1. They're straightforward and easy to follow - they don't use weird or hard to find ingredients or take hours of preparation.

2. The portions are huge - great when you're a busy, active and greedy person like me!

3.They're delicious - I've tried about 15 so far and every one has been a winner.

If you want to lose weight or just to feel healthier without too much fuss, you can't go far wrong with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant way of eating, 19 Jun 2003
This review is from: Food Combining for Health Cookbook: Better health and weight loss with the Hay Diet (Paperback)
Food combining is a brilliant and very very healthy way of eating and losing weight. The book is fantastic, recipies are simple and don't require too much time and almost all of them have been to even my husband's and by baby boy's satisfaction. The diet is based on as much fresh food as possible, and you can feel the benefits even after a few days. The book now comes on holiday with us (if self-catering). After a few months of using the recipies junk food tastes just awful and you wonder why you didn't start this earlier in your life. Even if you don't want to stick to the rules of the diet (which are quite strict e.g. no processed foods at all, no white flour or sugar etc.) the recipies are delicious. Great for entertainment and vegetarian food too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow literature and delicious recipies!!, 15 Oct 2001
This review is from: Food Combining for Health Cookbook: Better health and weight loss with the Hay Diet (Paperback)
Food combining is a totally different way of eating which requires quite alot of discipline at first. However, with the help of a good explanatory book, food combining becomes a doddle. Indeed this book to a large degree, serves that purpose. This book is a good buy because it encompasses a whole range of easy to follow recipies for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. In addition the recipies have the added bonus of tasting delicious!!! Go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A USEFUL COOKBOOK WHETHER FOLLOWING THE HAY DIET OR NOT......, 21 Aug 2007
This review is from: Food Combining for Health Cookbook: Better health and weight loss with the Hay Diet (Paperback)
...most notably, because `in the Hay Kitchen, vegetables are cooked as little as possible to preserve the essential vitamins and flavour`,... and all diets could possibly benefit from this.

'Jean Joice, co-author of the million-copy bestseller 'Food Combining for Health' and Jackie Le Tissier, author of 'Food Combining for Vegetarians', have created a definitive recipe collection and nutrition guide for food combiners.
And it's easy to follow!
Don't mix foods that fight!
Food combining can be summed up quite simply - starches and sugars should not be eaten with proteins and acid fruits at the same meal. This way of eating has a positive effect on your health and your weight.
Also known as the 'Hay Diet', the 'Food Combining' system has improved the health and vitality of millions around the world.
Symptoms which are commonly relieved or totally eradicated with the Hay Diet include:-

* Digestive Disorders
* Arthritic Pain
* Mood-swings and Irritability
* Allergic Reactions
* Difficulty Losing Weight
* Migraines and Headaches
* Skin Problems
* Tiredness & Fatigue

With over 200 recipes, divided into food-type sections and including easy-reference food charts, the 'Food Combining for Health Cookbook' makes Food Combining easy.'

246 informative pages, split over main chapters:-

The Hay System: What it is and how to put it into practice
Notes of foods and equipment for the Hay Kitchen
Notes on terms, quantities, oven temperatures and freezing
Table of compatible foods
Drink combination table

Recipes for Alkaline Meals
Food & Drinks

Recipes for Protein Meals
Food & Drinks

Recipes for Starch Meals
Food & Drinks

Seasonal Menu Planner

The added bonus with this book is that the index is sub-divided into sections:-

Combined Index
Alkaline Index
Protein Index
Starch Index

Plainly written in black text with no illustrations, this is a straight-to-the-point cookbook.

Each recipe is clearly laid out with opening applicable text, list of ingredients required and a clear method. Further notes include whether the finished dish can be frozen or suggests a variation on the theme.

A taste of the recipes contained within:-

* Melon Crush
* End of Winter Soup
* Orange and Herb Dressing

* Spicy Tahini & Tamari Dip

This review is from: Food Combining for Health Cookbook: Better health and weight loss with the Hay Diet (Paperback)
This book is so imaginative and includes recipes that people not on the hay diet would enjoy. I've enjoyed everything I've tried including Christmas dinner! Good food lists and recipes well -organised into main sections of alkaline, protein and starch.
