I'm the "proud" owner of Dr. Perricone's two previous books: "The Perricone Prescription" and "The Perricone Promise". As much as I liked both books, I was unpleasantly surprised by the amount of repetitions. What was published as the second book with a different title should have actually been named as the second edition of the first book. For that reason I was a little cautious when considering "The Perricone Weight-loss Diet".

This time, however, I did not feel cheated. I found that this book is a good manual teaching you how to take care of your weight and beauty without the danger of overdoing it, like it is in the case of many fad diets (Atkins, South Beach, etc). Like in all his books, Dr. Perricone focuses on anti-inflammatory and antioxidant foods that will not only keep your weight down but will also assure that you will improve your overall health in the process. Our ultimate goal is not to die thin! - We want to be lean and good looking, but we also want to stay healthy and live long and happy lives...

Following author's recommendation in his previous books my diet is already low on carbs and saturated fats. I do not drink coffee for several months now. I am committed to follow Dr. Perricone's fourteen-day meal plan introduced in this book and I am looking forward to see good results in the coming months...

On the negative side I am uncomfortable with Dr. Perricone's promoting several of his products, especially the supplements. First of all, they are much too pricey, and there are plenty of cheaper alternatives on the market. Secondly, I believe in natural, organic foods and natural remedies as recommended by some other authors, especially by Dr. Tombak in "Can We Live 150 Year?" - the best book I have ever read on health, self-help, and longevity.

After various forays into weight loss world, went back to this tried and trusted book. Excellent, because it tells you why things work, and is realistic. Not just a weight loss and anti-ageing tool, but following its ideas, even loosely, improve general health at my advanced age, 78 next Tuesday!! The book is very well arranged, flows from section to secton, and its index is excellent. A very good constantly referred to volume!

Full of medical jargon! Did not follow the diet but filtered out certain parts to fit my lifestyle. I do not have the resources or time to cook meals from scratch three times day! Would be fine if you are at home all day.

Easy to read but packed full of great advice to pick and choose from - which I have. Loaded up with omega 3 s and feeling very positive about the benefits already.

Great Motivation for eating in a positive way whilst improving your inner self and skin.

If you follow the diet even in a small way you will see improvement.
You do not feel hungry and are eating natural food!
Although the perricone supplements are expensive, you can find supplements of similar quality at a fraction pf the price.
The menus are not for me, but the principals are very positive and I have read and re-read this book countless times.

Teamed with Perricones website and his omega supplements as a base I found more energy and better skin.

The author presents some valid points about nutrition and the diet might bring expected results. However I have three major problems with the book:

1. I think this is practically fourth book by the same author, saying more or less the same.

2. It seems to be geared towards naive but affluent people who do not mind paying triple prices for supplements that are available in other places at much lower prices

3. I have problem subscribing to the concept of unnoticeable inflammation developing in your body; an inflammation that you cannot see or feel... If I cannot see or feel it, why would I believe someone that tells me that the inflammation is there and that I need to buy his supplements to fight it? I'm sorry but if I feel great I am not going to buy any pills to swallow "just in case" some new, unverified theory might be right. I rather stay with healthy foods (here Perricone is right) and live my life in agreement with nature as suggested by Tombak in "Can We Live 150 years"
