finally something that works!,
This review is from: The Harcombe Diet - Stop Counting Calories and Start Losing Weight: Recipe Book (Paperback)
This is the first time i've ever reviewed a book but the diet is so good i had to.
I've got both the diet book and the recipe book and have now been doing the diet for 10 weeks. I started at 13 stone 4 (i'm 5ft 7) and have now lost a stone and a half.
Like loads of other reviewers i've tried all sorts of other diets and mostly ended up losing a little and then putting a load back on when my will power ran out.
Phase 1 is hard, but i gave up alcohol and caffeine for a couple of weeks before i started and that seemed to really help with the headache issue - i've had really bad headaches doing previous 'detox' diets but didn't have that problem with phase 1.
During phase 2 (which i'm still on) i've managed to go out for dinner several times without putting a load back on. I did learn the hard way though that you can't drink rose wine with a fat meal- i didn't realise it was so sugary!
I feel so much better and my eating habits have totally changed - something i was sure wouldn't happen. I was hugely skeptical when i started the diet particularly about the idea that you could lose weight without doing any exercise. Anyway i don't do any regular exercise at the moment (something i now feel i have the energy to change) and have still managed to lose weight. i still can't quite believe it!

I was just wondering, that since i'm a vegetarian, does the book provide any alternative recipes for meats? I do eat fish and even chicken, but not meat. Hope you can help!!

Yes, the recipe book has got plenty of vegetarian meals or vegetarian options (tofu and Quorn are completely fine) and there are lots of things with chicken and fish. You can make up recipes as well as the basic rules are very few and very simple. I've been on it for a few weeks now, losing weight and feeling great!

You are no sort of vegetarian at all if you eat fish and chicken.
