I'll tell you what it basically says, then you needn't waste your money:
Have two cups of black coffee, no sugar, at breakfast time
Have a cold bath
Do 45 minutes of exercise
Mid-morning have your breakfast.
Cut down your carbs
Do more exercise, including weight-lifting (even women - good advice) and walking, and "blowing up balloons" - pretending, see!?
Have 2-4 cups green tea a day
For detailed advice on exercise and a low carb diet you will need to surf the internet. Which doesn't take very long.
Update: I have lost 27 pounds in 7 weeks feel much healthier and have so much more energy
And to everyone who says it's too strict or too extreme? I disagree. What's too extreme is the waistlines of America. the size of our portions, and pantries, fridges and freezers full of ice-cream. We are so over the top with food that we can't imagine (and don't WANT to even imagine) a life of simple, whole, nutritious food.
Personally I find the writing style almost unbearable, but that's probably just me, there is some sense there, it's just that the tone appears to be aimed at those of very low intelligence.
It's basically a low-carb / high protein diet, not dissimilar to, but less fussy than Dukan. This is a good thing. Low carb diets are absolutley right. We are not designed to eat the huge amout of refined carbs in the modern diet.
I expect the author is planning to court controversy (and thereby increase sales, just wait until the Daily Mail is outraged and watch the £££s roll in!) by advocating skipping breakfast. The received wisdom is that eating breakfast kick-starts the metabolism, and without it you will feel sluggish and more inclined to binge later in the day. However he is suggesting other methods of raising metabolism in the morning such as gentle excercise (good) or cold baths (the logic sounds plausible but I'm sure a bit of excercise is better) The idea is to extend the body's overnight fasting to increase fat burn. To be fair he still suggests three meals a day, so I guess you can have your breakfast after a cold bath and some exvercise (or period of movement) as he patronisingly puts it, so as not to scare us.
Have a read and make up your own mind, but everyone strugging with their weight MUST learn about carbs, the effect of insulin, the relative unimportance of avoiding fat and the importance of excercise (movement - sorry if I scared you). This book does cover these basics which can't be a bad thing, he also has a go at medical orthodoxy too which is no bad thing.
It is the hype which has got it in the press which may not matter. 50% of British women of childbearing age are over weight in the UK. It was never like this. We are the first generation where we will live worse and shorter lives than our parents ever because of how badly we feed ourselves.
Food for health is the next big thing - read Sugar Nation, Terry Wahl's materials and Dr Kathleen De Maisons - very varied writers and different aims (diabetes, MS, depression) but all coming to much the same conclusion - we are what we eat. In some ways fat is the least of the problems. Mental health and illnesses coming from a bad diet whether you are fat or thin are the much bigger issue.
