I didn't believe those reviewers that complained that this book is potentially dangerous. That is until I read it. Look, it's not going to hurt a fat old bird like me. Stripped of its nonsense it's just the old advice to eat fewer carbs and take more exercise. I needn't have paid 4.99 to read that. But it's obviously aimed at teenage girls (it's title is a big clue, as is the language used inside . AND, it even refers to "your parents" in a few places). And it feeds into their insecurities and obsessive behaviours: "2 cups of black coffee, no sugar is slimming? How about 10 cups a day?" "One cold bath a day? How much could I lose with two cold baths a day?" "Blowing up balloons? Easy, I could do this for hours!" I speak as a mother, and as a counsellor of young women.
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.

Been following the plan outlined in this book and can say it definitely works, I have lost 10lb in 2 weeks and feel a lot healthier for it too. The book is clearly written for women which is a bit annoying but the plan equally applies to men as well. I have set out to lose 2 stone through both exercise and diet, this is a sensible plan which advocates 3 healthy low carbs meals per day I am certainly on my way to losing the 20 lb in 5 weeks as claimed in the book.

Update: I have lost 27 pounds in 7 weeks feel much healthier and have so much more energy

I am about 1/2 way through the book. I'll be honest, I couldn't put it down yesterday. I actually like the writing format, it reads more like an informative magazine article than a text book. I also really like the "highlights" at the end of each chapter. A nice little reminder & refresher. And I LOVE (yes, love!) the cold baths. I actually started this a while back after a gym injury left my lower back super sore. It is so good for your joints and muscles and fat too, I guess! Bonus! I can now lay back chest submerged for 15 minutes. I even add ice occasionally. Go me! I gave up bread and sugar years ago (other than the occasional TREATS!) so the "diet" wasn't too drastic for me. Opened my eyes a little with the fruit info though {{{sigh}}} I do love me some fruit but I am trying to really cut back for the next 6 weeks. The meal plan makes sense to me too. I am excited to see what the 1/2 half reveals.

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.

Firstly I would say that the reviews I've seen so far here and on iTunes look very fake to me. Having said that, if you are thinking about this book, I would say it is worth a read.
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.

The essence - 3 meals a day with lots of protein but also carb and veg and being careful of fruit is exactly what just about everyone advising on healthy eating says. When we moved from 3 meals a day to constant grazing on bad foods we became obese. Snacking often and never being hungry even if the snack is fruit shoots your blood sugar levels up and down and any diet for diabetest or depression will advise against lots of snacks. So the basics sound very sound. I don't take any caffeine and I am sure that is not needed - look at the wiki pictures of spider webs after having coffee but the fundamentals here are not unsound.

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.
