A must have book
on 31 May 2016
This is only the second diet book that has revolutionized my approach to food, the first one was the Atkins diet for which I have fond memories ( like going to a Walmart during my lunch break and buying and eating a whole roast chicken!) I find that the approach Doctor Berg has taken to dieting is extremely helpful, aligns with much that is said about understanding the impact of insulin on the body. With the starting point of understanding what your body tells you about your body he explains why each body type has an underlying cause for how and where we put on fat. I went through the Liver Enhancement stage and did find it difficult as I craved some meat or fish - i did end up having one or two rollmops a day, not much but it certainly filled a gap.I will not say how much I have lost on the diet as sometimes people compare themselves ( I know I did). For me the fact that applying the teachings in this book like using acid cider vinegar, kale (i always add spinach too) smoothies makes the whole process easier. However, I do not see this as a diet book per se, for me it is a guide to eating for life book even though for most people it means losing some weight. I fully endorse this book and most importantly, what it teaches works.
I will end with a quote from Dr Berg, it is not obesity that makes you unhealthy, it is because you are unhealthy that makes you obese. Excellent.
