I have been on this diet for about 6 weeks now. Just my thoughts on it so far.
Cutting out the potatoes, and grain products was hard work for the first week. After that it got steadily easier up until now, I never even feel like eating bread. I used to be capable of demolishing a loaf on my own in 2 days.
My appetite has diminished and I am no longer hungry as early in the day. This I feel is the key to this diet.
Preparing the meals as set out in the book, is really easy, and I am not really sure where the increased expense in food comes from that others talk about. The thought that I can eat as much of this food as I want, and its actually helping me lose more weight is amazing. So when I do prepare another delicious chicken stir fry, I feel great about preparing it, its tastes great, and I know it’s helping me lose weight.
Staying off the beer has been a wrench, but one bottle of real ale every now and again as a treat just about suffices.
Another key to this is the increased mineral water consumption – 2 litres a day. This has proven easy to do as the brew machine coffee at work is so poor, drinking mineral water is by far the easier of the 2 options. At home it’s still tea without sugar though, although I have dropped coffee for now.
My inbox tells me that I received this book on the 2nd September, and having just weighed myself today (18th October) I have lost 18.5 pounds. I must stress that this diet/weight loss program is simple, for me effective, and hardly any effort at all. Just another 35 pounds to go.

Easy to read and it all makes sense.
I believe around 2% maybe 3% of people in the UK were classed as obese around the 1960's/70's, eating full English breakfasts cooked in lard, not cereals or museli and meat and 2 veg for tea. I remember as a kid in the 70's seeing hardly any obese people and all my school friends were scrawny. Now I only have to walk through my town centre shops and the number of obese seem to out way the number of slim noticeably....I even see many using mobility scooters to get about. I can't believe these people actively eat to get to such a size that they can't walk or function fully as nature intended. My family ate lard cooked foods, dripping on toast, meat with virtually every meal with mountains of veg. Yet all my elderly relatives lived active lives well into their late 80's and even nearly to the ripe old age of 100 in one or two cases. Why is it that this current generation could die at a younger age than their parents? That's frightening. The common factor which seems to underpin this health time bomb.....sugar.
This book makes total sense. How many fat lions do you see in the wild!

This book is really amazing, I have tried lots of other diets with very limited success and felt the weight piled back on as soon as you came away from the diet, not so with this one!

It didn't even feel like a diet to me, I was eating like a king and the weight was free falling off me. Who doesn't like egg and bacon with a few sausages in the morning as part of their diet?!

I enjoyed how easy the book was to read along with the reasoning on how and why we put on weight etc.

With this diet I found once I had it down pat I could do it Monday-Friday and cheat on the weekends and still maintain my ideal weight.

If you want to eat like a king and not count a single calorie while "dieting" then this book is for you. Every person I have recommended this too has had just as much success as I have, really incredible book.

Nearing the big 40 (well a couple of years to go) and even though I went a month (Jan 2012) with no chocolates, crisps, etc, my nearly-middle-age belly/paunch wasn't showing any signs of getting smaller. I've never been on a diet, or even considered on. I'm 6'3 and weighed 14.5 stone. Not too dramatic, because being tall and usually dressed in a suit, my tummy was usually hidden), but when I had to buy a new suit in a bigger size for the first time in my life, I realised something had to be done.

Driving home one day from one, I tuned into Radio 2 and heard Zoe being interviewed; she claimed her diet allowed all the good things and no counting, colours or other complex things to remember. I bought this book and it has literally changed my life! I read it a couple of times to make sure I understood it; went shopping to stock up on certain things I knew I didn't have at home and started following the diet on the day after the two day Jubilee Holiday in June this year.

Now the first 5 days or Phase 1 is not easy - I drink a lot of coffee and for me the hardest thing was dealing with the headache I got for a couple of days, however, it soon passed. I weighed myself everyday and after around three weeks on the diet I noticed that I was loosing a pound a day. And this continued by following Zoe's rules for Phase 2. I managed this all through the summer, which included watching the Olympics, a holiday and a family wedding. I started to ease up when I reached 12 stone 5lb, in 14/16 weeks, which was my target and now I am happily following her rules and eating more healthily than ever before. I didn't do any exercise (but you can on the diet) and I think I look great!
