Practical, sensible and a doddle to read
on 23 January 2005
Men's Health ran an article on this 'diet' a month-or-so ago and I began to adopt some of the principles of this book then; I felt better within a few days. Put simply, you can read this book cover-to-cover in a few hours and start making changes to your approach to food straight away - it's virtually hassle free.
The main principles in the book are focused on eating combinations of the twelve 'powerfoods' that are explained in detail, and eating regularly, six times a day. It's easy to scoff at that latter concept if you're a busy person (like me!), but I've managed to fit the snacks in and I think that this element of the programme is key. It's amazing how much better I feel without going for long periods of time minus food.
The book also provides clear information on the foods that are bad for us, and why some other diets aren't too good for us, as well. At no point is there any confusing science; it's all understandable. Menus, hassle-free recipes and a basic work-out programme are also included and these support the main ideology of the book well. Everything here is, again, easy to understand and, above all, attainable.
Nothing here is rocket science, which is a good thing, but for anyone looking for a straightforward way to making a positive change to their lifestyle, this is a good place to begin.
