I had originally bought this book years ago for my daughter as a joke because she was always complaining about her belly. A year after having the book she decided that the whole family should go on the daily eating plan that it recommends. To my surprise it actually works and my daughter, husband and I not only lost a considerable amount of weight but our tummys also flattened. This “pocket guide” is so handy to bring to the market becausee of its size and grocery lists for the week. It works, it’s healthy and you’ll look fabulous!!!!!!!! She has her copy and now I have mine!!!!!!
I actually bought the full sized book, this pocket guide and the journal. I could have skipped the full sized book, and gone with just the pocket guide. The four day anti bloat diet was hard on day three, but I lost 5 pounds and it was do-able. The 28 day plan is in the pocket guide, and at the end of the 1st week I was down a total of 8 pounds. The best part is, there is nothing difficult about this diet. You can swap the meals around in the same day to accommodate your work schedule. You can substitute breakfasts for breakfasts, lunch for lunch, and so on. I wasn’t fond of some of the meals, so I put in one that I liked. I also found the journal to be useful. It was easy to keep track of what I ate when I ate it. Usually I depend on my memory, and miss things. The standard book had success stories and recipes that I wasn’t really interested in. I wanted a plan that told me what to eat..when…and was easy to do. The Pocket Guide does that. I did not find it expensive to buy the items on the plan, as there were substitutes which more affordable. Since I already used many of the items, I didn’t need to buy olive oil, walnuts or pine nuts, for example. I did not buy organic deli meat, I went with low sodium, roasted products. So far, so good. I’m on week 2 of the 28 day plan and I’m gradually losing weight and feeling satisfied. It’s making me re-evaluate my relationship with food. I can eat healthy, lose weight, and enjoy what I’m eating. Hopefully, when I’m done with the 28 days, I can be wiser about my choices, and keep going. Time will tell. Anyway, I’d highly recommend this. Too many diets are difficult to do, and this is not. If you’re looking for a basic plan with good food, this works.
I have lost 30 pounds and am still going!
