I bought this book back in September of 2007, so a bit over 4 months ago. Like any “diet book”, I didn’t follow it literally. There’s no way I’m measuring everything I eat. But I did follow the general concepts, and one particular big idea. I focused myself on eating more of what’s good for you. More vegetables, more blueberries and other fruits. I also focused on eating less of things that are nutrient-poor. Less bread, less pasta, etc. I still eat stuff that’s “bad” for you (the common notion of bad – cheese, salami, etc.), though much less than before. Anyway, I lost 5-10 pounds fast. In that first couple of weeks I went hungry at times. It felt too fast, and at times I felt light-headed. So I checked in with my doctor (I was fine) and ate a little more. My weight steadied. I had my cholesterol checked after a couple of months and it was a big improvement. Now I generally eat better and it’s more of a habit than an effort. I’m still losing gradually and have lost 15-20 pounds so far. I’ve read many “diet books” in the past. South Beach wasn’t bad, but this is significantly better. By that I mean it worked better for me. You don’t have to follow the book to the letter to make it work, and to the authors’ credit, they say so and offer advice on that.
