A friend of mine, who is also in my age group, recommended this book. I'd never heard of it before, but went out to Amazon to read the premise and the reviews. The reviews seemed like they were all written by people like me. I read on and saw that she provided options for tailoring The Plan to vegans and vegetarians, so I decided "what the hell" and bought the book. I spent the first week reading the book and looking through the recipes. There's a fair amount of prep work that needs to be done to get your food ready for the first week. That said, the recipes are all super simple to make. They're not gourmet, but they're palatable. I read the book's Plan for the first week and then pulled down the vegetarian and vegan menus off her website and kind of put together a hybrid plan for the week.
I've been on The Plan for a week now and have lost.........wait for it..........9 pounds!!! How is that even possible? I don't know and I'm not asking - who cares? And even though I'm only one week into this and still have a fair number of days left to go, I don't even really care what happens from here on out because I'm down 9 pounds! The Plan makes perfect sense to me and is the first time I've ever come across a diet plan that is tailored to your body. I did another "medically supervised" diet plan where you were eating 1,200 calories a day and were supposed to take off 2-3 pounds a week. When I struggled to take off 1/2 a pound a week, I asked them why and they couldn't answer me. If it's a simple calories in/calories out equation, then anyone who was dedicated could lose weight. For some of us, our bodies attack the food we put in it and that has to be remedied. Her premise is such an interesting concept and explains so much about those folks who we all know who seem to eat whatever they want and stay as skinny as a rail. Most of us chalk it up to a faster metabolism, but how could someone's metabolism be really that much faster than another person's? The way I interpret The Plan is that it's a personalized eating plan that tailors foods to your body chemistry so that we all can eat "whatever we want" and stay slim and fit. We all have the same metabolism, but those people who stay slim eating everything have a much more efficient metabolism because there aren't any foods that hang up in their system. For the rest of us, it's a scientific puzzle to figure out what works for us and what doesn't. I also think she's really on to something with the whole aging process and our systems becoming sensitized to certain foods that once gave us no trouble when we were younger.
I am a huge believer in this book and plan. I have turned three other people on to it and they're now doing it as well. Given that it's the only thing that has worked for me, if you're in the same boat and find you can't budge the scale no matter what you do, it's at least worth a try. I feel great, my arthritis has lessened, and I'm eating avocados for the first time in a couple of decades! Give it a try.
One of the worst written non fiction books I have ever owned. I really don't care if one of the authors clients liked a sauce so well that she would eat it over kitty litter. I don't care to read 100s of testaments to how good the recipes are (they are pretty good). I just want to get on with the book. Prove the recipes are not good. Don't spend all those pages trying to convince me. It even backfired. I was sure they were going to be terrible are reading all the testaments.
Get ready to cook. A lot. Get ready to do a lot of dishes.
Have to plan ahead. Have to make lunches the night before often. The flax seed breakfast takes some work and time. Can't just whip it up. If you run out without having already prepared more you will find yourself without a breakfast.
Terribly organized. It is not sequential. You will read something and then find out later you were not suppose to do it when you did unless you read the entire book, and remembered it, first. Does not explain a lot of things until after you are asked to do it. Without the understanding we ended up doing it wrong.
It asks readers to do a few things that are simply not proven. For example the author recommends liver detox pills. All the empirical studies done on these rather expensive pills show they do no more than a placebo.
Do not buy on Kindle. Nightmare jumping from place to place and you will need to do it if you use this book. We ended up buying both Kindle and paperback.
It works. I have lost 15 lbs in 17 days. I had been eating extremely healthy for nearly a year (most would say I had been eating extremely healthy for the 25 years I have been married to a physician). I had lost a few pounds but even with a lot of exercise (I got really fit). I lost little weight. There is no issue with eating as much as I want.
In short I recommend the diet but not the book.
Thank you Lyn
