Finally, a diet that will be a lifestyle!

I am 46 years old and have been fighting my weight for 40 years. I've tried EVERY diet that has come along during this time period and sure I'd lose a little weight, but would grow tired of the whacky diets/foods that you would have to eat and drop off to go back to my...
I am 46 years old and have been fighting my weight for 40 years. I've tried EVERY diet that has come along during this time period and sure I'd lose a little weight, but would grow tired of the whacky diets/foods that you would have to eat and drop off to go back to my high sugar and carb foods. And I've also done the starvation thing. That worked great...except my hair fell out and nails became soft as butter. When I got this book, I was a little skeptical, but I read it and I started on it one week ago today. And I'm here to tell you that this works (and this from the diet queen of all times!). I'm not hungry, I have totally lost my carb cravings and one week into it I'm 10 pounds lighter! What more could you ask?? And what's even better is the fact that I feel much better. I don't have the highs and lows of too much sugar/carbs. And I know that I'm nurishing my body while the pounds are coming off. Sure there's a little preparation time for the foods, but when you think about it, isn't your health worth a little effort?? Thanks Dr. Mercola!! This is the first time that I have ever felt that this is doable!

Excellent Diet but The Book...

The No-Grain Diet itself is excellent. I'm on it and have successfully lost weight and improved my health. The book, however, is not very entertaining, and I was even more disappointed that so much of it was devoted to recipes. Good information poorly presented.

    Load of B.S.

    Complex Polysaccharides (Carbohydrates) are *not* the enemy. They provide ATP's, our body's source of energy. Protein cannot be burned -- the excess protein gained in diets like these and others are harmful and lead to liver and kidney problems. Wanna lose weight fast? Don't really care about the negative health reprecussions? Cut off a limb. You won't even have to wait 6 weeks.

    Too complicated,unorganized and needs a study guide.

    A wonderful take off of Atkins; great timing. Very impractical for working stiffs, who must eat out, very limited cuisine for most citizens in my neck of the woods. Should be a way to utilize The Fast Food offerings, grocery stores and menus for average joes in this pitiful economy. Bottom line...what is the author,really telling us...protein, carbos(complex), what percent and how much. Get real......
