I just finished reading this book, and I read it from cover to cover. I have to disagree with the other folks who reviewed it. (And I want to mention that a couple of those reviewers admittedly have not read the book!) Having struggled with weight loss for most of my life (gained weight at 10 and at 43 am still struggling), I have turned to countless weight loss books and methods. This book IS different! I'm intrigued and interested in the methods he recommends. Are they unusual... yes. Does that mean they are ineffective? Well, I don't know because I have not had time to implement them. But, as strange and controversial as they may seem, the logic behind them does make sense to me. And obviously, some of the "traditional" methods are not working. I cannot tell you how many times I've tried a new eating/exercise program, followed it faithfully for several weeks and then been disappointed and frustrated by a lack of positive results. And, as the obesity epidemic in our country continues to escalate, perhaps it is time to explore something different. Am I advocating this plan for everyone? No- but I think that before one bashes this guy and his ideas perhaps he or she should try them. And for the people who seem to think that his ideas are dangerous or anorexic-inducing I don't see it. It seems that the whole skipping breakfast idea is throwing some people into a tizzy- but think about it- how many diet plans recommend not eating after 6:00 or 7:00 pm? Isn't that kind of the same thing (an extended time period of fasting), just in reverse order? I personally find myself not really hungry in the morning and force myself to eat because of traditional weight loss advice. He never advocates restricted eating- in fact there's no calorie counting at all. He only recommends restricting carbs... not such an insane concept. So, I'm going to try it. If I remember, I'll update my review in 6 weeks. I only gave it 4 stars because the writing style was a little off-putting (I think he was trying to be light hearted, but I found it at times a little annoying), and there were some sections that seemed to jump from idea to idea without much connection, leaving me a little confused. It did however keep me interested unlike the countless other diet books I've read that spend chapter after chapter rehashing the old information that I've read a million times!

What a joke!!! Laughable

Really? Where did this man get his education? This tops the list of useless wastes of time and money. What a joke! This is why we have young adults with eating disorders and mental issues. Run the other way!!!!!!!!
