 This book is a great read. This book reminded me of everything I believe in about the body's need to rest and not constantly be working day and night to process food. But, I also believe that you should eat better when you do eat. That is why I'd also recommend that people read another book that I saw floating around on BN called “The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution.” I bought it thinking what more could yet another diet book tell me about losing weight, but it proved to be an eye opener about eating healthier. The chapter in “The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution” on what is in the foods that we eat every day is shocking. I'll never eat anything with “carmine” in it again. I already gave up hot dogs and now I understand why. If you are serious about losing weight, consider both books.

Another worthless diet

I have following this diet for a week - only eating during the 8 hour window, eating the power foods, doing the short HIIT exercise and I gained 3 pounds! Going back to Weight Watchers. That is the only thing that works for me.

    Waste of money!

    After the many pages of biology class you have to read, you finally get the entire diet which is basically eat anything you want for 8 hours then "fast' for the remaining 16 to allow your body to feed off it's fat reserves. While I did watch my calories, I gained 4 pounds! I gave it 1 star because I enjoy Mr. Zinczenko's "Eat This, Not That" books and this finally made me stop the insanity of looking for a quick fix.

    Didnt work for me!

    I read the book thinking it made sense and its convincing but the results was "0". The book lacked a clear plan besides the 8 hr concept. I read an article in a mens mag so I bought the book but found it interesting without results. A lower carb, paleo or calorie restrictive diet with a planned workout is the only real method our bodies were made for in my opinion that works. There is no quick and easy fix, only a disciplined life.

    Oops, AGAIN!

    Looks like one of those programs that promises weight loss, but doesn't work. Probably best to try a more, um, SUCCESFUL program like weight watchers. Just a suggestion.

    Doesn't work

    I wanted to believe this could work for me. After one week I hadn't lost a pound. During the second week I lost a pound, then gained it back the next day. The second week I lost a pound, then gained it back. The only reason I stuck with the plan longer was that it seemed to quell my cravings. I found the plan easy to stick to. But after 4 weeks of sticking to the plan ( with only 2 days of not eating on the plan - they say you only have to do it 3 days a week and still lose weight)my net weight loss was zero. Maybe this will work for some people, but I guess the old adage is true: Anything that sounds too good to be true probably is too good to be true. Some nice healthy recipes in the book, but plan doesn't work at all for weight loss.
