    Get rid of the sludge-y feeling

    I am a big fan of the You Are What You Eat BBC America show. The Gillian in this book is much softer and reasonable (and doesn't snoop in your pantry.) I picked up this book because I did rely on take-out and processed food. But I followed her recipes for a week (she recommends 8) and I saw a huge difference in my energy levels. I'm taken a milder approach by incorporating these meals several times a week. I have found several new favorites in this book. I eat the aduki bean stew or mung bean casserole weekly. And my while take-out menus have been gathering dust, I've lost 4 inches from my waist.

    This book changed my life...

    I recommend this book to anyone who is trying to lose weight! It will help you change your life! I guarantee you WILL see results! But if it turns out that it doesn't work for you, there's always Lap-Band...

    I Also Recommend:

    A Wealth of information

    I love Gillian's basic premise. Though some of her idea's can be a bit overwhelming long term. Even if you can't do all or nothing, I think most anything you can learn from this book is helpful. She is basically preaching Macrobiotics, with a few modifications. I like her primitive health evaluation techniques, and have found most of them to be true. It can seem overwhelming at times, in which case I would have to recommend "Modern Day Macrobiotics" for a simpler approach. Gillian knows what she's talking about, but not everyone can live as hard-core as she does. Modern Day Macrobiotics is suited for everyone from a short detox to a complete lifestyle change (and everything in between). Gillian's book is aiming for that complete lifestyle change. I totally get what she's saying, but it's just not practical for everyone all the time. I would still recommend it though, because there is a lot of information in the book that can help everyone. We should all understand food, and how it affects our health. Even if you aren't looking for a lifestyle change, you can benefit from knowing more about food and how to use it to better your life.
