My girlfriend and I have been using this book for several weeks and the book and diet have proven very effective. We are using it for weightloss since neither of us is suffering from bloodpressure issues. However, although we each have made good headway with our weightloss goals, the book seems to be lacking in the area of proofing. There are numerous recipes which are omitted from the book, which we have had to make up for by searching the net or just winging it. There are some recipes designed to provide 2 servings, some for 4, and even some for 6. This makes planning a chore. It seems the editor could have made the book internally consistent, at least, and provided most of the recipes (since simplifying this diet was the benefit of buying the book, right?). Furthermore, we feel the balance of the menus from breakfast to dinner are widely fluctuating. So on one day, all of the meals taken together make for a balanced diet throughout the day. On another day, I'm starving after breakfast, and dinner is huge. Overall, the book does a fine job of getting you going on something that could seem to be just a vortex of theory. Hopefully they will come out with a second edition and see better sales.
