Overview

You really can eat more and weigh less — if you know what to eat. As this groundbreaking book clearly shows, it's not just how much you eat, it's primarily what you eat.

Most diets rely on small portion sizes to reduce calories sufficiently. You feel hungry and deprived. Dr. Ornish's program takes a new approach: abundance rather than deprivation. If you change the type of food, you don't have to be as concerned about the amount of food. You can eat whenever you're hungry , eat more food — and still lose weight and keep it off. Simply. Safely. Easily. In this book, you'll find 250 gourmet recipes from the country's most celebrated chefs.

Unlike high-protein diets that may mortage your well-being, Dr. Ornish's diet and lifestyle program is scientifically proven to help you lose weight and gain health. People not only keep off the weight, they lower their cholestoral and reduce their chances for getting heart disease and such other illnesses as breast, prostate, and colon cancer; diabetes; osteoporosis; and hypertension. Dr. Ornish's program has given millions of people new hope and new choices.

Basically in a nutshell this book lays out information that can't be refutted. They have medical evidence of reversal of heart disease and certain cancers because of the diet. Will the diet help you loose weight? Yes, no doubt about it. Can you stay on this diet? Well, you have to give up fat, that is all fat in your diet. If you can live with that then you're in good. So far that hasn't worked for me. There is I believe more research that Dean Ornish could do to see if "good fats" could contribute to loosing weight and not creating disease.

Dr. Dean Ornish is a voice of common sense and scientific soundness. The high protein diets that are so popular are dangerous in that they cause bone damage and kidney damage. High protein diets cause the kidneys to excrete calcium from the bones. This is scientific FACT. High protein diets are also high in fat, which is devastating to the arteries and heart. Dr. Ornish offers a far safer and very effective alternative!

I have lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks following the advice in this book - my blue jeans are comfortable again. Dr. Ornish's 'theories' are explained clearly, almost as a manner of common sense. Eating fat will make you fat and keep you fat.
