    Eat More, Weigh Less

    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.

    A Healthier Choice for Weight Loss

    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!

    Makes Sense and It Works!

    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.
