Overview

At last, here's a book that synthesizes the increasingly popular CR (Calorie Restriction) diet for the layperson. CR is not a diet primarily about weight loss, although readers will lose weight. CR is about eating highly nutritious foods to extend your healthy years. Here's the concept: eat fewer calories and choose foods more carefully. This will reallocate how your metabolism uses its resources to convert food into energy; in other words, what goes in will be used more efficiently. You will feel better and function better—and the big bonus: the CR diet slows aging. CR lengthens the periods of youth and middle age and substantially reduces the risk of virtually all the diseases of aging. Brian Delaney and Lisa Walford, two longtime CR practitioners, will take you on a handheld stroll through the process, including an introduction to CR, how to do it, some of the key issues in the current dialogue, and the skinny on superfoods.

    A reviewer

    I was hoping to find new information about foods, diet and nutrition to lose weight and be healthy for the long term. This book is nothing but a repeat of information that is free and readily available and that I already know. The book has many different stories of people and how they have integrated different forms of this Calorie Restrictive diet into their lives. The basic premise is, eat foods of high nutrative content and low calories to lose weight and be healthy over the long term, and keep your daily caloric content low overall. I just wanted to say, 'Duhh! Is that all you've got to tell me??' They also talk about their research and how they have come to the conclusions they have about how calorie restriction leads to longer life in laboratory animals... that already makes sense to me so I did not need to be convinced. I just found this book impractical to use and moreover, at least 2 pages of the book were faded out and unreadable, so the copy was bad. This book seems to have been made just to make a buck. Real disappointment, waste of money, do not buy.

    Only Health Book You'll ever need

    I bought the book when it first became available almost a month ago (don't know why it says 'June 9' here--it was available earlier) and it has been extraordinarily helpful to me. I'm not one of these 'life extenders' who follow the diet to an extreme. I don't want to live to be 140 years old. I want to be healthy and trim. Other reviewers have talked about how the extremely clear explanations of some basic nutritional principles 'stick' in a powerful way that helps you make more sensible food choices. I have definitely found that to be the case. You 'feel' the harm a half pint of ice cream will do to your cells, and it's easy to say No. It's only been a month so we'll see how long the positive effects last... but right I can say I feel much better and I don't feel I'm making any kind of 'sacrifice', and I assume this will continue indefinitely. The personal stories were also very helpful. (I wish there had been more. That would be my only negative comment about the book.) I just saw one of the coauthors on Good Morning America a couple hours ago, who actually looked WAY too thin. It's too bad ABC didn't show the people following milder versions of the diet like Delaney the other coauthor since they actually look great. Maybe some people on this diet get obsessed with extreme health or extreme skinniness and that's what ABC wanted to focus on to make this sensationalistic. It's a pity because the extremists actually look almost scary. But for people who start out overweight (like moi), this diet is perfect.
