Overview

In 1996, Drs. Goldberg and O'Mara embarked on an in-depth review of the scientific literature concerning weight loss and improvements in serum lipids through diet, as well as all of the popular diets being touted at the time. Sifting through hundreds of studies, they set out to create their own diet — one based on the most proven elements and soundest data from the scientific literature. The diet they created emphasizes very low carbohydrates with normal protein amounts, using high monounsaturated fats and reducing saturated fats, eating plenty of fiber, as well as natural sources of vitamins and nutrients from a variety of vegetables and some dairy products. After first testing the diet on themselves, and both losing weight, they started a formal clinical study in moderate-to-severely obese subjects, and they and others have now tested this diet more informally with hundreds of people of varying weights and ages. The Four Corners Diet has proven to be a bold and easy plan for eating a healthy, nutritionally balanced diet at each meal, every day, for losing weight now—and keeping it off for life.

    I lost weight and kept it off

    This diet is wonderful. I've shed all my unwanted pounds and have had no problem keeping them off. This diet has made me feel much better as well. You do not go hungry, and you don't have to buy all kinds of special diet type of snacks and foods. Even the time spent in the kitchen for making meals has now been reduced for me as eating on this diet is SIMPLE!! I love the book and I love the diet. I plan on staying on this for the rest of my life.

    This is the best diet out!!

    I have been on this diet since it was first called the GO diet. I lost all of the weight that I wanted and did this without starving myself to death. This diet gives you so much energy that the extra hour or two of 'life' that you receive each day from needing less sleep or no more afternoon naps is priceless. It is obvious that the reviewer on June 7, 2004 has not read this book or ever been on this diet. They must be confusing this diet with another because coffee is a pharmafood on this diet and is specifically allowed on this diet (I drink several cups a day out of a life long habit). This diet is easy and is really a life changing diet. I plan on staying on it for the rest of my life. The energy, not to mention the trim, firm body, it gives me is worth eliminating a few crumbs of bread from my life. Now that it's summer time this is also a perfect time for everyone to give this diet a try. This diet goes really well with summer grilling.

    Don't Waste Your Money

    A poor excuse for a low carb diet. The authors even tell you to start counting the carbs in black coffee if you can't lose weight on their diet! ...Umm...maybe it's the diet and not the black coffee! You're better off with Life Without Bread, or even the Atkins books. Don't waste your money.
