I did Jenny Craig and had results but they were short lived and quite expensive to maintain. I tried The Makers Diet, too restrictive for the long term. Followed Dr. Colbert's What Would Jesus Eat, also too restrictive. After that, I spent over 5 years with Weight Watchers and had tremendous results but with great effort. I had to weigh and precisely measure my food for those 5 years. I got so incredibly bored with all of that and couldn't imagine doing that for the rest of my life, UGH!! I'm only 38 and have such a long life to live still and want freedom and health and contentment with my weight! I first heard about this plan in June 2005 from a friend and it made so much sense to me. I thought, well, there's nothing to lose (except pounds) and no financial investment (just a good digital scale). I needed a new scale anyways. So I started that day with my current weight and went for it. The next morning I went through my routine and each day that week. When my week passed and I was ready to work on the next pound, I was already down!I was amazed at the little effort I had to give and that I could just eat, reasonably, and enjoy life. There was no stress or weighing or measuring, YEAH!! I figured if it worked that first week and was pretty easy well then I would give it more time and decide if it was for me later especially after the holidays. I thought if I could survive the holidays than this was for me. In this time the book was published and I was able to read more of the details. It was an easy read with humor and light-hearted fun. I laughed quite a few times. Ted shares his own struggles and I could relate to so many. His wife, Gayle, shares also and adds a tender touch especially for women which I appreciated. I made it through with flying colors and I can share that I am now down 24 pounds and still decreasing and it's still easy and no stress!! I ACTUALLY ENJOYED THE HOLIDAYS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS! I am completely sold on the Jersalem Diet. IT WORKS! No one has to know what I'm doing and I have so much freedom to eat and enjoy my family and friends. My health has greatly improved-blood pressure and cholesterol and stamina. My strength is increasing and so is my drive to be more active. My husband and family are grateful that they no longer have to listen to or deal with my former frustrations and complaints. My kids are even sharing my results with others and love my 'fat' days. That's when I exercise a little more and as a result my mood is better and I have more energy for them. My husband likes those days too :-) I have shared this with my family and plan to give The Jersalem Diet away to everyone I possibly can. I CAN ENJOY FOOD AGAIN, GO OUT TO EAT AND SO MUCH MORE! Don't wait another day, you can start it immediately. The cost of this book is such a small investment for such a big payoff! A few dollars that will change your life. I can hardly wait for the next few months to pass--I will be at my goal and still loving it! Be Blessed!

This is the first review I've written, but I needed to share. Anyone else who has struggled with weight loss understands that feeling when you find something that finally works.
My feelings are completely opposite of the earlier reviewer who had problems with the author not being a dr. All my previous tries and failures were following the advice of "experts", the nutritionist's and dr's. This was the first "diet" that actually worked AND made me feel good. Usually I would lose weight but feel hungry, cranky, tired and miserable. Then I would binge and give up. But, with this diet I felt good physically and emotionally.
At first I was dissapointed that I would only lose 1 pound a week, then after I started I realized that I didn't feel like I was dieting AND I lost 1 pound a week so it was a win, win. Six days a week I lived the same way that I had when I gained the weight, and 1 day a week I ate really satisfying foods.
Now I'm feeling good and spreading the news. Everyone who is about to give up needs to read and try this book first.

The Jerusalem Diet is practical, easy to read and enjoyable. The diet program has freed me of the "diet guilt" I've had my whole life and encourages me to live life instead of being controlled by my diet. My husband and I have been following it for almost two months and have lost ten and eight pounds respectively, with a goal of losing one pound per week. I would recommend this book and diet to anyone. Easy to follow, and still enjoy life and food. What could be better?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Jerusalem Diet is a faulty, misleading 'diet.' Right up front, the author admits that he's not a nutritionist, and the misinformation that is strewed throughout the book proves it. I especially was turned off by the author's derogatory terminology concerning people who battle with weight. He seems to think that anyone who is overweight is fat and lazy. Period. I did not like his condescending and cavalier tone, and his diet is seriously flawed. But then again, I have trouble respecting any man who eats yogurt. Read other books, books written by people who know what they're talking about, i.e. South Beach, etc. There is no weighty substance here.

JERUSALEM DIET BOOK WAS EASY READING AND HUMOROUS. THE DIET IS GUILT FREE AND LIFE GIVING. I'VE BEEN ON IT FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND HAVE LOST 12 POUNDS, MY DAUGHTER HAS LOST 12 POUNDS, SON-IN-LAW 15 POUNDS, CO-WORKER 17 POUNDS, AND CO-WORKER'S SPOUSE-7 POUNDS. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND DIET TO ANYONE.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
