Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet: A Weight-Loss Plan for Real Women by Neris Thomas, India Knight

Ever hankered for a diet book by and for real people--people who, you know, actually have a life? Congratulations: you've just picked it up.

Before we began our diet, Neris and I weighted 434 pounds between us. Our goal was to lose 140 pounds between us in under a year, to go from a size 22 to a size 14. And we did it. If two unusually greedy, cocktail-loving moms can lose this amount of weight without much effort, so can anyone.

This book tells you how two friends did it, and how you can do it too. It's not a diet devised by some bossy string bean who has never been more than 7 pounds overweight, nor by a fat middle-aged doctor, but a real, long-term, workable diet for real people. A modified and therefore bearable low-carb, high-protein way of eating, the diet really works and includes meal plans, recipes, advice on clothes, make-up and hair at every stage from fat to thin. It doesn't include impossible exercise routines or disgusting things to eat. Above all, it gets to the bottom of why we overeat--and shows you how to stop. There's never been a diet book like it--for women, by women, with jokes and useful tips, and advice that is truly simple to follow. What other diet book tells you to pour yourself a large drink at the end of the day, because you've earned it?


"You'll laugh out loud. Reading this book is like talking to a clued-up friend who also makes you feel great about yourself...amazingly frank...the honesty of their confessions exceed anything previously published!" ---The Evening Standard

I love this book!
While it's true the diet is based on popular low carb diets, the girls TELL you that they 'cherry picked' from others, to arrive at what they believe is a more livable way to get thin. They also deal w/ the funny, so familiar side of going through a diet...all the emotions, cravings,how you may be feeling on day 2 or 4 or 5. And it's so funny, and so real...you feel like they wrote the book for their friends.
Anyway, I borrowed my copy from the library, but wont be returning it I love it so.
I'll pay the fine to replace it, dont wory. I'm not a shmuck.

These two women have written a book that any woman who has battled with her weight will relate to. I found myself laughing out loud as I was reading, constantly saying 'that's me!' I have followed their diet advice, and am having wonderful success, partially because I feel that I have the support of two friends who have been in my shoes.

I love this book! I started this program in January and I have lost 65 lbs and feel amazing. I have never been so successful with any program as I have been with this one. I think these women are funny, smart and inspirational. I love that they are honest about pitfalls, holidays, family/friends' support and sabbatage...and mostly I love how they are honest with each other and true to themselves. To everyone who sees me and says.."You look great...how did you do it?", I answer, "I feel great! Read The Idiot Proof Diet!"

I thought this book was a copy cat of the Atkins diet. The only thing idiot-proof about it is that they tell you what to do every day. I thought this plan was restrictive. When you are finally allowed to add things back in it felt like the South Beach diet. This book was a mix of diets and I would not do it.

This diet is just Atkins. In a more just world they would be sued for plagiarism.
