Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Dieting is like holding your breath," NBC News medical correspondent Bob Arnot writes in his introduction. "You can only do it so long." His book details ways to eat a lot of food but still get lean. He recommends long lists of "hard" foods--those that your body has to work to process and put to use--and "soft" foods, which make you fat. There's also quite a bit about using foods to manipulate the neurotransmitters that control moods, like serotonin, which can make us feel good about ourselves, and dopamine, which makes some feel alert and productive. A well-written and thorough dietary sourcebook. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This program works. No gimmicks, no weird foods, no rabbit food. I lost 28 lbs. in 2-1/2 mos., eating vast quantities of foods that I like. Dr. Bob acknowledges busy lifestyles, and even includes "fast" foods suitable for the very busiest traveller. His premise is that "foods are drugs," and he teaches you to use it to your advantage, working with your body's metabolism and nutritional needs. As soon as I read his comment that dieting is "perverse and unnatural," I knew that I had found a program I could live with!

I am 54 years old and had to retire from the National Guard last year because I could not keep my weight under control. During my career I have lost count of the diets I have attempted with the same results--failure. My daughter asked her Dr. about a diet on a recent visit and he told her about Dr. Bob's book. She read the book and told me about it and we both started following his suggestions a week and a half ago. I have lost 4 lbs in this time period. This is the first time my weight has gone in a negative direction in 4 years. I don't call this a diet. It is a whole new way of eating. I don't agree that this book is hard to follow. There is a lot of information in a little space. I read the book through once to get the basic idea of the plan. I am now reading it again and taking notes so I can fully understand how my body has been fighting against me all my life. I just wish that this information had been available to me years ago. On this plan you don't need portions. You are always full with no cravings. It has been an adventure eating new foods that I never knew existed. It is true that the book offers no menu suggestions, but the internet is full of ideas on ways to cook and season the foods on the low GI index list. One thing that I like about this plan that it isn't rigid. I had purchased a bunch of banana's the weekend before I started the plan. I hate wasting food, so as Dr. Arnot stated, I mixed the bananas in my oatmeal to lessen the Glucose load on my system. Thanks Dr. Bob Arnot. P.S. My daughter is having as much success as I am and more. She had been trying to lose weight since my beautiful grand daughter was born 7 months ago with no avail. She was runnin 5 days a week and could not get over 4 miles. Since starting the plan she has been able to hit 7 miles and said she felt like she could have gone farther.

Whenever one of my friends complains about his/her weight I recommend this book. I do not have a history of weight problems, but at 6'2 and 210lbs I noticed a nice tire settling in for the long run around my waist. Like so many other people, I subscribed to the more carbos, less fat plan, and kept adding weight. I always exercised, so I knew that wasn't the problem. The advantage of Dr. Arnot's plan is that it doesn't eliminate any of the major nutritional components. The Zone diet eliminates carbohydrates, and thus fruit and vegetables in the process. Tradition diets eliminate calories and fat. With this plan, you may be consuming fewer calories than before, but it doesn't feel that way. I feel like I'm eating alot, but I'm losing weight. As for difficulty in understanding the book that some reviewers have mentioned, there are charts that point out lean proteins and low-glucose load carbohydrates. Make these the bulk of your diet. Perhaps the most important message of this book is the differentiation of complex and simple carbohydrates. Learn to read labels and avoid or limit simple carbohydrates and you are on your way.

I disagree with other reviews labeling this book difficult to follow. I did read it twice thoroughly and still refer to it often.It is not a cookbook, yet there are good ideas on preparation. If you learn the carbo/fat/fiber lingo you should be able to find recipes which adhere to this plan. There are so many on the internet alone! I, too, am athletic and ate low-fat, high carbo for years. When sidelined by surgery and also on beta-blockers I began to feel lethargic and gained two dress sizes. Every time I tried to resume my running routine, I couldn't make it through 3 miles.My daily lunch was pasta marinara or a baked potato with salsa. After reading this book, I realized that I needed a drastic diet overhaul to regain my shape and fitness. I switched to an ACE inhibitor and cut out the white flour and high glucose carbs. I made pots of beans/grains every week and seasoned them with salsas, vinaigrettes,lite parmesan;put them in soups, whole-wheat pitas and tortillas, stir-fried them, etc. Within 3 months, I was running 6 miles, lifting weights and wearing dresses that I hadn't worn in 3 years. I am 46 and feel 20 years younger. My body is strong and fit and I am NEVER hungry, nor do I have cravings. For biking, I suggest buying an indoor "wind trainer" on which you mount your own bike. It is more effective than regular stationary bikes, and you can use pedal straps for better form.When the weather is nice, you'll be in bike shape! Buy this book, follow it at least 80% of the time and you will be amazed by the way you feel and look.

There are no menus or recipes but the basic philosphy is easy to follow. No white sugar, white flour, or high fructose corn syrup. Whole grains, lean protein, lots of fiber through fruits and veggies make up the bulk of the foods you eat. Yes carbs are OK as long as they are slow load complex carbs. I have lost over 80 pounds since April (5 months). I don't use the word diet because it doesn't feel like one. I feel full all the time. People are amazed at what I am able to eat. Cravings have disappeared. Just find foods that you like from the lists and eat them at the right times and in the right combinations. I am the cook in our family and it started with me making two seperate meals each night but gradually everyone's diet started changing and now we are all eating much more healthily. Regulating your blood sugar and insulin levels through the food you eat is the key. I feel better than I have in my adult life and added regular moderate exercise after about a month of eating this way. This book is a life changer and saver. My cholesteral plummeted to normal, healthy levels after about four months. Buy this book and change your life TODAY. Thank you Dr. Bob Arnot!!
