I purchased the Food Lover Fat Loss System which is the best thing I ever spent my money on. When I saw Robert came out with a new book, Diet-free for Life, I e-mailed him to ask him what could he possible say more than what was in the system I purchased. He said it was a mindset makeover. That statement struck me hard because I always new the battle ground was in the mind. I thought if he can take the information I learned in the FLFLS and change my mindset about eating I would really be able to reach my goal weight. I am almost finish reading his new book and I can tell you it has a huge influence on the way my mind looks at food. I strongly recommend you get both the system and the book. It will be the last dollar you spend on diets and I spent and tried it all.

I read this book not knowing exactly what to expect. I found it very easy to read, written in a very common-sense kind of way. I found the fast/slow carb and protein info very interesting. I had no ideas that grouping certain foods together could affect your metabolism and fat burning. I thought the book was motivational without being over-the-top. I enjoyed the recipes in the book as well.

Overall, I would recommend this book to those who are struggling to stop the vicious diet cycles.

I purchased a copy of Robert Ferguson's "Diet-Free for Life" yesterday and spent most of today plowing through it. I read it twice, up to where the recipes start half way through the book. The second time through I highlighted what I thought I needed to learn this food plan, and then I wrote notes in a journal. I sincerely want to learn and follow this food plan, but I feel that the book is grossly lacking in details to help a person follow the plan. He does a good job of explaining how the body functions, and what happens when using an ordinary diet as opposed to his food plan. But he never mentions what I consider the main point of the diet, and that being which of his three formulas for fat release should a person use at specific meals during the day. He also does not give a complete list of the fast carbs, and the slow carbs, and I do not believe he even called them simple and complex carbohydrates. He does not state WHEN to eat the fast carbs and WHEN to eat the slow carbs. He gives portion size in "grams," but the recipes that are in the second half of the book are in "ounces." Not everyone was trained in both the metric and the English systems. I can not begin to convert the recipes into portions. In the book Ferguson talks so much about his various clients who are supposed to have lost great amounts of weight and he does not give enough information to the people who bought his book and who want to plan meals and lose weight. I went on-line to see if I could get some help to figure it out and I saw many people all over the internet asking for help with my same problems I have as I try to develop menus for myself with too little information. I am wondering if the omission was done on purpose so that people had to purchase the expensive pre-planned meals that he sells on his site.Read more ›

This book is well written, and it covers one of the most commonly missed factors of traditional diets "The Mindset". How you approach and how you view what you are doing and why, is key to success. Very entertaining to read making it easier to learn the principals that Robert is teaching. You learn how to use everyday foods that you love and eat them in a way the you not only lose weight you keep it off - for life. How do I know this you ask? I have been living The Diet Free way for well over a year and a half now enjoying my 41 pound and 40 inch release. I have went from a deniable size 16 to a joyous size 4! The Diet-Free for Life lifestyle is just that it is a lifestyle, one which I will live the rest of my life. I will never be on a diet again thanks to Robert Ferguson and the Diet-Free way!!!!!

Robert Ferguson was at Lafayette Ind. yesterday to promote the book. I saw him on TV and he made such an impression that I had to go see him in person. At the talk, people walking by were even drawn in, he was so engaging.

Basically Robert is the first person that I have seen that puts everything together: food, exercise, motivation. The opposite of fat is not thin but fit. Worry about putting on muscle rather than loosing weight. That we are engaged not in dieting but in a lifestyle change (how we live). And he uses the food we have to help us.

Look too many try to loose weight by dieting. But it is the way we live that needs to be changed. It is not just eating right but living right. And we can use the food we have, say being on the road as truck driver who mostly eats fast food. Same with exercise, start with 12 minute workouts so that you fool the body. Then increase your workout so that your body thinks that it is doing more. Start slowly. This is practice, it where we live!!!

What Robert has done is put together what I have learned from diabetes counselors, from fitness trainers, from the military. It one complete program. You can see the fusion of his background as a Marine, a nutritional expert (BS/MS/CN) and his work on his Ph.D in Sports Psychology.
