Format: Hardcover
This book is packed with good ideas and information that everyone should have without the usual diet-book delve into scientific jargon that one just skips over. Although there are the usual chapters on carbohydrates, proteins, and fats Dr. Colbert has talked less about the chemical makeup of the food type and more about how it works and what is good and bad about it. The chapters are short so if you feel you need to absorb the information before continuing on there is no overwhelming feeling of having to finish a 100 pages first. I found it interesting that he differentiates between glycemic index and glycemic load. His program is low glycemic load with the carb:protein:fat ratio of 40:30:30. Yes you can have carbs - low glycemic carbs. I think that is one of the things that makes this diet doable, there are no really "forbidden" foods other than junk foods. Also he has you eating every 3-3 1/2hours with a calorie range of about 1800 for women which is higher than most diets. He considers anything below your BMR to be putting your body into starvation mode which of course means you plateau out quickly and then gain again, a common problem with many low calorie diets. Although he seems to focus on organic vegetables and meats he does include many brand name suggestions. He also includes a section on bible verses that promote healthy eating and positive actions and thoughts though this is not a bible-study program. Well written, lots of information that is easily readable and food that is available for everyone.

As someone that has struggled with her weight since my second pregnancy (and on down through this current, 7th pregnancy) I have bought and read a lot of books on dieting. I have tried a lot of diets. I have succeeded on some and failed on others. I have gleaned a lot out of some books and gained nothing but weight by reading others. Sometimes it feels like I'm stuck on a merry-go-round of dieting and diet books. I think I have finally found a way to get off the ride.

The "I Can Do This" Diet is the most helpful and resourceful diet book I have read. It is packed full of good information in easy to understand form that will actually make a difference in your health. The book is broken down into 4 sections. The 1st one is on Understanding Weight Gain and Weight Loss. The beauty of this section is that so many people are obsessed with getting the weight off, but they never stop to evaluate how they have been putting it on. This section takes a lot of different things that I have heard here and there and puts it all together (metabolism, glycemic index, carbs, protein, bad fats & good fats, beverages, portion sizes, etc...). This book is valuable if all you ever do is read the first section.
The 2nd section is getting you ready to begin this particular program (or lifestyle change). And then section 3 breaks down the actual diet. Section 4 is What to do When Weight Loss Stalls and it has a lot of different quizzes that can help you figure out where your body may be letting you down. It's all good stuff, but I want to focus on the diet itself for a moment...

What I am excited about with this program is that it is very balanced, smart, healthy and easy. Some basic principles are... well, I would go into it but then you wouldn't need to read the book.

I got this book, and followed it, mostly. If you do go on it, it's for life. It's a healthy way of eating, no sugar, white flour, pop, etc. Also, you need to eat a big breakfast, and only green carbs after 6pm. I'm glad I bought the book, my Mom is reading it now, she's 76. We heard about it on TBN, the John Hagee show.

I lost 30 pounds 20 years ago on the 40-30-30 `zone' diet. This took 8 months and lots of calculations balancing protein, carbohydrate and fat grams so every meal and snack was 40% carbohydrate, 30% protein and 30% fat calories. I lost 25 lbs of fat I'd been carrying around for 8 years. That revealed a fibroid tumor, and I dropped another 10 lbs after surgery. Five pounds of that was tumor, the rest was muscle and water weight. Body fat dropped from 33% to 18%, clothes size from 14 to 4. I ate pricey nutrition bars, protein shakes, cottage cheese and fruit, lean meat, seafood and salads. I was very lean, with more energy than ever before or since. People squawked about the scrawny look so I gained back 10 lbs (eating out of zone), and easily kept my weight at 120 for 10 years. I shipped my zone diet system books to a friend in England, figuring I'd mastered this way of eating. My size 4 jeans fit nicely, but I preferred sloppy size 6 petites. For another 5 years I seemed to eat pretty much what I wanted and maintain 120. In the mid-50's, this set weight began to creep toward 130. Those size 6 pants became work clothes, and my new sloppy jeans were size 8. Net gain in 15 years was 20 lbs., 4 sizes.

A friend also struggles with excess weight he thinks he can lose by exercising. Each January he moves his exercise bike and ab-rocker to the living room, uses them a few times while watching TV, gets sore and moves them back to the bedroom to be clothes racks again. I hate exercise and hope to lose weight by dieting. He can't give up fried foods, big meats or white bread, so his hope rests in exercise. We both need more exercise, more little meals and fewer junk calories. Last year he remarked, 'I think I could make it as a vegetarian.
