Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Gault-McNemee, a physician in New Mexico who had been overweight most of her life, developed this unconventional diet "knowing that there really had to be a healthy way to eat good food and feel satisfied." The result of her own struggles and of working with overweight patients in her practice, this book, which she first self-published in 1996, uses as its guideline the motto "If God didn't make it, don't eat it." In other words, we should limit our intake to what we can pick, pluck, scale, or butcher. The book argues that we are slowly killing ourselves by what we eat, especially refined sugar; another section gives case examples from the author's patients showing how effective the diet has been for them. A large part of the book is devoted to recipes; Gault-McNemee also includes lists of allowable foods, forbidden foods, and swing foodsAnot all good, not all bad, and to be used sparingly. Her presentation is logical, building a convincing case for this lifelong eating plan. For consumer health collections and in public libraries.

From the Inside Flap

Finally, the end to fad diets!
We've all tried the impossible-to-maintain trendy diets that often deliver immediate results only to backfire the moment our vigilance wanes. God's Diet is the only diet you'll ever need. And once you become accustomed to healthy eating, this "diet" will simply become your new lifestyle. Learn the absolute way to sustained weight loss by adopting a complete, delicious, natural diet. There are no annoying calculations, no food exchanges -- no fall-off-the-wagon syndrome. Dr. Gault-McNemee teaches you:
How to trim down and improve your health and energy effortlessly
That everything you need to lose weight is at your local grocery store--no pills, powders, or shakes
How to get in the habit of choosing natural, wholesome food over gimmicky "diet" food, fast food, and food full of sugar and additives
That weight loss can be a straightforward, successful, and lasting process
God's Diet is the solution to chronic dieting because it relies on the simplest, most tried-and-true food path to health and healthy eating -- one our society has chosen to ignore for decades. Just remember, if God didn't make it, don't eat it!

I woke up one day and stepped on the scale and when it showed that I was closely approaching 200 lbs, it scared me to death. I knew I had to do something. I had never started any diets because all of them restricted what I could eat and most were made up of vegetables which I hate. I went online and read into the Atkin's Diet. I took a quiz on their site which told me that I was addicted to Carbs and Sugar and it was affecting my health, my well being and my sanity. I went to the library but I couldn't find the Atkins book. The title, "God's Diet" caught my attention. I decided a little help from up above couldn't hurt and I took it home. When I read it I was happy that it wasn't filled with bible quotes and that it was easy to read. I read more into it and I was surprised at how I was poisoning my body with all the chemicals in processed foods. I said, That's it, I am not eating any of that stuff ever again. That was in April 2003. It is now October and I am still following the diet. Exactly 6 months later and I feel awesome. I have lost almost 50 pounds and 6 pant sizes. No joking! I don't care about how she's not following the bible. I am a Catholic who attends church weekly. God is my friend. He has helped me so much and I know that it was He who put this book in front of me at the library. I don't need anyone to tell me what I should and should not eat. All I needed was a little advice. Everyone in my family has told me how proud they are of me and how there is no way they could give up bread and pasta and soda. I tell them that it is easy when you can have steak and mashed potatoes and eggs. It doesn't feel like you are suffering. I have not been hungry once. I eat brown rice, chicken, potatoes, eggs, bacon, beef, salad, all kinds of fruits, beans and nuts.Read more ›

I am finally losing fat! I found this book one afternoon in a bookstore just when I was at the end of my dieting rope...frustrated in the fact that I was trying to change my diet, but not getting anywhere in the fat loss department. I tried low carb, low sugar (which are both good, just not the total answer for me), and other approaches, although still eating some whole grain breads and crackers and other whole grain, but man made products. After much prayer, I found this book and I am now losing fat steadily after removing these whole grain-but man made items. I eat balanced meals, I'm never hungry, have lots of energy and I'm finally sleeping well! God's Diet is easy to shop and cook on, and easy to stay on for my busy soccer mom schedule. I have found my answer....and God in His wisdom knew what to do all the time!

God's Diet is the shortest, easiest and most absorbable book I have read on the subject of weight loss. If you need to make a production out of weight loss by counting points, weighing food or combining foods then save your money. This plan is so simple and makes so much sense you will wonder how weight loss ever got to be so complicated.

I've lost 50 pounds in 5 months. What else can I say? (I only gave it 4 stars because Dr. G's writing is not that good.) But the diet itself is incredible. This is something that can easily be a lifelong nutritional plan, with a full variety of fruit, vegetables and meats. And it's so simple it could almost go onto a single page. It worked for me, so maybe it will for you, too. Give it a shot.

I recently purchased the book - God's Diet: A Short and Simple Way... I lost 20 pounds in two months. I am still on the "diet". I put that in quotations, because I don't consider it to be a diet, but a lifestyle change. People have commented on my weight loss every where I go. I have sold more copies of Dr. Dorothy's book than I can imagine. I loved the recipes and the case studies. My self esteem has gone through the roof, and it was all very easy. It makes great sense to eat this way. Thanks, Dr. Dorothy!

I started this diet last month and in five weeks have lost 18 lbs. I feel great and am looking better everyday, and I haven't even started exercising yet. This diet is simple, there is no food weighing or calorie counting. A different title may have been more appropriate (as many people seem to be offended or turned off by the title, judging from previous reviews), but fortunately I was able to get past the title and give it an honest try. It is much healthier than I had been eating and, unlike a fad diet, does not totally eliminate or severely limit any food group. It's very easy when used as a guide to develop a balanced and satisfying eating plan. It's not dependent upon expensive prepared foods or even costlier supplements but it's certainly working for me.

I was looking for a simple, doable and healthy eating regimen that I could follow for the rest of my life. This is IT!
God's Diet is easily summed up in less than 20 words. 'If God made it, you can eat it. No sugar, no white flour, low salt and no fried foods.' Dr. Gault-McNemee explains the medical rationale for each facet of the simple plan in plain English, and it just makes good sense. The program allows you to eat all of the meat, fruit, and vegetables you want.
This book is not based on Bible law. It is called "God's Diet" to acknowledge God as the Creator of all things natural and healthy for human consumption.
I've been on the plan for about six weeks and have lost ten pounds without ever feeling hungry or seriously deprived. The program WORKS! Best of all, I've never felt better!
