Review

A slimmer's delight OK! Tasty but healthy recipes will shed that belly in no time Grazia 'The 'Nigella of low-carb' ...recipes you'll want to gorge on, whether you're following their low-carb plan or not' Scotland on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

India Knight is the author of My Life on a Plate, Don't You Want Me and The Shops. She is a columnist for The (British) Sunday Times and is a mother of three. Neris Thomas is a film producer and artist; she has one daughter.

For years Neris and India used to bump into each other at parties; invariably wearing the same dress, because they were both on the porky side, but with a taste for clothes. However, this year they are buying each other tiny little designer jeans.

The book was a fun read.
Lynnie V
The language is frank - sometimes a little too frank (if you're opposed to the "f" word, skip a couple pages), but you don't doubt their sincerity.
Terri Rowan
I just finished reading the book and I can't wait to start.

This book is incredible! I'm on Day 10 of this eating plan and have lost 9 pounds! It truly is amazing. I've lost 40-lbs. up to now on the less-calories & less-fat approach but this way of eating is SO much less painless--once I got over the awful craving for breads, pasta, chips, etc. I'm just thrilled with the initial results. The first few days were pretty rough from carb cravings but once I got over that hump it's been very doable. I eat loads more veggies than I ever have and everything I eat is fresh. Nothing processed/altered--which is different from my other plan. I highly recommend this if you've "hit the wall" with your current diet. I feel SO MUCH better--no afternoon sluggishness and I wake up not feeling tired. India and Neris are a hoot and I love their daily entries for; it really helped me to read those. A+ and THANK YOU NERIS & INDIA!!! --A grateful reader.

Neris and India are the Trinny and Susannah (of What Not to Wear fame) of dieting. This book could have easily been called "What Not to Weigh," and it is more of a dieting companion than an actual plan. The Idiot-Proof Diet is basically a low-carb diet with a slight spin and some really wonderful recipes (sadly too few of them) thrown in.

The humorous, self-effacing tone is engaging and the journal-style entries truly make the reader want to join Neris and India on their day-to-day ups-and-downs of trying to lose weight - which they successfully accomplish. There are lots of great and useful tips, too. This book is basically for weight loss support, and it successfully fulfills that mission in an utterly charming way rarely found in other diet books.

This is definitely a book that appeals to women. I don't think men would identify with it at all, but of course the subtitle lays that out.

I read this book in 2 days from front to cover! I love it and I felt like they knew me all too well! There is many funny moments, many aha moments and lots of inspirations. This is unlike any other "diet" book i have ever read. I plan on starting this type of eating on monday. It makes so much sense to me as I am a carb whore! I am also a nurse and I bought all the supplements with no hesitation and I agree with this type of eating as to be healthy. I love eating fresh foods, organic foods and regular fat foods not fat free or light as they are not healthy for you at all.

If you are stuck in a rut, and the scale keeps going in the wrong direction, read this book. It is entertaining and they give lots of resources and web sites for things. What do yo have to lose, it is worth the 2 shirt days of reading, trust me!

I spent about 19 years going from slim and svelte to corpulent and colossal. Over the last few years I made a few half-hearted attempts at changing, either dieting or exercising for a week or two before throwing in the towel. I read all kinds of diet and exercise journals and spent a ton of (wasted) money on them.

This book is different.

First of all it is written by two people who have not only been obese and battled through the change, but they are willing to share not only the 'before' pictures but the trials and tribulations of the journey (including the failures).

Secondly it spends the first few chapters just getting to the point of WHY and HOW they got fat (and helping the reader to do the same). It gives some of the lies they told themselves (some of which were the same as mine), including avoiding photos/full length mirrors to avoid being confronted with their overweight bodies.

The perfect diet (IMO) is:

1. The one that works for YOU.
2. The one YOU can live with for the rest of your life.

It's not about dieting, as I've found out, it is about changing your "Way of Eating" and lifestyle - forever.

The Authors: The book is very blunt and straight to the point - which it NEEDS to be - if you can't handle being honest and blunt with yourself then you won't like India's writing. She is extremely blunt. Someone in another review called her "snarky", which I guess if you can't handle bluntness you might think that.

Neris on the other hand has a harder time coming to grips with her weight loss goals, getting motivated and staying motivated. There are quite a few of us who have 'dieted' who can relate to that. Throwing in the towel, giving up, feeling overwhelmed. It happens to a lot of people.
