I have found this book a funny and informative read.

The cold bath didn't really bother me but the black coffee, no sugar, revolted me on an empty stomach.

After having 40 years of my weight see-saw up and down, mainly up, I've been desperate for a diet book that might work. Most are complex with rigorous meal plans that are hard to cook, hard to follow and frankly boring.

Fulton's book is basically an adaption of the Atkin's Diet so I'm not surprised it drives the nutritionists to upset and anger. But there's more - some interesting suggestions of cold baths, black coffee, skipping breakfast - which seem weird but are well explained by scientific fact/observation as opposed to spiritualism that motives many diet books. He also advises appropriate times to take gentle exercise rather than run a hour on the treadmill.

I gave these ideas a whirl. The cold bath didn't really bother me but the black coffee, no sugar, revolted me on an empty stomach. But then after a stiff walk around the estate I felt a lightness and an energy I hadn't felt for a long time. However, I was ravenous after a couple of hours and couldn't concentrate until lunchtime. No snacking, the man says. However, after a few weeks I'm getting more used to it and my pants are a fair bit baggier.

His criticisms of certain fruits, carbohydrates and the muck the manufacturers put in food were well backed up by some science. I was interested to read that low fat products have sugar put in them to replace the fat and make them more palatable. So I threw out my low-fat yogurt and dinners. No wonder I was getting fatter instead.

Why I only give it 4 stars is that the diet can take over your life, and you might want to do something more interesting than take 30 minutes walking the roads before every meal, worthy though that is. Counting carbs is also a pain in the butt when you have to do a lot of travelling and entertaining. However, my lack of willpower is not Fulton's fault - if you are dead serious in losing weight it's one of the best diet books around, but I'm not certain how long I can stick at it.

Here are the facts: I am almost 70, 5'3" and was 235 lbs. Not a good combination. I have been on and off diets since I was twelve but hated them because 1) you have to obsess about what you are eating (combinations, trades, amounts, mathematics) 2) I couldn't eat what I like (I hate most vegetables...sorry but I'm being honest), and 3)I hate to cook. Over the years some diets worked but I had to keep thinking about what I was going to eat.

Then I happed across this book and the first thing I realized was that I got to skip breakfast. I hate breakfast. So I kept reading. Black coffee. I took mine with cream and sugar but I could adapt. So I ordered the book and have since lost 55 lbs in 5.5 months. (Maybe more because I had a really bad scale and didn't weigh often) I only tried the cold showers once...I live in a warm climate and it was summer so the water never got cold enough. For the first time, someone explained to me in terms I could understand what I should eat and how other stuff was bad for me. My body is so satisfied with what I can eat that I am not tempted by other things. And I just remember that if I eat it my body will stop burning fat. Too bad about the bread and pasta, but that's a small sacrifice. Exercise. What to do? I got a Leslie Sansone walking video and started with one mile every morning. And it started working! I may not have been doing everything perfect, but you don't have to. Now my collar bones are starting to make a public appearance! I have lost lots of inches around my waist and hips and I can now see the light at the end of the "big belly tunnel." And I am still losing.

An update to my original review:
You people who leave negative reviews and have never tried this program make me absolutely crazy. "It's dangerous and will result in ill health", "I expected miracle cure", "ridiculous morning routine ... starving yourself", "I'm concerned for people who follow his advice", "haven't tried it but I don't think it will work", "promotes anorexia".... I'm fairly certain you folks don't know how to read or else you're just uninformed. Or dumb. Perhaps a combination of these things.

Here's what the author suggests, while stating that even if you don't want to do/don't have time to do it all, do what you can:

Cold baths: while these are initially unpleasant - for the first minute or so - I feel absolutely great for the rest of the day when I take them. I am invigorated and have loads of energy. Some think this is going to cause heart attacks. People swim in water colder than this every day. Your body can get colder from being outside in the winter. If it's too unpleasant for you, don't do it. Simple as that. On the days I don't take the bath I still lose weight if I follow the rest of it, but I don't feel as good. Where, exactly, is the harm in this?

Drink coffee: I am not a coffee drinker, so I don't do this, but I do take a 200 mg caffeine pill, which is the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee. My God! Caffeine? How horrible for us! Perhaps I should be drinking wine instead

Drink green tea: this is a proven antioxidant. If you don't like it, don't drink it

Eat protein, all the vegetables you want, some fruit, and eliminate sugary, nutrient void foods: when did this advice become bad for you?
