This is a terrific book. The information is given in a no nonsense
manner. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a realistic and
entertaining resource. I have not only lost weight, I feel fantastic.
I no longer have heartburn and my headaches are history. Gillian
delivers on her promises. ONE WARNING: it is time intensive to follow
the plan. I was strictly a heat and eat on the fly person. This book
requires gasp...cooking and prep and planning! Still I grudgingly have
learned how and it is sometimes even fun. Did I say it was a teriffic
book? It really is.

I love Gillian McKeith's show and her whole philosophy towards eating. However, the calorie counts for her meals are quite low--between 900 and 1000 cals/day--due to my rough calculations. I've had to supplement some of the meals with extra protein like a chicken breast or salmon. I'm also working out a lot more than the folks on her show do--I do about an hour of hard cardio/day, 6 days/wk. Plus, 4 of those days, weight training is incorporated into my workout.
I don't miss not eating bread, pasta, sugar and the like and I do feel better--after i adjusted the diet to work for me. And, yes, I did lose weight-plenty of it.
Before starting this diet, really do your homework. Be prepared to feel light headed the first few days and drink plenty of water. Oh and instant miso soup is a god send. Good luck!

THE BAD:

1. I live in a large City (Chicago) with every kind of store you can think of and I still had a hard time finding some of the ingredients used in the recipies. So you spend a lot of time shopping.
2. You will spend a lot of time chopping and cooking. If you hold down a job, you must be very organized.
3. The cost of most of the ingredients (organic) are very expensive. But the cost goes down once you get stocked on the staples, but is still more than I usually spend.

THE GOOD:
1. Most of the recipies are very good to great. (a few are not).
2. You will enjoy eating a variety of different tastes.
3. You will never be hungry. (I have a hard time eating all the food).
4. You will feel more energized and healthy.
5. Best of all , you will lose weight even if you are a postmenopausal woman like me. I lost 12lbs in 25 days.

This is the way I will eat for the rest of my life. I have never said that with any other diet or way of eating before now, and like most of you, I've tried everything.

Format: Paperback
Slim for Life is Dr. Gillian McKeith's 28-day ultimate health and detox plan. In four stages, the author provides step-by-step meal and snack plans to wake-up your consciousness, detox your system, and achieve a slim for life diet. The text includes menus, recipes, exercises (both physical and mental), and inspiration to break old habits and form new ones. This is a time-intensive program, but only for the first month of re-framing your nutritional thinking, after which the reader will be on a road to long-term success at weight maintenance.

Includes lush full-color photography. Recipes are in U.S. units (cups, oz, tsp, etc.), not metric units as suggested in other reviews.

This is the 3rd of Dr. McKeith's books I've purchased with the cookbook on it's way and I'm browsing through Slim for Life for the 3rd time. My husband's even paying attention now. I'm eating beans and grains that are new and interesting and above all delicious. Low fat diets never did much for my system aside from a few pounds and dull hair and thin fingernails. Protein and veggies was next choice and lost substantial weight but missed fruits and melons like crazy. This plan, protein from beans and grains and nuts is heavenly. We live in a small Southern community where many of her ingredients aren't available. Health Food Stores are also not available. But substitutions can be made and recipes altered a bit to give variety. After 2-1/2 weeks I've lost nearly 10 lbs, my clothes are loose but best of all my heartburn is gone, GERD is at bay and sinus headaches have said good bye. Can't say there aren't still days of wistfully eyeing my co-workers' hush puppies or donut, but truthfully? No inclination to toss Snickers bars into my basket at checkout any longer and a few bites of ice cream last week wasn't all that great. Before the change in eating, I could down a pint without hesitation and go "mmmmmm" the entire time. My salads are full of more ingredients these days, VERY green, with seeds for protein. A few of my favorite middle eastern dishes are also allowed - Hummus with veggies instead of bread and stuffed grape leaves with brown rice instead of white. It's been a fun experience and when the cookbook arrives, I'm sure it will be even more so. The books themselves are beautiful and being a lover of books, entice you to keep going through them even though you've memorized the gist of the plan. Dr. McKeith isn't the first person without "MD" credentials who knows good nutrition.Read more ›

This is a good additional reference for anyone tyring to follow Dr. Gillian's program. A few of the foods I had to look up on the internet. They call them different things in England. Also, all recipes are in metric. Get out your conversion table.
