I've been following the diet in this book for almost 4 weeks and am absolutely amazed at the results. Just to clarify where I started - at 129 lb. but with a 31.5 inch waist - I'm 5'4" and 59 years old (female). I was not interested in losing any weight particularly, just the 'spare tire'/'muffin top' or whatever else you want to call the unappealing impenetrable flesh that seems to gather around the middle. Within the first 10 days I had dropped down to 124 lb. but more importantly - lost 2.5" off my waist that I've been trying to lose for about 10 years. My own plan will be to go back and do the plan again from the beginning as they recommend at this point and to continue on this program until I have lost the next few inches. There are many negative comments about the technical aspects of the book - written by many people that have been studying this type of nutrition intensively - as have I. And I must disagree with all the complaints. This book tells you what to do, what to eat and why. There is sufficient explanation to work the plan and get yourself on track to the body you remember. Best of health to all of you!

My husband and I went on this diet; we are both in our 50s. He's in good shape, but wanted the flat belly of his twenties. I wanted to lose the 10-20 pounds I'd gained over the decades. He likes protein; I love carbs. Yet both of us succeeded, and amazingly it came right off our waists.

Around day five, both of us were finding it really difficult to handle the restrictions. But we hung in there together, turned the corner a day or so later, and found our cravings had subsided. Once that happens, it is really easy to stay on because your weight drops and you look great. We both lost 8 lbs in the first 2-3 weeks. You don't just lose weight; you lose it in places that are all too visible. Three months later, we are both enjoying eating this way. For the first time in decades I weigh less than I weighed when I became pregnant with my son 19 years ago. This is a great diet -- we are both committed for the long term.

Like many of the other reviewers, I have followed the Eades' work for years. I've appreciated their scientific explanations of how things work in the body and their recommendations of supplements and other guidance on how to eat healthfully and lose weight. But sometimes you just feel, "tell me what to do and I will do it." All those reviewers quibbling over the book and saying they expected more avoided trying the diet. My advice is to try it yourself -- because it works!

I truly wanted to like this book more than I did. I've been a fan of the Eadeses since I first read Protein Power back in 1997, and I currently follow their blogs regularly. I'm a proponent of low carb dieting for health reasons and have followed a low carb diet for a while now. But I also am no longer losing any weight on it (though still have a long way to go), so keep looking for things to get the scale moving again.

So I had a lot of expectations from this book. Admittedly I am only on my 5th day of following their plan (at least as best as I can, more about later...) and so far have not lost any weight, and am hungry constantly, yet perhaps suddenly something will kick in and I'll start to see something miraculous....

But the book itself was just a disappointment in so many ways. The actual information contained in the book is quite slight, and very lacking in detail. Perhaps this is a channeling of my inner geek, but what I loved about Protein Power was the detailed science of why it works. But there is little of that here. As an example, one of the things they tell you to use is something called DAG oil. The advantage of DAG oil, they say, is that it is 80% diglycerides rather than triglycerides as most oils have, and this gives it an ability to help reduce the fat in the body. But they give no details at all about this or why it works. And thus I'm very hesitant to use an oil that is extensively processed from the already heavily processed soy and canola oils, both of which have extremely unfavorable omega 6/omega 3 ratios (as does DAG oil) and neither of which I would ever touch.

But the Eadeses blithely say to replace a daily tablespoon of the oil you usually use with DAG oil...

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a helpful and effective diet plan, but I felt it was somewhat marred by inconsistencies, by the not fully explained requirement for three shakes and one meal a day in the first two weeks, and by the inclusion of one or two 'magic practices' that seemed like the earmarks of a fad diet.

But I figured "What the hey, I've never done one of those weird fad diets where you lose 15 pounds, why not give it a try once in your life?"

I already knew from reading "Rethinking Thin" by NY Times reporter Gina Kolata, that low carb and low calorie diets have been found to be equally effective, with the low carb producing results more quickly.

So I tried this one and for me it really worked. In six weeks.

Like most Americans, over the years I have been interested in diets and diet books and, also like most Americans, over the years I have maintained my overweight status -- that is, until I found the Eades website, got this book, and tried to follow their diet plan.

I say I "tried" to follow it, because there was no way I could have one meal and 3 protein shake meals a day. I thought I would be able to do it, but no dice. The diet is just too hard. I think it is a flaw of the book that the reasoning of exactly why the protein has to be liquid is not given. I just was not ok eliminating so much solid food. It gave me kind of an odd feeling in the head, I can't really describe it exactly. I didn't like it much, but I tolerated it ok.

By the time I was ready to start my six week stint, I had actually been on board already for a month with no sugar, no caffeine, no wine and not many carbs. So that part was ok. And, like the Eades earlier Low Carb book, which I recommend you obtain, the 6 Weeks Cure has really good recipes.
