Without getting too deep into technical detail, the diet amounts to a kind of biochemical healing from the effects of years of bad eating habits. I have more energy, my general mood is better, even my fingernails are healthier. My doctor is getting ready to take me off blood-pressure and cholesterol medications.
The beauty of it is that I'm not walking around hungry all the time. In fact, I had to ask my wife to make some of the salads a little smaller because they left me feeling stuffed. The recipes are, for the most part, delicious, and we're already finding some creative ways to adapt the principles in ways we prefer.
The three-stage approach is helpful - a brief, fairly radical Stage 1 to "flush out the system" and retrain the taste buds, as well as get some quick early results to boost morale. Stage 2 is geared to more moderate, sustainable weight loss (adding in more grains and more variety than Stage 1), and Stage 3 is for long-term lifestyle maintenance. We were so encouraged that we did Stage 1 twice through before moving into Stage 2.Read more ›
I am also aware of Dr. Galland's reputation as a physician and can say that he doesn't jump on a health or diet bandwagon simply because it's popular or trendy. He writes about what he believes in and he believes in it because he's done the research and he's seen it work in his practice. There's a wealth of knowledge in this book, not just for weight loss but overall health.
An added benefit of this book is the sensible approach that the author takes to exercise and stress management. Most diet books don't even discuss these areas, although they are very important for weight control. Galland emphasizes walking and other forms of aerobic exercise and stretching and toning to prevent injuries.
This is an exceptionally well-balanced weight loss program.
