Hi, I'm Joe Hamilton. Nearly two years ago I was in a meeting with the people that wrote this book. I watched how they ate and listened to what they said. With no advice or help I simply followed the principles they were talking about. There was no Full Plate Diet at the time so I had to follow with memory what I'd seen. It wasn't hard and I didn't starve or suffer at all. I laugh because sometimes I think, "if only I'd had the book", but very simply the results are the same. It's just simple.

I was a really huge guy. Nearly 300 pounds. In the first 3 months I lost 45 lbs just following the concepts you can find in the book. I was so glad to see the recipes and concepts laid out for everyone to follow. I ended up coming down to 192 lbs. I really didn't exercise at all. My weight has not gone back up. This IS the real deal.

I've read the book and give it my personal stamp of approval.

I also need to say thank you for helping to change my life.
ps
If it's been more than 3 months since I visited with friends, they actually don't recognize me until I actually tell them who I am.

This is an outstanding diet book because it is based on sound nutritional principles. I'm a retired family physician who has studied nutritional principles all my professional life. I'm usually skeptical of books with "Diet" in the title, because they usually promote some kind of fad diet, and I've seen dozens of such diets come and go. This book is different. It is based on solid science, but it is also very attractively presented. The illustrations are great. They are plentiful, very appealing, and always supportive of the written text. The authors have done an excellent job of presenting complex nutritional concepts in clear concise language that is very easy to follow. The title of the book summarizes the basic concept beautifully. A plate full of colorful veggies and whole grains is high in fiber, very nutritious, and filling, and yet, if one needs to lose weight, this Full Plate Diet is tremendously helpful in reaching that goal.
In addition to giving excellent nutritional guidance, the book is well organized. Early chapters begin with a clear explanation of the Full Plate concept, its benefits, and how to get started. Subsequent chapters go on with clear descriptions and illustrations of the best high fiber foods and delightful recipes. Later chapters give advice about eating at work, at restaurants, and on the road, as well as giving guidance on how to shop at grocery stores. The authors get high marks for presenting excellent health information in such an attractive, easy-to-read book. They have my congratulations!

Throw out all your other "Diet" books; this is healthy eating done right!
This book is short and to the point. Here is an outline of of the simple, feasible, and fun things you'll find inside:

Simple - add Fiber to your diet.

Feasible - you are already eating foods that contain fiber - just eat more of those.
Follow the 9 colorful 'Fiber Wheels' (Pg. 84) for hundreds of fast, easy recipes...pasta wheel, smoothie wheel, pizza wheel, etc.!
Look at the Fast-Food Ratings (Pg. 127) to see if your favorites make the healthy/fiber cut.
Cut out the Grocery List (Pg. 159) and take it with you to the grocery store!

Fun - Interesting factoids, (to dazzle your friends with), on the 'Top 25' High Fiber foods (Pg. 44), alongside completely useful information.

Feel Good about "The Full Plate Diet"! -
The book lists 12 ways fiber foods will improve you and your life (Pg.16) - and they're scientifically proven.
The 3 healthcare professional authors work for a Non-profit - and "The Full Plate Diet" is backed by years of helping diabetics (and others) get healthy, lose weight, and stay that way!

Get healthy, stay healthy, "The Full Plate Diet" will show you how. I love it!

I wish everything in life was this easy to get great results. Simply powerup the stuff you already like with high fiber add-on's and stop eating when you are full.

While I don't need to loose much weight, one simple idea in this book has worked for me to keep me at the lower end of my natural weight. I had never eaten flax seeds in my life until I read this book. They have the highest level of fiber of just about anything and they taste great. I sprinkle them on my cereal, my tuna fish sandwich, and vegtables. Think of them as sesame seeds. You can put them on anything.

You can go from the low end of your recommended daily fiber to the high end by just spinkling a teaspoon here and there on the things you already eat.

I even mix them with non-fat yogurt for dessert.

And I can feel the difference. I fill up faster and with less food.

This book is awesome because of it's simplicity.

Like I said I only picked one idea of 100's in the book....Flax Seeds !!

So many health and diet related books promote complete overhauls that are difficult to commit to for the long-term. Often times, I would start with yet another diet and hope that my determination would make the change last "for real". Inevitably the diet would be so different from my normal eating habits, routine, cooking style, and preferences that I would go back completely to my "usual ways" within a few weeks (or days!).

Not so with The Full Plate Diet! By promoting step by step ADDITIONS to my normal routine as well as sensible substitution suggestions, the diet truly has become a lifestyle change without me ever noticing!

The book walks the reader through different food categories, with memorable nutrition and preparation information that empowers to make better decisions within one's normal daily routine.

The pictures and descriptions of the various (healthy) foods are brilliant! Just in flipping through the pages, one is left craving a ripe avocado or bowl of black beans. There's also very helpful recipes for someone without a lot of time. The online community provides even further support with more recipes and helpful tips.

Highly recommended!
