Book Description

Lose up to 14 Lbs in 21 days!

Doctor Designed, Easy to Follow, Proven Success

The latest medical research shows hormones are the key to weight loss. Your hormones control how your body uses the foods you eat, whether it's used for energy or stored as fat. The Perfect 10 Diet balances these key hormones so you:

* Lose weight fast without going hungry (hunger wrecks diets)
* Have more energy!
* Start to lose weight without exercising (up to 80 pounds)
* Reverse the aging process and look younger for life

What Doctors Are Saying About The Perfect 10 Diet

"The Perfect 10 Diet program finally answers many of the questions that you have always wanted to know about weight loss. If weight loss was just a problem of calories in and calories out, everyone would be the weight they want to be. Congratulations to Dr. Michael Aziz for bring us this informative book on answers to one of the biggest medical problems of our time."
—Pamela W. Smith, M.D., MPH
Director Masters Program in Medical Science with a Concentration in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine, University of South Florida School of Medicine

" A must read. Dr. Aziz addresses how food interacts with hormones in this amazing book."
—Keith Berkowitz | MD, former director of the Atkins Center

" Filled with insightful science, presented in an accessible manner, to help you take action now."
—Ronald Klatz | MD, DO, president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine

The Breakthrough Diet That Gets Real-Life Results

Because The Perfect 10 Diet works with your hormones, people see results fast—up to 14 pounds in the first 21 days.

Other diet fads, whether they are low-fat or low-carb, wreak havoc on your hormones, which is why these diets are hard to stay on and the weight comes back the moment you stop.

Dr. Michael Aziz has personally worked with more than a thousand patients who lost an average of 10-14 pounds in the first three weeks on the diet, and who also showed remarkable improvement in the markers for heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes and more. Their overall health improved significantly. And they did it all while eating great food, feeling full after their meals and having more energy!

Below are just a few of the real-life results people have had on The Perfect 10 Diet:

SHARON: Sharon weighed 264 pounds despite a twenty-one-year struggle to control her weight through more than her share of low-fat, low-carb and fad diets. Within two years of starting The Perfect 10 Diet, Sharon lost 132 pounds by giving up the "fake" foods she thought were healthy. Better still, she has kept the weight off and enjoys increased energy and confidence.

MARK: Thirty-five-year-old Mark weighed 260 pounds at 5'9", with a high 40 percent body fat reading. He suffered from severe headaches, was pre-diabetic, and had high blood pressure. Mark lost 90 pounds in 10 months on The Perfect 10 Diet. His headaches were gone, and his insulin, blood pressure, and body fat were all at normal levels—plus, he has never felt better in his life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Practicality wise, not a "Perfect 10" February 13, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So the "Perfect 10 Diet", as others have mentioned in their reviews, asks you to essentially get rid of sugar, white carbs, artificial sweeteners, artificial additives, high-fructose corn syrup, and preservatives. You are asked to then stock up on all organic foods and full fat products. Sounds reasonable. However you'll find that your fridge and pantry is empty and you'll end up with one heck of a grocery bill.

Being a poor college student, I simply cannot afford that. I wish I could but that's just not in the cards. If you are someone who is in a pinch financially, I don't recommend this diet.

I do appreciate the research that went into this book. It's definitely credible. Yet, I find that the book is rather redundant. I get it that our hormones are thrown off by an unhealthy diet. I get it-- organic is better and the white stuff is evil. But, I don't need every single chapter hitting me with the same facts time and time again. I think the book could have been half to a third of the size it is.

I don't necessarily blame Dr. Aziz for this. I'd say an editor is more to blame for that. In fact, I applaud him for trying to get America back to a more natural and balanced diet. It is interesting to hear that Atkins and low-fat diets are not the answer and are in reality detrimental to our health.

The most valuable things to take away from this book are the following:

1. No matter how you want to spin it, sugar and white carbs are nothing but bad news because they mess with your hormones

2. Low-fat and Non-fat products are worse for your health than full fat-- it has more sugar and you'll store that as fat

3. Increase your vegetable and fruit intake

5.0 out of 5 stars A 10 for The Perfect 10 February 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I bought the book around the same time that I received the CD version of this diet. Let me tell you, if you really want to lose weight, this is a diet that you can finally stick to. Forget low-carb, low-fat, high protein and all those other fad diets. This is finally a diet tht is balanced and sensible and, most importantly, doable for most people.

Do you remember when you were young and you could eat just about whatever you wanted. Then came diets. It seemed that the more you dieted, the more weight you ultimately gained! But...most of us had parents, grandparents, or older relatives who ate real butter and cream, had eggs every day for breakfast, and yet remained slim all their lives. How did they do that and why can't we?

Well, Dr. Aziz gives you the science behind why their eating habits worked and why they can still work for us today. He identifies 10 major hormones and tells why they get out of whack with today's eating habits, and discusses the devastating effects upon our bodies and health. BTW, Dr. Aziz is referring to The Perfect 10 as in great health, not being a perfect 10 in physic...although that is likely to happen if you follow his eating plan.

He tells us that we need MORE fat in our diets to help with appetite control, but that the fats must be wholesome and real (none of those manufactured chemicals of fake fat), and that they must be balanced with protein and carbohydrates. His basic formula is 40% carbs, 40% fats, and 20% protein. He emphasizes quality and organic foods are key elements to this diet. He also pretty much forbids sugar and refined carbohydrates as being empty calories and creating a yo-yo effect upon insulin and other body hormones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost 23 pounds so far. And this book is life changing. December 28, 2009
Format:Hardcover
I had an advance copy of this book from Book Expo and I put it to the test starting in mid-September. So first, I am a diet failure. I have failed on every diet I've ever tried so I was really nervous about trying this one and assumed that it too wouldn't work. And I was really shocked when I started to lose weight. And my family was too!!! So I kept a chart and this diet really worked (and it's still working!!)

So now I'm at 23 pounds (hoping to make 25 pounds by the New Year). But what's important (I think) is the many ways that it's changed me. At Thanksgiving the kids were shocked (I mean really shocked) when I started playing football and frisbee golf outside with them. I have so much more energy. I feel clearer (like my head is clearer). My husband says there's 4 or 5 inches gone from my waist. I've had to buy new clothes. And it's easy to travel with (I travel a lot) and to entertain with (entertain a lot too). You know exactly what you can and can't eat and you don't ever go hungry because it's really about what you eat (it's about the hormones).

So while I've tried lots of diets, this is the first one that's ever worked for me. And now I have a plan to have all the extra weight gone (I needed to lose 60 pounds in total...so am 1/3 of the way there) by my next birthday. And I think I can do it. It's all about balancing hormones. Got it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Dr. Aziz finally got it right February 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I received The Perfect 10 Diet in the audio book form -it is unabridged, the complete book. There are 8 CD's included, and a bonus disc (not an audio disc) that includes all the charts, graphs, figures, recipes, sources, etc. that you can print out. Fred Stella narrates the audio version and has a pleasant, easy-to-listen-to voice. However, maybe Mr. Stella's voice is too easy to listen to, I found myself falling asleep during several of the discs, and I had to go back and re-listen to them. This was my first audio book, and will be my last one, as I like having an actual book to thumb through, or to go back to check a reference, much better.

It took Dr. Aziz many years to research and write this book, he certainly didn't want it to be a quick fix with lots of erroneous unsafe advice like what is currently all over the internet. It's a plan that you can easily stay on the rest of your life. It's safe and can be used by ANY age - adult or child. The book is written in easy to understand language, not a bunch of medical jargon that you would need a degree to understand.

The Perfect 10 Diet also has a web site with some good recipes - I'm not allowed to post the link here, but you will find it by Googling it.

Basically, any food items where you can't pronounce the ingredients are off limits. Which makes perfect sense, as all those chemicals ingested can't be good for us. Eat as close to the natural state, and organic is best, if possible. No fake food. High fructose corn syrup is definitely a no-no!

You also need to follow as closely as possible the 40% carbohydrates, 40% fats and 20% protein rule --- this will be explained fully in the book. You get to eat carbohydrates - but they are good carbs! You get to eat (natural) fat!
