With 60% of Americans currently overweight, something is still missing when it comes to finding that optimal eating plan and Dr. Schnur may have the key to what that is.

Imagine eating Spanish couscous, Ham and cheese egg muffins, chicken pasta salad and STILL managing to achieve a nice, steady weight loss. I'm sure this will be a shocker to low carb devotees but, speaking as a former low carber, I've lost MORE weight on the Reality Diet, feel better and don't crave carbs as I used to.

Committed as I was to "low carb" diets, I didn't exactly have high hopes for this one but was shocked to see the pounds coming off. Besides, I'd gotten bored with counting every carb and I missed some of my old favorites

So I was opening to trying something new and discovered that this is a truly sensible diet, with an emphasis on just enough fiber to keep your body operating at maximum metabolic efficiency. What a difference that makes!

Here was my experience on this diet (and yes, I WAS skeptical when I saw how many grams of carbs most of these recipes contained):

1. A steady weight loss of about 7 -8 pounds a month which adds up to 30 pounds in about 3-4 months. Sound too slow? Not if the weight STAYS off.

2. Feeling fuller than ever and actually having to struggle to eat ENOUGH calories, quite a novelty for a diet!

3. More energy.

4. More efficient and regular digestion.

5. No dark circles under my eyes - maybe because of increased circulation or a missing nutritional ingredient?

6 Reduction of wrinkles, perhaps from drinking more water or having better circulation.

I have been on diets all of my adult life and never thought that i could lose weight until Dr. Schnur published this book. I have only been on the diet for exactly one week now and have lost 3 1/4 lbs this first week. I have eaten more than i would normally eat. I have not been hungry. I have enjoyed learning about sensible eating by reading food labels and looking for the foods that are better for you containing more fiber, but best of all, i like the simplicity of being able to eat well, eat foods that i like, eat all kinds of food, and not feel that i am so restricted with part one, then part two, then maintenance to keep the weight off. Dr. Schnur has come up with a manageable way of life that makes so much sense! I recommend this book wholeheartedly and without reservation. I am going to buy it to send to my friends who are always complaining that there is no such thing as an easy diet....THIS IS SO EASY THAT YOU DON'T FEEL THAT YOU ARE ON A DIET......THIS IS ONE WAY OF EATING THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE WITHOUT DEPRIVING MYSELF OF ANYTHING! THANK YOU DR. SCHNUR!

I think the reviewer from Indianapolis is on the money with the review. It cannot be put any better than that. I personally was lucky enough to have the diet available to me before the printing of the book and I must say that it works and you don't. What I mean by that is not that you don't have to try to lose weight on this diet but it does seem that way as you dig deeper into it.

Some diets seem to require you to "make this" and "buy this" ... or prepare this meal the night before. You end up losing weight because of all the running around you are doing to prepare your different meals. Other diets say "you can't have this". OOOHHHHH, let's think about this one. When do you really want something the most? When you can't have it! And you will want it because the thought has been planted in your mind that you can't have it. Those of you who have been on diets, don't you get sick of going out with friends and saying "Oh I can't eat that because I'm on a diet" and then you chuckle while thinking ... "Man I wish I could have that dessert or that glass of wine".

What I am getting at while making light of the situation so many people go through is that this diet is just as the name implies. This is "REALITY" and depriving yourself of things you like is not reality folks. "REALITY" is enjoying your favorite foods, being able to go out and enjoy your food while eating healthy, improving your health with healthy eating and exercise ... not starving yourself! "I am going to eat one meal today..." and "I've only eaten ..." are phrases that you all have probably heard or used yourself. Not the case with the "Reality Diet". I could sit here and write glorious things about the diet all day but they would truly just be words to you unless you try it. I urge you to buy the book.

I love this plan!! I am so relieved to finally read and learn about a health plan that includes all of the food groups, since I love all types of food. I have tried a few low carb diets and they have only given me short term success and I have always been concerned about the vitamins and nutrients I was missing by cutting out so many foods like grains and potatoes and corn etc. For me it was just was not realistic to never eat some of these foods again. With the Reality Diet I learned about the importance of fiber and the 2:90 rule is such an easy and realistic measure to follow. I have already started following the diet and I am thrilled to say that the suggested meals are delicious, filling, and I have so much energy throughout the day that I am actually motivated to go for a jog after work!
