Review

In a nutshell: The authors expand their list of 14 foods in 2003's SuperFoods Rx to include new picks and pices like cinnamon and turmeric. Plus, menus, shopping lists, and recipes help you drop pounds.
Try this if you need a plan to change how you eat. This book gives you smart ways to add fruits and veggies to your meals.
The bottom line: Eating nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables to lose weight is a slam-dunk strategy. -- Health Magazine, Jan/Feb 2008

From the Inside Flap

The SuperFoodsRx approach to weight loss is super simple: Consume high-quality SuperNutrient SuperFoods every day, and weight loss can be automatic.

Blockbuster best-selling SuperFoodsRx identified a variety of SuperFoods that could change your life, preventing disease and significantly improving your health. Delicious favorites such as blueberries, walnuts, salmon, and turkey were proven to increase energy and longevity. Now the authors provide an even more remarkable discovery--these same scrumptious foods can effectively and immediately promote weight loss.

Groundbreaking research has shown the secret lies in the power of SuperNutrients and their synergy. When the nutrients in these foods are combined, their effects on the body amplify--accelerating weight loss.

In The SuperFoodsRx Diet, the authors present a cutting-edge diet that provides you with everything you need to reach your optimal weight. You will understand, for example, how vitamin C in oranges has a powerful ability to break down fat; how new evidence suggests that green and black teas have thermogenic properties that increase metabolism, enhance fat burning, and decrease the tendency to store fat; and how the probiotics in yogurt enhance gastrointestinal health and aid you in metabolizing calories.

The SuperFoodsRx Diet presents a full diet program with simple and totally flexible meal plans, easy and delicious recipes, and countless tips and strategies that you will need to reach your weight-loss goal and achieve your greatest weight loss success. By following this remarkable advice, you can finally have the body you've always wanted--the safe and healthy way.

Aside from the somewhat confusing layout, I really belive that this is a great book, with some solid advice.

There should have been a prep and practice period before this book went to press.

The original SuperFoodsRx was a guideline for me that helped me loose over 100lbs. I highly recommend this book as a guide to get and stay healthy. It changed the way I looked at food and this book simplifies eating even more. I read this new book in two days and it completely reinforced everything I had read in the original SuperFoods Book. Preparing meals has become a game to me to see how many super foods I can get into each dish. My morning oatmeal is now made with soymilk, walnuts, berries and soy protein powder. If I can manage to eat and stay healthy for almost four years anyone can! I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to be healthy and give up fast food.

This book is packed with wonderful information on eating healthy. There is so much information in here! Don't expect to pick it up and get a grasp on it right away. It takes a few read-throughs to grasp all the information. I have a biomedical background, and it was a bit challenging to put together my 'slim-down' menu for the week. I found myself flipping back and forth between chapters trying to find out how much of which Category to add to what meal. I'm glad I did, though, because the food is delicious! Don't believe the reviews that say the recipes are no good. Yesterday I made the turkey-pumpkin chili - YUM! Amazon had the best price for this book, so grab one now!

I suppose if you are new to the whole superfoods theory this might be an okay start. However, I've read too many other good authors' works to have gone through this book and not say anything. The information is dated, at times misleading and inaccurate. I have three of this authors' Superfoods books. I should have bought only one prior to the other two. If you want to truly educate yourself, start with "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden, then try "seasonal food" by Susannah Blake, "The Food Substitutions Bible" by David Joachim and "the new whole foods encyclopedia" by Rebecca Wood.

What? Did anyone use this book before it went to print? Does it really take an entire paragraph to cover the with or without grains? Why in Chapter 3 am I asked "If you didn't create your menu plan as suggested in Prep & Practice Week detailed in the next chapter, now's the time to do it." Are you kidding me. Why on page 193 under the Lunch and Dinner Selections is there just an outline that is confusing. But wait there is more turn the page and you get to read it again but this time with the information that you are really looking for. Why am I given mix and match options before I am given the real options that I get to mix and match with? I know that there is life changing information in this book and I am going to figure it out, but by the time I figure it out the book is going to be worn out. There should have been a prep and practice period before this book went to press. Maybe it should have been put in the hands of your everyday user to better arrange the layout.

I have to agree with another reviewer that this book was a bit confusing. When I got to the point of actually planning my menus, I found myself constantly flipping through the book to different chapters, to make sure I was doing this correctly. Aside from the somewhat confusing layout, I really belive that this is a great book, with some solid advice.

Format: Paperback
I was excited to dive into this book as I like to shift between nutrition books to keep things interesting in my overall healthy lifestyle. After sitting down and reading through it, I must say, this is the worst and least accessible of any diet book I have ever seen. It claims to be a diet book that focuses on the long term, but by being entirely too nitpicky and complicated, there is no way that a working man or woman could seriously follow this without a significant investment of time and money.

First off, there are multiple recipes on this thing that require 2 and a half hours! What!? Who has two and a half hours to dedicate to making a tomato smoothie? I'm not exaggerating here. Other recipes require an hour or so on average, which is impossible for anyone who lives on the go.

Secondly, these bland recipes call for multiple, perishable ingredients that are used in such small amounts that you're throwing away money at the grocery store for food that you will inevitably have to throw away.

The layout of the book is complicated and it's chock full of ever-changing sequences of food equations that compliment and negate others in a jumbled, unorganized fashion. Good luck following along.

Simply put, this book is completely out of touch with the average lifestyle of working men and women. If you do follow it, get ready to spend large amounts of time and money trying to stick with it. And if you ever find yourself out at a restaurant (You know, that thing that normal people do to maintain their social and professional relationships?) well, forget about it. It will be a race between your waiter and the company you're with to see just who gets to murder you first for making such high-maintenance and downright, outlandish requests.

I still feel like The Abs Diet is the best book out there, and I recommend it over this disaster, tenfold.

This Book is packed with good, sound nutritional advice about not only how to lose weight and keeping it off, but also how to make it a lifestyle change so it is easier to keep it off. No fad diet ideas, no gimmicks. This diet provides good food and you won't go hungry. I ate more on this diet than I did before I went on it and I still lost weight!
I sleep better, my skin hair and nails are in better condition and after one month on this diet I lost 11 inches, and 8 lbs ! I love this diet because the foods you are eating provide no wasted calories.It is all very nutritious food that your body utilizes all of.
If you want to lose weight and love to eat...this is your diet and your diet book!
