This book is helpful but incomplete
on September 2, 2013
I just finished reading this book, and while I do like the general concept of the book, I did not like that the author gives incomplete information with the hope of cross selling his other books, telling you that you can buy his other book to get the detailed diet of the generalities he explains in this book
Also I felt that the book is incomplete in the help you receive with the DQS scoring by food type, where foods are assigned points by type and frequency of consumption during the day, a twist on the weight watchers system where food is also assigned points, but weight watchers gives you many pages listing foods and their points, here you get a guideline where you must categorize all food in seven types and a very small sample of foods and their score, but there are dozens of food I eat I am still unsure how to grade after reading the book, and I get the impression under his system 100% Natural Honey woud be graded to be the same as a Milkey Way Chocolate.
He provides the diet for some endurance athletes but he fails to grade them under the DQS system, that could also be good practice for people starting with his system.
So now I feel that unless I buy the quickstart guide, and his upcoming cookbook I will not be fully able to benefit from this book.
