This review is from: Quick & Clean Diet: Lose The Weight, Feel Great, And Stay Lean For Life (Hardcover)
I have decided to never diet again but adapt the lifestyle of "eating clean". I bought this book along with another, more popular book on the market as I couldn't decide between the two. I have to say.. I love Dari's book! I liked the fact that she gave the concept, it was to the point. A lot of diet books just go on and on and take forever getting to the point of how to diet. I disagree with the other reviewer that says that this is nothing new if you know anything about clean eating. There are some nice recipes, tonight we just tried her flank steak marinade. Honestly.. this was by far the best marinade we have ever had! Absolutely delicious.. meat was incredibly tender and flavorful! I can't wait to try others!
This is a great book, but I've adapted it a little. I know she's out to tell people how to lose the most weight possible and is why so strict. But, I agree a little more with Tosca Reno's book in that you can have whole grains and still lose. So.. I have had whole grain brown rice.. will stay away from the starches for now.. I think a cross between the two added with Michael Pollan's book, Food Rules.. Michael Pollan made some good points. Bottom line.. eat food in it's natural state and don't eat it if a third grader couldn't pronounce it's ingredients. Good luck! If you want a book that gives you the concept without being too lecturing and to the point, along with some great recipes, then this is the book for you!

Did not read the book but saw her on Dr. Oz. She mis-lead the viewers by saying that "Liquid Aminos" has NO SALT. It contains a little less sodium ( which is basically salt ) then soy sauce. Read the labels. Not sure what her point was but it was not accurate!

a reader says:
The author of the book is correct. Bragg's liquid aminos has no added salt. The ingredients are soybeans and water. The saltiness comes from the concentrated naturally occuring sodium in the soybean. Yes, there are 160 mg of sodium in 1/2 teaspoon, but no actual salt is added. Sodium is not salt, sodium chloride is.
