If you really want to lose weight (in a healthy way) this is the book!,
This review is from: The Reality Diet: Lose the Pounds for Good with a Cardiologist's Simple, Healthy, Proven Plan (Hardcover)
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. You will find that it will be the best money you've ever spent to accomplish a lifetime of pleasure for you and your loved ones. Let's be real about it. If you improve your health, others around you want to do the same and you increase your chances of living a longer more rewarding life (mentally and physically). And I would just like to add that if you are saying, "well I am 40, 50, 60 years old and it is too late ..." again I am going to use the phrase "let's be real" or in this case "get real". It is never too late to live a healthier lifestyle. Enjoy the book and enjoy your life! It is truly the best and easiest "diet plan" (I almost feel bad calling it a diet because it really is much more) I have ever come across in my entire life.
