Here's the manual on how to feed your body and make it run efficiently and with a happier outlook. I finally understand how to truly eliminate fatigue and cravings! The weight loss is just an added bonus. The explanations describing each body-type make it easy to understand not only your own body, but the cravings and weight problems loved ones.
I have recommended this book to many friends and relatives who are ALL finding success.
Here's an additional little tip - when making changes to your diet, try only one meal at a time for about a week. Example: Begin by changing your breakfast habits. Get successful at it for at least 5-7 days. Then try changing your lunch habits for 5-7 days. Then dinner. It's much less stressful to change things a little at a time. It also gives you time to develop eating strategies and menus.
Try it! You'll feel great....REALLY!

I first looked into this book after a friend shared a success story of another friend who had followed this diet plan. I liked that this plan was individualized for different people. I had purchased the "carbohydrate addicts" book that was on the Oprah Show, but I felt that it was a plan for only certain people - and definitely not for all the mass numbers of people who were buying it! And that proved true when she did her follow-up show and many of the people who followed the diet didn't lose any weight and some even gained weight! Dr. Abravenel's book is specific to the type of body you have and how your individual body processes and stores fat. He gives lots of instruction and information so you can determine exactly what body type you are and understand how your body type works. I discovered I am a "T-Type", and I started the "T-Type Weight Loss Plan" a week-and-a-half ago and I've already lost 10 pounds! And I am not hungry! In fact, I am eating way more on this plan than I have on other plans. I do have occasional cravings for the foods I am most susceptible to, but in time they will subside. He also shows you which exercises and supplements are best for your particular body type - and which diseases your body type is most prone to. And you don't have to spend money buying special food because you just eat regular everyday food. I have been so excited about this program that I have gotten eight other people doing it too! I highly recommend this book to everyone!

Hi my name is Alicia Vargas and I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 children and 1 granddaughter. I had never had an issue with weight. I quick smoking 3 1/2 years ago. Out of no where my weight started to increase I was 150 when I quit at about a size 9. I put weight on so fast I didn't know how to stop it. I have always been concience of what I eat but I could not stop the weight gain. I was so frustrated...I quit smoking to improve my health and the excess amount of weight I was carrying was causing me to be short of breath. 4 weeks ago my cousin gave me the book for my birthday. I said, to myself this is the last thing I am going to try. I have bought every weight loss pill, Atkins Diet, Drops in my water from plant extract, shakes and every exercise equipment that promised results in just 30 days. Only to get on the scale and still find myself at the same weight or more. Never did I feel satisfied and continued to crave carbs especially the week before my mentral cycle. I felt there was no hope I was dumed to be fat. I read the book, took the test, I am a Gonadal. I couldn't believe when I read the chapter pertaining to my body type. I felt like I was reading a horoscope. I read the plan for losing weight and begin the next day. I weighed in at 220 when I started and exactly 3 weeks after I went back to the my Chiropractor in absolute fear, as I did not want to stand on the scale. Closed my eyes to open them and find I had lost 17 1/2 pounds. I just stood there and cried in disbelief. Even better than losing the weight my energy level has sailed through the roof. I don't feel tired and sluggish anymore. My skin texture has changed. I had no cravings before or during my mentral cycle and my cramps were very light. I am on my 4th week now doing the last 5lb.Read more ›

I am so excited about this diet plan! I (like thousands of others) got caught up in the carbohydrate addicts diet plan that was on the Oprah Show. But I wondered how one single plan could work for everyone. When she had her follow-up show, half of the audience had lost weight, while the other half had gained - all while following the same diet. Now I know why! I also would see people that from the waist up they looked normal but from the waist down they were three times as big and I always wondered why some people looked like that. Now I know why! I also always wondered why my dad never really liked desserts or treats. I thought he was just weird. But now I know why! Our bodies are all different and respond to foods differently and put on fat differently - and so of course the same diet won't work for everyone. The trick is finding out what body type you are and how that body type responds to certain foods. Dr. Abravanel is very thorough and accurate in his book. He also goes into other areas besides diet, like exercise, supplements, stress, and health dangers. It's very well-rounded. He explains everything thoroughly and simply. I have lost 16 pounds the first month and I am truly not hungry. In fact, the first day I followed the plan I was so full that the next morning I could not bring myself to eat breakfast! I do have cravings for my "weakness foods", but they will subside as I continue to follow the plan and get my body back in balance. I feel that now I have the knowledge to conquer my weight - and it all makes so much sense. I recommend this book to anyone trying to lose weight or get more in balance physically.
