For those familiar with Dr. Barnard’s other books, this one repeats many facts … but enhances them with updates to the scientific data, along with personal stories of people who have overcome their cheese addictions to improve their health. There are many new recipes here: cashew Parmesan, Spinach-Sweet Potato Lasagna, Mac ’n Trees, to name a few. Also, for those interested in the Elimination Diet described in Dr. Barnard's 1998 Book ‘Foods that Fight Pain', there is an updated list of Common Pain Trigger Foods.
My own experience as a Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian (one who ate eggs and dairy): in 15 years of this style vegetarianism, I never lost any weight. But when I dropped the dairy (& eggs), I lost nearly 10 lbs in 3 weeks. (I wasn’t even TRYING to lose weight!) This experience convinced me that ditching cheese & dairy foods could be very rewarding for those who ARE trying to lose weight. I definitely recommend trying Dr. Barnard’s 3-week 'Test Drive’. You can’t go wrong with a test Diet … and if you decide to stick with the diet, you can reap the benefits of long-term good health.
But it gives enough scientific evidence and proof why we are addicted to cheese and what it is doing to our bodies.
It is well worth the money in order to aid our overall health for now and into the future.
