I picked up this book because it looked like a light, easy read, and I thought it would offer a good introduction to cleaning up my diet and getting free of wheat, gluten, and sugar. The light and easy part met my expectations, and I finished the book in a couple of sittings. The author was a little too fond of catch phrases and buzzwords for my liking, and it felt like I was reading one long magazine article, but I shouldn't complain, as I bought the book in part for the easy reading after all.

A positive of the book is that it offers up some tasty recipes and new ideas for meals strategies. There are also some useful tables with columns for "bad, better, and best" eating options, which are a convenient reference tool. The author also gives us a `14 day-kick start diet,' which I haven't followed and don't intend to. It's too restrictive in calories for me, and could cause me to rebel and relapse into a binge at some point. But for those with an iron will, the meals look tasty. And sure enough, he does cover the whys and hows of giving up wheat, gluten, and sugar in a broad if not deep manner. He also offers additional information on why stress makes us fat, and includes an easy exercise plan at the end of the book.

The reason I only gave the book 3 stars was because of the veracity of some the content, beginning with the author's opinions on microwaving. He makes the statement that "microwaves kill the goodness in food." This comment brought my reading to a halt. The author offers no evidence to substantiate this claim, nor did he point me in the direction of any scientific studies that have proven this. Indeed, there are no citations for this or any other of the emphatic statements he makes throughout the book.

I bought the Clean & Lean Diet book as a recommendation by a friend, but let's face it, who doesn't want to look like Elle McPherson (well maybe not if you're a boy or maybe you want to attract someone that looks like Elle). So off I go, book in hand, reading like a woman possessed because I am so excited to start my diet and lo & behold, 14 days in I can tell you that so many people have noticed a huge difference in my appearance its just amazing. I feel so much better for it as well. The first 14 days is the kick start program and you really do need to follow it to the letter. Once you have completed the detox part, you can then have one day a week where you have something a little naughty, as by then your body can deal with the toxins in more efficient ways. James likes to use everything organic, so just try to do the best you can as it helps with the detox process. Don't forget, this is a way of life, so unless you can commit to no gluten and no sugar, you should probably pass. I find the diet relatively easy, I just opt for clean foods as much as I can when eating out, salads, fish etc. The best thing about the diet is that you can still have oils (good ones) and things like avocado. There are many recipes included for inspiration. You have heaps more energy and because you feel so good, it makes you want to do more exercise. A win win as far as I am concerned, so it just adds to the benefits of a lifestyle change. Now that I am aware of what goes into many store concocted bakery goods and other products, it really makes me feel a little sick when I look at them. Not quite Elle but maybe something a little closer, that's all you can hope for!

I have been a fan of this system for years and I have purchased also the previous edition of this book (I also have the Flat Tummy Fast and the amazing Clean and Lean Recipes Book). Whilst the title makes reference to diet this is a lifestyle and not a counting calories exercise The system is based on the principle of cutting carbs, refined sugar, alcohol, processed food. The great thing about this system is that the author explains in detail the reason why these should be avoided and the (bad) effects their consumption has on your health.
There is a 14 days plan (different compared to the previous edition) to kick off with the system to get rid of toxins and new recipes. The section on exercises is the same as the previous edition, but with a different mix. If you are a fan of the Clean & Lean system this book is worth buying only if you want to try new recipes as I did not notice a great deal of difference compared to the previous edition. If you have never tried this system purchase this book (in this 2013 edition) and you will notice the difference just a few changes can make in your life and weight. This is not a fad like Tracy Anderson - actually exercising for 60 minuets everyday is bad for you!
I really like the style of the author, never patronising or arrogant. He is very supportive in his tone. And if this system works for Elle MacPherson and Hugh Grant also common mortals like us can get huge benefits with regards to our health!

* There are mistakes in the pages numbers relating to the exercises circuits. Also he mentions the 8 minutes workout that was present in the previous edition, but is not in this one (even if he mentions it). Looks a little bit rushed in this section.
