I am about 35 pounds overweight and have struggled with joint pain for the past 5 years. I have tried everything since Celebrex was taken off the market and after being recommended this book by my sister, I can honestly say I finally found something that works! I have been on the diet for about 2 months and have lost 15 pounds already, which has done wonders for my pain- I don't have any! The recipes are also really good:)

I bought this book back in mid-August along with a couple others that promised to reduce or eliminate pain & inflammation. This is the one that worked for me. Yes, it is just a basic healthy eating & exercise plan, but I had no idea how much eating sugar and other refined starches was contributing to my pain. I had so much joint pain/inflammation that some mornings I could barely walk. After only 3 days of cutting out all sugar, breads, pasta, etc. I felt SO much better! It was amazing. I had no idea how much that nightly bowl of ice cream was affecting my well-being.

The book says that taking off even 5 pounds can help with pain - no matter what your starting weight. This diet will help you gradually get to a more healthy weight if you need to. Since starting this eating plan, without even realizing it, I took off over 30 pounds in about 4 months and now most days any joint pain is minor.

If you are a sugar-holic like I was and are worried about missing it, my experience has been that after being off sugar for just a few days, the thought of it was very unappealing. I look at most sweets and think, "Ugh." I do eat sugar, but in the form of fruit and now most fruits taste as satisfyingly sweet to me as refined sugar desserts used to. I broke down and allowed myself a small slice of reduced sugar pumpkin pie (my favorite) for Thanksgiving and it tasted really good, but I had no desire for more. Foods such as pasta, most breads, cereal, white potatoes and other starchy vegetables, white rice, & beef are pretty much off my menu.

Most nights I cook a different meal for the rest of the family, but I don't mind since I'm feeling so much better now.

I have purchased many diet books in the past, but Diet For A Pain Free Life is the one that I choose to follow from here on. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia, and just happened to see this book on the shelf while looking for another book. The recipes are easy and very good. I lost 6 lbs the first week I followed this diet. It is nutritionally superior to any other plan I have seen, with good tips on stretching and exercise also

I finally found a way to control my knee pain following the diet in this book. It is easy to make these changes and I enjoyed the variety. This was fun to try and I am hooked!

If everyone followed the advice in this book, we would all be much healthier and health care costs would decrease dramatically. The author outlines 4 keys to reducing pain and improving general health. The first, of course, is to lose weight -- even a small amount makes a difference. Other steps involve exercise, sleep and stress. The eating plan makes complete sense and can be followed easily, i.e., no hard-to-find foods and no elimination of complete food groups. It's basically an anti-inflammation diet plan which is recommended by many doctors (and many book writers.) I've been following the diet recommendations for a few weeks, mainly eliminating refined foods, and I've lost 1-2 pounds per week. This diet could be maintained for life in contrast to diets that are so restrictive that you can't wait to go OFF the diet - and return to former eating habits. I am thinking of buying this book for several friends and family members who would greatly benefit from this lifestyle.

I think it is easy to understand. Not long winded, not much medical jargon. The recipes are not Julia Child but are full of spices and seasonings and fresh herbs. And if you check out the blog by their chef on the book website she does a great job of outlining easy to prepare and fun recipes. Some area pretty fancy in fact.
It's mostly a low glycemic Mediterranean diet. You do get to eat fat as I found from better sources though, like olive oil and fish. I can see how this diet would fill you up and if you lost some weight would help you get more active to continue losing. All in all a diet is a change in lifestyle and I really liked the way the recipes looked and more so in the author's blog site. For those interested in reading the book I recommend it, it's not fancy and that is just fine with me. The blog is at [..]/blog so check it out. Get the book because it does run you through the 21 days in seperate eating regimes until you kind of get to where you can just stick with the rules. Hope this helped.

It really works and you want to stay on it because you don't want to go back to feeling stiff and sore all the time.

I was amazed that I paid over $40 for this old paperback book (2006), but the plan makes a lot of sense. I have been meatless for a month now; but because of my own personal health problems at this time, have had a very difficult time with the two-week jump-start plan (Step 1). I keep gaining weight instead of losing weight. (I strongly suspect that my thyroid problem is being under-treated by my new doctor.) My husband has decided to try this along with me beginning today. Since he likes to cook, I suspect I might be more successful on this "together" venture. The recipes have some obvious errors, e.g., 1/2 cup of sugar in one of them makes no sense at all. Use your common sense on those. Also, the chili recipe, which was delicious, had no ingredient listed for spicing it up. Since capsaicin is noted for easing pain, we assumed that to be another error. Basically, if you have the time to read the book and follow the plan pretty religiously, it sounds like it would work for most people. The author gives a good, sensible new way of eating along with some daily exercises that most of us can easily perform.
