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.Read more ›
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.
