I cannot say yet whether it works or not. I started the 21 day diet yesterday, and so far it is great. Willett could not have chosen a better person to work with on the book. Katzen's recipes are delicious and simple. I have looked forward to and utterly enjoyed all of the recipes. I know I am eating healthfully and nutritiously. This is the book I have been waiting for my whole life!
** Update: While it takes a lot of work to follow the 21 day diet to the letter because there is a lot of cooking involved, if you are able to do it, you will not be disappointed. The meals are DELICIOUS and very well planned. There is so much food, you will be shocked to see what happens to your body.I quickly became leaner and I have had an amazing amount of energy. Granted, each person is different, but for me, my body started to change immediately even when the scale hadn't shown much change.Read more ›
His collaborator Molly Katzen author of the 'Moosewood Cook Book' is a specialist in preparing and providing healthy vegetable rich meals. Her job in the book is to provide the recipes which will be in tune with the principles Dr. Willett elaborates.
These principles they label nine turning points. 1) Eat Lots of Vegetables and Fruits 2) Say Yes to Good Fats 3) Upgrade your carbohydrates 4) Choose healthy proteins 5)Stay hydrated 6) Drink Alcohol in moderation (optional) 7)Take a multavitamin every day 8)Move more 9) Eat mindfully all day long.
They also provide a method for assessing your 'body-score' of keeping tabs on how you are doing, and improving it. They also provide three different food regimens, each for a different purpose. A warm-up plan to get people going into proper eating, a twenty- one day more rapid weight- loss diet, and a long- term maintenance plan.
Part three of the book contains the recipes, and Part Four is what they call a Tool Kit, a shopping guide, and a guide on how to eat well through life's ups and downs.
It is hard for me to believe that most readers would know all the information and insight provided in this book. i.e. I think there must be something valuable for all ' conscious eaters' even if the very knowledgeable.
I am not a big maven on this subject but I have taken an interest in it for years. Nonetheless I learned many things from this book.Read more ›
Overall, a really great book-- would definitely recommend it for those looking to improve their health in a longterm way.
