as other reviewers have mentioned the products promoted such as the shakes and bars contain some of the very things you are supposed to avoid during the diet and i also didn't receive any of the bonus material promised.
this book and protocol seemed too good to be true, and definitely are. how great would it be to find a book that truly could approach hormone resetting and balancing from a scientific and qualified perspective- despite Sara's credentials, this falls short of even providing an informative, well written opinion... it is full of blanket statements and brief quotes that don't have any real merit or apply to what is being pushed. the casual and "i'm your friend" approach is fine but if that doesn't come with what's being promised it just seems like a creepy money hungry marketing scheme... and it's sad that so many "health experts" prey on people who could really use advice on how to fix what ails them...
i have 7 days+ re-introduction left and if something magical happens i will update my review but i highly doubt it will shift since i'm 2/3 in and haven't had any of the magical promised results.
I feel the diet is also very misleading. Dr. Gottfried gives you 7 resets that are supposed to last for 3 days each, but that's not exactly true. Reset 1 is meatless (estrogen reset); Reset 2 is sugar free (insulin); Reset 3 is fruitless (leptin); Reset 4 is caffeine free (cortisol); Reset 5 is Grain Free (thyroid); Reset 6 is dairy free (growth hormone); Reset 7 is toxin free (testosterone). The truth is you are eliminating red meat, alcohol, sugar, fruit, caffeine, grains, dairy and toxins for the entire 21 days. Take a look at the menu she gives you on day 1, the meatless menu:
1 cup lightly brewed tea
omelet made with three eggs
1/2 cup asparagus
1 cup cooked spinach
1 tbs coconut oil
Detox Shake made with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, The shake is made with her protein powder, her fibre, kale and MCT oil
1 cup chopped kale,
1 cup chopped bell peppers
1 ounce raw cashews
6 ounces wild-caught salmon
1 cup steamed broccoli
2 cups salad with 2 tbs oil and red wine vinegar
1 cup chopped artichoke hearts
1 cup chopped purple cabbage and 1/2 cup romaine lettuce
I rest my case. If you follow her suggested meal plan for each reset you are actually eliminating everything on day 1. All of the menu plans for each reset are similar, chicken or fish or eggs or a shake. You don't reintroduce any of the foods you eliminated until day 22. Reentry starts on day 22 and you are only supposed to reintroduce 1 food at a time every three days. The theory is you need to see how your body reacts to the food that had been eliminated. So it's not really a 21 day reset. It's a 42 day reset! I am so disappointed with the the book. It is absolutely nothing new. Please save your money.
I am nine days into this elimination diet.
I am 53 years old and for the past several years, it’s gotten harder and harder for me to lose weight.
If I look at the weight charts I’m only about five or 6 pounds overweight. I have lost weight on this elimination diet (which is the reason for 2 stars). Then again, I’m really not eating very much, because I have been plant-based since last August.
Last year, I decided to get educated by reading books written by doctors who have worked with people who have diseases and ailments that can cause early death, all of the books I read are about plant-based, including not eating any kind of oil. Personally, I have not been able to get rid of the oil, but that's a story for another day.
I tried choosing books, which were backed with as much scientific fact as possible, like "How Not To Die," By Dr. Greger who cites enough studies to have 134 pages of bibliography in the book. Studies showing pros and cons--several studies to each section in fact. Dr. Gottfried's book has 15 pages. I also did a ton of research on the internet.
I like to look at the studies, see who paid for them and try to choose a middle ground. And as a side note, Dr. Greger takes proceeds from book sales for his nonprofit organization. His nonprofit employs a team of researchers to constantly stay up on all the food-related studies out there. He also does not speak with a lot of bias about particular diets being what works, as the paleo is stated more than once in Dr. Gottfried's book.
The reason I chose this book here was it was written by a female doctor, who had hopefully experienced what I had in terms of food and hormones. I had hoped she had done as much research as was necessary to not just offhandedly quote people who are not in the medical profession or conducted studies as authorities. Unfortunately, some of the people mentioned are chiropractors, health mentors, and others...not that it is a problem at all, if you have the scientific data to back it up.
I am not a fan of the evangelism of taking certain foods grown out of the ground and making them problematic in total. I do not believe that from reading other evidence-based studies it is the entire truth.
Alas, there is so much conflicting evidence out there about what to eat and what not to eat it can make your head spin. It is why critical thinking comes in. Trying to derive from each resource some good information, which can lead to lifestyle changes you feel work for you.
I am starting to think it is a completely individual process, not all of our body chemistries are the same. I have to figure out a way to eat, which works best for my body. Another reason, I gave this 2 stars is it has made it clear--hidden sugar, basically processed food is my issue. I am finding through the elimination diet portion that weight started coming off when I omitted food with sugar in it (I already got rid of sweets last August). So, thank you for that! I already cook a lot, so now it will be for almost every meal as a lot of convenience food is chock full of sugar and other things, I would prefer not to ingest.
I will put grains back in my diet, as I do believe rice and other grains which are not processed are not bad. (again my opinion about my experience) The blue zones book which speaks to places where people live to be over 100 do eat grains, which aren't processed.
