I've lost significant weight on its protocol (went from 28%MBI to 16% in 10weeks)
It's improved my sex life - cannot speak more highly of kettlebell swings for this and below
Mass gains were meh but still good for the total gym time
sleep manipulation didn't work for me but know it has for others
helped a ton with injury recovery
A friend of mine recommended this book after being on the diet. I was really skeptical about the claims in the book. I've got metabolic syndrome and I've been on statins for a long time. I'm by no means generally super fat or unhealthy in terms of diet or weight: 5'11 200 lbs and I don't eat a lot of junk. A large part of this is genetics.
I read the chapters of the book focused on the diet and honestly I rolled my eyes and said things like "no way" but I decided to give it a shot. I followed an even more simplified form of the book because I have 2 kids, my wife and I work fulltime and I'm always tired and have no time. I went to costco and bought 2 types of canned beans, stew meat, and frozen costco vegetables. I slow cooked the stew meat by literraly unloading the package into the slow cooker and salting it and letting it cook for 5 hours once a week. I put it in tupperware to keep for the week. For a meal I'd open a can of beans (used about half a can per-meal), pour out some frozen vegetables and microwave them for 3 minutes, then combine it all and heat for another minute. I'd have a meal ready in about 5 minutes. For breakfast I'd eat the same thing except I'd eat about half as much meat and add about 4 eggs. I used salt or sriracha chili paste for flavor.
I ate that 6 days a week, 3 times a day, and on Saturday I'd eat like an absolute pig. After 6 weeks I had my blood tested again and the results are better than when I was on statins. I also just generally felt better. I also lost like 15 pounds or so but that wasn't really my focus.
So the claims in the book about the effects on cholesterol are completely true as crazy as it sounds. Highly recommend this.
UPDATE: After 2.5 years, I lost 250 pounds. While no plan/lifestyle change is right for everyone, this worked very well for me.
