Tired of looking at the new, fat me in the mirror I decided to try the diet and hire a personal trainer.
I stuck with the personal trainer for 6 weeks - and with the diet for three weeks. The net result (working out three times per week for 1 hour) was a loss of 12lbs of body fat and a gain of 6lbs of muscle. Most of that progress did occur during the initial 3 weeks when I adhered to the diet.
Now, I'd have preferred to have stayed on the diet the entire time but that's a real challenge, even for someone accustomed to eating raw. There were items that I simply don't enjoy eating that you're required / encouraged to eat a ton of. Essentially Dr. Graham cuts out all fats (which I now strongly disagree with) and consuming adequate calories by eating enough tomatoes or bananas or watermelon or lettuce to achieve the adequate calorie goal. That's a lot of lettuce! As much as I enjoy watermelon it's a challenge to start the day by eating it until you can't stand to eat another bite, and then eating some more.
Crazy as it may sound, I'd try this diet again. I do believe it produced results in the form of weight loss and muscle gain. And after the first few transition days my energy was abundant. But personally, I can't imagine living this diet long-term unless I lived in a tropical paradise.
Some of the info in this book was similar to what was in 80/10/10, but this one offered more info in other areas not covered in 80/10/10 and was a real eye-opener. It's not just for athletes, but for anyone looking to attain the best health possible. Well worth reading!
Thank you Dr. Graham!
Thank yourself after buying such an inexpensive and indispensable guide for getting fit and healthy!
As I see it - this is a complementary book for everyone who seeks healthy life.
