I have been on this diet for 6 days so far. This book starts you out with a 4-day "cleanse." No lemon water and pepper here, folks; you actually get real food for this one. She lays out a very strict meal plan - the same breakfast every day, same snacks everyday, and so on. Also, you're supposed to drink 8 oz of lemon juice mixed into 8 glasses of water everyday. I would HIGHLY advise investing in some sort of juicer. When I bought 21 lemons at the grocery store for my first week on this diet, the cashier looked at me like she knew what I was up to... Oh, she knew.
After four days, you won't want to look at another romaine salad, cinnamon-loaded granny smith apple, or basil eggs ever again. But then you step on the scale. I'll admit that I was a bit lazy about the exercise on these 4 days, and I only started out slightly above 150 lbs to begin with (I'm 5'6", btw), but I still lost 5.2 lbs during this time. Granted, a good chunk of that was probably water weight, but it's still quite motivating. I'll be happy to update my review as I progress along on this diet.
So even as "Wary," the above referenced reviewer, pointed out, this is probably a pretty average diet as diet books go. However, I think it's kind of neat to count antioxidants and strive for a large number (30,000 a day!) as opposed to sitting around thinking about how you only have 100 calories or 1 point or whatever left for the day.Read more ›
One pet peeve--she mentions some foods in certain chapters and then doesn't include them on the ORAC point chart. The charts are spread out through the book and I have to keep flipping around to find the ORAC points for certain foods. The chart from the website is also not consistent with the charts in the book (such as different serving sizes), which is irritating. The author mentions several times that coffee is very high in antioxidants but doesn't give the readers how many ORAC points are in a cup of coffee.
I never intended to do the cleanse nor follow her regimented eating plan; rather, my intent was to apply the principles to my eating.Read more ›
Other than that its a decent book about healthy eating but besides the antioxidants spin (and it is a good place to get information about the positive effects certain high antioxidant foods have on your body) it doesn't provide much information that isn't already readily available.
The argument for eating more antioxidants is valid, but I can't tell if I'm losing weight because I'm eating more antioxidants (I doubt it) or because I'm eating less than 1,000 calories a day (probably).
Overall, this diet will help you lose weight and may help you change the way you look at some foods.
