The last thing young readers need is another rallying cry for skinny at any cost--including their health, welfare, and life. Eating disorders don't just kill--they put people in hell. This book reads like the kind of pro-anorexia site banned on so many web platforms. Shame on the author. He's not just an idiot but a danger. I'd give this 0 stars if Amazon would let me.
As for the information and if it works or not...uhm...yeah...let me get back on that one. I will gladly come back and add to this review after a couple weeks of trying it out. I even stepped on the scale today which I do not normally do because it makes me crazy, but I did just so I could know without question if these tricks work. I do NOT lose weight easily nor quickly no matter how clean I eat, how little I eat or how much I work out. I intend to to follow it very closely...even the cold showers. I have already taken 2 cold-ish showers and am going to start adding ice to my bath because my water won't go totally cold and I believe in the power of the cold over my body's ability to increase it's metabolism. I also believe in skipping breakfast, because 1. I have NEVER been hungry upon waking. I used to vomit as a small child after my family insisted I eat...so I don't think forcing breakfast sound natural anyway. In other words, this method will fall neatly into what my body wants anyway. 2. I used to skip breakfast until recently when I started trying to lose weight...now I eat it because everyone says you must if want to lose weight...well guess what?? I have gained at least 10 more pounds since I began eating breakfast despite the fact I workout very hard at least 45 minutes a day. Hmmm.
He does NOT tell you to drink "POTS OF COFFEE" as one reviewer reported. He wants you to drink 2-4 cups black coffee or 200 mg caffeine and NO MORE THAN THAT and to not drink any coffee in the afternoon. He wants you to switch to water and green tea. See what I mean? I don't think we'll all become anorexics eating 3 meals a day either. Don't worry. And if you know you shouldn't have that much coffee, then don't. He even says that just because he feels this is what works, he knows that it's not right for EVERY person...just as any one diet or plan isn't right for everybody. It's only right if it's right for you. He repeats that many times.
There is much more to be learned from the book than just the shower and coffee and breakfast thing. There is more to be said about those methods too. There is a CONTEXT to these ideas that you aren't getting from this review nor other reviews. You really just have to set aside a couple evenings and read it yourself and decide for yourself. If you can't tell, I am really excited about this plan. I feel it has great potential to work for me and I, like all of you, am very picky about which plans I take seriously. This one just happens to suit me! :) P.S. I am a vegetarian to boot, so yes it can work for veggies too.
Peace and Love,
There is no specific meal plans and he does not explain any of the science behind weight gain, like hormonal imbalances. He suggests drinking coffee by the gallons, which any trainer or dietitian would tell you, is the WORST thing for your liver and will without a doubt slow down your metabolism because your liver has to filter out the caffeine instead of burn fat. If you want a more scientifically sound and medically backed book, PLEASE buy The 17 Day Diet Book By Dr. Michael Moreno OR Jackie Warner's book: This Is Why You're Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever.) I have seen tremendous results with both books. Especially The 17 Day Diet. Dr. Mike explains exactly what your body goes through during the 17 days and explains why you melt each pound.
I am not quick to believe what I feel is lies, but everything he explained was true and I lost exactly what he said I would lose. However, for any plan to work, you MUST commit to really changing your life and dealing with the emotional/mental reasons for why you overeat. Jackie Warner explains that it's not necessarily you, but because you are overloading your body with chemicals, sugars and fats, your body has adverse reactions to this and causes you to have cravings, become irritable, suffer from depression and other diseases, etc. OMG book explains NONE of this. You don't need a quick fix and you DON'T need this book. Focus on really changing your life and dealing with the real issue of why you are overeating. Both of these books will help you do that. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!
My only complaint about the book is its specifically written for young women. As a grown 6'ft 230 pound black man I felt kinda silly reading the book on NYC subways.
