I did buy the cookbook and there are some great looking recipes in there that I look forward to trying. There was an abbreviated recap but still longwinded explanation of the plan before the recipe section so that book is really all anyone would need to follow the plan. They also have a line of products you can purchase but arent necessary for the recipes. I don't have a problem with that but some may. If their baking mix helps produce a low carb bread that doesn't taste like crap I'd gladly buy it. Low carb cooking requires imagination and lots of trial and error so I appreciate anything that makes my life easier in that regard.
Bottom line is that I'd skip this book and go straight to the cookbook. I have no clue if their concept of separating fats and carbs is effective in and of itself but the plan focuses on low glycemic foods, healthy fats and an overall healthier approach to eating without having to count calories or points. Just wish the plan was presented in a more straight forward manner.
I didn't find it confusing, just followed the steps and... at 43 years old, I feel better than I did in my early 20's. I easily lost 53 pounds, and have been able to maintain my newfound health with ease - while eating absolutely delicious meals and NEVER feeling deprived! I can hike, cross-country with a 40+ pound pack, and not only live to tell about it... I FEEL GOOD! I could go on and on, but you want to hear about THIS book!
Over the last couple years, I have spent countless (and I do mean COUNTLESS) hours on the THM facebook forums. Membership has literally exploded to well over 100,000 people, just in one group alone! Of these members, most enjoyed the original book... but many found the 600+ pages overwhelming - even though the book included 200 pages of recipes! Some members even had their books divided - to keep the recipe section separate from the "plan" part of the book.
The authors heard and responded to the plea for a more concise version, with an easier layout... as well as for a completely separate recipe book! While I feel a "loyalty" to my original, exceptionally PRIZED copy of Trim Healthy Mama, I did order both new books. I AM SOOOO GLAD I DID!
Just. WOW! They have completely outdone themselves here. Truly.
The "Trim Healthy Mama Plan - the easy-does-it approach to vibrant health & a slim waistline" is absolutely amazing. This isn't just a "revision", this spells out the plan, while complimenting the previous book! The information contained here is definitely more concise, the layout is (in my opinion) much better; I can see this will be an easier read for many folks, and while it is more concise, it also contains updated information - making it my newest prize!
I will say that I thought I would be replacing my original with this one and the new recipe book... but I could never give up the book that brought me "here". I have me a "collection"... Oh yeah!
I ordered this book to get the details & was ready to get some fresh ideas into my normal routine. I should have stopped at the recipes.
First, the authors seem like people I would avoid at all costs in real life. The chatter throughout is incredibly annoying. Kind of like the "Hey, gurl! I spread rumors about you in high school but buy my MLM junk!" vibe. It's all "golly gee whiz" silliness. It comes across as false, not informal and personal.
Then, the plan or lack thereof. There are pages and pages of multi-paragraph descriptions of ingredients. I'm pretty sure by now I can identify okra, coconut, and gelatin, thanks. I skipped ahead to the suggested meal plans. Great! Except that almost every suggestion is a recipe found in the THM cookbook - which must be bought separately. So, even if I could take the sorority chatter, made it past all the filler, and was ready to jump into a new way of eating...too bad - go buy another book.
Suggestion - don't advertise this as a complete plan when there isn't a single suggested day that doesn't require buying another book. It's greedy and misleading.
I'd suggest the original (not meal delivery) South Beach Diet for a sustainable WOE without the corniness & weird, expensive, and unnecessary ingredients of THM. Oh, and that SBD has all the recipes you need.

The original book was chatty and conversational in style whereas this one is more the bare bones and the basics of the plan. If you don't have a lot of time but still want to do THM then this is the book for you! I do love both books equally, they both have something to offer.
THM is a very healthy way of eating. I have been strictly on plan now for 9 months now and I am down 51 lbs. That is a very healthy loss of just over 1 lbs a week. This is a safe, healing way to nourish your body and leads to healthy weight loss when your body is ready to let it go.
My only regret is that I bought this book on kindle and now I really want a hard copy of it to go with my original book on my kitchen shelves!
Wer der englischen Sprache mächtig ist, wird kaum Probleme beim Lesen haben.
Das Buch ist im großen und ganzen super geschrieben und liest sich toll!
Der Gedanke bei THM kommt der in Deutschland bekannten "Trennkost" sehr nahe und wie schon erwähnt, scheint diese Art der "Diät" wirklich zu funktionieren.
Es werden neben den basics auch einige Fallbeispiele genannt und erläutert was hätte besser gemacht werden können!
Was mir persönlich etwas zu viel wurde, war das ganze Gerede drum herum das immer "pearl chats:" angekündigt wurde... Außerdem kommen auf Grund der Fallbeispiele am Anfang und dann der basics im Anschluss sehr viele Wiederholungen vor!
