Basically, avoid simple sugars, watch portions, exercise. Use Omega-3 fatty acids, use spices.
The Metabolic Typing Test reveals that most people eat too many simple sugars--this is not news. In this book's plan, each person has a zone where they feel balanced regarding carbs/proteins/fats.
Most people have ratios from 80/10/10 (The 80/10/10 Diet), to 40/30/30 (The Zone Diet), to 50/20/30 to 65/15/20 or whatever. Any person can discover his/her own zone by using a free calorie/protein/fat/carb tracking program found online, you don't need this book.
Foods that Burn Fat can be found anywhere on the internet: green tea, broccoli, oats, high protein & low-fat foods, etc.
More hype is a 14 days to a sexy body that includes periodic fasting, so there is hype, no doubt.
Here are the titles of the e-books/chapters:
*A 41 page "Quick Start Guide"
*A 100 page Diet Solution Manual
*The Diet Solution Metabolic Typing Test
*14 Days to a Sexy Body
*Done for You Meal Plans
*Foods that Kill Fat
*The Top 10 Most Common Nutrition Mistakes
If you are a total newcomer to losing weight, you might like it. If you have done your homework, stay away.
Bottom line, the Good and the BAD:
Good: encourages clean eating, cut's out gluten, easy read, if followed will improve your health
BAD: not well documented/cited, overpriced, info can be found other places, a lot of holes in the fabric so to speak
What I would suggest instead: paleo blogs, books by Christ Powell, Wellnessmama.com, elanaspantry.com...
