As they say, knowledge is power!" This book gives an interesting perspective for a different approach on the weight loss quest. I like how thorough their explanations are on the various weight loss topics, and since diets are now lifelong eating plans...this is a good alternative to consider.

If you are a vegetarian and need to watch your carbs, this is the book for you. The recipes are very easy to follow and make and--believe it or not--taste good. The downside is that to start the diet, you need to purchase all of the cheeses, nuts, veggies, spices, soy products, vitamins, etc. and it's expensive (about $400 if you don't have anything). But if you are committed to this, it will work and many of the items purchased do last, so it is a big financial hit in the beginning, then it gets better. You have to weigh (no pun intended) the pros and cons financially. But as I said, it does work, taste good and you will get the results you need. Hope this helps.

Stayed on the diet for 7 days and lost 4 lbs. I only need to lose 8-10 lbs. Diet says you won't get hungry but I did, so I ate extra snacks. The shakes that you drink tasted good and are filling. I tried a couple of the recipes and they were good. I will try this diet again after Christmas. I really started this diet at the wrong time of year. Book is easy to read and to understand.

The Makers Diet Revolution, the 10 Day Diet to lose weight and detoxify your body, mind and spirit by Jordan Rubin The author Jordan Rubin wrote this book and The Maker Diet after becoming very sick with Crohns disease. The book is divided into two parts. The first is CLEASING YOUR BODY and the spiritual benefits of fasting. He teaches the importance of water, raw fruit, veggies, nuts and seeds, and their health benefits. The second part is BUILDING YOUR BODY, by rebuilding and restoring your bodys internal ecosystem. We learn the powerful health agents found in herbs and spices, how electrolytes found in minerals help our body to function properly. We are even provided with recipes, list of food good to eat and which to avoid. I really enjoyed how he backs his diet with scriptures and biblical teachings. I would recommend this book for anyone looking to change their lives, lose weight and become healthier in the mind, body and spirit. I give this book 4 stars for being both educational and spiritual. I want to thank the author Jordan Rubin, publisher and The Book Club Network Inc for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

I purchased the Extreme Fat Smash Diet as well as the Fat Smash Diet. Fast delivery and books arrived in great shape. I love the way the book is written - barney style. I also love the fact that you can switch a number of the meals around. I am sold. Portion control and exercise WILL make you lose weight!

I originally bought this book for myself and have now bought it for many family and friends. It goes really well with the cookbook, "Power Foods" although the cookbook is not as hard core as the Fuhrman diet- I do modify the recipes a bit to keep them really healthy. Hopefully you will read it and change your life for the better.

This book is meant to be for someone who has already been on the Fat Smash Diet so I was a bit disappointed. I now have to get the other book to try that one first. But it seems like a diet worth looking into..

Better deal than amazon or barnes and noble. Love love love Rocco Dispirito. Great book for people wanting to create healthier versions of their favorite foods, definitely doesnt feel like a diet book.

This book uses cognitive psychology to help you lose weight. Cognitive psychology is based on the concept that the way you think affects how you feel and what you do. Cognitive therapy, then, helps you identify your self-defeating thinking and helps you respond to it so you can feel better and behave in helpful ways. Instead of leading you step-by-step through a diet plan, this book addresses the psychology behind why you can't get yourself to follow one and lose weight. In this book, you pick the diet (and an alternative as a back up), and the book helps you follow it. The set-up of the book is a six-week plan. Week 1 is laying the groundwork, where you pick 2 diets. Week 2 is getting prepared to diet, Week 3 is starting the diet, Week 4 looks into responding to sabotaging thoughts, Week 5 is about overcoming challenges, such as staying in control when you go out to eat, and Week 6 is fine tuning things. All-in-all, I'd have to say that its a great resource to address the psycholgical side of eating. There's no magic to it, just a little looking inside yourself and addressing any barriers you have that may be holding you back. Readers may also enjoy "The Sixty-Second Motivator" to address motivation issues as well.

This is an interesting book with some good advice. This diet doesn't appear sustainable over the long run though.

I haven't used the journal yet but have looked it over. It appears to be exactly what the Mayo Book said it would be. It could be used with another diet but its best with the companion Mayo Clinic Diet book, also sold by Overstock. The Mayo clinic Diet is wonderful and is compatable with those who may be Type II diabetics..

This book is great for people wanting to begin a new diet. It is easy to follow and the weight comes off if you stick to the diet. I have allready passed it on to my friends. Finally, a diet that deals with the basic food groups and exercise --- where has it been all of my life!

Are you Ready is both a fitness self-help book, but it is so much more. Bob takes you to evaluating yourself so that this time the fitness, diet and exercise, will stick. It is so much more than just what we eat and how much we exercise. It is about the way we feel about ourselves, food, exercise, and fitness. Without the connection of the heart and mind, you won't find yourself sticking to any program.

This book is an excellent weight loss tool. Over the first week I lost 6 pounds. It is an easy read and very easy to follow.

This is a good book for varience in diet selections. This book gives ideas for meals. The only problem I see is that most meals require many ingredients and a lot of time to prepare. Would recommend this to someone that has time o prepare meals at length.

I was unsure about this purchase and I never thought I would be a person considering a vegan lifestyle but after reading Skinny Bitch and The Engine 2 Diet, how can you continue with normal eating habits? The books just make since and they offer tons of recipes and brand named items so you know what to look for when you go out shopping. I have been eating this way for 2 weeks and I haven't felt this good in years. I have more energy and feel light and healthier. I would recommend these books to anyone who can put up with a bit of foul language, mostly it is pretty amusing. I feel the books are well researched and I cannot wait to see what else is in store from these authors.

After reading the Digest Diet, I looked forward to seeing the cookbook. One of my first concerns was were there any repeated recipes in the new cookbook that the Digest Diet shared. I am happy to say there is not! There are 150 new recipes to help on your 21 day diet! The first part of the book gives reviews the important concepts of the Digest Diet. I liked this I didnt have to get my Digest Diet book out. One thing that impressed me is these recipes is encourage and explain the need for good fats in our diet. I am totally against the non-fat diet craze that has been around for so many years. All the recipes help you to incorporate and use the much needed good fats. Also included in the recipes are the foods 13 foods they refer to as Fat Releasers. This makes it so easy to prepare meals and eat the foods that are key in your weight loss. Suggestions for stocking your pantry, freezer, and kitchen are made so that you have everything you need to make meal preparation easy. While there are rules, there is also flexibility. There are helpful, multiple brand name suggestions for different foods throughout the book. I thought this was great because it makes finding what you need at the grocery store so easy! I was excited to see pages that help create your own snacks. There was a lot of variety and combinations! For those with allergies there is a table of suitable swaps for foods used in the recipes and also another table of non-dairy sources of calcium. Recipe categories are: Breakfasts Soups Main Dishes Salads Side Dishes Desserts Each category is divided into the phases of the diet: Fat Release, Fade Away, and Finish Strong, This way you can quickly locate the recipes available for the phase you are in. I like that in each and every recipe they listed the Fat Releasers that are in it. Not only for the information, but it also gives you a sense of accomplishment in your diet. Every time you eat you are being proactive in losing weight! I found the special menus included very useful. These menus are: Quick Fix Vegetarian Dairy Free Cooking for One On a Budget. These also are divided into the diet phases. The recipes are varied, tasty, and easy to prepare. The full page color pictures were wonderful in helping me choose what I want to fix. What I find so great and unique about the Digest Diet and Digest Diet Cookbook is how they have done everything to help you succeed in your weight loss goals. A cookbook you will want to own, even if you arent dieting and just want to eat healthy! I received this book free from FBS Pulishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255

I've been following the BFC plan for several months and am happy to say I've lost over 20 pounds and over 6 inches from my waist. Best of all, this isn't a "diet", its a program that helps you shift your eating habits for a healthier lifestyle - it's simple and sustainable. I've tried a lot of other diet programs, but they were too hard to maintain.But beyond the weight loss, I feel so much better in terms of energy. I was eating so much sugar in an average day that was hidden in foods I thought were healthy.The book distills all the key information from the program, and includes many recipies, all with color photo's. It also has a big section on good and bad food choices at the supermarket. It's a small investment in your health and your future!

This book is not for the faint of heart! When they say tough love diet advice...they mean it! It is a common sense approach with a lot of edgy humor. I found it an interesting read.
