I would not suggest following this. The cookbook you have might have some good recipes you can incorporate into a healthy way of eating

For example - the sweet potato burgers could make part of a great dinner when paired with other healthy foods.

As far as the actual diet part... steer clear

I would never suggest The Rice Diet. It is a restrictive weight loss program and uses a very low calorie approach. Very low calorie diets should only be used under close medical supervision.

It's a severely restrictive diet that really shouldn't be attempted without careful guidance of a medical professional. It starts as a very low calorie diet, and remains low calorie throughout. It's a semi-starvation diet that may be advisable if you are grossly obese and it is recommended by a doctor.

It's not sustainable long-term.

Web MD has a good, detailed article on it:

I have a cookbook for this diet. Has anyone ever followed this diet?
