I think it's someone, once again, profitting off sharing common sense. "Eat whole foods: real meats, veggies, fruits, healthy fats, nuts, seeds. Exercise/ Be active/ Move more. Watch portion sizes" At the same time, it adds in the concept of resistant starches in small amounts which I think is good to learn about.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

I assume you are wanting to learn how to include carbohydate containing foods in your diet in a healthy way. This book will give you just that.

I've never heard of it, but I did a quick google and found this review:

et-review


The one negative thing it had to say about it was this:

"Giancoli applauds the flexibility and basic plan. But she cautions the 1,200-calorie phase one-week detox plan may be too restrictive.

'Skip the first phase and jump right into the 1,600-calorie phase, because the promised six-pound weight loss is mostly fluids and lean tissue, which you donít want to lose,' Giancoli says."

I would agree, based on that; detoxes don't work anyway.

Sounds like this is a pretty sound plan, although it's pretty much what SP already teaches. It also sounds pretty much exactly like the Spark Solution, just without the catchy buzz words about carbs.

It's also unfortunate that it appears to be associated with Dr. Oz... that's not a good endorsement, although I guess even a broken clock reads the right time twice a day. emoticon
