There is no evidence that specific foods (outside of the ones we all know- protein, spicy foods, caffeine, and green tea) boost metabolism, and even those have a minimal effect, so don't hang your hat on the idea of using them to loose lots of weight.
Now, some foods are better than others- More nutritious, higher fiber, etc. The book seems to restrict a lot of foods, which I never consider to be a good sign. Should you eat more fruits and vegetables, less processed foods, and fewer (refined) carbs? Sure. But the foods restrictions and the very low calorie nature of what I have read of it... Seems more fad than anything.
A good rule of thumb is- Can you live this way for the rest of your life? If not, then it is probably not the eating plan for you.
