This book has been on my shelf for too long. I put off reading it because I hate diet books. They generally have the same pattern: cite some studies that may or may not be completely relevant, share some anecdotes of how it worked on some people, a description of the plan and then 200 pages of filler. This one was no different.
The meat of the information in this book can be fit on an index card.
Eat at least one food from each of 8 categories everday.
That is it. There are some decently interesting studies cited in the book that may or may not be relevant. I am going to give the diet a try and I will report back in a couple months to see how I am doing.
I can’t recommend reading this book. If you are interested in intermittent fasting, check out the different studies done123 and if they seem convincing to you follow the instructions I gave above. Everything else in the book is filler. Save your $6.
