My taste vary. I love a good, blood stained horror, but also a well written kids story. Lots of Sci-Fi, but also Hist. Fiction. No boring!!!
If your spouse leaves you it is because you eat too much wheat. If a war starts in Africa it is because you eat too much wheat. Ok that is an exaggeration. The first 98% of this book is spent telling you all the health problems caused by wheat. They run the gambit of diabetes, hair loss, cataracts, wrinkles dowager's humps, aging, intestinal, obesity, bone density, brain disorders, pimples, rashes, psoriasis, several skin diseases, impotency and etc.
Doc, you had me at big belly. I just wanted to know how to get rid of this thing. After telling you what wheat causes, then he tells you how easy his diet is. (NOT) Then as an after thought you are told his diet, what to eat and what not to eat. It is eat raw vegetables, eggs, meat and cheeses. Also nuts and oils. Don't eat everything else, Don't eat out, don't eat prepackaged. You need to learn how to cook. This part all goes by pretty fast. Listening on audible, you will need to rewind and rewind if you are trying to write it all down and when going back it is easy to confuse don't eat with eat. He is fairly confusing on oats. This was confusing to me, because a couple of years ago I was on a diet by Jackie Warner, which told you not to eat sugar. On that diet she loved Oatmeal. I lost ten of those hard to lose pounds with that diet. I ordered the hardback copy which came in the mail yesterday.
So my wife and I have been on the diet one week. Believe me you can not do this without your spouses involvement. We both work lots of hours, so this took co-operation between the two of us concerning dinner. We went to the farmers market and bought vegetables, mushrooms, buffalo meat, eggs, etc. That was a fun experience. Who ever got home first cooked dinner. I stopped eating oatmeal for breakfast. I have a terrible sugar habit and still had some dark chocolate raisins to get rid of. Raisins are not good for you, they cause a sugar peak. Dark chocolate is only good in the high cocoa range. Most dark chocolate is chocolate flavored sugar. With the exception of a few hand fulls of these raisins a day I stuck to the diet. It was actually fun, but not easy. It takes time and planning. My wife is a long distance biker and must carb up for that and even Dr. Davis agrees with that. Last night we went to a pizza joint. I was going to go off the diet for one night and have pizza. They had a gluten free pizza, so I order that. It tasted all right, not as good as the regular, but I can live with it.
After one week I have lost three pounds. At one point I had actually lost six pounds, but three of them came back. My wife has lost about the same.
With the exception of doing away with whole wheat, this diet is pretty much the same as most others.
The doctor says you will not get hungry on his diet. On the first week I found some days where I was hungry all day. Now that just may have been my mind which is used to grazing all day, I don't know. When hungry I did find that a couple handfuls of almonds helped.
In a couple of months I will review, Venice A. Fulton's Six Weeks to OMG, in that review I will update you on my progress with this diet.
This is a mixture of Six Weeks to OMG and The Hardness Factor. You should lift heavy weights, don't eat processed foods, don't drink beer, don't work out too hard. I found the book motivating and he does have you take two pills (D3 and fish oil), but he stresses that most of the pills on the market are a waste of time and money.
Even though I have heard 90% of this before, if I can improve my health, by gaining one bit of information I didn't have before, then the small cost of this book it is worth it.
I admit that there was nothing here that I had not heard before, but there were some new things my wife had not heard. We listened together which is a big help. More then anything it motivated me to do the things I knew I needed to be doing. I think I have to listen to information like this about every six months so I will stay on the straight and narrow. We listened about three weeks ago and I have lost over five pounds. There were some back sliding on the weekends, Poker night, family over etc.
I like this because it is short and to the point. You should get it, the only thing you got to lose is pounds.
