Review by teckelvik
This book was recommended by a physician, so I give it more credence than I usually give such books.In essence, the diet boils down to - eat no more than two servings of carbs at a meal. Eat a serving of protein with each serving of carbs. Eat enough vegetables to feel full, but not stuffed. Repeat in no less than 2 hours, up to 5 times a day. (There are some nuances, but that's the gist.)This makes sense, and fits well with other diet advice I've read. It also seems fairly simple to implement.
