    Anyone done this? I skimmed through the book a while ago at the bookstore, and it seemed pretty decent. My roommate's friend said that he lost 20 lbs on it (he was skinnyfat to begin with, now he's just skinny). Anyone get results with it? :dunno:


    I would like to try it for a while and am hoping someone may help me find an e-book copy of it as well. :x:

    if you haven't even heard of it, i'd say please keep your comments to a minimum. Its basically a diet thats centered around 13 "power" foods.

    Almonds
    Beans
    Spinach

    Dairy
    Instant oatmeal
    Eggs
    Turkey

    Peanut butter
    Olive oil
    Whole Grains
    Extra protein powder
    Raspberries

    get it? Supposedly eating these foods, keeping your diet at this within reason, and doing light resistance workout a few times a week with cardio on off days you'll be in better shape. I read the book and found it to be very informative on how my body works, and how dieting works. Its a very informative book for beginners IMO.

    Of course since it was written by Men's Health it has to suck according to some posters in here. But as i stated in a previous post, everything seems to change weekly so who the hell knows.

    I prefer the "eat less exercise more" diet.

    Yeah, I remembered that it centered around some specific foods, and they also mention very little about exercising to lose fat - all diet.

    I'm pretty clueless when it comes to diet and was looking for a good starting point.
