The goal of Dr. Barnard is to steer everyone toward a vegan diet. If that is not your intention, best not to pick up this book. The changes are far-reaching, and radically different than the SAD (Standard American Diet).

Defeated My Sugar Addiction in 3 Weeks

I am hypoglycemic and historically prone to lots of yeast infections and bladder infections. After a mere three weeks of following the advice in this book, my sugar cravings are GONE. I can now walk through the candy aisle at the supermarket and genuinely have no desire for the candy. I can see the pint of Cherry Garcia beckoning through the grocery freezer door, and feel nothing. I could take it or leave it, and even if I took it home, I couldn’t eat the whole thing at gunpoint. Honestly.

I recommend this book to anyone who is starting to feel …

I ordered this book a long time ago and just never got around to reading it until recently. Boy, I wish I had read it earlier. After developing a number of health conditions (e.g.,joint pains, acid reflux, sleeping difficulties, chronic tiredness, frequent UTIs), I happened to read this book and started following the most of the advice given by Neal D. Barnard. It has made a real difference in the way I feel. I recommend this book to anyone who is starting to feel old beyond his/her age. I would have given it 5 stars but I felt it was could have had more suggestions for those who lead a busy life and don’t have time to spend so much time in the kitchen. I didn’t follow the advice completely, “falling off the wagon”, so to speak, on special occasions, but the modifications I made to my eating habits still helped so much.

This book hit home for me

I’ve always struggled with sugary treat addiction! Cakes, cookies, ice cream and chocolate goodies. Not eating because I was hungry but for entertainment instead. I would trick myself into thinking I could have just a couple of cookies or one piece of cake and work it off later . . . . three cookies turned into a dozen. A piece of cake turned into half a cake. Then I didn’t feel like working out later but instead have some more cake or make more cookies. Spiral down from there . . . . till I gained 20-25 lbs and had to buy new pants. After a few months I would feel disgusted with myself and go on a diet and work out obsessively until I lost some weight. Then the cycle would start again. Now that I’ve lost a few lbs I can have some cookies again. Aaaaahhh!!!!!! NO!!! What I learned in this book is how these things effect the brain and it’s nothing to do with will power. Why tease myself with trying to have just a little of a treat which affected my body like a drug? Don’t eat it at all and you won’t crave it! I have been eating all the fruits, vegetables and complex carbs I want and feel full and satisfied. And, losing weight! It is so easy to maintain and lose weight just by not eating those sugary treats at all. It’s like a weight has lifted from my shoulders. Especially when I think about how those foods made me feel after eating them. Guilty as hell and depressed only to eat more of it and continue the vicious cycle. This book has helped me tremendously and also provides some great recipes in the back!

I cannot recommend this book highly enough

This low rating is not because of the books content. It is great. However it is due to my kindle version. I got to a certain point in the book and the section just keeps repeating over and over. I can go no farther in the book. I am very disappointed. I have never had a problem with my kindle like this. I don’t know what to do.

I have read this book and tried this diet and found it works for me. I am a sugaraholic and by eating high fiber whole grain plant based foods I have found my weight and size drops, my cravings disappear, I feel more energetic, AND I can literally gorge on these type foods and not gain weight, feel bloated or drowsy later. For example, the other day I stuffed myself on thawed frozen blueberries and a type of artisan bread called Muslix bread. These high fiber whole foods satisfies me in the exact way a candy bar satisfies me, but without feeling unhealthy and sleepy after, and I feel energetic, alert, and am losing weight in spite of eating this way. There are foods that taste great and are unhealthy and fattening, and there are foods that taste great and make you healthy. This book is all about finding good health and a healthy weight and still enjoying food while overcoming cravings. The research Dr Barnard has done using Narcan to block endorphins causing subjects to lose their cravings for certain foods like meat and sugar is especially revealing.

Recommended by my nutritionist (Julieanna Hever) this book TRULY helped me bridge to a Whole Food Plant Based diet but MORE IMPORTANTLY to end the struggle in compulsion/mini addiction to ice cream/chocolate/dairy.

This book clearly explains in laymans terms the physiological effect certain foods have on the body. I had dabbled a bit trying to be a vegetarian for a few years but wasn’t successful until I read Dr. Barnard’s book. I started a vegan lifestyle on Aug 1, 2003 and the weight has just peeled away. I went from being exhausted and miserable to having enough energy to start a running program. I feel so good. And it has been so easy. I don’t feel deprived, I don’t crave bad foods anymore. My skin looks better. I’ve lost 15 pounds in six weeks and am still losing. It is nothing short of amazing and something I am positive I can sustain for the rest of my life. It also feels good to know I am making a small contribution to a healthier planet by not consuming animals. I plan on giving this book to my friends and family for Christmas.
