    4-0 out of 5 stars On day 5 of Phase I
    I started on Monday.After two days of bad headaches I did drink decaf (one cup a day) and my headache instantly went away.I figured if I can't drink my wine every night, I'll compromise with the decaf as I'm not putting any creamer or sugar, just sugar substitute in it.I too wish he listed more vegetables.Can you have sugar free snacks?
    3-0 out of 5 stars good plan, flimsy read.
    I read a lot of reviews stating that Dr. Ian's book lacks a lot of the scientific data to support his diet. I decided to give it a chance anyway--and the reviewers were right. The plan seems pretty good, even if a little rough in the beginning. I like the variety of foods you can eat and also the fact that he acknowledges the importance of exercise.
    5-0 out of 5 stars OK Lets See
    Today is my first day of the Phase 1 detox....whew it takes willpower and discipline; something you need if you are going to attempt to lose weight using any plan!Some of the reviews I have read about the book don't seem accurate to me, but we see things through differently.I see this as a way to get rid of unhealthy eating habits, make a change and then incorporate some of the foods that aren't so good for me in moderation, not every day!

    3-0 out of 5 stars nothing simple about it
    Once again we are being duped with the misleading description "simple". This book has what are probably very good diet/lifestyle adjustments to help you lose weight and detoxify our systems. Dr. Hyman is no doubt sincere and has clearly done his homework but to imply that this is a "Simple" program is "simply" not true. The first half of the book explains how our modern diet is poisoning our systems and causing us to gain weight ad nauseum. We get it. Why can't one of the diet Gurus come up with an eating plan that relies on foods that are both readily available in your average grocery store or produce stand instead of the stuff stocked by specialty stores and health food stores. Where does the average consumer locate "grass fed beef" and "free range chicken" on the way home from the office? Dr. Hyman this is partially why obesity is such a problem, most people in the real world don't have the time, or resources to track down all these things and they simply give up. Anyone could write a diet book with the assumption that we all have access and the ability to provide ourselves with the products you describe and suggest. It is simply lazy science to recommend these things. Want to impress us? Go into a typical grocery store with a typical budget and show us the shopping list.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surprised by negative comments
    I have read this book twice, once to just read it, twice to go back through and underline things I never wanted to forget, and now I am reading it again to get ready to put it into action.I am on the E-mail list for this doctor sending case studies of people that he has helped.I must say I am very impressed and wish all doctors could be like Dr. Hyman. He looks at the whole body to find the reasons for sickness. I am surprised by the reviews here that say this is the same old information we have heard before.I have read a lot of diet books and I learned so much in this book about other things that can effect your weight besides eating right and exercise. And if I had heard of something before, now it was explained in a way that I could understand. I felt good that a few things that I had started to believe where confirmed in this book.When trying to get to the bottom of why I am over weight, this very nice to have my thoughts validated.There was a couple reviews that sounded like the person had not even read the book.One said they expected to find out more about the glycemic index, saying they were felt cheated that there was no information, when in reality the theory of the glycemic index is out dated.We now need to pay attention to the glycemic "load" of what we are eating.If they had read the book they would have known that. Another person said that it is a vegetarian diet, which it is not. Just look at the recipes in the back of the book to know that. Please don't right a review if you have not read the book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not for those with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
    There are only 2 or 3 pages addressing hypoglycemia. The advertisements address blood sugar imbalances which I thought would include hypogylcemia.Many of the recommendations will not help those with hypoglycemia and may actually be detrimental.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
    This is an excellent book for those who are having energy problems and not losing weight. I am not a classic binge eater, but I did not have the energy to do almost anything. I have weight to lose and nothing I was doing was working. I am a couple weeks into this book and I am feeling better already. My body-type swelling has gone down, I actually am getting up and doing things, etc. I have lose 4 lbs so far. I haven't lost weight in 4 years! This is a solution that is working for me. Although I am not a fan of the alternate sugars out there, I am using Stevia.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Priceless
    Most people who give this book negative ratings are just plain ignorant or cheap morons. The guy has done a ton of research to bring us this kind of information and he risks his life to expose the scumbag ripoffs in the food and drug industry. This book just shows how we Americans are brainwashed, tamed sheep, swollowing what we're given. Most of American food is sick and the sickness passes onto people. The milk you drink is filled with pesticides and growth hormones and even though all the scientists will say it doesn't have any effect on people, they're lying, why?because they'll get sued. That's right, there is no freedom of speech, even doctors have to watch their mouth. The fact is that the growth hormones and pesticides do transform into your body. Just why do you think the Canadians refused to feed their cows growth hormones?because they know what the effects are but us Americans, we're ignorant and lazy and we don't care. That is our attitude.So here's a guy that sheds some truth on what's going on in the food/drug industry and there's still morons who will badmouth him for doing so or some idiots who thought they'll pick up this book and all their problems will be solved. It makes me mad that there's such people out there who can misinterpret a book so badly.The guy never says you should get off your prescription drugs or try natural remedies before consulting with your doctor, it is written on the very first pages for crying out loud yet people come on here and write ridiculous reviews.Again, these must be the lazy couch potatoes who think picking up a book will cure their illness. No, you need to get off your butt on this one. If you want to be spoonfed pills, continue with your local pharmacy. I could go on forever how great this book is but I'll just say, ignore all the idiotic negative reviews and get this book and follow what it says,it's probably the best thing you can do for yourself. It's worth it's weight in gold.

    What little information this book tells you about those "natural cures" are already common knowledge. It goes on and on, ad nauseum, about corruption. If you want more information about certain alleged cures, the book tells you to go to certain websites, and when you get there, you have to pay. It's like buying a cookbook that hardly has any recipes, and telling you that you have to go online and pay up front. What's the point of buying the book if it only has a few recipes? ... Read more

    This book shows you how to eat like a normal person and lose weight -- without dieting! The basic idea is that refined, high-carb foods cause weight gain, especially in the stomach. Even though nutrition experts insist you can't lose more weight in your stomach than elsewhere, I tried it and it works.

    I was turned off immediately after reading pages and pages of "I'm not a crook" testimony by the author--his explanation of his felony convictions--elaborations on why the FTC brought charges against him. I kept wondering, when does he get to the natural cures?Eventually, he mentions a few, scantly--then refers you to his website for more information.When you enter the website, it offers information on natural cures for an additional registration fee. Outrageous!This horse's track record speaks for itself.

    Many of Kevin's thoughts and ideas are what we know intuitively deep down inside.Money feeds greed which feeds corruption.The government falls into power and uses money to feed that power - the government as an entitiy does not have each individual's best interest at heart.American's are the most unhealthy nation in the world.We are like sheep to ads and the government and doctors.We as Americans need to realize that we are the government and doctor's customers. The money (which feeds the power) comes from our paychecks!!!

    I had very high hopes for this diet, especially since a friend recommended it. I did try it, and I lost 2-3 pounds - and promptly gained them back while still on the diet! I continued the diet, lost those few pounds again, and gained them right back again. I did everything the book said to, too. So after 4 weeks, I gave up.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Come into your body
    The proper approach to losing weight should encompass your whole life - your health, good mental/spiritual and psychological condition. The best approach is to change your whole lifestyle not just to kill your hunger with a spoon of olive oil. When you change your lifestyle, your common sense will guide you what and how much to eat. The more you come into your body the more your bad habits will lose their hold on you and eventually give you up. It will not feel like a struggle but it will feel natural and right.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read!
    Well worth a read. I've given away a lot of copies of the book to friends and family because it works.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm on day 9...
    And I'm not impressed.Never again!This has been torture.I'm more energetic when I wake up in the morning, but that's about the only positive.I admit I made some modifications: used reconstituted, bottled lemon juice, for two days I had just water, and one day apple cider.I'm going to keep going until day 10 just for the sense of accomplishment.Anyway, I've been trying to clear up my allergies and skin problems, and so far this has not seemed much help.I don't know, maybe it has helped but I don't realize it.Next I'm going to try using oxy-powder to cleanse the gunk from the colon in a simple, non-torturous way (just have to take some pills) and also do a series of gallbladder/liver flushes.My point is, the Master Cleanser is just one part of detox-ing: it is a kidney flush, but one would be well-advised to do a liver-gallbladder flush right afterwards.This book has helped many people, I'm sure, but so far my experience has told me that it's not for me.I'd only do this again as a last resort.Here are some helpful sites: curezone and [...].That's just my opinion.To all the people out there struggling with health problems, good luck, and don't give up, and don't let the conventional medical industry fool you into assuming there is no cure for whatever you have, and don't let irrational skeptics sway you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good program
    I did alot of research on this clense before i started and made a commitment to try it.I sort of eased into the diet by having 1 small meal a day consisting of organic spinach salad.On say 2 of the wean i experienced a terrible headache but i honestly believe that after 20 years of drinking pepsi with everything- this was simply caffeine withdrawl.Those who make it sound easy will fool you into failing.The lemonade will give you what you need, but after a lifetime of eating you will definately crave food.It will get easier but never easy.You have to commit yourself.I compare this to quitting smoking which is my next task.
    4-0 out of 5 stars How often do you take food for granted?
    I once heard on a health program that most of us have 'stuff' in us (in our intestines) that's at least two months old!Wouldn't that be great to remove all of that gunk residing in your intestines and toxins in other parts of your body?The Master Cleanse was a great way to do it for me.It was a bit challenging because I *love* food, and just not eating was such a foreign concept.But the drink is pretty tasty and I felt all of its cleansing effects.It's easy to tell that this book was written half a century ago, though the content is easy to digest and intriguing.The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it tries to convince the reader to stay away from animal and animal-derived foods once the cleanse is done, as if that's the only way to diet for life.He threw in a bunch of recipies for the blandest-sounding food, so only two-thirds of the book was useful to me.The main part of it, The Lemonade Diet, is the heart of the book and it's worth a whole lot more than $6.50. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Don't dismiss this book because a Hollywood celebrity wrote it.
    As it says in the forward, yes, the medical community should catch up with Suzanne Somers. Hormones are a complex subject, and the author Suzanne is wise in the way this book is written and how the content is presented. She asks the questions (what we all want to know but were afraid to ask), and gives you her opinion. But the book is in a question and answer format where the professionals are giving their answers. You may not want to do it Suzanne's way, but she's asked the right questions, and used her celebrity to bring attention to a very important topic - one that professionals and patients should be more aware of, and that major pharmaceutical companies wish you weren't.

    This is a great first book to read before entering in to perimenopause is possible. Easy to understand and helps soften the blow many women feel when told those dredded words "Your going into menopause" I tried other things on the market prempro made me swell up 60 lbs in two month. I was told I no longer needed a period..(don't let a doctor tell you that)it just speeds up the ride to menopause. I am becomming very knowledgeable about bioidentical hormones and shame on Ob/Gyn who don't know about them.after all they have been around the medical world since the 40s!! Drug companiest hate them becasue you can't patent them and they must be mixed in a special pharmacy called a compounding pharmacyI find myself educating Dr.s who don't seem very interested.. It is not easy to find the right combonation of homrones but when you do it's jackpot! You will feel great. If only we could educate Dr.s especially female Dr.s (they are going to be here too one day).everywomen should read ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars REQUIRED READING!!
    I just finished this book and must say it has had a profound effect on the way I look at health, nutrition and the information we are spoonfed on a daily basis.I will never again eat dairy and will always question where the latest and greatest research findings came from and who funded them!This book should be required reading for every single American person today!Why the information in this book is not front page news speaks volumes about the influence agricultural lobby groups have on government, science and the media.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Diet Ever
    I bought this book as I was advised to eat a healthier diet because of high cholestoral, and was told the Mediterranian Diet was the best diet to follow.I bought this book as an introductory offer to a book club, so thought I could not lose by the price I had to pay. So I bought it on a whim. Really not expecting alot from it. It is the most AMAZING food plan I have ever tried.The food is exceptional.I have told all my friends and family about it, and encourage them to try it.It is AWESOME.I have been following this plan for about a month and everything I have made is so delicious.I have not yet tried all the recipes, but cannot wait for the next book to come out and have pre-ordered it.I have 2 teenaged sons that although they know they are eating healthy, they absolutely love our new meals.They look forward to what is for dinner the next night because these meals have so much flavor. Even their friends "drop" by at meal time because the boys tell them about the great food I am making. They have even gotten involved with the preparation and admit, yes it is a little more work than popping a frozen pizza in the oven, but well worth the extra effort.I would rate this book 10 stars.Yes, i have lost unwanted pounds, but the motivation was feeling better and achieving better health.The weight loss has been a wonderful bonus.Who would have ever thought eating healthy would be so good

    4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoying the lifestyle
    From a converted "Atkins" fan, comes accolades on this approach to dieting.It does seem similar to Suzanne Sommer's Somersize. It gives you recipes, shopping list, and pull-out carry-along pages. It even recommends quicky on the go meals.I also was able to stock my freezer with lean cuisine spa meals (for less than $3 they are great for my busy lifestyle).I am enjoying eating pasta and bread again (whole wheat!!!).Kashi cereals(don't stand down-wind), and my favorite-strawberries are also mainstays on this diet.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent choice
    The Sonoma Diet was inspired by California's Sonoma County with its bounty, and offers up a weight loss plan based on flavorful meals. Yes, there are plenty of diet options in the market for the latest fads of low-carb and low-fat diets: The Sonoma Diet emphasizes whole grains and smarter combinations and also pairs dieting with a busy lifestyle - so there's no calorie counting, points systems, or measuring or weighing. An excellent choice which includes plenty of unusual recipes such as a Spicy Fruit Salsa or a Latin Spiced Pork Tenderloin.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This will change your life!
    As a nutritionist, I have often come across diet books, "health" books, and the like, and read most of them with a raised brow!I have to tell you that I could not put this book down!It makes so much sense!I have used the Fast Track One-Day Detox Diet with several clients and have seen dramatic results.If you are looking for a "real" solution to weight loss, this book will change your life!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fast Track got me on track
    I completed The Fast Track program last spring and was very happy with the results. I lost weight and felt better and cleaner inside-thus the `detox' effects.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing - but not in the way you might think...
    I bought this book with the hopes that it would help me lose the last few stubborn pounds.I'll admit that some of the author's recommendations seemed a little radical, but I was willing to give it a try. So I faithfully gave up caffeine, ate the prescibed foods and avoided sugar, wheat, etc. etc. in preparation for the one day fast.I can honestly say that the one day fast was one of the WORST experiences of my life. I was starving, miserable, exhausted, cranky, and did have a revalation - but not the one the author promised.I realized once and for all that to lose weight, you simply need to eat enough good food to give you energy and exercise more often - not eat cups of raw parsley, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and nutritional yeast(which is revolting).I did lose 1.5 pounds during the fast, which I gained back in exactly one day - clearly just water weight. The author cautions against the dangers of EVERYTHING: Saran wrap, microwaves, teflon, unorganic spinach, plastic containers, etc. etc. If you would like to give up any pleasure that enjoying a good dinner with friends might give you, then by all means follow this plan. Otherwise, don't be fooled by quick fixes - they just don't work. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you want to live- read!
    this book should not be read only be people who are obese and want to lose weight. this would also apply to those skinny people who can eat McD's and not gain an ounce.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This way of eating makes perfect sense!
    Bottom line, the more processed food and animal products that you eat, the more your health will suffer over time.Now you don't have to read the book.No, seriously, Dr Fuhrman dispels some of our long held beliefs in what our bodies need and crave.This is only a diet book in the sense that our diets should consist of a high concentration of certain types of foods....period.Not for a month or two and then back to the way we were eating before, but for the rest of our lives.Even if you incorporated some of the principles found in this book you would benefit.You will have to find a source of good quality fruits and veggies so you will enjoy eating them.I have been easing into this way of eating simply because I have a lot of things in my cupboards that I refuse to throw out and I have still lost 10 pounds in two weeks!And I'm only 20 pounds overweight.I'm not feeling starved either.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great information...
    This book has great information about all types of minerals and vitamins.I had a hard time putting the book down.I learned so much more about the minerals and vitamins and what doses you should be using.Now I know how much my body needs of certain vitamins.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Careful - this book isn't as neutral as the author claims it to be
    If you read this book you will be given lots of evidence and independent studies on the various benefits of vitamins and minerals.But while this book claims to be neutral and balanced on the good and bad of each vitamin, the author does leave out a variety of studies that have cast doubt on the benefits of "mega-doses" of various vitamins and minerals.

    Looking for a great book with gobs of information? Look no further! This book explains what each supplement is used for and the doses to take for specific diseases or just for optimal health. Perhaps the best thing about this book is that it lists information about adverse results if too much of a supplement is taken. I refer to this book time and time again. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Bill Phillips had been publishing bodybuilding magazines and marketing nutritional supplements for years when he had a weird revelation at a trade show: many of the most loyal and enthusiastic readers he had were totally out of shape. From that uncomfortable realization came his popular Physique Transformation Contest (top prize that first year: Phillips's own Lamborghini), now world famous, and this book.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Body for LifeFan
    I've been using BFL on and off for the past 3-years.If you stick with it it really works.Just tailor it to suit you.If your a woman you might want to substitute some of the excercises for those that are geared towards women.Awesome book for just getting started and workout junkies.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This "diet" works. Period.
    I have read many of the reviews for this book and I am dismayed at those people who have given it less than four stars. I seriously doubt they have actually followed through with the program. Pick up a copy of Men's Health magazine. They are preaching the same thing: high-protein, moderate carbohydrate meals, six times a day. EVERY issue gives specific recipes supporting this eating lifestyle. Heck, I picked up a Fortune magazine a few weeks ago, and they said the same thing: six small meals a day. Bill Phillips just figured it out before everyone else did.
