The program is based on one of the world's largest dietary studies and combines a higher protein intake with low-GI carbs, which has been proven to prevent weight regain 'creep'.

    Wasn't what I expected

    This book is well written and has good photo representation of the recipes, however I found the recipes to be unimaginative. Plus the portion sizes are unrealistic. Sure it's a book on healthy eating, diet and losing weight, but I would starve if I followed what is considered as a good portion size. I can't imagine anyone in my circle who would appreciate this book so I wouldn't recommend it.

      The title says " worlds best diet" but it actually says in the book its more aimed at keeping weight off for the long term. I presume you would probably still lose weight using the general principles in the book. I bought this book because of a segment on a news show. They and the authors said the recipes contained in the book were for ordinary everyday people no strange or hard to find products.....just everyday food. This is not true. I don't keep rolled rye flakes, frozen edamame or cocoa nibs and neither do most people. The simpler recipes are just salad and meat.....I don't need a recipe for these. Overall i was disappointed because I bought it for some weight loss and recipe ideas but will probably never open this book again.

        At little too complex for an average person.
        I think calling it a diet was a mistake.
        It should have been World Best Healthy Eating.
        Calling it a diet makes the reader think of it as a chore, that it will be hard and that you will be thinking of food all the time.
        I bought this book for my son thinking it might be helpful, but did not give it to him.
