Nothing spectacular... at least to me Apr 17, 2010
I didn't like the book at all. I will either give it to a friend or donate it to the local library.
THe I Can Do IT Diet Mar 30, 2010
The book was a disappointment. It gives lots of information on the glycemic index and how sugars affect the body. None of that was new material. The last 1/4 of the book is made up of questionnaires so that the reader can figure out if they are depressed, stressed, binge eaters etc. They are not in depth and not useful. I was hoping for a daily plan, recipes etc. There are very few and they recommend products such as fiber pills that the reader can purchase from a place in Florida. Is this just a commercial parading as a help book?.
Finally a diet for the real world. Mar 26, 2010
As someone that has struggled with her weight since my second pregnancy (and on down through this current, 7th pregnancy) I have bought and read a lot of books on dieting. I have tried a lot of diets. I have succeeded on some and failed on others. I have gleaned a lot out of some books and gained nothing but weight by reading others. Sometimes it feels like I'm stuck on a merry-go-round of dieting and diet books. I think I have finally found a way to get off the ride.
The "I Can Do This" Diet is the most helpful and resourceful diet book I have read. It is packed full of good information in easy to understand form that will actually make a difference in your health. The book is broken down into 4 sections. The 1st one is on Understanding Weight Gain and Weight Loss. The beauty of this section is that so many people are obsessed with getting the weight off, but they never stop to evaluate how they have been putting it on. This section takes a lot of different things that I have heard here and there and puts it all together (metabolism, glycemic index, carbs, protein, bad fats & good fats, beverages, portion sizes, etc...). This book is valuable if all you ever do is read the first section. The 2nd section is getting you ready to begin this particular program (or lifestyle change). And then section 3 breaks down the actual diet. Section 4 is What to do When Weight Loss Stalls and it has a lot of different quizzes that can help you figure out where your body may be letting you down. It's all good stuff, but I want to focus on the diet itself for a moment...
What I am excited about with this program is that it is very balanced, smart, healthy and easy. Some basic principles are... well, I would go into it but then you wouldn't need to read the book. Suffice it to say that after this baby is born I will be adapting this plan into my lifestyle. In the meantime I will be implementing small changes to start making a difference. I am very impressed by what I have read.
A definitely "doable" program Mar 24, 2010
This book is packed with good ideas and information that everyone should have without the usual diet-book delve into scientific jargon that one just skips over. Although there are the usual chapters on carbohydrates, proteins, and fats Dr. Colbert has talked less about the chemical makeup of the food type and more about how it works and what is good and bad about it. The chapters are short so if you feel you need to absorb the information before continuing on there is no overwhelming feeling of having to finish a 100 pages first. I found it interesting that he differentiates between glycemic index and glycemic load. His program is low glycemic load with the carb:protein:fat ratio of 40:30:30. Yes you can have carbs - low glycemic carbs. I think that is one of the things that makes this diet doable, there are no really "forbidden" foods other than junk foods. Also he has you eating every 3-3 1/2hours with a calorie range of about 1800 for women which is higher than most diets. He considers anything below your BMR to be putting your body into starvation mode which of course means you plateau out quickly and then gain again, a common problem with many low calorie diets. Although he seems to focus on organic vegetables and meats he does include many brand name suggestions. He also includes a section on bible verses that promote healthy eating and positive actions and thoughts though this is not a bible-study program. Well written, lots of information that is easily readable and food that is available for everyone.
Helpful book Mar 17, 2010
The book came quickly, well wrapped and in excellent condition. Much to digest in the book, but I am really finding out a lot of good information and gearing up to put it into action.
