Reviews - What do customers think about My Big Fat Greek Diet: How a 467-Pound Physician Hit His Ideal Weight and How You Can Too?

Very Practical - not Preachy  Nov 5, 2009
I found the story of his journey a worthy read and the practical advice on all the various diets very beneficial. Overall the book was inspirational and is moving me to get busy on my own weight journey.
Fascinating read!  Jun 10, 2009
This Dr. shares his story of huge weight loss while visiting every major league baseball park across America. I wish he was my doctor! He's funny. compassionate and listens to his patients.
My Big Fat Greek Diet  Apr 26, 2009
This book is very inspirational, whether you need to lose weight or not. It is a great read abd keeps your attention from beginning to end. Without being in-your-face about it, he makes it clear that faith and family are very important to him. He makes it clear that he had to take drastic measures, while outlining sensible plans that work for anyone.
author claims "diets don't work", yet consumed 800 calories a day for 8 months  Feb 3, 2009
This story has some inspiration and motivation in it for many, I am sure. But for a physician who writes--more than once--that "diets don't work," then why did he undertake a DRASTIC 800-calorie-a-day-nothing-but-liquid-protein-shakes DIET to lose the weight he writes about??????

And while he promises early in the book to write more about liquid protein shake diets, his very scanty page about it in the back provides no substantial information.

And while bravo for him that he could take a year off work and go motoring around the country to take his mind off his self-induced drastic diet, it's certainly nothing practical the rest of us can follow.

And his 7 Pillars? Written after he lost his weight, certainly not what he followed while on his drastic diet.

On the plus side, reading his story does make it easy to think that if he did it, so can others.
My Big Fat Greek Diet  May 29, 2008

Not only entertaining but encouraging for anyone who wants to lose weight.
Very good suggestions for anyone no matter what age or genter.
