Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a fan of Mr. Robbins, I just ordered my copy of this book. You should know that in 2017, I was able to lose finally a whopping 18 pounds using another book called The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution, a book that I highly recommend that more people should buy. That book changed my life because finally, it was a book that spoke to me because out of every diet book that I ever read, it was written by somebody that shared my struggles and showed me how to handle them. Since then, I have made a concerted effort to eat better to live better as the book stresses. I am now conscious of my eating habits and have managed to keep most of that weight off. The information on drinking enough water has been immensely helpful because it helped me shed my initial 7 pounds which as my doctor told me, water weight gain after the birth of my daughter. Even the information about the size of your plate is a game changer. The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution to me actually showed me how to handle all of the information that Ocean first told us about in his book Voices Of The Food Revolution. Hopefully, this book will keep that momentum going, but I suggest for sustainable weight loss, buy, download, or borrow a copy of The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. I pray that it will help you as much as it helped me.
The 31-Day Food Revolution consists of four stages: Detoxify, Nourish, Gather and Transform. In Detoxify, you learn to stop eating the foods that are bad for you such as processed foods with are high in sugar. Since my diet consists mainly of carbs, this section was important for me to see that the foods that I am currently eating are not providing my body with healthy nutrients, just satisfying my cravings. In Nourish, you learn to replace the foods you have been eating with healthy choices of real wholesome foods. This is difficult for me and I discovered that my diet is very lacking in nutrients when quizzed. The Gather section discusses the fact that if we don’t surround ourselves with people who believe in healthy foods and living that it is difficult to maintain our excitement. The Transform section ends with was to grow our own healthy foods. As a senior, I did not feel that this section necessary pertained to me but it would be helpful to someone with the desire and ability to do so. Overall, I felt that this book was a good change to a healthy food plan rather than dieting. I felt that the intent to change the mindset of people rather than just helping them to lose weight was a good approach. I enjoyed the recipes and believe they will be easy to cook. I received an ARC from Grand Central Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion or rating of this book.
