Start your review of Eat Yourself Slim Write a review Oct 01, Maria rated it liked it 5 stars for his method, but 3 stars for this book. I prefer the original version of his book "Dine out and lose weight" which is no longer in print. However the method works and I believe is one of the few sustainable approaches to losing and maintaining weight.
He also makes suggestions for eating out, how to compensate for when you cannot follow the method strictly etc. I would recommend the method and therefore you need to read the book regardless of its rating. This is a very interesting theory and can be easily tested by applying the suggestions of a low glycemic diet. It was translated from French to English by someone who was not completely proficient in English so there are all sorts of odd expressions and idioms.
You can almost hear the French accent. Some food it talks about are not typically found in the U. He does not understand vegetarianism or vegnism at all. There is a passing reference saying that being vegetarian for ethical reasons is ok as long as you eat dairy and eggs to get your missing nutrients.
Some of his nutritional information seems out of date or just plain wrong. He refers to an amino acid, cysteine, saying it can only be found in animal sources when in fact there are many plant sources for it. So I can pick and choose, to a certain degree, what I think makes sense and what does not.
For example, I love the tip on eating fruits 15 minutes before meals or on their own for better digestion. On the positive side, if you do need to This diet was recommended to me not for weight loss, but for better intestinal health.
