Advice & Tips: After reading Dr Jelinek's work on diet (a friend's of mine recommended it), I'm hoping of a better health in general, even if it's sometime hard to choose between a good T-Bone on a BBQ or a slice of Spice-marinated Tofu. The program is good for everyone, diagnosed or not.

Advice & Tips: Since I can't seem to keep on a diet there are no effective general health evaluations, no side effects and no unexpected positive effects. It is important that I lose weight for my high blood pressure and I just can't handle the compulsive behaviors. I am hoping evaluating the attitude and lifestyle sections will give me some insight or prod me enough to lose 20 lbs.

Advice & Tips: Since I haven't been too faithful at staying away from chocolate and ice cream, I can't report a great jump in efficacy! Compulsive chocoholic--with good intentions, but keep just about at the same weight all the time--155-160 lbs. Impact: Always at the edge of my consciousness --. It would probably save me money if I followed it faithfully!
