"I'm only sorry I was over 60 when I was told about this book and way of eating. A friend who had lost over 35 pounds recommended it to me. Before I read the book I felt the method was way too restrictive and dismissed it. Then I ordered the book and read exactly what the eating plan entailed. I felt it was very doable and that everything Dean Ornish was suggesting were foods that I enjoyed and actually loved. I have lost over 30 pounds, going from 172 to 140. Yes it took me 2 years but I never had a problem sticking to it. I have totally changed the way I eat and what I eat when I go out. One caveat, however, is that it is difficult to eat this way if you eat out a lot. There is very little dairy or oil in this diet--and you won't mind if you read the last part of the book with suggestions on how to cook without oil--but almost every restaurant loads up vegetarian type dishes with cheese or cream or both. I have a few favorite restaurants here in Chicago where I can choose easily from their regular menu but just ask them to leave off the sauce.
If you enjoy simple, clean, fresh food that is simply prepared and if you enjoy chili beans, lentils, chick peas brown rice, ww pasta and all the dishes you can make with them, then you should try this diet. It's not a diet to me but a new way of eating. My son is also eating this way and he is much happier eating this way and says he will never go back to meat and potatoes. Thank you Dean Ornish for changing my life! I have never felt this good and I am 68."
