Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets three stars. While I didn't agree with the whole pro-whole grains and very strict dietary guidelines there was some helpful information. I didn't particularly care for the author's assertions that all potatoes and cheese must be completely eliminated from the diet. The extensive recommendations about artificial sweetener use with its safety questioned in only a brief paragraph were more than a bit disturbing. The diet would be difficult to follow long tern for most people, but some may be successful. Everyone who reads it will come away with at least a few new, healthier ideas to implement in his or her own life.
