Well, I am now further in and can say that the plan looks like something that would work for me. I will outline the specifics real soon. This is one of those books that I wish I had in the book form (I have it in Kindle format). It would be much easier to navigate and plan. I think what I am going to start doing is to take notes as I go along.
The basics... It is very much like the Mediterranean diet with some specific alterations to help curb hunger and to make sure that vitamin requirements are met. I like the idea that the diet is mostly automated for the sake of ease. I even like the recipes. I think I can get my husband to eat at last half of the recipes even! So, far I am loving the book!
