About book: ***** This is a First Reads, Thank You Goodreads *****Not all Diet books are the same. First, let me disclose I have a lot of food allergies and intolerance. This is not something I was born with, it was something that just happened. One morning I woke up to say goodbye to all dairy. Now, the nut thing, I was born with.It is hard to find books filled with information, diet, recipes, or any form of education when you have these issues - all this in one book, amazing. The author is a nutritionist and gives the basics, along with the reasons for cutting certain foods out. With simple easy to understand instructions, tables, where certain ingredients hide, wonderful hints, and helpful recipes - I think that this is a great book. Is it easy, no. Of course being pushed to consider coconut (which triggers migraines in me) is not the answer as any substitute and finding that "perfect fit" will be hard for anyone in similar circumstances. But being healthy is the goal and making our families eat better and feel better is too. First you eliminate the 7 food types from your diet, then slowly reintroduce. See how you feel, the results in your body. Maybe you might want to cut them out completely. Again, there are great recipes found for the reintroduction. This book was very interesting, but it did not convince me to actually try the Virgin Diet. I found that the cover was a bit misleading, "Drop 7 foods, lose 7 pounds, just 7 days", it wasn't until later in the book where you found out that there are different cycles that go into this diet and some take up to 3 months to complete. One reason that I was reluctant to try the diet was because of the cost of the vegan protein shakes, one 2LB container costs around $60. But don't get me wrong, just because I didn't try the diet does not mean that I didn't like the book. The book taught me a lot of things that I can do better to feel better. For example, eating dairy causes acne and eating tilapia is better than eating grouper because a grouper has a high level of mercury.I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads program.

I wish I enjoyed nonfiction, but I don't. I got through this so that's a plus.
