5.0 out of 5 stars The best diet/health book ever written July 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While it is not the most popular, The Pritikin Program will help anyone lose weight quickly while maintaining the proper nutritional balance. Especially good for those people interested in losing body fat. I managed to get down to 3% body fat and 130 Cholesterol level while following Pritikin. While you need not follow the program in its entirety, it is an especially useful guide to helping the dieter get more fit while feeling better.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really works! Jan. 18 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I followed the recommended diet for Maximum Weight Loss plan and lost 10 lbs in 7 weeks. My cholesterol level dropped from 220 to 156 in that time also. I continued to follow the maintenance plan for over a year and kept the weight off. I just had a baby and plan to follow the plan again to get back to my goal weight!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but should be updated Aug. 11 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book had some useful information in it, although much of the material is 20 years old and I'm sure that we have better nutritional information now than then. For instance, Pritikin eliminates all oils including olive oil, and yet there is other literature that pushes the health benefits of olive oil.

Nathan was so far ahead of his time, people actually scoffed at his ideas about the link between nutrition and heart disease. Now we know much more than he did, but this basic overview makes more sense than any other book I have read on the subject.

Having a tough time since I NEVER RECIEVED the book! It looks like I paid for it, but months later, no product! What's going on?
