I recently lost weight by following a lower carbohydrate diet and
an aerobic exercise program. I then hit a plateau and believed that a diet designed for my specific body type (gynaeoid) would get me back on track to losing weight, however, this book was one big dissapointment and had me hurrying back to "The Protein Power Plan". Dr. Cabot's recommendations for the gynaeoid body type are just too high in carbohydrates and too low in protein. On the one hand she says that the gynaeoid body type is "estrogen dominant" but goes on to advise us to eat soy beans (which are high in phytoestrogens). In one chapter she advises to eat rice, pasta, corn, potatoes (all foods very high in starch) but advises against eating bread!!! I can only comment on the section dealing with my body type, perhaps the diet has worked for others. But what I know for certain is that if I were to follow Dr. Cabot's advice for my body type - it would trigger such a sugar binge that I'd end up where I was several months ago. I simply wasted my money on this book.
