I too bought this book after having seen the PBS special "Lose seven foods, feel great fast", and found the regimen a lot more strict than the PBS special lead you to believe. First of all, the idea that it is "seven" foods is ludicrous. The "seven" foods are components of just about every processed food on the market. Also, the PBS program was quick to show you easy substitutions (i.e. eat hummous and veggies instead!), whereas the book was pretty strict on meal timing, organics, etc.

Having said all that... This program totally worked for me. I lost 9 pounds the first week, and 2- 2.5 pounds per week thereafter. I discovered that gluten was the culprit for me. I went a month without pasta, without bread, without flour, crackers anything and then when I finally reintroduced them, within 2 days I was pushing them away because the headaches, joint pain and bloating were so pronounced. Ditto dairy- after years of acne and oily hair, after a month on the program my hair and skin are fantastic! I feel better than I have in years, and that is real motivation to keep going.

I think this program works well for me because I love cooking, love healthy foods and have the time and motivation to plan and execute meals. I think that vegetarians (I am mostly vegetarian) may struggle with it because she is so adamant about "lean clean protein" in the form of beef, fish etc. Also, it is very all or nothing- not a book which advocates moderation. Despite all these caveats- I've got to say no other diet book has ever had anywhere near the impact on me that this one has.

Later....

Just wanted to add an update. I started this plan January 1, 2013. It is March 23 and so far I have lost 26 pounds. (ultimate goal 52). The food I am eating is so flavourful, and I feel so good that it has really not been much of a struggle. I think I'd upgrade this to five stars now.

The Virgin Diet, Lose 7 Pound, Just 7 Days - Through this book my husband and I have learned a great deal about food intolerance and we like her analysis of how food reacts chemically in our bodies. We have been on this diet for less than a week and we are losing weight easily and feeling more energetic.

I had seen an 'infomercial' on PBS about this program and of course it was more legit with PBS endorsing the message. So I bought the book and found it difficult to get through the self-promotion of JJ Virgin. While most of the details are out there in any number of books, I haven't found the time to read them any and thought this would be a good summary. With Virgin's constant reminder that she is a miracle worker, I became distracted from the valuable information in the book. I have stopped using the foods as per her recommendation and had excellent results around pain management. There is some good info to be reminded of in the book but the foods you can eat/menus could use more work - otherwise it becomes difficult to sustain, even for 21 days.
Good content, lousy read.

This book is great. It is full of good ideas and great information about maintaining good health and should be part of my library of reference books - The price of the book was also great, as it is more expensive to buy from Coles/Chapters book stores. The book came to me in good shape. The mailperson did shove the book in my small superbox on my street and had the hardest time trying to get the parcel out of the box and was sure the book was damaged. Thankfully you put the book in a sturdy/protective cardboard. I do wonder about Canada Post staff thought. lol lol lol The book arrived last September 18, 2013. Worth the wait

I watched this woman on Canada AM and was immediately drawn to her message about weight loss and food intolerance. I ordered the book immediately! Not overly excited about the title as I have struggled with my weight all my life and refuse to try another diet but this is so much MORE than that!
It is a simple read and I agree with the other reviewer Deb Dorsey,that there is more than enough self promotion throughout the pages,but getting beyond that and extracting the real facts is easy to do. I sat with a high-lighter and pulled out all of the important, useful information.
JJ Virgin's shake products are not available in Canada at this time so there is a little modification to the program but this was not difficult to do it is all just a matter of demographics. The concept remains the same.
I began Cycle 1 two weeks ago and have already lost 10 pounds! I think that the best part of this is that after buying the book and connecting with her online there is endless support. She follows up with encouraging videos and tracking information. She is there to answer any questions. I am trying it the JJ way!

I gave this 4 stars because as the diet is better than most fad diets out there I think it's over complicated. After buying this and reading I tried to implement for 2 weeks. Then I just realized it's pretty much an elimination diet. So I 've been doing that and lost 15 pounds so far! Discovered Im intolerant to soy and popcorn (which I used to eat every night!). That explains why I was always bloated. Was delivered quickly! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle.
