Book Description

Dec 4 2012
Your fat is not your fault.

Are you eating all the right things—low-fat yogurt, egg-white omelets, whole-grain bread, even tofu—but still can't lose the weight? Your favorite "diet" foods may be to blame.

In this groundbreaking program, nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin reveals the real secret behind weight gain—food intolerance. A negative reaction to certain foods like dairy or gluten can sabotage your health by triggering inflammation and causing a host of nasty symptoms like bloating, breakouts, headaches, achy joints and—worst of all—stubborn weight gain.

On The Virgin Diet, you'll eat plenty of anti-inflammatory, healing foods to reclaim your health and reset your metabolism, while avoiding the 7 foods that are most likely to cause food intolerance. You'll never feel hungry or deprived, and in just one week, you'll drop up to 7 pounds, lose belly bloat, gain energy, clear up inflammation and look and feel years younger. And that's just the beginning!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough to follow, but SO worth it Jan. 30 2013
By astrid
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.


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.

3.0 out of 5 stars What Happened to The Editor Jan. 9 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the The book of Virgin Diet Sept. 20 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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

This one's a keeper! The book covers just about everything you need to know to succeed on this plan. I refer to it often and have many pages permanently flagged.

I have been overweight for years but in really bad shape after surviving Cancer. My stomach problems were always blamed on Chemo, and fatigue on Post Cancer fatigue. I saw JJ on TV and purchased the book. I have never felt better.
