Mostly superfluous and regurgitated information. March 10 2013
By Leigh Vandriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Even though it costs a good bit more than this book, I absolutely love Mr. Mateljan's book entitled The World's Healthiest Foods. This one with the weight loss emphasis is largely a repeat of things in the larger, much better book. I am obese, but not morbidly so, therefore I bought this book hoping for some extra help with weight loss issues. Other than some testimonials, it adds nothing new to the discussion as far as I'm concerned. So if you can, spring for the big one. I hope this helps.

Real people can eat real food, lose weight and get healthier! Feb. 8 2012
By Lara Pizzorno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
George's latest book<Weight Loss Success without Dieting, is inspired by letters he received from many visitors to his .org website, the World's Healthiest Foods (whfoods.org). These are real people, hundreds of them, who discovered an unexpected side-effect of eating healthy -- losing weight, lots of it, with no hunger, no boredom, no feelings of deprivation. And they did this eating real food, lots of real food -- not the prepackaged, chemicalized, miniscule portions of food you get from the diet plans that offer to help you lose weight by restricting your every calorie and delivering your meals in little, but expensive, microwavable boxes. George's dietary plan is one that you can live, really live with --for the rest of your life. And not only will it make you lean, but vibrantly healthy.
Once you understand why -- which George explains in much science-backed but easy to understand detail in Weight Loss Success -- it makes total sense. The basic concept is "nutrient-density". Nutrient-dense foods are those that deliver the richest concentration of the nutrients we need for a robust metabolism for the least amount of calories. If the foods you eat are nutrient-dense, you can enjoy plenty of them and will still effortlessly lose excess weight (and feel and look terrific). The only potential roadblocks here are figuring out which are the most nutrient-dense foods and finding ways to prepare them that make you actually want to eat them because they taste really good. Oh, and you also want to be able to do this in a really short amount of time -- comparable to waiting for that stuff in the box to heat up in the microwave.
Happily for us, George has done all this work in Weight Loss Success. He's shared with us the letters of weight loss success he has received from real people to inspire us (and believe me, they will! if these folks can do it, so can the rest of us!), he's explained why a nutrient-dense way of eating makes unwanted fat vanish while maintaining muscle and energy and promoting overall health, and he's laid out an entire month of great recipes -- these are very quick, easy, inexpensive and so delicious. These recipes are going to be your family's favorites long after those extra pounds of fat are history.
You could probably figure out a decent weight loss plan for yourself using the information George has now, for more than 10 years, freely provided for all of us on The World's Healthiest Foods. But you really should just buy the book. You'll know all your meals are giving you perfectly balanced nutrition. George has done all the work for you, so losing weight is going to be not just stress-free, but fun. You're going to want a copy of this book in your kitchen, both for the recipes and the inspiration it provides. And all--not just a portion-- of the money you spend buying the book will be used to keep the World's Healthiest Foods going for all of us. You get to give back while giving yourself Weight Loss Success without Dieting -- what could be better than this!

A great little common sense book Aug. 1 2013
By Morning Calm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this after becoming interested in Mateljan's website on the world's healthiest foods. I'm finding that the book, like his site, uses common-sense approaches to food choices and preparation.

After a few weeks of eating the world's healthiest food, it strikes me that it's just so obvious: eat the food that has the most nutritional value per calorie. Duh, right? My way of tricking myself into eating it at first was to say, "I can have all the processed, high-sugar food I want AFTER I'm finished with my allotment of nutrient-dense food." Well, of course, after the nutrient-dense food, I simply wasn't hungry for the other stuff. And now, three weeks in, the food I used to eat is too sweet, too dense, too greasy for my taste.

This is a great introduction to using the world's healthiest food to lose weight. I'd recommend supplementing it with the author's (free) website after you've tried it for a few weeks.

Difficult at first, but well worth it! April 4 2013
By gillmoli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It was definitely difficult to switch over from the standard American diet (mine was even worse since my mother passed away in December; eating TONS of "comfort" foods to help with the pain), but when I saw myself in photos from a recent event that I attended, I was shocked with the reality of my situation. It's so easy to be in denial about one's weight. "I'm not that bad" used to be my mantra. Well, it was that bad. With summer rapidly approaching and aches and pains that I knew were signs of my body telling me that enough was enough, I finally made the commitment to change my life.

For years I have subscribed to George's weekly newsletter and daily recipes, so when I saw that he had published a book specifically targeted at weight loss, I had to check it out. It has been the best thing for me. At first it's a lot of work: making grocery lists, prepping all the food and then cooking it. It was challenging, but after a few days, I got the hang of it. It's been nearly 3 weeks since I've been on this "diet" and I've already lost 5 pounds. I have more energy. I finally feel clear-headed and able to take on tasks that used to overwhelm me just at the thought of them. I also added lunchtime walks while at work. Some days I walk 3 miles within the hour and I feel great. I can't always walk during work, so when I can't, I make sure to get in some other type of physical activity to make up for it. I'm certain that I would have lost even more weight by now if I had stepped up my exercise routine.

The book has quite a few recipes, but many more on his website ([...]). He has created a new way of cooking vegetables so that they retain their vital nutrients as well as make them taste great! There is tons of information about inflammation, diabetes, and other health issues related to obesity and poor diets that will inform even the most health-aware person. (George cites all the sources of his information, which is key). I've already sent a copy to my father who was just diagnosed with diabetes as well as to other friends who have various health issues. Again, I can't recommend this book enough. It's time to change your life. It's only too late when you're dead.

good book Feb. 22 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Not much in the way of recipes, mostly just facts and instructions in the way of eating habits for healthy eating.
