Hi sky - I bought the (yes, pricey!) book, hoping for more detail on the diet. Surprisingly, it's quite hard work to fathom what exactly the diet is - I had to take notes, cross-reference quantities and so on to finally get it. I wish she had just produced a checklist with weights in grammes. The first half of the book (about 60pp) is the rationale for the diet. I don't understand biochemistry but it's sort of reassuring to know that she does and that's it's a well thought-out plan (as far as I could tell). The rest is mostly recipes but I generally find other people's recipes pretty useless because my tastes usually aren't the same as theirs and I have to decide for myself how to translate the basic ingredients into things I'll enjoy eating. If you are less picky about your food, you might find the recipes useful! The big exception, though, is the recipe for kale chips - it tastes like crispy seaweed (yum!) and involves considerably less chewing. One thing about these expensive books is that if you don't want to keep them, you can list them for resale on Amazon and (for this book anyway) get most of your money back.
