Hi Joy
It has good and bad points - it tries to teach the use of "healthy fats", but has fairly low proteien volumes per day ( especially for men) and is in concept a low carb, high fat diet - which is fine to lose weight on but almost impossible to keep up with longterm. You do need carbs for energy - if you eat only small amounts ( 1/2 cup per portion, 4-6 portions per day) and choose low GI high fibre carbs, you can eat carbs without picking up weight. It may increase cholesterol levels in some people with hereditary fat metabolism disorders. It motivates patients to exercise, which is good, but also restrict you in what you may or may not eat. This is always difficult to adhere to in the long term.
Just have a look at the diet section on - there are good articles on weight loss.
