The foods that are recommended are easy to find at any grocery store and you will learn what to eat, how much to eat and how to properly space out your meals. You will have one meal per week called a refuel meal. This meal allows you to eat anything you want, without guilt. Changing the way you think about food is really important to this program. There are some simple rules that you can implement right away to get you going on this program. For those that are trying to prevent type 2 diabetes or trying to reverse it, there is a Diabetes Detox listed. The four simple steps to helping to control your blood sugar levels include:

  • Eliminate ALL simple sugars: This includes foods containing white flour, table sugar and high fructose corn syrup. This can be an effective way of reconditioning your body to process carbs and sugars effectively.
  • Eliminate all caloric drinks: Low-sugar added and no-sugar added beverages are not enough. Stick with zero calorie drinks like water, mineral water, tea, etc.
  • Limit your starches: Starch breaks down into sugars so limit your intake of potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas and products made with grains. Eat more starches that are unrefined like whole grains and brown rice. Be sure to keep the quantities small and don't eat these at every meal.
  • Start doing at least 30 minutes of cardio everyday: Regular activity helps control your blood sugar and helps you lose excess fat.

Along with the Diabetes Detox, there are several recipes that can be used with the meal plan for Think and Grow Thin. There are also recipes available for the maintenance phase after you’ve reached your weight loss goals. Some of the delicious recipes included are:

I have not yet tried this diet, just fininished the book.
what was not mentioned in the review is that the meal plan given is very strict. It is broken into 2 week blocks and you are to eat the same thing every day for the entire two weeks. I am not saying this is a negative or a positive, but I felt it should be adressed.
