I'm doing it right now. So far I've lost five lbs, have way more energy, wake up earlier, and feel great, basically.
It's simple, easy to follow, and the foods you can eat are not only tasty but good for you!
The best part about it is that it gives you a ratio of how much you should eat of each type of food- if you follow it, you'll find that you don't get hungry as often and you feel satisfied sooner, I find.
Anyways, I'd totally recommend it, I think it's great. It's made me be way more conscious of what I put into my body, and just generally take care of myself better.
