The Omni Diet: The Revolutionary 70% PLANT + 30% PROTEIN Program to Lose Weight, Reverse Disease, Fight Inflammation, and Change Your Life Forever

By the time she had reached her mid-30s, Tana Amen had nearly given up on good health. Through a lifetime of chronic medical ailments, including severe digestive issues, recurrent infections and, most devastatingly, a battle with thyroid cancer, there was never a point when Tana felt consistently healthy. Doctors ascribed her poor health to genetics, bad luck, and a family history of obesity and heart disease. But even when Tana committed to a standard fitness and eating regimen, her health fail

    The Omni Diet is is well written and full of valuable information. It presents a solid diet plan that, according to the author, attempts to replicate some of the benefits "calorie restriction" (which has been shown to extend the lifespan of animals and reduce disease) without forcing you to actually go on a near starvation diet.

    The basic plan is that you eat 70% plant-based food and 30% protein-rich foods. The Diet is divided into four phases that gradually allow you more options. While the explanations provided are very good, don't expect anything radically new. For example, the first step of this diet is to go through your pantry and THROW OUT: pasta, bread, rice, candy/sweets and anything sweet. In other words, it's pretty similar to the advice you've been given already. The 70% plan-based part of the diet is really "low carb" plant food like non-starchy vegetables and limited quantities of fruit.

    The book has a detailed diet plan and a total of about 130 recipes divided into Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, Snacks, and Deserts. The book is printed attractively in two colors and is well organized. The recipes are clearly presented. Each recipe provides full nutritional information, including calories, carbs, sugar, fiber, sodium, etc.

    I would also suggest The Protein Express Diet: Rapid Weight Loss with a Simplified Low Carb, High Protein Diet. This has a plan that is quite similar with even more emphais on protein and meals that are very fast and easy to prepare. Protein is critical because it can help you avoid muscle loss during the weight loss phase of your diet. You can easily combine the ideas from both of these plans to create a high protein, plant-based diet that works even for people who don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

    After seeing Tana Amen on TV Speaking about her book I had to buy it. I found that the book is well researched,easy to understand and has lots of good information.
    The things I did not like about the book were that many of the receipes had such a long lists of ingredients that they looked as if they would take hours to prepare, for example ,just one receipe had 19 ingredients . I honestly don't have the time or money to get what is needed for many of these dishes.
    The other thing that is that one recipe for pork chops called for s&w stewed tomatoes, when I searched s&w online , the only s&w stewed tomatoes I found contained high fructose corn syrup.
    In the end I would like to purchase the supplements they speak about but when I checked out the prices I changed my mind .
    For me This is a good book to learn from but hard to follow.

    The author asked me to give her two weeks... and I did, May 27, 2013

    This review is from: The Omni Diet: The Revolutionary 70% PLANT + 30% PROTEIN Program to Lose Weight, Reverse Disease, Fight Inflammation, and Change Your Life Forever (Hardcover)

    Frankly the recipes included herein are a total Californication of cuisine & intolerable to my fly-over state constitution. However I know how to apply the concepts she presents with recipes to suit my own tastes. Furthermore my philosophy is to reject dogmatic rigidity wherever I find it. So I use the book as one might use a seive in a gemstone mine. There are many jems here.

    The fundamental concept here is to eat a wide variety of vegetables and high quality proteins foods while avoiding simple carbohydrates and prepared foods (think - prepared poison). She is inflexible on the matter of eating vegetables. If you hate them as I do - too bad. Learn to love them. As for potatoes & pasta - I confess that my friends serve them & as long as they do I'll eat them. But at home I'll practice these concepts as well as I can.

    OK I did give her two weeks (with my recipes). With a couple of back-sliding days with my friends. And I make wine so of course I drink it. So there. Two weeks - lost 7 pounds. Energy is much improved. The fog that enters the mind in older years has dissipated. I believe old David Crockett told a lie about confronting a bear while being disarmed - in his extremity he was forced to "grin it to death". I wish well to our bears but almost feel the energy & concentration necessary for such emergencies.

    For men particularly she recommends adding maca as a suppliment. That is alleged to be a libido enhancing agent. I say nonsence. Libido - energy - mental focus - general well being are inseperable. I've tried the stuff & I recommend it too. The taste is bad at first but it has grown on me in short time.

    For everyone she recommends spirulina (dried algae) as a super food. Tried it... If spirulina will somehow give me the longevity of Abraham then I'm doomed to the longevity of Archie Bunker. It really pegged the nasty meter. Disgusting!

    So generally I think the author's advice is excellent & correct. It's up to each person to find how to apply it in a way acceptable to himself/herself. Don't know how to cook? Too bad. Learn as I did. Don't like vegetables? Too bad. Find out how to like them. Love your carbs? Too bad. Learn how to reject them (when socially ok to do so).

    Update June 20: Size 40 waist pants look silly now. 38s are about right. Friends & neighbors begin to notice & ask questions. I think I'm a bit stronger than I was. At least don't tire as easily. Work becomes easier. Intelligence is not improved but capicity to focus attention is. Who but the owner of that capacity can tell the difference.

    I still loathe artichokes & brussels sprouts. Aragula & spirulina are for people with self-hate issues. YUCK! But the concept works! I'm doing what is demanded most days and it really is working. Will update again in December.
