Walford's landmark Beyond the 120 Year Diet is a classic, and should be read as well, but it's badly out of date on both core CR science and ancillary issues of basic healthy nutritional advice and dietary supplements, and also is somewhat badly organized and contains many errors in the references. The CR Way is overly-focused on side issues, overly-emphasizes unproven mechanistic hypotheses about the biochemical basis for the anti-aging effects of CR, and is trying too hard to make CR sound flexible and open -- to the point that it tends to neglect the core requirement that people actually, substantially lower their Caloric intake over an extended period of time, in favor of dietary and lifestyle manipulations of very uncertain relationship to CR or long-term benefit. And, even if is ready to follow through with actual Calorie restriction, The CR Way might also have the opposite problem: of introducing so *many* peripheral tweaks of uncertain benefit as to overwhelm readers, thinking either that they can equally take up any of them, or that they have to take up all of them or the whole project is doomed.
This new edition is clear, focused, and practical; from here on in, it should be the first book that people looking to take up CR read to help make an informed decision and then to guide them into successful CR practice.
Anyway, I lost 5-10 pounds fast. In that first couple of weeks I went hungry at times. It felt too fast, and at times I felt light-headed. So I checked in with my doctor (I was fine) and ate a little more. My weight steadied. I had my cholesterol checked after a couple of months and it was a big improvement. Now I generally eat better and it's more of a habit than an effort. I'm still losing gradually and have lost 15-20 pounds so far.
I've read many "diet books" in the past. South Beach wasn't bad, but this is significantly better. By that I mean it worked better for me. You don't have to follow the book to the letter to make it work, and to the authors' credit, they say so and offer advice on that.
This book is a look at what cutting edge science is finding out. Eat fewer calories but increase the nutrient load to your body. The result is a healthier life. If everyone in this country were to eat according to this understanding we could reduce the current death rate up to 42% by my reckoning of current death rates in the US. Heart disease would be virtually eliminated as well as stroke and diabetes. Many cancers would be eliminated to the same extent. This is not to say that we won't die, but I would rather put it off a while as my father did when he changed his ways after having a stroke in the 60's. He lived another 25 years which he should not have done given his previous history. He went against the then current medical doctrine. So listen to your doctor because they really do want to help. But you have to learn to fill in the gaps in medical doctrine. You have to heal yourself.
