The Virgin Diet: Drop 7 Foods, Lose 7 Pounds, Just 7 Days is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Your fat is not your fault.

Are you eating all the right things—low-fat yogurt, egg-white omelets, whole-grain bread, even tofu—but still can't lose the weight? Your favorite "diet" foods may be to blame.

In this groundbreaking program, nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin reveals the real secret behind weight gain—food intolerance. A negative reaction to certain foods like dairy or gluten can sabotage your health by triggering inflammation and causing a host of nasty symptoms like bloating, breakouts, headaches, achy joints and—worst of all—stubborn weight gain.

On The Virgin Diet, you'll eat plenty of anti-inflammatory, healing foods to reclaim your health and reset your metabolism, while avoiding the 7 foods that are most likely to cause food intolerance. You'll never feel hungry or deprived, and in just one week, you'll drop up to 7 pounds, lose belly bloat, gain energy, clear up inflammation and look and feel years younger. And that's just the beginning!

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Educational The Virgin Diet Review First of all I’m not for reading unless I seek information on how to create or repair anything electrical / mechanical or architectural. This book I read up to and including the first diet week in 2 days. Not like me at all. Most of the content was over my head, but got the gest of what’s going on in the digestive system. I’ve all ways believed that foods from the farms are good for me and still do. Your book is a great help in choosing those foods that are best choices and that’s worth the price and time to buy and read your book. I’m 65 pushing 66 and just learned I have a condition called Hemochromatosis. After all the MRI’s etc., I have no problems as a result of the condition. Your diet information, I believe will help me make even better choices of the foods that I have been consuming. I’m glad I watch the PBS and sat through you lecture.

About the Book

In this groundbreaking program, nutrition and fitness expert Virgin reveals the real secret behind weight gain - "food intolerance." With this diet, readers eat plenty of anti-inflammatory, healing foods to reclaim health and reset metabolism, while avoiding foods most likely to cause food intolerance.

Read from the Book

FOOD INTOLERANCE The Hidden Cause of Weight Gain Leslie was at the end of her rope. She'd been to every doctor in the Los Angeles area, and nobody could help her. As it happens, her stepmother is Suzanne Somers, an expert in health, beauty and fitness. Suzanne knows all the gurus, besides being one herself. But none of them could fix Leslie's problem. Leslie was 40 pounds overweight. It didn't seem to matter whether she ate or not. She had this chronic bloating thing going on—in fact, she got more and more bloated as the day continued, no matter how little she ate. I loved Leslie on the spot. She's adorable. And I was struck by how much she was already doing the right things—and how little any of them were helping her. "What's going on, JJ?" Leslie asked me. At this point, she was beyond frustrated. "You've got to help me out, because nobody else has ever been able to." I felt a lot of sympathy for Leslie, who was working so hard to lose weight—and with so little result. She exercised and was very careful about counting calories and controlling portions. But as I tell all of my clients, your body isn't a savings bank or a calorimeter. It's a chemistry lab. Counting calories and measuring portions just isn't enough. You have to know how your body is responding to the foods you eat. And Leslie's body was telling her that she wasn't eating right. I suspected that Leslie's problems stemmed from food in

Editorial Reviews

"The Virgin Diet provides the exact game plan you need to finally beat the exhausting game of weight-loss resistance. This book is sure to shake up the diet world and put soy, wheat and dairy (and a few others) on notice! Well-researched and filled with case studies of people who have lived this diet, my prediction is The Virgin Diet will become a classic." -Leanne Ely, ONC, New York Times bestselling author from SavingDinner.com
