Gary Null's Ultimate Lifetime Diet: A Revolutionary All-Natural Program for Losing Weight and Building a Healthy Body

Gary Null, Author Broadway Books $30 (720p) ISBN 978-0-7679-0473-5

In Part One of his new book, talk-show host Null (Gary Null's Ultimate Anti-Aging Program) explains in lengthy detail what he considers to be the negative effects of many diets, including hormonal imbalances and eating disorders. Although some readers will find this amount of information helpful, others may become discouraged by the lengthy explanations and clinical terminology used. In Part Two, Null offers his solution, which combines behavior modification, ""detoxifying"" one's system with specific foods and liquids instead of dieting and pages of recipes that support a healthier lifestyle. The honest and realistic success stories in Part Three are likely to inspire the reader to take Null's advice. Ultimately, Null asks readers to analyze their relationship to food (whether eating masks depression and anxiety, for example). The extensive appendixes--profiling foods, chemicals and medical terms--are a very helpful reference. Readers already familiar with alternative medicine and/or holistic living will benefit from Null's vision, but, due to its size, the book may overwhelm those addressing their diet and weight issues alone or for the first time.
