    Such a disappointment. I bought the book the first day it came out on Kindle and read it that morning. I saw the titles of the recipes at the beginning and got really excited. I forced myself to actually READ the book instead of skipping to the meals and then going back to figure out how to work the plan (I’m guilty of doing this a lot so I can hurry to the “good stuff”). I was impressed with Rocco’s thoughts on how we need to change our thoughts on meal preparation and do things more Mediterranean style. I was totally into this book and getting excited to get to the actual food section until I got there. Ugh. What a let down.

    A lot of the meals include really random ingredients that I would need to google before knowing what I am looking for. The recipes that were “normal” included things like egg beaters, fat free cheese (gag), and light whole wheat bread. I would rather buy the book in print and eat the pages with hot sauce than fake eggs, fat free cheese and dry bread. Ok maybe not, but I would rather not see recipes of typical foods being turned into low fat versions by using tasteless products. I could have figured that out myself. I bought Rocco’s book expecting the meals to be professional chef inspired, not something I could have figured out on my own by trying low fat versions of typical foods. The chapters leading up had me thinking I would see amazing Mediterranean recipes, not fatty American foods revamped with low fat options.

    There are some recipes that sound good and I will probably try them, but I will definitely be making my own shopping list because the one in this book gives me a headache just thinking about it.

    Also, on a more random note, did anyone read this: “…and of losing so much flab I can actually fit into the ridiculously small sizes my spouse or significant other fantasizes about?” on page 19 and have to read it a second time to make sure you actually read it correctly? Total “WTHeck” moment for sure. Thanks Rocco. Maybe I should have taken the $11 I spent on your book and bought myself a chocolate cake to drown my sorrows in since my significant other must be fantasizing about someone smaller -_-

    PS Does anyone else who gave a 1 star review notice how many “people” are telling you that your review isn’t helpful? 😉

    I was more than ready to embrace this book. I had just seen a segment on THE VIEW and was impressed with the weight loss of Sherri Shepard and her husband. The meals looked great, especially the smoothies. I do remember that Sherri made sure to add that Rocco supplied and prepared all the food. After reading the book, I now know why. I bought the book and started reading it immediately. My first shock was the incredible laundry list of food needed the first week. I looked up some of the ingredients and check on Amazon to get some idea of what some of the more exotic items like Monk Fruit in the Raw cost. In addition, I was trying to figure out how I was going to have enough room in my pantry and refrigerator for all the ingredients on his list for the week! It might be a wonderful program, but just to prepare to set it all up and to follow it is overwhelming as well as expensive. I was looking forward to making some of the smoothies, but was stopped in my tracks when I found the they all had sugar-free instant puddings in them (I don’t use artificial sweetners). As someone said in another review, I am the only one that would be on this program and everything is for 2 to 4 people.

    This may be a great program for someone whose whole family would be on it, has the capacity to get all the ingredients and has the money to pay for it all. Some of the recipes are great and I will certainly make use of adding them to a program that fits my life better. Unfortunately, I will have to continue my search.
