The Short of It:

The Perfect 10 Diet is not a fad, but a proposed way of life. It’s based on sound principles and is pretty easy to live with.

The Rest of It:

If you’ve been on a diet or two within the last, oh…twenty years, you’ve probably seen dieting come full-circle. Some programs focus on liquids, others on carbs, some on proteins and all of them basically result in a restriction of what is going in, and an increase of what you are putting out. Less food, more activity. Makes perfect sense, yet so many of us fight this concept daily.

The Perfect 10 Diet does sound a bit trendy. However, it addresses the way your body reacts to certain foods. Processed foods that are high in fat wreak havoc with your system. This program has you eating whole foods that are low-fat and low in calories, but interspersed with some good fats. The difference here, is that the healthy fats fill you up and provide your body what it needs to function properly.

I have been dealing with some health issues of my own, so although I had every intention to follow this program in its entirety, I was not able to follow it the way it should be followed due to severe food allergies. As a result, I ended up gaining a few pounds.

However, as a person who has been raised on chemicals and processed, pre-packaged foods, I can honestly tell you what little I did manage to follow, still made a difference as far as how I felt.  The program makes sense. The book is well-organized and includes recipes and a supplement section for those that want to address specific health concerns.

If you are looking for a program you can live with, then The Perfect 10 Diet may be just what you are looking for.

Once my allergies are under control, I am going to re-visit the program and see what it can do for me. If you’ve followed Dr. Aziz’s program, I’d love to hear from you.
