Let's Do Lunch

Recently, I read Let’s Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson. In this book, Roger Troy tells his story of losing over 200 pounds through an eating plan he created.

The basic premise of this book is that your largest meal of the day should be lunch. This meal should contain all of your protein for the day. He also stresses the importance of not snacking throughout the day unless absolutely necessary. Also, dinner and breakfast are to consist mainly of fruit. Bread is also restricted on this diet as well as desserts and sweets of any type.

Since I have tried various types of diets on the past, and have been successful at some and not so successful at others, I was hoping this book would have some new tips I haven’t heard of before. It did not. I did not like the idea that dinner should only consist of fruit and there should be no bread in your diet. If you restrict one type of food, you will inevitably want more of it and will binge on that particular food. Also, I think when you are craving food it’s important to not ignore that craving as the book recommends because when you eventually eat that food, you will eat large amounts of the food.

Overall, this book may be good for those people who do not know how to diet and have never tried to diet in the past, but I did not find anything in the book new or to be helpful to me in my attempts to lose weight.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
