The idea is to lose weight without feeling hungry or being deprived of the things you crave. You will find that your previous cravings were due to nutrients that you were lacking in the foods you had been eating. Once you start eating for your blood type, it will be natural to switch over to the "approved" foods without missing any of the taste. In fact, dinner guest will not realize that they are eating "natural" products instead of processed foods. This is not intended to be a "diet", it is a way of life, and your new eating habits will last throughout your lifetime.

You can start the plan sooner and then reference the hardcover as you continue to understand information behind the outline.
