This sounds great for most people but I'm diabetic and even with insulin it would be too many carbs a day. Also, many different foods ( and too much dairy) would cause a great deal of extra food cost and we survive on Social Security.

I thought this was a great diet. A lot of choices, from pork to tofu. Each person knows the calories they need daily - based on their weight and goals - and can adapt this to work for them. The recipes sounded delicious.

Why is this diet tailored to people just starting out? This needs to be tailored to everyone. If I did this diet I would gain 10 pounds. These diets need to meet the needs of everyone. There are no one size fits all diets. Please consider making diets for those who have worked out for years and have hit a plateau and need diets that suit them.
