Sorry I can't be of more help, I don't have the book any more - although
I had been thinking recently of trying the diet again, and these posts
have reminded me of that, so I might get one of his books again. He's
written two or three, mostly the same info with variations and different
recipes and updated versions. One is called "Eat Yourself Slim", as I
recall. I'll try and look it up, if you like.
