It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Isabel de los Rios (of “The Diet Solution Program” fame). Her common sense approach to nutrition and healthy eating just completely resonates with me (if you haven’t read a couple of my articles about her here at the site, you can do so HERE at the Healthy Living Tips section of the site.)
Anyway, I got an email from Mike Geary (of “The Truth About Abs” fame, and another highly respected expert in fitness and nutrition), and he announced that he cowrote an EBook with Catherine Ebeling (an RN) called “The Fat Burning Kitchen.” As part of the package, he is including a 6-part “Fat Burning Nutrition” course on video by Isabel de los Rios!

The Diet Solution Program and Isabel De Los Rios
Anyone who knows me knows that I despise “fads.” I am a fashion drop-out, and pop-culture loser. I have never seen “Dancing with the Stars.” I have never see “American Idol.” And I don’t “do diets.” So, when I first saw a copy of “The Diet Solution” by Isabel De Los Rios that someone was raving about, I remained silent.
Actually, I rolled my eyes. Here we go again. How about you just eat less and move more? Hey, I’m certainly no skinny balinks by any means, but I’m active and I eat a lot of very healthy foods. I won’t get on that band-wagon. And, yes, now that I’ve spent the last few years sitting on my tuckus in front of this computer, I’m not one to talk about a lot of that until I can show you a photo of me weighing 25 pounds less than I do right now.
But that’s not the point of this post. I wanted to mention that I agreed to read The Diet Solution by Isabel De Los Rios – or at least skim it.
That’s when my eyes stopped rolling.
While I don’t agree with absolutely everything she mentions (she occasionally cites a particular doctor who I think is a hyped up “natural health guru” that I find a bit abrasive. But that’s just me.), my jaw dropped when I found her echoing a LOT of my own beliefs.
I could go on and on about THAT particular topic, such as my views on artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup and food dyes (I don’t think any of that stiuff should be allowed in food). Or, I could mention her thoughts on white flour and sugar (she doesn’t like it), or a myriad of other things.
What particularly struck me was her theory about metabolism type – for example, she feels that some people’s metabolisms work better if they eat more carbs than protein, more protein, or an equal balance of both.
I was also intrigued by her meal plan ideas, as well as the overall tone of the book.
So, after experimenting with a bit of what she discusses in her book, I wrote this article about The Diet Solution and Isabel De Los Rios and my own experience.
