Book Review: The Best Diet in the World

  1. Many people regularly compete with excess weight. They try a diet, but almost always revert to their old diet and the weight loss is not permanent. The authors of "The Best Diet in the World" promise - the headline gives it away - the best diet in the world.

  1. A diet where you do not have to count calories, you can eat as much as you want and you do not need special products or foods. It is about a change in your lifestyle and the cookbook will help you with that.


  1. The best diet in the world is based on the largest scientific research on nutrition and weight loss: DiOGenes. From the Netherlands, Maastricht University and Wageningen University were involved in this worldwide research. The scientists compared the most common waste methods with each other. According to the researcher, crash diets only work for a short time and the advice of the Nutrition Center does not help sufficiently with obesity. Only by eating good carbohydrates (with a low glycemic index) and high protein can you stay slim even after weight loss. That's why Danish researcher Arne Astrup wrote The World's Best Diet and nutritionist Christian Bitz provided recipes.


  1. Two phases form the starting point of the book. For the first four-week phase, the book contains weekly menus with which you 'learn' to eat a lot of protein-rich and whole-grain products. In addition, a large part of the meals consists of half of fruit and vegetables, a quarter of whole grain and a quarter of protein-rich products. Most people eat more carbohydrates than proteins and that ratio should change from 1 to 3 to 1 to 2. Suitable products that contain a lot of protein include seafood, fish and lean meat, low-fat dairy products and lentils, peas and beans. In the first phase you can lose about 8 kilograms. Within phase 2 it is the intention that you switch from diet to a lifestyle. You have to learn to stand on your own two feet and keep eating good carbohydrates and protein yourself.


  1. Thanks to its scientific background, The Best Diet in the World is a very informative book. The basis of the 'diet' is clearly explained, common fat excuses are debunked and the book also contains all kinds of interesting background information about, for example, eating with your senses. The glycemic index (GI, measure of the rise in blood sugar) is an important element in the lifestyle change. The book therefore contains an overview of products with a high and a low GI and also all kinds of tips on how to easily replace carbohydrates with a high GI with carbohydrates with a low GI. For example, al dente pasta and potatoes have a lower GI than cooked ones and the more grains, seeds and beans are still whole, the lower the GI.


  1. Of course, the recipes should not be missed. Because how do you make sure you get those good carbohydrates and proteins in a tasty way? For example, by having breakfast with a fruit boost and a soft-boiled egg or oatmeal with blueberries and hazelnuts. For lunch you can enjoy a wholemeal pita with tuna and bean sprouts or a sandwich with a fried egg. For in between, the cookbook contains tasty recipes for oatmeal cookies, muesli bars and dips for raw vegetables or fruit. You can end the day with tiger prawns with fried rice or meatballs with scrambled eggs, rays and cabbage and French toast with rhubarb and chocolate for dessert. In short: the recipes show that the best diet in the world can be quite tasty. Good luck Yet this 'diet' is not a panacea. The key to success really lies with yourself. Lifestyle changes take time and effort. You have to keep it up. The recipes also demand a lot from you. They are not necessarily complicated, but they take more time than a ready-to-use product. The theoretical basis of The Best Diet in the World is a nice starting point and it is also a very nice book to leaf through. Arne Astrup is Professor of Dietetics at the University of Copenhagen and one of the DDiOGenes researcher. Christian bitz is a nutritionist and regularly appears on the Danish TV program Good Morning Denmark. The book contains a foreword by prof. Dr. Marleen van Baak who led the research in the Netherlands.
