Today the boy and I started the Mayo Clinic Diet, after he the Wii Fit called him “Obese” this weekend. I am pretty excited that we are going to be doing something healthy together.
We didn’t want a fad diet or anything, and this book just seemed really no-nonsense. It’s pretty cool.
Has anyone else read the book or tried the plan?

Hmm, I’ve never heard of it until now, but the Mayo Clinic is a famous hospital and clinic in MN. Here’s a link I found: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mayo-clinic-diet/MY01040

I haven’t heard of this diet, but going at it with a buddy seems to be the best way to stay on track – good luck!

Ilikepink, be careful
Mayo Clinic doesn’t endorse the Mayo Clinic Diet, they do endorse the Mayo Clinic Plan though. The link says Mayo Clinic Diet is a fad diet.

I highly recomend eating primal! Its a low carb, high fat, moderate protein way of eating. Take a look at marksdailyapple.com, it has a slew of information! Its not a diet, its a (delicious) way of eating that is not difficult to keep up. Who can resist bacon & steak!

Actually, Mayo did just publish the Mayo Clinic Diet book. I’ve only flipped through the book and the journal, but from what I could tell it’s a pretty straight forward and common sense diet plan put together by dieticians and physicians. There has been an online version of a diet, which Mayo has never endorsed. As long as you are following the book version of the diet, you should be fine.

@lkbphmd, this is what I am talking about.
@megan- I am not talking about the fad diet.
It’s this book, that the Mayo Clinic recently published.

Also, it’s more of a long term plan for healthier eating that a true “diet”.

healthier eating or losing weight? Why we always have to chose…?

@marywil1 – you don’t, you just have to be patient and do it right! In the long run, you’ll lose much more weight by eating healthy and building some muscle. Our society is just really used to “get thin quick” instant gratification-type thinking.
I haven’t read the Mayo Clinic Diet book, but I would hazard a guess that as the OP said, it’s going to be balanced and nutritious since it’s put out by the Mayo Clinic.
