This book is well written, but...

It assumes that those who will use the diet and exercise offered within have no severe food allergies, that they can walk and stand, and are able to eat most foods.

I cannot. I have numerous food allergies, and easily 1/2 of the food items I cannot eat. Of the foods left, many I cannot stomach the taste of...literally. Things like sweet potatoes and yogurt make me projectile vomit. The spices suggested, such as curry, red pepper spices, ginger; I am allergic to.

I am in a wheelchair and unable to walk or stand, so most of the exercises will not work for me.

So, with all that, why did I give this book 4*'s? Because, I am aware that my circumstances are atypical of most readers of this book and should not be the main influence of my review. However, it is the very fact that the author does not address situations where a reader may be unable to do the large number of exercises available, or eat many of the foods listed which keeps it from receiving a 5* review.

What is available I can see would be beneficial to the majority of this authors book. I felt he did a good job of stressing you need to stay in contact with your Dr. Regarding your meds. Many of the books I have read on lowering your blood pressure, some written by supposed health care providers did not do this, and some suggested actually stopping meds!

If you can stand and walk, and are able to eat a variety of foods, this book could prove very helpful to you. Even with my problems, I found nuggets of information that will be very helpful in the future, as I continue to try to bring my BP down and lose weight.

I received an ARC from Net Galley to review in exchange for an honest review. ( )
