There's a lot you probably don't know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha was thin. And before he became the "Enlightened One", he was a pampered prince named Siddhartha. He tried starving himself in his quest for inner peace, but found that extremes brought him no closer to enlightenment. Instead, he sought a "middle way" between unhealthy overindulgence and unrealistic abstinence. The instructions he gave his monks about eating, more than 2,500 years ago, were surprisingly simple.
Fast forward to today. Cutting-edge scientific research tells us something Buddha knew all along: it's not what you eat, but when you eat that's most important. You don't need to follow the latest fads or give up your favorite foods. You just need to remember a few guidelines that Buddha provided - guidelines that, believe it or not, will help you lose weight, feel better, and stop obsessing about food. Sure, Buddha lived before the age of cronuts, but his wisdom and teachings endure, providing us with a sane, mindful approach to eating.
With chapters that ponder questions like "What would Buddha drink?" and "Did Buddha do Crossfit?", Buddha's Diet offers both an attainable and sustainable strategy for achieving weight-loss nirvana.

"glad I found this book in my Lion's Roar mag"
Great book to listen to. I lost 4lbs in 6 days just by eating before 7 pm.
"return to effective simplicity"
you could probably summarize this book on a sheet of paper, however the additional depth was was much appreciated as i go forward to tell others.
"Will definitely apply"
Wow, I love the middle way. I I will definitely put this into practice. I feel it's something that I could actually do for the rest of my life and I love the practical Theory of living. It was a great, simple introduction to Buddha's life. Highly recommend.
"Wrong reader, wrong attitude"
Having a Buddhist read this
Not read this story
Exaggerated; too much emphasis when it is not necessary. Difficult to hear the story because it's difficult to listen to her overemphasizing the words, tone, story.
The story of Buddha is ancient and these authors are making up a story to sell their book. It's ethically unacceptable to equate Buddha with any dietary regimen. Shame on you! Greed got the best of you!
