Though a diet promising permanent weight loss by eating hydrophilic (“water-loving”) foods sounds like another fad, nutritionist Gilbert’s plan turns out to be quite sane: eat fruits and vegetables, and cut back on sugar, alcohol, and processed foods. What sets Gilbert’s plan apart is her emphasis on soluble fiber, which soaks up water in your intestines and keeps blood sugar steady and hunger at bay, while promoting good digestive health. Because of this emphasis, the book’s 12-week program may seem complicated. Dieters will have to remember that onions and zucchini are “high-hydro,” while eggplant and cauliflower are simply “hydro-friendly.” However, Gilbert’s can-do attitude is infectious, and interviews with her clients make the process more relatable. Those wary of chia seeds and agar will find plenty of recipes for inspiration. Gilbert’s sample meal plans allow for plenty of “freebies,” such as a hearty “Good Decisions Soup” and vanilla chia pudding to satisfy sweet tooths. Readers will appreciate helpful chapters on the importance of decision-making and commitment; Gilbert stresses that weight loss is as much about mind set as it is about diet.
