Exercising is strongly encouraged by the Perfect 10 Diet. 3-4 times a week is excellent! Exercising combined with the diet will enhance your ability to lose weight.
Good luck and please keep us posted on your success.

I am from South Africa, and I am keen to buy the book, however, I would like to know whether it will affect my exercising. I excercise 3-4 times a week, to firm up etc, pretty much boot camp style. Hoping someone will be able to help me with this....Thanks!

Carefully read the Perfect 10 Diet book and make sure you understand the essential rules of the diet and how various foods and ingredients affect your hormonal balance. This will help you in making the right choices when you are on the road and have to eat out a lot.
Also, on page 207 of the Perfect 10 Diet book Dr. Aziz gives great advice on how to eat out the Perfect 10 way.
Good luck!

The book talks about making breakfast the biggest meal of the day however all the samples and/or recipes do not appear to have more food than other meals. Please help! Thanks--Maggie

Hi Wendy,
They are black beans in the picture, and yes, you can add some. If you are following the exact recipe above, in terms of amounts, then I would say 1/4 of cup would probably be the right amount. Hope that helps!

Is there black beans in the photo of this salad?? I know there is none in the recipe, but it looks like there is in the photo or black olives. not sure. I made my husband pick up some black beans because I thought they were in it, so would it hurt much to add some and if so , how much??? He's expecting them in it lol, and don't want to disappoint him. :D Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Wendi

I just bought the book and although I don't consider myself very "scientific" I have totally been enjoying the information. I've been on the diet for about 7 days and rarely do I find myself being hungry. I do feel like I have more energy and feel more emotionally in balance. Portion size is still an issue for me, particularly at night but am working at making those portions small but still satisfying. I'm just at the point where I'm trying some of the recipes. Thanks - Trudy

Hi Diane,
This is a great question! Let me quickly introduce myself, my name is Lyron and I am the head cheerleader and lead question-wrangler for the Perfect 10 community. You will see me on this site (and others) answering questions and generally cheering people on as they take on the challenge of mastering their diets and their lives! So, again, great question. Vinegar is one of the foods that Dr. Aziz recommends that you limit in your diet, but you can use sparingly (as in this recipe). I hope this helps! And I hope you are on your way to a Perfect New Year!

I bought the book, and while I am hopeful that this is a good diet to follow, I find the messages a bit confusing. For example, in this recipe, vinegar is used while in the book, vinegar is listed as something to avoid. ????HELP????? I want to be able to follow this diet but have trouble when I get conflicting messages.
