Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

Roger Troy Wilson weighed 425 pounds and had a 5-foot waist. He had given up on losing weight and prayed that he would die and go to Heaven.

After fifteen years of experimenting with different foods and eating patterns, he discovered how to actually have fun losing weight easily---almost the complete opposite of most diets. He lost 230 pounds and 24 inches from his waist.

Today Wilson has maintained his weight loss for years. “You do not need to exercise or count carbs. You can do it without portioning and shakes and chemicals,” says Wilson. In Let's Do Lunch, he reveals:

  • the dumbest thing we all do that keeps us from losing weight
  • which “non-fattening” foods are actually fattening
  • special ways to eliminate cravings
  • where to go and what to get when you want to eat something quick


Roger Troy Wilson lost over 200 pounds by developing a very unusual diet plan. He believes that the key to losing weight is to eat everything you want, but make better choices. Some will say that this could be essentially called a fruit diet, as the author recommends that you consume astronomical amounts of fruit to satisfy your cravings for sweet foods.

The diet plan is really quite simple. Eat lots of fruit for breakfast. Eat lots of protein at lunch time, which is your big meal of the day. Then eat as much fruit as you can eat for your evening meal. Here is a quote from the book: "Why no protein at night? Think about it: Which is better, lying dormant in bed all night with only fast-digesting, non-fattening foods to metabolize, or lying there with your stomach full of slow-digesting foods that will turn mostly to fat in a dormant body?"

While the author had some interesting theories and some really good sounding recipes included in this book, I am still not convinced that this is a healthy diet. I love fruit, yet the thought of consuming all those natural sugars does have me concerned as well. My husband is diabetic, and I wonder what this diet plan would do to his blood sugars.

I might try some ideas and recipes that were covered in this book, but as a complete diet plan, I am still a bit skeptical about it.

I received a free copy of this book through Book Sneeze, in exchange for my honest review.
