I have been leaning towards this diet for a while and I'm going to start this summer, once I have the time. It's based heavily on eating starches (potatoes, rice, corn, squash, beans/legumes) and any whole grains (bread, pasta, etc.) with additions of fruits and vegetables. No oil is permitted. It's actually a good rule. It is empty calories and it's all fat. So if you're looking for weight loss, you'll benefit from no oil. Also, if you suffer from acne, eliminating oil (and soy) will clear your acne in all places (chest, back, arms, face, etc.). Tofu, tempeh, and seitan are permitted (occasionally) as well as milk substitutes, but he advices just water. Mock meats are not permitted if you're strictly following the diet.
