Thumbs up Montignac Diet anyone?

Hi, I'm new to the forum!

I was wondering if anyone is following the Montignac diet? It's a reduced carb diet that relies on food combining and eating low glycemic index foods - quite similar to the Suzanne Sommers diet I believe...

I've had great success on this diet in the past. In fact, I used it to lose weight before my wedding! After a few weeks, my cravings for sugar and junk food went away - it was pretty amazing.

Any takers?

I will post a summary of the main points of the diet in a bit...

So here's a quick snapshot of the diet taken from the Telegraph website (I can't post links yet)

What is it?

This is a low glycemic-index (GI) diet for people who love their food, and is the latest offering from Michael Montignac - the founding father of GI dieting.
It is based on two eating plans: one to lose weight, and the other to keep it off.

Sample menu

The menus give two main meal options: either protein and fat, or high-fibre carbohydrate. Lunch should be the main meal of the day.

Breakfast: herbal or fruit tea; oatcakes topped with non-fat cheese; and sliced apples.
Lunch: cherry tomato and basil soup; chef salad of cheese, ham, boiled egg, tomatoes and olive oil; and a few squares of dark chocolate. Optional snack: almonds and hazelnuts.
Dinner: vegetable soup; wild mushroom ramekins with rocket salad; chopped apples with fromage frais.

Default montignac diet

Hi Lili,

I can see that it's been a while since your last post. If you do read this - I have had wonderful success eating according to Montignac, even though I am a vegetarian.

Fell off the waggon a couple of times, got back on the horse in January and have lost 20 pounds so far. Let me know if you have any questions about Montignac.

Steady on!

I am doing Weight Watchers, but using the older Momentum plan points. I'm still having trouble getting the scale to go down. I have PCOS and am insulin resistant, so am starting to investigate low-carb diets.
I had a copy of Dine out and lose weight by Montignac that I bought several years ago. Dug it out, and reread it more carefully this time. I have ordered some books from amazon.
There isn't a lot out there on the web, at least not here in the States. I was pleased to see that there was at least this mention of it in this forum.
I'm not sure I can do a strict Phase 1, but can certainly incorporate a lot of his ideas into my meal plan.
An experiment in progress...
Anyone out there?
