Sonia, South Africa. 6 November 2014

Excellent resource and at an even better price!

Geoffrey, South Africa. 21 August 2014

Wonderful service. Ordered one day delivered the next day. Recommend the book for good health.

anita, South Africa. 2 April 2014

A life changing experience - have been banting since January 2014, and the results are beyond expectation. So much energy, no more unhealthy cravings, feeling on top of the world!

Christopher, South Africa. 8 May 2014

Great book. It will change how you eat without breaking the bank. This book is by a South African for South Africans and this is why we enjoy it so much. There are no hard to find ingredients or insanely expensive meals in here, instead you will find the majority of the items at your local supermarket.

What we liked is the introduction that clears up what this diet is all about and who this diet is for. The recipes are each on their own page with a picture of the meal on the opposite one. I rather like this as its easier to focus on the recipe you are working on,

If you only buy this to use as a guideline or to compliment your existing South African cookbooks, you will still get a lot of value out of it.

Brenda, South Africa. 16 April 2014

Excellent!! I've lost 7kgs in 5 weeks. It's worth the effort.

Heath, South Africa. 25 July 2014

Font is a bit difficult to read at a glance but it's well put together.

Lacks dessert options, which I've found are pretty tricky to do LC, but have found decent ones online.

Shaan, South Africa. 22 May 2014

Absolutely love this book! Recipes are easy to follow, delicious and the whole concept of eating this way makes so much sense. My whole family eat this way as well as my extended family and every member that needed to lose weight is losing. I have lost 5,3kgs in my first 3 weeks! We are all feeling much healthier, don't get hungry and have loads of energy. Great book and worth the buy! ***** :))))

Tarryn-ann, South Africa. 9 April 2015

Started reading the book and there are some interesting facts about healthy eating. Haven't tried the recipes yet, but going to try them soon.

Sandra Michelle, South Africa. 28 October 2014

Excellent value, excellent book :)

Louise, South Africa. 6 May 2015

Excellent book - my mother has lost astounding amount of weight on this diet too.

Keith, South Africa. 27 October 2014

Great book. If you want to loose weight this is the book for you. I'm a diabetic and since I followed the instructions in this book my doctor took me off insulin, permanently! Great buy!

HE, South Africa. 5 February 2015

This book is a life changer. I was a consultant to Heart Foundation for 15 years - and I am throwing my lot in with Tim. Go easy on dairy I discovered when I hit a wall. And coconut smoothie is obligatory so just get used to the idea.
Other than that this diet is a breeze.
The book is a work of art. The food photography is awesome. Good luck to all the food loving Banters out there. There is life while dieting!

Vanessa, South Africa. 31 March 2014

Five star rating. Excellent service getting my order and am over the moon with my new purchase. Cannot wait to start cooking.......thank you!

Jason, South Africa. 31 March 2014

Fantastic book! I'm a big fan of Tim Noakes, although I know others don't share my opinion. But even if you don't agree with him, this book is worth a read - his section regarding the science behind Banting is interesting, and I'm sure will make even the most ardent hater see some sense in the idea. The recipes are very useful, too. Well worth a read.

Kim, South Africa. 9 May 2014

It's a true revolution. The book is a great read with great advice and recipes. If this is a lifestyle you want to follow then this is the book you need to buy!

Marilize, South Africa. 5 December 2014

awesome recipes!

Maahir, South Africa. 29 October 2015

Excellent book layout with high definition pictures. Will definitely recommend this to anyone following the no carb way of life.

Estelle, South Africa. 1 July 2015

Excellent book to learn all about banting!

Johan, South Africa. 22 August 2014

We hope to join the revolution and be healthier. Time will tell...

Carol, South Africa. 17 July 2015

Great for unique ideas.

Rikke, South Africa. 16 April 2014

This book is amazing, even if you are not following a paleo diet (banting, low carb) though I'd be careful about the fat and calories consumed IF still eating carbs! It's a fantastic and very easy to follow recipe book and I love the way it's written, simple but yet so to the point. I have had the book for less than a week and already made 6 of the recipes, more than I have ever made out of any cook book.

Beverley, South Africa. 30 March 2015

I had healthy medical statistics when I bought into the Real Meal Revolution way. After 8 months, my cholesterol is now high risk and I have gained weight.

I guess I am part of the percentage the RML does not work for. It is very alarming to find myself in this position and trying to find a way back to good health.

Michael, South Africa. 29 August 2014

Not as comprehensive as I had expected nor does it seem to provide easily affordable, easily followed, even if seriously dull, alternatives. Recipes are excellent but, quite honestly, require a dedication beyond my ability. A good effort, but probably not something the average person can stay with for the long haul.

Helen, South Africa. 20 August 2014

Excellent book.

Franklin Colin, South Africa. 10 March 2016

Awesome book. I would recommend it to my family overseas.

Clinton, South Africa. 31 October 2014

awesome product, awesome service

Susan, South Africa. 20 November 2014

Extremely interesting, insightful and thought provoking.

Pieter, South Africa. 17 September 2014

Great book, delivery was within 2 days. Only reason for not giving 5 stars, no dessert recipes.

Lucy, South Africa. 29 April 2014

This is the most delicious way to lose weight! The book is very informative, and the recipes are quite easy. To get all the basic ingredients is a bit costly, but it replaces a lot of items you would normally buy, so after month 1 all costs should even out.

Rene, South Africa. 11 March 2015

I think it is a very interesting book.

Deon, South Africa. 22 July 2015

What surprised me is the lack of dogmatic statements in this book. It was as if the authors were discussing a lifestyle with me rather than preaching to me. Very informative. Well designed.

ADRIAN, South Africa. 23 April 2014

Awesome book......a must have!!!!!

Marieta, South Africa. 29 June 2015

A comprehensive guide to the banting diet

Adrian, South Africa. 9 May 2014

Great book

Niall, South Africa. 16 April 2014

Great book!

Jennifer, South Africa. 4 February 2015

I have used some of the recipes, as well as made a few changes to them, to suit my taste. I LOVE this book! The fact that I don't have to pay extra in the supermarkets for fat-free goods is an added bonus! And the weight loss and maintenance thereof does work. The only negative part is that the nut flours and sweeteners are quite a bit more expensive than regular.

Valerie, South Africa. 22 April 2014

A whole "new"(back to roots)way of looking at eating! Makes perfect sense.

Joanne, South Africa. 17 July 2014

An excellent read and has all the "technical' info you need as well as yummy recipes

Leigh, South Africa. 16 May 2014

Yummy recipes, you don't even miss the starch. And I lost 1.1kg's in 3 days

Doriane, South Africa. 26 September 2014

Great new ideas and an excellent concept. Delicious recipe ideas too!

Gary, South Africa. 25 August 2014

Great product - the journey has begun

Leone, South Africa. 17 July 2014

Excellent service!! Quick and fast respons to order and delivery!

Leanne, South Africa. 11 November 2014

Worth every penny and more - beautifully illustrated - and written - enjoying the recipes... truly a revolution.

Massimo, South Africa. 19 September 2014

Good informative read....

Dylan, South Africa. 20 May 2014

Very cool book and worth keeping on the order list!

Sanet, South Africa. 22 July 2014

Excellent book. Easy to read and the recipes are amazing. First time in my life that I cook out of a recipe book!

Ryan, South Africa. 4 February 2015

good insightful book...been doing this dieat for a year before getting the book,already lost lots of weight.

Andrew, South Africa. 16 April 2014

We bought the book as a Gluten Free cook book due to dietary requirements, and it is excellent! The fact that each recipe has a picture makes you want to try more and more. Brilliant buy!

Pieter, South Africa. 22 October 2015

A valuable book of advice for slimming but is it practical? Very difficult to follow exclusively.

Faiz Alie, South Africa. 5 September 2014

Awesome book! Highly recommended

Sharon, South Africa. 9 July 2014

Very interesting read & will recommend it to everyone who is interested in different food & diet concepts.

Warren, South Africa. 31 March 2014

Excellent book!

Danie, South Africa. 25 May 2014

Excellent book. Following this lifestyle I have lost 14kg and have now maintained my loss for just over a year. It is revolutionary in its thinking but once you get over the disbelief that eating saturated fat is good for you, the rest is much easier to "swallow".

Surina, South Africa. 1 July 2014

loving every page of it thus far. What a great combination of science (in understandable language for the mere mortal) and culinary delight. Absolute genius!

julie, South Africa. 22 April 2014

Great recipes and info

Anya, South Africa. 27 May 2015

Love it... it is just amazing how easy everything is when one understand... doing the RMR course online and it is just the best way of eating after four weeks I feel healthy and do not need to have B12 injection every second day my energy levels is so much better... an amazing book also

Steven, South Africa. 9 May 2014

AMAZING recipes (& evidence)!

Jenny, South Africa. 20 May 2014

Good book. Glad I bought it. Excellent service from Takealot.

Charmaine, South Africa. 1 July 2014

The book is every bit as good as I heard. The recipes are great.

deon, South Africa. 1 July 2014

Awesome recipe's with minimum ingredients.

Kirchner, South Africa. 10 March 2015

After I quit smoking I started picking up quite a bit of weight. Since following the guidelines from the book and also the website, I have already begun to lose significant weight after two weeks!

Celeste, South Africa. 19 August 2014


Joanne, South Africa. 24 March 2017

Superbly informative as well as easy to follow recipes. This book has actually changed my life!

Angie, South Africa. 28 August 2014

Excellent service from takealot. awesume book

Brenda, South Africa. 1 September 2014

Easy to read and extremely interesting!

David, South Africa. 27 August 2014

Good easy to read book with some really good recipes. I like the Green; Orange; Red lists, which ensure an easy reference guide when shopping.

Gerald, South Africa. 28 August 2014

I received the book a week ago and have found it very informative. I have tried a few of the recipes and they are very good. All in all a very good buy.


Chantel, South Africa. 10 December 2014

This book is fantastic, everyone in my household needs to shed some extra weight and this has made it easy. We love the meals and the green/orange/red lists has made it easy to shop.
Our GP recommended it as he has lost 24kg in a 5 month period using this book. We started a month ago and we have all lost about 6kg each. I am sure this will become a way of life for us now.
Thank you to all the authors for taking the time to develop this book.

Roger, South Africa. 3 July 2015

Great book...great science....makes far very good and seems to work.

|Margie, South Africa. 25 September 2014

Practical.common sense approach to dieting, makes perfect sense!!!

Melanie-Ann, South Africa. 25 September 2014

Excellent book.

Mlungisi, South Africa. 24 November 2014

Love the book. It's simple to understand, doesn't have too much scientific jargon (just a little bit!) and of course if what's in the book doesn't work for you, try something else. The recipes and food visuals are also a good addition to the book.

bruno, South Africa. 27 July 2015

love the recipes

Bonnie, South Africa. 22 January 2015

Extremely amazing new way to look at a good healthy lifestyle for me and my family!!! Even the kids enjoy it, and we have lots loads of weight in the 1st week already!

Monique, South Africa. 17 July 2015

Awesome recipies! Knowing you can eat fatty foods (especially bacon), makes it worthwhile!

linda, South Africa. 10 December 2014

was looking for more basic recipes

Ted, South Africa. 10 December 2015

I have been interested in LCHF diets for many years. However, reading the latest science clearly shows that there are far healthier ways to eat (whole foods, plant-based) which Noakes et al. completely ignore in this book. If you are interested in your _long-term_ health I cannot recommend this book.

Linda, South Africa. 30 March 2015

Easy to read and understand with great recipes to inspire you.

Christine, South Africa. 3 June 2015

As good as I expected it to be

Engela, South Africa. 16 January 2015

Delivery was on time and the book is worth every cent!!!

Lara, South Africa. 21 January 2015

Better than I expected!!!!

S, South Africa. 9 February 2015

Delicious recipes and easy to prepare.

Mohammad, South Africa. 22 October 2015

Brilliant book. Its more than a book on banting, it comes loaded with recipes that will help you on your journey. An essential in every kitchen.

ntheki, South Africa. 10 February 2015

i would really love to have this book

Heather, South Africa. 24 February 2015

Very happy with the book and contains the information I was looking for.

Anabel Giddy, South Africa. 25 February 2015

It really works! Excellent

Matsidiso, South Africa. 14 December 2015

I am enjoying the book, so much to lean and meals to prepare without too much effort, love it

Janine, South Africa. 21 June 2017

This is a great book. Nice recipes and I will definitely be using it as a balanced diet.

helen, South Africa. 1 September 2015

At long last, a way of living not just another diet plan. It was no stress at all to do the mind shift and the big bonus is that I do not have cravings and do not have those dreadful hunger pangs. The food is absolutely delicious and I got so inspired that I started my own vegetable garden!

Claudia, South Africa. 8 March 2016

Fantastiese boek saam raising super heros. Nou 'n jaar op banting en ek kyk nie terug nie. Af van alle chroniese medikasie vir artritis en dit het soos 'n nuwe begin gevoel 'n kans op 'n tweede lewe. Dankie Tim Noakes jy bly baie mense se hero.

Klara Therese, South Africa. 14 May 2015

Excellent recipes

Chantal, South Africa. 10 July 2015


shirley, South Africa. 30 March 2016

Awesome book, user friendly and informative.
The way of eating really works for weight loss
would recommend it to anyone who needs to shed a few

Sameer, South Africa. 25 November 2016

Lost 15kg in 3 months. Thank you Mr Noakes!

Brilliant book, not only does it include recipes but also goes through the science and history of the human diet, as well as why our current diets went so far off course.

Carol, South Africa. 8 February 2016

This is not a balanced diet and therefore I would not follow it. The lack of fruit in particular is concerning.

Linda, South Africa. 2 February 2016

Every recipe I have tried from this book has been amazing. One month in (banting) and I am already seeing results. Highly recommended.

Glen, South Africa. 19 July 2016

So far its working for me, the recipes also give some great ideas.

The Food Bible, South Africa. 16 April 2016

Quite simply, the only cook book you will ever need - I (potentially blasphemously) call it The Bible!!!

Rachel, South Africa. 7 July 2017

recipes are great

Liz, South Africa. 1 August 2016

THIS IS NOT A DIET. It is a radical game changer and will influence the way you think about food forever.

Janice, South Africa. 29 November 2016

Lovely quality book with lots of recipes and photographs and very easy to use. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in Banting.

Lyn, South Africa. 1 December 2016

Easy to read, beautifully laid out with mouthwatering, easy to prepare recipes. Good enough to be a coffee table book!

Simone, South Africa. 16 November 2016

Great book! Highly recommended!

David, South Africa. 5 July 2016

This book has changed my life and as someone that was always against the banting programme the scientific evidence is simple and logical.

Johanvdm, South Africa. 8 December 2015

Great product! lost 15kg in about 6 months. great lifestyle change.

Derek, South Africa. 21 December 2016

not well documented.anyone who sets out to be persuaded that this diet will really work for you will be horribly disappointed. good recipes and pics

Excellent recipes and great read altogether

ASSUNTA, South Africa. 20 January 2017

A brilliant buy ! Besides the information on Banting which is factual and concise, the recipes are world class.

Amanda, South Africa. 9 September 2016

Really nice recipes in this it!!!!

Jaco, South Africa. 7 July 2016

Very good overall, only negatives for me would be the damage sustained around the box. Been seeing allot of these deliveries lately.

Francois, South Africa. 13 January 2016

Very good informative book with relevant recipes. Tested a few up to now and all very nice. The book itself is very good.

Martem, South Africa. 1 November 2016

This book is written in an easy to read manner. The chapters are short and concise. The recipes are easy to make with not too fancy ingredients.
