Be aware: this is only the goal of this diet, not necessarily its outcome. Results vary from person to person. Consult your doctor or dietician before starting this (or any other) diet.
The goal of Tamara (general practitioner) is that you don't follow a diet anymore, but that you start eating healthier and that you do what suits you best. In the Dutch book ‘Eet beter in 28 dagen' (Eat better in 28 days) Tamara gives tips & tricks on how to do this.
On the homepage you can compare 'Eat better in 28 days' with different diets.

Tamara says that many people don't succeed in living and eating healthier because they start doing things they don't like, such as going to the gym reluctantly, run every evening or quit drinking for a month. If you want to maintain a healthier lifestyle you need to start doing things that you do enjoy.
The book describes what is healthy and what is 'normal', and how these two things do not always correspond. The book gives practical tips on how to deal with this, among other things. In addition, the book contains stories from Tamara's patients.
The book is full of Tamara's weekly menus (enough for 28 days) and recipes. The recipes are low in carbohydrates and quick to make.
To get a healthier lifestyle, it is important to get enough exercise. There is no point in just improving your eating style. Choose something you like, so you can keep it up.
This diet is a low-carb diet. You can find more low-carb diets here.
The Dutch book is called 'Eet beter in 28 dagen' (Eat better in 28 days). There is no English translation available (yet).

As you see fit
I recently participated in the 10-day food experiment of Nutrition Lives with a number of colleagues. This is a part of Physician en Lifestyle that this doctor set up. Delicious, nutritious recipes that are low in carbohydrates. Clear diet, clear vision, proven effect. Fits well with overweight and diabetes. Goes along with the trend of homemade conscious food.
With the professional help of a dietitian it should be easier to reach your goals. Please contact a dietician in your area or talk to a doctor before starting any diet.
Please take note that most diets do not have a scientific basis.
Consult your doctor or dietician before starting a diet, especially if you have a chronic condition like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lung disease or kidney disease.
If you think you might have an eating disorder (like anorexia or bulimia), it is important to look for professional help. Contact your (house) doctor or find help elsewhere. Here you can find a list of several websites that can provide (online) help. These sites also provide information for people that know someone with an eating disorder.
