I haven't tried the diet myself but from his website it looks very veggie and legume heavy. I can see how you could eat a lot and feel satisfied. I have purchased his pre-packaged foods from the grocery store before for quick lunches and backpacking meals. They're pretty filling but super pricey and not seasoned at all. Like, super duper bland. I'd probably add a lot more spices to the recipes. It seems like it could be under seasoned, which would make following it unsustainable for me. The other thing I'd worry about is getting enough calories. If I were to do this diet I'd plug everything into My Fitness Pal and make sure I wasn't under eating.
You might be interested in the Forks Over Knives recipes, since they're also really focused on low calorie whole foods. The last time I was actively trying to lose weight I made most of my dinners from Appetite for Reduction, most of my breakfasts and lunches from Forks Over Knives, and I was doing aerobic activity 2-3 times/week (45 minute spinning class). I also calorie counted, even though I know you said it doesn't really work for you now.
