Larry "Fats" Goldberg died years ago. Not as a direct result of the diet, though, afaik.
Ahem, I Americanized Mosley's* book for a publisher here. And cut down on the Brit-fashion-journalist gush from Spencer's parts of it. It was fun figuring out the US equivalents of some of the foods on his lists.
It doesn't strike me as quite as crackpot as another "diet" book I worked on around the same time. That one called for making "soup" from something like 1 cup of vegetables and a gallon of water, pureeing the whole thing, and eating only that for three weeks; new batches as you used it up, at least, not only one for the whole time. (Sneak is aware of one of the more disgusting suggestions in it.) Mosley's is more on the order of what I've been doing for a while now, and I do find it works. Would work better if I gave up all alcohol, but something has to make life worth living.
*I never bothered to see if he's related to the Nazi who married one of the Mitford sisters (Jessica?). Some things are better not known. But I did learn that this Mosely seems never to have actually practiced medicine, but has only used his training to be a BBC presenter and producer.
