There is only one concept to grasp and only one action to take: Eat more living food than dead food. The simplicity of this message has eluded people up to now. In fact, it may seem oversimplified. Because of past frustrations and disappointments, people have come to believe that losing weight is complicated, difficult and expensive. Truth be told, all that is required to ...more

I learned a lot from this book. I've tried implementing some of the suggestions and have noticed an energy increase. The author talks a lot about when to eat various foods to help your body use them correctly and get the most out of them. For example - fruit for breakfast without anything else so your stomach can digest it and get immediate energy from it. This is one of those books that is full of very useful information, but I will need to apply the information a little at a time.
I read this hoping to learn something about nutrition and the raw food movement. Instead I ended up wading through CHAPTERS of rhetoric waiting for him to make a point. When he finally did make a point, he backed it up with so much ignorance and pseudo science that I actually got mad. at a book. Like spitting mad. Anyway, it gave me a good smoothie recipe...
Interesting point of view and he has a lot of knowledge. Some of the facts are too contradictory to my believs for me to fully accept plus I don't want to follow blindly every new book i read so i need to digest all this for some time. But he has some points and even taking just the grain from it may proove to be beneficial.

Recommends it for: not anyone
Recommended to Ruth by: original book fit for life
That one should eat 50% raw food and 50% cooked food. Avoid animal products and cut down or out the hard cheeses. Very informative on nutrition uplifting and renewing desire to stick with this program on a consistant basis.
I am so in love with this book. It's all about food combining which.... MAY.... free me from having to do fasting cleanses twice a year. I'm gonna give it a try and see.
Very interesting book. Really made me think about the foods I eat and in the ways that I eat them. So far I have discover a few things true for myself.
