I must give credit to the author for helping me to even think about making a change in my life. Many people have talked to me over the years about the potential i'm wasting by not making healthier decisions. My wife read the Never Be Sick Again book and she enjoyed it so much I decided to check out this book. Talk about eye opening even as I started reading the book I started to notice how the just about every single meal that I eat I should be ashamed of. My current diet is total garbage and co ...more

Very Informational book, but I don't take all his words as sacred. But definitely I learned a lot from it.

Nothing really revolutionary here. I have read of these suggestions elsewhere. However, the book pulls a lot of suggestions together and this is a contribution. The Foreword states the thesis (Page ix): ". . .overweight is a disease that can only be cured by restoring overall good health."

What does this mean? The author argues that we need to address two key causes--deficiency of needed nutrients and addressing ingestion of toxic materials. As Francis says (Page 1): "The weight is merely a sympt

Yes good theory. I cant count the number of times I rolled my eyes or said "oh come on!" Filter your shower water? Really?

I find it difficult to recommend this book to anyone who wants a constructive plan to lose weight. There are too many places i.e. taking supplements where the author tells you how nearly impossible it to figure out ingredients, or doesn't make a distinction between white/wheat breads. He quotes science here and there but draws no real conclusions, and seems more interested in, selling his life style (nbfa) never be fat again.

This is a great nutrition common sense approach to eating. Not necessarily for those with a weight issue, as it applies to anyone who wants to improve their quality of life with fewer chemicals, processed food items, etc. The chemistry behind what we put in our mouths is amazing to read about. It has changed how I will look at food forever. If you are interested in keeping yourself and your family healthy it is a must read.

This book can be very overwhelming but very informational. I have to read it slowly so that I can absorb all the information.

Everything Raymond Francis writes makes complete sense. I just finished week one of his NBFA Lifestyle. I am finding it really easy to follow so far.

“Eating sugar in excess of what can be immediately burned causes it to be stored in the liver in the form of glucose (glycogen). Since the liver’s capacity is limited, a daily intake of refined sugar soon causes the liver to exceed its ability to store sugar, and the excess glycogen is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids. These are taken to every part of the body and stored as fat in the most inactive areas: the belly, the buttocks, the breasts, and the thighs.” 0 likes
