This was my first book that got me into the "raw movement." It changed my life, touching every aspect of my being. I cannot express my gratitude toward David Wolfe for creating this masterpiece. Anyone seeking a life of optimism, joy, and success on a personal level should own The Sunfood Diet Success System!
Wolfe's book contains 36 chapters of health transformation. Only ten or so of these specifically deal with the diet, while the book's key focus is on the mental transformation required. Each chapter has exercises at the end for the physical (diet) and mental changes. As recommended by David, keeping a journal and log of your diet will help with the transformation. The book begins with six chapters that ask you to take a look into your life. "Beliefs," "Goals," "Thoughts are Things," and "Faith" are a few of the chapters that promote your well-being on a spiritual level.
Starting with chapter 7, "The Sunfood Diet," the book introduces us to the diet of uncooked fruits, vegetables, and nuts. For those of you who have been wondering about this lifestyle, it's eating foods in their natural, unadulterated state. It is a step further than veganism, being called "raw-veganism." David thoroughly covers all aspects of eating raw. Items discussed are detoxification, food-combining, the SunFood Triangle (new pyramid), hybridized food, common questions, myths, and the wonders of a diet free of toxicity.
"Your idea of the world (what you believe the world is) manifests everything in your life. When you change your idea of the world, the world itself changes. Essentially, your mission isn't to set the world right, but simply to set yourself right. The world does not change, we change."
The Sunfood Diet Success System is filled with all of David's love. Every page is an inspiration. I can't begin to express my gratitude for the information that was revealed to me in this book. Its knowledge has continued to enlighten me through the last year. Inspirational, motivational; it's everything. Please get this book - do it for yourself. --Reviewed by Dan Jerke for vegetarianteen.com.
