5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book -- amazing results. Jan. 30 2006
After seeing Dr. McKeith's show on television, I decided to try cleaning up my way of eating. This book is amazing...she explains in clear detail what you should eat and why, and what you shouldn't eat and why. I have no plans to go quite as far as she advocates, but in the last two weeks I've totally revamped my eating habits, and it's been suprisingly easy to do. It's not a diet, it's a change in thinking. It works.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Health Book Ever March 15 2006
I have read many health books over the years and none have went into so much detail about the human anatomy. This book went into the depths of the human body from: teeth, to skin, kidneys,to lungs and nails. I was absolutely amazed at how Dr. Gillian Mckeith talked about what the different foods do for the human body. Especially if you have an ailment, she would suggest a certain food. For example, if you have dandruff she would suggest cutting back on products that have yeast or drink cranberry juice to clean the kidneys. I thought I was healthy before reading this book but I now am prepared and aware of more healthy eating choices. "You are what you eat" is a keeper and we are what we eat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a very nice Lady! Nov. 24 2010
By Ned Middleton TOP 100 REVIEWER
The author of this book and her work were completely unknown to me until very recently. The book came about after a recommendation from a dear friend who's advice I respect. At first glance, this work appears to be precisely the sort of book I need to read and understand. I say "understand" because I have not previously realised the importance of the different roles played by proteins, carbohydrates and so forth.

As one gets older, staying fit gets harder and, in spite of extensive exercise and a careful diet, excess weight no longer stays "off" the body like it used to. Consequently, I have come to the subject of understanding different aspects of food at the age of 60. Being single, I can produce whatever food I want to eat at any time and, as I say, this appears to be exactly what I need.

At the time of writing this review, Dr McKeith is appearing daily in a British TV programme called "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here." She is one of a small number of so-called celebrities - though most are completely unknown to me. Having watched a few episodes, the indelible impression left by McKeith is; Her constant screaming, verbal bullying, having far too much to say and even falsely "fainting" in order to avoid some task. It would appear the programme has also brought into question whether or not she is entitled to call herself "Doctor." Altogether, not a very nice lady at all.

That said, this book does seem to do what it says on the cover.

By Carrot
I really liked the book. It is very easy to read, does not overwhelm with tons of text, but still gives lots of useful information. Dr. McKeith advocates separate food group eating (carbs/protein/fruits), as well as usefullness of herbal remedies in forms of teas, food supplements and vitamins. She also stresses the importance of eating unprocessed natural foods. If you are looking for a recipe book, get the other "You Are What You Eat", which is totally devoted to that. This book should be read by everyone! Even if you will not stick to it 100%, I'm sure it will inspire you to make some changes in your diet which will lead you (and your family) to a better health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the Point May 24 2006
This book tells you like it is. This is what to eat and do. She talks about many problems that people may have and anyone who doesn't feel 100% healthy, should give this plan a try. It is easy to follow. The book is full of bright colors and pictures which makes it more enjoyable than just text. I bought this book after seeing Dr. McKeiths television program and have enjoyed it just as much. The You Are What You Eat Cookbook is good as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good information poor binding. Feb. 21 2010
I enjoyed reading this book, it provided a lot of basic information that was worth reading. If you have any knowledge about holistic nutrition it is not likely to provide you with new information. I would have preferred more recipes.
I won't be purchasing the recipe book since the binding of this book was so poor it fell apart within two weeks. I want a little better quality for my money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource and wake up call Sept. 29 2006
After going through most of this book, I find it to be a great resource. The author is very knowledgeable. However, please keep in mind that not everything written will work for everyone. It is intended as a guide. I have to admit that I disagree with the food combinations. From an East Asian descent, I eat rice (carbs) with meats (protein) and vegetables at the same time. That is just a part of our diet. But overall, I am pleased with my purchase, and although I pride myself in taking good care of myself, I realized after reading this that I could do even better. Each person should have a copy of this book in his/her library. a great addition to this book is Can We Live 150 Years.
