In addition to drinking "Green Smoothies" daily (see, "Green For Life" by Victoria Boutenko), I eliminated sugar and wheat products from my diet and that was the key that helped me make it through a day without the mandatory 2-3 hour nap that I'd been taking for the previous 7 years!
I've read about the Atkins Diet, the Blood Type Diet, Vegetarian Diets, Macrobiotic Diets, All Raw Food Diets, etc. How can any one diet be right for all people?
This book shows you how to find the foods that are nourishing and energizing for YOUR body.
Food allergies (or intolerances) can cause a host of symptoms from weight retention to low energy to headaches to irritability (and more).
I agree with the previous review. This book could change your life if the advice (do an elimination diet to discover the foods that are not good for you and then don't eat those foods) was actually implemented!
As an adult I started having most of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. This included numb hands, barbershop syndrome and extreme difficulty standing and walking. It was much worse on Saturdays and I wondered if going out to eat on Friday nights was causing my problem. I figured out that the corn oil in the restaurant food was the villain and my symptoms went away. Later I found a book reporting that about 70% of MS is greatly improved by removing improper oils from the diet.
These are just two examples from my life. This book explains the problem and how to find out what foods might be problems for you. Removing the foods that poison you may be the most important health factor. Even more important than removing processed foods, eating healthy foods, exercise, posture, fresh air, sunshine or any of the other very important health principles.
Having this information is vital to people with health problems.
The biggest thing that stood out for me was he mentions - it's not the quantity of the food, but what are you having every day... and i thought oh what do i find the hardest to give up that i have every day... so i just thought, toast in the morning, pasta, and milk. HA! what a shock.. i dropped ten pounds of Bloat in a week. All of a sudden i realized I had a keen addiction to starchy things i had been denying, and the milk just in tea/coffee was bloating me as well. Who knew? so have been eating stuff and seeing how i feel. If i bloat - gain a few pounds (he mentions takes about 4 days for substance to get out of your body) - ya, it takes a few days for the bloat to go away.
I am starting to pinpoint things that do that, and I tell ya, it is really surprising what does and what doesn't. With stopping some of these bloaty foods, the cravings stopped right away too - except for the floury pasta stuff, which i suspect is just habit, because everywhere i looked it was like visual hypnosis - every ad on tv, everywhere people eating floury starchy things -eeeek! took me about 6 weeks to really get over all this "being surrounded by starch" mentality.
I gave a copy to my friend and she says oh ya, that means i have to stop eating bla bla bla.. noooo just read it and see what it is for you because everyone is different... everyone is unique..
He also talks about threshold of what a body can take, as well. Allergies and stress may not show because your body is handling it, but when you go over the threshold of what your body can handle, then the ailments etc appear. I haven't had the attention span to read the whole book, but am doing my own self discovery with food from this book.. considering i have been dieting since i was 16 (with miserable results - and now i know why!!!! finally!)... ya, it's been a lifesaver... better now than never.. thank you doctor!!
And the foods most people can eat, I can not. (I had blood work drawn to find out my allergens/sensitivities)
You will learn how to determine yours though, and how to help "clear" you body of them.
This book is definitely for people who are really interested in making the changes required to feel better again. And that takes time, patience, and a willingness to change.
