A diet consisting mostly of bread, olive oil, and bananas, and raw vegetables is evaluated
Book Review: The Shangri-La Diet
I’m giving this one a qualified recommendation. About a third of it is really good. That part contains the recommendations to supplement your diet with sugar water and olive oil, explaining how and when. Unfortunately, the remaining two-thirds attempts to explain how and why the plan works. That part is mostly pseudo-scientific nonsense. The space would have been better used telling readers what to avoid in the American supply — something that is much easier to do when you follow the author’s recommendations. As diet books go, this one will do less harm than most. And the book is well-written, so even the nonsense is an entertaining read.
I don’t take this list of supplements religiously anymore, but I took them regularly when I was recovering from the effects of gluten intolerance that had gone undetected for so long.
