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.
The UltraMind Solution by Dr, Mark Hyman is brilliant exposition that shows how you treat “mental” illness and “energy” imbalances by addressing seven major subsystems of the body. A comprehensive program that is founded on (and gives clear explanations of) the “systemic science” that determines how well and how happily we live.
This book, written by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, is highly recommended for anyone interested in health and fitness — although this review contains a couple of caveats worth noting.
Death by Supermarket: The Fattening, Dumbing Down, and Poisoning of America , by Nancy Deville is an important work that summarizes many of the problems with the American food supply, and takes corporations to task for creating and perpetuating the problem. Here’s the 5-star review I posted at Amazon.
