I was very pleased with this purchase - much more so than I thought. I've purchased a good many books on food combining, but this was the most thorough by far. Before I really got through the bulk of the book, I had planned on contacting the author with a few questions I've had for a long time. The funny thing is, the more time I spent with the book, all of the answers were provided to the questions! Really awesome. Kathryn, you truly do rock!!! And thank you -- from someone whose health is important to her, and feels your support in the pages. It's obvious that you took special care to be as open as you are and in your sharing so much about food combining.

The problem with The Complete Book of Food Combining is that it is far from complete. Lots of material in this book is common knowledge to people who know about nutrition. I was most disappointed, however, by the lack of new information that helps to do food combining in a much less restrictive and more enjoyable manner. I read a book by Marilyn Diamond at least ten years ago that provided some very helpful info such as being able to combine berries with food w/o a problem and being able to combine some fruit with meals in some situations. This info was not included in the book, and I did not find anything new in this book that I didn't already know. In fact, I found it was less informative than Harvey and Marilyn Diamond's original food combining book, Fit for Life, that I read decades ago.

I have read several books on food combining, including the original one. This guide is much simpler and easier to follow for most of the program. But, it is not a diet if you are only looking to lose weight. It is a way of eating that enables your body to process food efficiently and more effectively absorb the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Once you are on this program, you will find that it is easy to follow and your general outlook and appearance will also improve as it clears toxins out of your system faster. I would caution you to drink a lot of water at first to help your body adapt to this new way of eating and thinking. There are still some sticking points in this program but it is up to you to make your individual adjustments.

I really enjoy this book. I got the Diamond's latest book first, 'Fit For Life', and it was also fantastic. Although it was very, VERY good, (& I still recommend it), reading this one, after, just made alot of what thte Diamond's were saying, easier to understand, I guess a bit more in 'my' kind of language! I love research, and don't consider myself slow to understand things, but I think this one is excellent. I liked the fact that it was alot less rigid, and although she gives you the 'ways' to food combine right away, she also gets detailed with why food is digested the way it is, and how to make it easier. I think that for now, I'm sticking with her books, and also Harvey and Marilyn Diamonds. Thank-you for the good reads!

This book shares a lot of information that is new to me, and I have read a lot of general nutrition books! It is easy to read and not preachy at all, unlike some nutritian books.

I ordered this book a few days ago and it really makes sense, trying out recipes as we speak, I'm hoping that it will improve my general health and skin, if I lose the weight I've wanted to shift too then that's an added bonus! :) would recommend buying this book to anyone new to food combining, it's amazing!

Good advice on digestive system workings, but never had it successful as a weight loss plan. Interesting read though still.

I found the writing style of this author easy to follow and conversational. A reader with little knowledge of nutrition might find this to be very helpful. As a person widely read about nutrition I found really only one page that contained precisely what I was looking for. It was good information and made the idea of food combining much easier than so many other authors but I would have liked more indepth information about food combining.
