I know Dr. Matsen personally and have seen with my own eyes the remarkable good work he has been doing for humanity.
He is an undiscovered jewel! This book is worth its weight in gold!!
This book is truely incredible. Its worth its weight in gold for the recipes alone! And like everyone else said, I learned an awful lot about how the body works. After a year in Afghanistan, at the age of 51, being a female and carrying all that weight, I came home 1.5 inches shorter. Needless to say, I had a lot of aches and pains, especially when I started back at my desk job, cause my muscles atrophied. My hips felt like they were shoved right into my pelvic bones, and xrays showed I lost a lot of cartledge all over my body. So, this diet and good old fashioned exercise cleared up ALL MY PAIN. And I figured out that I was also allergic to sulfates. The book has you give up sugar, caffiene, perservatives, yeast, alcohol, in the first 2-3 week diet, and cuts down a lot on salt. So, I have to admit, I cheated a little with wine on the weekends, and hence my hips and lower back hurt a lot those days!! So I figured out that I can not have sulfates. So, if I do cheat with a little wine from time to time, I now know that I can only drink wine with NO sulfates, or very little... And this seems to make a huge difference. Also due to the diet, my blood pressure came WAY down. As we have high blood pressure in my family, and Im at that age, where it was starting to show up. My Dr. told me that if I didnt control it, she would put me on meds. So by following the diet in this book, I went from 145/95 to 128/81, in just 2 1/2 weeks !!! THANK YOU AGAIN Dr. Matsen, and thanks to Jennifer Beals for her Forward in Eating Alive II !! Her forward about her Lupis going away is what got me interested in doing the diet. This diet changed my life, and I will be doing my best to eat like this the rest of my years. Very Respectfully, ENS Jean Law USNR & Department of Veterans Affairs IT Specialist.
I've tried a number of different elimination diets to figure out the problems with my stomach. While I still don't know the problem, Jonn Matsen's Food Combining techniques are the ONLY thing that so far eliminates my problem. Despite how old this book is, I think all the information within is accurate and the info is timeless. I read the book in just a few days as it's a quick read.
It's not the best, most comprehensive book out there, but if you're having digestive issues I believe this is the best place to start.
