As an athlete, Elkhaim found that the diet he was consuming, which was high in fruits, vegetables, and protein, was not providing him with the energy he expected. His studies in Holistic Nutrition led him to discover a new way of viewing how the human body processes food. As a fitness and nutrition coach, he developed a diet based on whole foods that eliminates many of the toxins that are so detrimental to our health.
Eating for Energy begins with quite a bit of scientific information. Elkaim explains how diffferent foods interact with the human body, breaking the foods down into their smallest particles. He demonstrates why some foods were not meant for human consumption, and how the chemical makeup of certain foods is altered during the cooking process, negatively affecting the nutritional value.
Elkaim's reasoning makes perfect sense. He explains why some people who believe themselves to be nutritionally fit are still plagued with health concerns and excess body fat. He also explains why someone who appears to be physically fit may not necessarily be healthy.
He provides a section specifically for athletes who may require a high caloric intake. There is a 12-week meal plan for transitioning to a whole foods diet.Read more ›
Most of the book is recipes. I haven't read it yet, but hope to perservere in getting my money back. (Not the easiest thing in the world when you buy one of these things through ClickBank.) Even if he's right and this will send your energy over the moon and contains info not available anywhere else, it's still not worth it.
Oh yeah, and let's not forget that if you're fool enough to buy it, you have to withstand three (or was it four) over-the-top deluges of offers to add to your order. Which is still a better way to go than paying almost the same $47 and getting one paperback book here. The author's ads look like you're getting a book too, until you order it and see the instant download button.
On the other hand, I do love Amazon.com very much.
He provides several recipes and details on specific products and supplements.
If you are coming from a fast food lifestyle and are casually considering making some changes for the better this information could overwhelm you as it is a step up from simply eating healthier and/or organic. However, it is a valuable tool if you really want to change your future health and your life.
I read it in a pdf format and found the it easy to read.
This book was a game changer for me. I have learned how an organic and raw diet can affect your energy level, lifestyle and long term health. I will never move to a total vegan diet, but I have reduced the amount of red meat in my diet significantly and started to add other raw based green vegtables, legumes and nuts. In addition, with the recipes in the back, its easy to create fun, unique and tasty meals. I highly recommend this book.
And it's quite obvious, "Eating for Energy"; the RAW foods I ate DID give me more energy!
I also have not been sick in ~2 years and it explains the whole thing; about why eating RAW foods is better for You!
I give this book a beyond Excellent rating!
