It is common knowledge that illness and obesity are plaguing North America in frightening degrees. We know it must be related to foods we are ingesting, but with so much conflicting information on the market, usually tainted by self-serving advertisers, it can be difficult to choose a diet that is truly wholesome and beneficial to our health. Yuri Elkaim's Eating for Energy provides some encouraging information about a "back to basics" approach to eating that just may save lives.

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.

Eating for Energy: Transforming your life through living plant-based whole foods

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.

I have read a few books on Raw Foods and found this to be one of my favorites. It is clear and to the point, with good recipes and good sense.

I just bought this from the author online to get what was meant to seem like a huge pile of free bonus material. Turns out the e-book is 99 pages and the "add-ons not included in the original book" are the rest of the hefty-sounding 272 pages. The values are even more nuts than most e-books. Nutrition for Athletes is ten pages, a $99 value!!! And that's not the worst! He actually assigns a $100 value to his one-hour TV interview! And you get on his mailing list, a $500 value!

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.

I started switching from animal protein to veggies about 2 years ago. Then about 3 months ago, I was recommended this book by a friend. Since I have started switching over to RAW foods, I have been physically happier, which makes Your mental state happier as well!

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!

A friend recommended this book to me. I've been hesitant to read it or make too many changes to my diet because I'm happy with my health and my weight. I am SO GLAD I read this book. It has changed many opinions and misconceptions I had. I definitely have more energy now and I reference the recipes frequently.

If you are serious about making nutritional changes and curious about why that's a good idea, you should consider looking into Eating for Energy. With loads of information on the benefits of eating raw plant foods, Yuri Elkaim, presents very compelling reasons to make the suggested changes in your lifestyle.

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.
