Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rubin (The Maker's Diet) and host of the Christian-based television show Extraordinary Health offers this fairly complicated 16-week diet plan that is heavy on his Garden of Life company's products and general enough for non-Christian readers. Many of the ideas are familiar to health aficionados: the benefits of filtered water and organic, locally grown, in-season fruits and vegetables; the value of high-fiber and high protein foods; warnings against refined carbohydrates, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, diet drinks and—more oddly—microwave ovens. Rubin, founder of the Biblical Health Institute, also offers a Healing Codes exercise involving breathing and meditation to reduce stress and a suggested workout program, which focuses on short, intense bouts of exercise. Eight pages of testimonials, 33 pages of recipes (most include his products) and a 66-page detailed meal-by-meal eating plan round out the text. A Web site, www.PerfectWeightAmerica.com, promises to help readers access more diet tools. For a diet book, this is surprisingly wordy and densely written, but Rubin fans who want a fully detailed eating plan—and don't mind extensive product pitches—probably won't mind its verbosity.

We still use the book as a resource even after finished reading.

Jordan Rubin in not a doctor and so he is speaking more from a personal story than medical research.

The Perfect Weight America Program is a true god send. I know because I won the 16 week Perfect Weight America Program which started in Delray Beach Florida this past june. I was skeptical at first, but I tried the products, and whole food recomendations and stayed focused and on course. In june 2007 I was weighing 240# 5' 7 1/2 inches tall with a 44" waist , (I am an oil field worker in the Gulf of Mexico), by november 2007 I weighed 190#'s with a 36" waist when i completed the 16 week program. Sure, I could have found excuses ,complained and got off course, but my wife stood by me, and Jordan Rubin and the Biblical Health Institue helped me along the way. Today february 2008, I weigh 192#s with a 34" waist and I am very healthy at 54 years young. I have literally rebuilt my body with whole food and whole food supplements, I am off blood pressure and cholesterol medications. Every day I plan my meals with the lessons learned from the Perfect Weight America Program. Jordan Rubin is a Dedicated Coach who walks the walk and talks the talk. His program does not send you pre-packaged and chemically processed foods to your door step. His program advocates awarness, choosing organic, whole foods, and whole food supplemts along with exercise, and all three of these key items work together. You have to ask your self what is your health worth, Jordan Rubin reminded me, I had taken too many things for granted for too long, and I am grateful to the Biblical Health Institue and Jordan Rubin for being there when I needed them.

I got this book for free with a purchase from The Vitamin Shoppe, and boy am I glad I did not pay for this. Mr. Rubin has put together a hodge-posh of different (and some very complicated) dieting techniques and wrapped it into the slick marketing of "something new and groundbreaking!". Well, nothing in here is neither new nor groundbreaking. Most people are aware that the high carb/junk diet of America is sorely lacking in nutritional value. However, he takes it to the extreme at times, overselling his "all natural" products. Some of the recipes are good, but you can make most them by taking a trip to your local Whole Foods or health food store (and spending quite a bit less money)...rather than investing hundreds of dollars that most Americans simply don't have in this economy in his products. Not to mention, he has never had a weight problem! It's always fun to listen to a person who was underweight and had to GAIN weight due to an illness, wax poetic about how much of a loser and excuse-maker the average overweight American is. Spare me, please. We won't even get started on some of the simply non-practical advice that is offered. City-dwellers often don't have easy access to free-range meats and locally grown veggies. And the FDA has no regulation over "organic" products.

So, on with the solution. Well, some better books are "Feeding The Hungry Heart" by Geneen Roth (if you suffer from binging disorder and need help, as I did in the past), and after reading that, try "The Way To Eat" by David Katz, PhD. Do the good old tried and true excercise more and modify your eating habits...and limit your intake of processed foods and "junk", sodas (including diet sodas), and "fake sugar" (nutrasweet, splenda, etc). You don't need to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on Jordan Rubin's supplements when you already have the good common sense that God gave you. Good luck to everyone!

Nothing new here except for Fucoxanthin. Stay away from processed foods, sugars, and so on. I've read the book, generally followed the diet, taken the supplements, and consistently feel much better (energy, focus, mood, vitality and so on) than when I started. We cheat here and there, so the weight hasn't fallen off. The supplements are super and reasonably priced. We're a single income household of 8, so we know about budgeting and food cost. We generally spend about the same as before because the junk costs just as much and doesn't do the jobs of nourishment and replenishment. We have heartily embraced a way to eat better and care for our health. We're on fewer prescriptions, get sick less. This is worth the read. One thing's for sure, nothing will work if we don't really want it to work. This program does work, surely like many others. We've picked a path and are staying on it. We happen to like this one a lot.

I was introduced to this book by a friend whose husband's life was saved after reading The Maker's Diet. She's my friend who eats organic and shops at farmer's markets. Since skimming the book, I've changed my life to do more of the same.

Mr. Rubin is all about taking care of the whole self, including family eating, better habits, eating foods that promote health INSTEAD OF DIETING. While the recipes can be hard to follow if you don't have access to a Whole Foods store nearby, the concept is to understand how to eat, not only eating leafy foods.

I'm a fan because of his focus on going "green" and eating organic foods. It's been a helpful guide for me, but I've also given my copy to my parents so that they can follow his principles. I'd encourage readers to try it. It's not so much a diet, but a healthy way of life.
