Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Riddled by immune deficiencies, Rubin spent most of his sophomore year of college coping with, among other things, a combination of Crohn's disease, intestinal parasites and fibromyalgia. His six-foot frame dropped more than 100 pounds and he sought nutritional balance in a wide variety of places. His experience and ultimate recovery—brought about by a devout faith in God and natural medicine—led him to pursue doctorates in naturopathic medicine, nutrition and natural therapies. On the heels of his national bestseller The Maker's Diet, the thirty-year-old Rubin offers this seven-part plan for a healthy lifestyle, based predominately on dietary and hygienic precepts outlined in the Bible. After years of tinkering with his own dietary restrictions and needs, he advocates a 50-day regimen of whole foods, supplemental vitamin cocktails, fasting and functional exercise. (Responsibly, he reminds readers not to make any drastic changes in diet or lifestyle without first consulting a physician.) Nonbelievers may have a hard time balancing some of his assertions as a Bible literalist with his lack of medical degree, though contributing writer Remedios lends credibility as a general practitioner. However, no one can dispute Rubin's commitment to his faith and his lifestyle. (Jan. 10)

I received an advanced reader's copy and I have to say that this is one of the best health/diet books I have read for the following reasons:
-very practical; has daily routines built in
-very readable; good for the general audience
-well researched and documented; routed in the best and latest science with excellent author credentials
-wholistic; includes aspects of mind and soul as well as body and has more details on advanced hygiene that he alluded to in the Maker's Diet
-good stories and written in an interesting style

Unlike one of the other reviewers, I don't see Jordan Rubin's new book as simply a rehash of The Maker's Diet. This one builds and expands upon the principles laid out in The Maker's Diet, adding much personal insight and anecdotes along the way. In addition, of great interest are the comprehensive sections on emotional health and finding purpose in life -- topics that were touched upon in his last book, but are fleshed out here for those who want to comprehend the holistic approach to health more fully.

Lastly, Rubin makes a much stronger statement of faith in his new offering. We see more of who he really is and of the driving faith behind his work and vision.

An excellent follow up. Despite what some readers say, I have tried his products before I read these books (by years), and they replaced 4 prescriptions I could not seem to get off (doctors said I never would). If I stop taking the products, I have found I must go back on the 4 prescriptions. Info I have found in this and The Maker's Diet have allowed me to eat FAR more foods than I could tolerate before. (I was forced for years to eat no meat, no dairy, and now I can CHOOSE what I eat.) My Mother and Sister, though having different health issues, have been equally helped and they were VERY skeptical (my father ran hospitals for a living, so we shared a traditional MD's view of the world). This system WORKS; I thought that Clenzology would be hooey anyway, but have found it indespensible. Each time I doubt him I have been proven wrong. He is obviously learning a lot and each book is an improvement in knowledge and helpfulness...I have had to research nutrition for my own health ails for years and nothing worked until I found Jordan Ruban's products. The few things I knew that he didn't seem to were in this newest book. Try for yourself to see.

This books has radically changed my life. After reading this book it made me realize throughout my entire life I have been taught to eat all the wrong foods. This book will take you back to the way we are supposed to take care of our bodies and not allow cancer and disease take over our bodies.

Not only do I look and feel better, but my husband and I have lost a total of 35 pounds within the last 4 months! I was never overweight, but I didn't know I had weight that was unnecessary.

I not only reccommend this bood to everyone I know, but I highly reccommend this book to everyone I don't know. This WILL change your life!

Everything that we need to know, God has put it in the bible. God showed Jordan and Jordan has simply bolded the print.

Thank you God and thank you Jordan Rubin!

I love Rubin's style of communicating the reality of the health crisis that has so swept our nation. He speaks to you, not at you. I truly felt as if he was "rooting" for my success at taking the steps to lead a more healthy lifestyle. I think the information shared is practical and applicable to everyday living. The recipies are easy enough to incorporate into everyday life, as well. I am thoroughly impressed. Reading his materials has also made me realize that my grandmother really did know the truth of food (We thought she was just too fanatical all these years....but I guess I should have listened more to the woman in my life who was healed from cancer through the application of eating healthy). The years and heartache I would have saved myself....sigh. But it's never too late to get started. I highly recommend this book!!!! Have no doubt about purchasing. It's fantastic.

Format: Hardcover
To the reviewer who cited the FTC settlement, at the very least you should READ the book you're reviewing BEFORE you review it.

I found the book to be helpful regardless of whether you take the supplements or not. In fact, there wasn't a great amount of space devoted to Garden of Life products. Most of it has to do with changing dietary and lifestyle habits.

Every supplement I've ever seen makes similar claims to those made by Mr. Rubin's company. It's unfortunate that there seems to have been an issue making the right disclaimers to the claims in this case, but let's be honest - I think there are alot of companies that need to make adjustments to their advertising. That doesn't mean the claims are incorrect or that the company was intentionally being dishonest - only that the claims are not substantiated by an official organization.
