THIS BREAKTHROUGH BOOK EXPLAINS HOW ENJOYING A DIET OF LIFE FORCE FOODS—foods that keep us at the pinnacle of health-will ensure you have a healthy, slim, energetic body and retain the vibrancy of youth. The Life Force Diet will restore you to your ideal body weight and even prevent or reverse illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

What is the secret? The Life Force Diet demonstrates that certain foods are more than a means of satisfying hunger or cravings-they're our secret weapon against aging, excess weight, and disease. And what do life force foods contain? Enzymes! Enzymes affect every single life function, including thousands of essential biochemical reactions in the body. If we are deficient in dietary enzymes, our bodies have to expend energy making their own.

Scientists have proven that the more enzyme-depleted foods we eat, the faster we lose our internal supplies, the result of which is exhaustion, weight gain, accelerated aging, and the onset of illness.

But there's good news. By eating a diet high in enzyme-rich life force foods, we can reverse these problems and turn back the clock on aging. Life force foods are the key to weight loss, mental clarity, boundless energy, and radiant good looks. In just three weeks you'll feel a renewed sense of vitality, and marvel at clearer, smoother skin and more lustrous hair. What's more, you'll find that The Life Force Diet has such delicious recipes, you'll look forward to every meal!

I found this book to be a great inspiration and guide to change my families way of eating. As any naturopath or wholistice nutrisionst will tell you North Americans eat way too much dairy, wheat, meat and processed foods. This book unlike some others still allows meat in the diet plan. If you have no idea about enzymes and the basic biology of nutritional impact on your body as a whole, this book may be out there. However if you have basic knowledge about ph balance, and are somewhat aware of what you are eating this book is a great asset. I definately reccomend this book if you are looking for a great nutritional guide that allows a great range of foods, it also offers a great opportunity for knowledge about the body as a whole and how eating right can change your overall health and well being, as far as preventing and curing disease with diet.....

This book was just okay. It was an interesting read, however, it felt like the author's personal opinions and neuroses interfered with giving quality information about nutrition. The book definitely pushes a raw diet. And the author discusses her dislike for brown rice at least 5 times throughout the book. If you are hardcore on raw diets and supergrass food - than this is for you....but, if you eat a more normal diet and just want some tips on how to make it healthier - try another book.

I recently purchased this book to follow up the Total Body Detox book from the same author. I can honestly say, when you follow this regiment, all your aches and pains disappear. My only complaint is the high cost of eating healthy. We even get our supplements at half price because our PA passes the savings on to us but still it is extremely costly. So my advice is, go conventional when its safe and organic when its not. Thank god for the neighbor with a lemon tree. The benifits just from the lemon water alone are monumental. Also, you can eat larger portions when your food is healthy, whole and gently cooked or raw. Easy to read too. Another thing to note is if you can keep up the regiment for 30 days, you can change your life and continue. Don't give up on it.

I first checked this book out at the library, but soon found it was a keeper - so I bought it! This book really opens your eyes to what is important about food and how it affects your body. I coupled this with an exercise program and have never felt better. I am a 55 year old male and want to age well, and this book is the best I've read; sound advice, easy to follow and implement. I hate to call it a diet - it's a way of better living! Food is medicine - you can decide on healthy food or poison yourself with most foods we put in our bodies based on what the food industry thinks we should eat. No thanks, I want to decide what is best for me and live a healthy life style!!
