Rich Food Poor Food: The Ultimate Grocery Purchasing System (GPS)
Rich Food Poor Food: The Ultimate Grocery Purchasing System (GPS)
Price: $9.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Although I can see how someone that has not read ..., October 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although I can see how someone that has not read many health food books could get real value out of this, I struggled with the format and design. If you've read many books on nutrient rich eating, then I think you can safely pass on this book and not lose anything.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - A Bit Mushy, August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Suprisingly bland. Very "mushy" as compared to fresh octopus, but consistent with other canned fish. Just didn't expect that as much with octopus.

I think this would be outstanding added to recipes like paella or some such, or over a salad. But unless you really like octopus, I would pass on eating it right out of a can.

I WILL buy again, just as an infrequent buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Item - Never Go Back To Plastic Clips Again, August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These work group. Weighty, substantial, and large enough to close over small bags and large bags. Can work great in freezer, pantry, or fridge. Easy to remove from package. If I was starting from scratch in a new home, I would spend the money to buy 10 of these and none other, and never look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price premium to typical store bought sardines, August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tastes about 10x better than the typical stuff you find in a Safeway. Tastes fresher and higher quality.

With that said, it's still canned. Please don't think it will taste like fire-grilled sardines drizzled in olive oil.

4.0 out of 5 stars The "Friendlier" Version of His Old Classic, Eat To Live - With a bit more "trust me" thrown in for readability, August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Deciding between Eat To Live or The End of Dieting:

In this book, compared with his others, it's a lot easier to read, but it's a bit more "trust the doctor" versus laying out a massive scientific pile of evidence. So if you are a born skeptic, get Eat to Live. If you accept that veggies are good for you, then skip that and just get to "follow the good doctor's advice" of this book.

I also felt Eat To Live is a harsher diet... it's very, very strict, and if followed to the letter, will result in faster weight loss and health benefits. It's just really, really hard. In The End of Dieting, he loosens up a bit, and it may take you 3-4 times longer to get the results, but will be easier going there.

If you have a major medical issue and are facing heart surgery, for example, get Eat To Live and take the tough medicine.

If you just have 20-30 pounds to lose or want to just eat healthier to avoid FUTURE health issues, then go easy on yourself and do The End of Dieting.

About the content:

If you read enough diet/nutrition books, you start to ask youself? What is common knowledge and what is new here? In general, folks, NEW IS BAD.

For lasting health with few side effects, find the "common ground" of all diets that have worked in the past.

For Fuhrman, his diet is based on common sense and what we all know in the back of our minds to be true. We need to eat less meat and cheese, and a lot more veggies (and fruit, just under some reasonable control).

What this book does however, is give you the vast science behind it so you can justify the fact that, let's be honest, steamed asparagus is NEVER going to taste as good as a donut or peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

So I absolutely believe that of all the diet books out there, all of them, this one is the healthiest. It's just not easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sturdy construction and well made, May 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These things are built like a tank. Extra thick plastic, all quality parts. Everything fits well. It's perfect for a protein powder smoothie shake... put some powder in dry, then when ready to consume, add water, shake and drink.

Only downside is that the lid fits very snug... you want it to of course so it doesn't leak, but sometimes you almost need two hands and some strength to get it off.

All in all, this is well worth the premium compared to a half price knockoff option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wide toe box and Feels Like You Are Walking on Memory Foam, May 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got these for weight lifting and some light indoor cardio, and because I need a wide toe box to avoid a pinched nerve. I followed the advice and ordered a 12 even though I normally wear an 11, they slip off every so often, but they feel nice and roomy and cushioned. They seem well constructed and I love the small company feel of ordering from these guys versus the giant multinationals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only way my children will consume vitamins, April 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They taste pretty good, though they are truly a poor substitute from real nutrition. But evidently I'm a bad parent because this is the only way I can get my kids to consume them, so I figure something is better than nothing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but bites into foot, April 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My daughter wears an 8.5 usually, and said these were WAY too small, so my wife who wears an 8 usually tried them and although enough room for toes, said they were just about the least comfortable shoes she has worn. Which is a shame as both liked the way they looked. So having worn both around for a couple days, in the trash they went.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife said one application a night was more effective than weekly pedicures, April 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
She uses this every night before bed, and her heels are now always smooth. She gets pedicures less often, now just for nail color changes. She thought this was a miracle product.
