“The Adaptation Diet provides user-friendly but scientifically supported information that not only correlates so many of our modern-day diseases with our stressful environment, but more importantly, gives readers the tools to undo the damage.” —David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM, author of The Better Brain Book
“If you have no hope you can ever lose weight and feel at peace, read The Adaptation Diet by Dr. Charles Moss. It provides clear, concise suggestions that can help you shed not only the pounds but also many of your other health concerns. Yes, you are holding the book that has proven sensible recommendations and explanations to resolve many medical challenges. Turn your life around today by simply trying this diet.” —Doris J. Rapp, MD, author of Our Toxic World: A Wake Up Call
“The Adaptation Diet offers a unique perspective on weight loss, pointing out the weight-gaining effects of ‘dietary stress,’ and how to deal with them. Going way beyond just calorie control, Dr. Charles Moss points out that dietary stress reduction—with or without calorie reduction—will result in significant and sustained weight loss. He tells us which foods and supplements actually reduce the food-stress-induced, over-active cortisol response, allowing that elusive goal, weight loss, to happen while at the same time improving your health. If you want to lose weight, The Adaptation Diet is an excellent place to start!” —Jonathan Wright, MD, Editor, Nutrition & Healing Newsletter
“Dr. Charles Moss has been a true pioneer in the development of integrative medicine. His successful consolidation of Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine and other healing arts has assisted tens of thousands of patients over the past thirty years. He has been a master clinician and teacher who has developed programs that deliver successful outcomes with numerous chronic illnesses. His approach is sensible, well- founded from experience, and grounded in the translational science of our age.” —Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, resident, MetaProteomics and Chief Science Officer, Metagenics
“Dr. Moss is a colleague I've admired for decades for his competence, compassion, clarity, and communication style. His latest book reflects his considerable accomplishments in ways accessible for all those interested in better health. With epigenetics or lifestyle and environment determining 92 percent of health due to what we eat, drink, think, and do, the healthier choices recommended in this guide can add years to life and life to years.” —Dr. Russ Jaffe, MD, PhD, Founder/Chief Executive Officer Fellow, Health Studies Collegium Perque Integrative Health Elisa/Act Biotechnologies
“Too tired to exercise? Is your willpower ambushed by unrelenting food cravings? Start reclaiming your health with The Adaptation Diet. Patients self-prescribing this book can consider it as a toehold for scaling impediments to optimal wellness. They can be confident in the medical science and in Dr. Moss.” —Ingrid Kohlstadt, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACN, Faculty, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Executive Director, NutriBee National Nutrition Competition, Inc., Editor, Advancing Medicine with Food and Nutrients
“As a colleague of Dr. Charles Moss in integrative medicine since the 1970s, I can attest to his pioneering work in nutritional medicine, and to his wide-ranging knowledge and contemporary application of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the world's oldest mind-body medicine model. In this book he blends the wisdom of the latter with his thirty-five years of practical clinical experience with cutting-edge nutritional medicine. The result is a book that helps the reader deal with modern health risks with clear and practical suggestions and with the wider understanding of how our diet itself directly affects our stress levels. Both TCM and modern Western medicine would agree that our overall ability to handle stress is a foundational skill for vital living and the single most important preventive principle for all modern diseases.” —Ronald Puhky, MD, BAc, Dip Ac. Medical Director, InspireHealth Integrative Cancer Center, Victoria, BC
“I would recommend this book if you are starting out on a quest for better health… you just might find the answer you’re looking for!” —Beth Strand, blogger at Words & Stitches

Even though I'm not a physician, I found that Dr. Moss' engaging writing style invited me understand and appreciate the medical basis of how my body's physiology copes with the unhealthful Standard American Diet. I discovered how healthier eating alternatives could improve and correct the adverse physical impact of years of my poor eating habits. It's a delight to read a scholarly book that's not dry... it's informative, readable, and practical.
The closing chapters on epigenetics which present how dietary and lifestyles choices can impact not only my life but that of succeeding generations sounds like science fiction but is the latest in clinical research.
This book "reads" like a fine meal.
turn down White Castle's newest offering --
carmel covered French fries. But how do we make all our
choices informed,? The Adaptation Diet removes the
mystery and complexity of transitioning into a new
lifestyle. It begins with an understanding of how certain
food and environmental choices can develop a healthier
lifestyle. I especially appreciated the specifics on foodprep,
and supplements, reinforced with patient histories
that detail the effects of dietary change. Steps to
adapt our current lifestyle to a life-long way of living are
detailed in user-friendly charts and bulleted summaries
included in the book. Finally, recipes and diet
plans enable us to maintain our new life. Discussions of
epigenetics, a new science of gene interaction, give us a
sense that the Adaptation Diet will provide us the
opportunity to control our medical destiny and, perhaps
that of our children.
