On the other hand, if your quality of life has suffered from preoccupation with healthy eating, and you want to remember (or discover for the first time) what it feels like to trust yourself and your body's signals, Matt Stone's "Diet Recovery 2" will be a tremendous force for encouraging you to LIVE.
This book should definitely appeal to chronic dieters, but I think it is also very valuable to those who followed strict nutrition protocols for "health reasons" rather than weight loss. I was always a thin, active person who never saw the need to restrict calories or follow rigorous exercise programs. However, after college I began endurance running for "fun," and that began a multiple-year journey into textbook and internet health research that consumed my life. The more I learned the more restrictive I became. Improving my health became a fulltime job, with thousands of hours spent learning and practicing Paleo, gluten-free, casein-free, local organic plastic-free vegetarianism, etc. The healthier I became, the sicker and more anxious I felt. Over three years I experienced a dramatic decline into hypothyroidism (FT3 2.0), anemia (B12, folate, and iron deficient), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, low cortisol, "stage 6" adrenal fatigue, Wilson's temperature syndrome, MTHFR mutation, dysautonomia, etc.Read more ›
It pains me to think of the women (& men) on detoxes, juice cleanses, paleo, low carb, calorie restriction, etc. - suffering numerous health issues just to obtain/maintain a six pack or a slim figure. And society congratulates them for looking thin. "You must be healthy" they say, Even though they have no sex drive, no energy, can't sleep at night, cold hands & feet, headaches, mood swings, can't focus, depressed and obsessive thoughts. That's not health & wellness. It's time for a change and the first step is Matt's book - Eat for Heat and Diet Recovery 2.
Thank you so much Matt for your work, and for going against the crowd!
There is also some harsh language in the book but I expected it because of his other books and because it's Matt Stone. Language doesn't really bother me though. Just FYI if that matters to you.
I will add that he includes a few pictures of nude female bodies to show changes in body composition and to inappropriately prove his point. (cuz that's how he rolls...) It didn't take away from the message for me, but it's nice to have a heads up I guess.
I wrote a blog post with my 'review' so I'll just post it here:
I'd tried every diet under the sun to lose weight. Well, it turns out that it isn't just me and my broken will power. It's the nature of tinkering with your body. I had decided to 'go primal' to kick this 'problem' once and for all. I had some success. In fact, RAPID success. But that's the problem. Like I said, I know HOW to lose weight. I can do it well. But each time, I get cold and shivery like a chihuahua in a pool (and not half as cute!) and start to show signs of metabolic distress (anyone else have a peeling scalp and hair falling out in clumps? No? Just me then.) This is where rapid weight loss can get dangerous. I've realized that as much as I want to be my ideal size without too much extra junk in the trunk, I don't want my metabolism to suffer for it.
Enter the whole friggin' point of this post. I'd previously read a book written by Matt Stone called Diet Recovery & another called Eat for Heat. He's funny, smart, irreverent, and well-versed in the latest dietary dogma. Anything you've tried, he's done too.Read more ›
On a day it was too cold to run, something that I never would have said in previous years, I read Diet Recovery 2. Yes, the entire book. It was an entertaining fast paced book. It described all my issues exactly. But, taking your temperature? And the calorie counting log said that I should be eating as few calories as I had been. So, I decided to give eating the food an honest try. The worst case scenario was gaining a few pounds and the $4.29 spent for a thermometer.
There were a few pounds gained. However, the cravings ended. The mood swings ended. My temperature started at 97.0 and has his 98 after a couple of weeks. Even better, my runs are more energetic and I have finally made gains with lifting after stalling out all winter. This does mean that I have not followed the exercise portion and still had some success. Imagine, if I did it right?
'I've got all my life to live...I've got all my love to give....I will survive'... and dump the diets.
