Review

"Vani Hari is a crusader for truth in what we eat and drink. She turns her in-depth food investigations into a practical, easy-to-follow plan that will have you feeling and looking your best in no time."
Frank Lipman, MD, author of The New Health Rules

"Read this book and you will never think about food, your health, or the world in the same way again. And we will all be better off for it."―From the foreword by Mark Hyman, MD, author of The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet

"Vani Hari is a fierce protector of our health and well-being and millions will benefit from her heroic deeds. It would be nearly impossible for someone not to lose weight and feel better after following these 21 habits. they are absolutely life changing and I recommend them to my patients and students of medicine."―Joel Kahn MD, FACC, clinical professor of medicine, Wayne State University School of Medicine, and author of The Whole Heart Solution

"There's a reason big food companies are terrified of Food Babe. She finds out the truth about what's in your food like no one else, and holds food manufacturers accountable when they're selling you food products they know will make you sick. Now, in this fabulous book, she shows you how to be your own food investigator, activist, and nutritionist. She shows you how to get rid of polluting foods and replace them with ones that are truly healthy. Follow her plan and your life will be more vibrant, more beautiful, and more powerful."―John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution

"In this book, Vani Hari uncovers secrets about ingredients the food corporations don't want you to know. Which is why they are asking their crisis-management teams right now: Can this woman be stopped? Good luck with that."―Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group

"The Food Babe is a one woman consumer protection agency... If you want to bring transparency to our food system and improve the health and well-being of our fellow Americans then you need to join this movement. "―Congressman Tim Ryan

"Vani Hari is a fearless leader in a new food revolution. I'm in awe of her commitment to heal the world one bite at a time. In her book, The Food Babe Way, Vani wakes us up to the truth about our food, our health and our future. I recommend this book to everyone!"―Gabrielle Bernstein, author of Miracles Now

I'm giving this book 4 stars ("I like it") because overall it has good intentions, and it makes concrete proposals for how to take action. I can't give it 5 stars ("I love it") because the book does not adequately document all of the claims it makes.

Unlike an extremely large number of reviewers (both 5 star and 1 star), I actually read this book from cover to cover. (If the review only talks about how great/awful Ms. Hari is; or only discusses topics from her blog, it is not a book review. It is a comment on somthing else. THIS is a book review.) I received an advanced copy for review, and receive Ms. Hari's emails. I was not asked to "write a 5 star review" as some of the (1 star) reviews claim. Instead, each email from Ms. Hari has asked me to write an HONEST review, and I did--there is quite a lengthy review on my blog, http://www.trainwithbain.com/food-babe-way/ including constructive criticism on what needs improvement. This book does three specific things that I find valuable. First, it encourages readers to think about what they eat, read labels, and make deliberate choices. Second, it provides an example (granted it is the author) of one person who changed her eating habits and benefited from it. (To be fair, there are brief comments from some others who followed her recommendations and felt better.) Third, the most important part, this book outlines very specific steps the reader can take to improve food habits.

Ms. Hari does MUCH more than merely say "chemicals are bad!" as some reviewers claim. (She also does not advise readers to stay away from conventional medical treatment--which I read in a 1 star review by someone who clearly hasn't read the book.) She points to 15 specific food additives that she advises against eating.

I appreciate what she's doing, taking on a giant food industry and bringing awareness. I love reading about health and such, and follow Vani on social media. I'll be honest though, I wasn't as pleased with this book as I thought I would be. I'll just list pros and cons...
Pros:
1}She is a voice for transparency in the food industry. I admire and applaud that.
2}There is probably a lot of good info for those who are brand new on this health journey.
3}She does a good job of explaining why some food choices are better, healthier, etc.
Cons:
1} She doesn't cite her sources well. This is irritating to me as someone who likes to go do further research.
2} I think some her ideas are flawed. For instance, she only eats meat about 1 x a week and talks about vegetarianism being healthier. She also contradicts herself , i.e. saying fats can actually be good for you, but then stating in several places that ..."if you had too much fat and too may calories on that { vacation, restaurant, whatever..." I would have expected someone like her to be beyond these basic lies of the FDA. Fat is good, meat is healthy correctly sourced, calories don't need to be considered when eating a healthy , nourishing diet. etc. She should know this. Better books about this stuff would be Nourishing Traditions, anything by Joel Salatin {in fact if Vani read Mr. Salatin, she'd realize most of what she said about beef, and how we'd 'stop polluting our planet and be able to feed more people with grains instead of cows grazing' is completely bogus.

First things first - I pre-ordered this book with my own money when I was a subscriber to the Food Babe's blog. I had only been a reader for a short time but generally liked what I read. Second things second - I have now unsubscribed from her blog and am returning this book.

This review is not about whether or not her claims are backed by science or just scare tactics. I am writing about the "Lose Weight, Look Years Younger and Feel Great in 21 Days" content of the book.

I am in recovery from an eating disorder. To be honest, that's why I'll buy almost anything that claims that I'll lose weight quickly. I should have known it was my disorder that made Food Babe so appealing.

I started reading her book and as soon as I saw "Day 1 - Cleanse Daily with my Lemon Water Ritual" I started to become wary of the book. Anything that has the words "cleanse" and "ritual" scream disordered eating to me. NB1: Disordered eating is not the same as an eating disorder. Disordered eating is behavior like restricting food groups or being overly rigid about meal times.

I kept reading. The number of times the words "detox," "cleansing," "eliminating," "limit" and others like it appear in this book are frightening for someone with eating problems. In my opinion, the biggest offenders are "Day 9 - Detox from Added Sugar" and "Day 12 - Break Some Bread - and Other Carbs." They could easily be combined into one chapter: "Set Yourself Up for a Binge."

When I saw the "good carbs" vs. "bad carbs" concept rear its ugly head, I knew this book wasn't for me.
