There must be two different versions of this book and this is not the one I want - the one I want is very expensive an so will have to wait to whenever, if ever, I can afford to order it.
i read this entire book in a matter of days. i love how the author seamlessly aligns the external environmental crisis with the internal one going on in our own bodies. she brings a spiritual dimension to 'diet' that is not often seen.
she definitely is extreme- not sure if i feel that only eating fruit all summer is the healthiest thing for me. but i am incorporating her principles into my life (vegan, 80% raw, lots of juicing, etc...) and i am feeling the difference.
i also LOVE that she speaks to diabetes in this book and how it's reversible. she talks about the fat/carb/sugar connection. it's ironic that many type 2 people think they need to go paleo to manage diabetes. yes that is true- to MANAGE it you need to cut carbs and sugars. but to HEAL it you need to cut animal fat entirely. the paleo diet is actually the wrong thing to do for diabetes type 2 if you are trying to heal yourself of it entirely. there are scientific articles out there talking about people with type 2 going on a low calorie/zero fat diet (aka starvation diet) for several weeks to a month and they completely heal themselves of diabetes. this is not well known information- but she clearly speaks to it in the book.
my only criticism is that in this new book she has aligned with a alkaline company and has become a sales person for them in her book. i don't love that. in addition she talks about all the expensive things one needs to buy to do this diet- which i am fortune to be able to afford a water filter, vitamix, masticating juicer, etc... but there are many out there that cannot afford this. i wish she would give options for people at different price points. in the long run investing in these more expensive machines could save you in medical bills- but it can still be daunting for someone on a meager budget and it can make them feel like they cannot do this diet unless they are rich.
other than that- EXCELLENT BOOK!
