About the Author

Patrick Barrett has been interested in exercise ever since he started to lift weights with his dad and older brothers as a kid. He participated in a half-dozen organized sports (most notably inline hockey and high school wrestling) until a neck injury during a wrestling match in his junior year prevented him from playing further in any contact sports. After the injury, he developed an interest in pursuing strength and balance, particularly through bodyweight and self-taught gymnastic-type exercises. Patrick has always loved both cooking and eating food. Unsatisfied with the confusing and often contradictory nutritional advice offered by mainstream sources, Patrick searched for another way to understand human nutrition that was logical, consistent, and effective. His books on food and nutrition reflect this 'cleaner,' more intuitive and useful understanding of food and how it impacts our health. Patrick hopes that his books will save his audience time and aggravation by finally offering practical ways to achieve their nutrition and fitness goals.

of health,diet and fitness books and articles and will tell you this book tells
you all you need. The book is 70 pages, easy reading and to the point, no fluff
and B.S. just sound advice. One of the best ever read.

Finally, an intelligent book that cuts through all the 'diet clutter' and gives us APPLICABLE health information that WORKS WITH THE BODY instead of against it. This book is a rare find in today's world of fad diets and misinformation. The Natural Diet is BRILLIANT and ACCURATE! I am a nationally recognized Registered Dietitian and this is the Must-Have book for all my clients and friends. Thank you Patrick Barrett! You're a genius!

Easy to understand and remember. Makes sense. I was looking for a natural eating approach (note that I didn't state diet) without a lot of supplements or foods that are impossible to find. This fit the bill.

I want to clear up a few things: First when he mentions grains he mentions 3 animals that are suppose to eat grains (cattle, horses and sheep). None of those animals really have the capacity to eat grains effectively. This results in poor meat quality, as seen in the current big ag model. All of these are evolved to eat vegetation, they are only fed grains from an economical standpoint (its cheaper to make grain large scale and confine animals then it is to pasture animals and crop hay.) Grain is basically a hard seed, this leaves only a handful of animals that have evolved to eat it: birds, and some small animals e.g. chickens and mice.
This kinda ties in with soy, because humans aren't evolved to eat either. But in both cases humans found that by fermenting either allows them to digest it (in the case of maize, nixtamalization.) Which is probably why so many people in devolved countries are developing gluten intolerance. In the past grains were left in the field to dry in shocks, a relativity slow process, this allows a small amount of fermentation to help break down the grains. Compared to today grain is harvested and dried so quick that the grain is preserved to a fault.

2nd: He mentions coconut oil as a good fat. But fails to warn that some are extracted with hexane, which I think is worth telling people. Look out for really cheap coconut oil, it tends to be hexane extracted.

3rd: The mention of "sweating" as a form of detox. As far as I'm aware, there have never been any study that suggest the act of perspiration is a method of detox. However exercise does. A lot of toxins are stored in the fat and get released as you burn it off. "Mens sana in corpore sano"

The overall point of the book is sound and easy to follow though. I would still direct this to others as an easy way to understand what they should be eating.

This is a pretty quick & great read. It has a lot of information on eating healthy to be & stay healthy which = staying alive longer & enjoying life more. Read it! Do the research! See for yourself! Most of us have been brain-washed by the media to be hungup on food in an unhealthy way when it really should be common sense.

I have read many nutrition books over the years, hundreds if not thousands of books. I am pleased to find a book that confirms many of the conclusions I have come to in my own life after reading one fad after another and another. This book gives sound advice that just makes sense to me and seems to be well researched and the author provides a list of the resources.

Simple and straightforward. He says that this may be altered to suit individuals, but it is sensible and pretty easily followed. l liked how he wrote and what he wrote...there are many many more detailed books but this is a terrific place to start.
