I've tried Atkins, I've tried calorie restriction, I've tried the GOMAD milk diet (which was disastrous!). The only thing that worked, for a time, was the Zone Diet and even then I became really really constipated.

I watched the DVD Forks over Knives and decided that a plant based diet was something that I wanted to try. I didn't really believe that it was a healthy lifestyle - a person needs protein and all that. Just a week or so before going vegan I'd said at work, 'Yeah vegans; they can't raise they're voices or get erections.' Everyone laughed. Then I came into work, after watching Forks over Knives, and sheepishly declared, 'Guys, I'm ... becoming a vegan.'
Watching the DVD was all it took to convince me, but going vegan was a lot harder. I tried the Engine 2 diet, which I just couldn't get into. I got the Forks Over Knives cookbook, which was great but I found it hard to put into practice day to day. Then I found the paradigm diet.

The paradigm diet is AMAZING. It's simple, it's easy, and the food is delicious. I've haven't felt this good in, I can't remember the last time I felt this good. Just start the day with one of the breakfast fruit smoothies and you'll be hooked.

Here's a run down of some of the good points that I've experienced:

-I've lost 6 kilos (or 13 pounds)
-my skin is clear and glowing
-my ex asked me if I'd had botox
-I fall asleep straight away and wake up refreshed
-I feel incredible
-I'm getting more erections now than I did when I was 14

If you aren't sure whether you should buy this book just download the sample like I did. The books a pleasure a read, it's well written and funny, and it will change your life. Just give it a go.

Dr. Adam Dave, M.D: Author, and plant-based, triathlete. And for those seeking a good, healthy way of life - yet NOT, perhaps, quite prepared to 'go 100% raw?' A 'real life-saver,' I'd say. Details here...

Why is plant-based super-athlete and author, Dr. Adam Dave M.D.'s, The Paradigm Diet, 'for my money,' the most useful book ever penned, on perhaps Man's ideal diet - the 80-10-10 diet? First: Dave M.D.'s approach offers, in my experience - and that of a large number with whom I've worked - the full range of benefits garnered on the much tougher-to-maintain (for most, I'd say), raw, fruit-based diet. Excellent, reliable digestion and elimination. A low 'toxic load.' And a high degree of nutrients, 'per bite.' And two: Dr. Dave's approach carries with it, just a couple of key differences, making his plan FAR more 'doable,' in my opinion, for most. More 'doable,' I mean, than would be a 100% raw, fruit-based regimen. Particularly for the average, formerly standard-western-diet-eating...consumer.

Those differences? Well, Dave M.D. incorporates the bean (botanically, a fruit), into his recommended protocol. An 80-10-10 food, generally-speaking, in most cases; and one, rich in nutrients and fiber. And, a food which has the advantage of digesting in the stomach to a large degree; rather than bypassing it quickly - as does sweet fruit, to the digestive tract in about 30 minutes.

Why is this important? Well, in my experience, there is simply one critical feature about the 100% raw, fruit-based diet, that the vast majority of formerly toxic-food-addicted folk, 'can't handle.' One many find, 'intolerable.' And one that pushes them, in many cases, 'over the edge,' and often, 'crashing back down,' to less-than-desirable eating habits.

Since becoming a vegetarian 10 years ago due to my love of animals, and being totally confused about what to eat, I have been on a quest ever since to find the best, easiest and healthiest diet without harming living things. So much conflicting advice has led me to add fish, dairy and eggs back into my diet over time, and I am now the heaviest I have ever been in my life. After seeing the movie Vegucated (http://www.amazon.com/Vegucated/dp/B006LZSF8M/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1337094264&sr=1-1) I decided to become vegan once more - be prepared to cry if you see this movie!

But I knew I needed help to make sure my diet is optimal. So I was thrilled when I discovered this book after being at an all time low mentally and physically. It is so easy to read and understand and Dr Dave has a wonderful sense of humor which I love. I now feel totally enabled and so grateful. I wish I had known all this stuff 10 years ago and then maybe I wouldn't now have 60 lbs of fat from eating bread and cheese to remove!

Buy this book and get healthy.

Although I am quite well read in the subject of plant based nutrition, The Paradigm Diet was informative and inspiring. It has helped me complete my quest for the most ideal human diet. Dr. Dave is a fabulous author making the read very entertaining while educating at the same time. I contacted him with a few questions regarding my own diet and he helped answer my questions thoroughly being specific and detailed in his approach. I am very impressed with this author-not to mention he is an M.D. which adds even more weight to what he states. Get the book, read it, do it. You will be very happy you did!
