“This is more than a diet. It's a program for perfect health. The result of 5 years of research, the Perfect Health Diet enabled scientists Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet to cure their own chronic diseases. With more than 600 citations to the scientific literature, Perfect Health Diet explains simply and clearly how to optimize your diet for a lifetime of great health. I've read hundreds of books on nutrition and health in my life, and Perfect Health Diet is at the top of the list." (Chris Kresser, M.S., Lac; integrative medicine practitioner and blogger at ChrisKresser.com)
“The Perfect Health Diet is the missing link. It bridges the gap between the philosophical, broad-based, almost intuitive ancestral approach to health and the hard-core data hounds who need to see proof at every step. The authors are scientists through and through, an astrophysicist and a molecular biologist, who deftly wield the scepter of cold, hard science while paying homage to the inescapable wisdom of traditional, ancestral, evolutionary health.” (Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint and founder of marksdailyapple.com)
“From the best of what we know about ancestral science and the natural world comes a modern-day formula proven to return us to optimal health. The Perfect Health Diet delivers exactly what it promises.” (Dallas & Melissa Hartwig, authors of It Starts With Food)
“The sanest overview of what to eat I have ever seen. If you are going to read only one thing on the subject, read this.” (Seth Roberts, Ph.D., professor emeritus of psychology at UC Berkeley and author of The Shangri-La Diet)
"Whenever any of my clients ask me a health/performance diet question, I just tell them to go to Perfect Health Diet; I trust that anything that appears in the book has been thoroughly researched and examined. One of my best friends was on the diet while undergoing chemo and his bloodwork numbers were so good that they would have been considered average...for a person without cancer. This book is my number one nutritional resource for my family, friends, and clients.” (Court Wing, Co-founder and Head of Training, CrossFit NYC)
"This book provides the missing link between Paleolithic diets and complete health and vitality, and provides a complete foundation for total ancestral health in the modern age." (Aaron Blaisdell, Professor of Psychology at UCLA and President of the Ancestral Health Society.)
About the Author

I have been following various health and wellness experts over the years, and have spent more time reading and researching how to be healthy and feel better than I could ever count.
Finally, a book that puts it all together! I was so impressed how well PHD tied together all of the various schools of thought I've read over the years, into a simple, actionable plan.
The writing style is engaging and easy to read for such a deep, well researched book. Right from the get-go you'll find recommendations that you can easily put into action right away. It's easy to tell the authors have put a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and research into this book.
My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (lymphoma) a couple weeks ago, which was my main motivation for buying the book. Two weeks later, my mom has started chemo and the doctors have told us "she's doing great with the chemo" and her "body is responding really well."
I think a big reason for that is the PHD diet she's been on. She has a good amount of energy (for someone going through chemo) and a big reason for that is PHD.
As a bi-product of cooking PHD friendly foods for my mom, I've actually lost about ten pounds in the last few weeks and have noticed my energy and sleep patterns improve as well.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is serious about making meaningful changes to their diet and overall health. Also make sure to check out the authors' website, there is a ton of great (free) content and helpful resources.
I think everyone should have this info, and the book lays it out great. I do think one drawback is that the book is a little too dry at times and may lose the interest of a more casual reader. This would have knocked my review down to 4 stars if it weren't for the excellent summaries and recommendations stated clearly at the end of each section that explains what the reader should be taking away from the information.
