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.
Another half pound bites the dust woot woot!! This may not sound like a lot to many people, but I don't have a ton of weight to lose, and I've NEVER lost weight as painlessly and naturally as I have on this plan!
I can absolutely do this plan for life and never feel deprived. I still have not counted one calorie, nor have I felt hungry once, even though I'm Intermittent Fasting 16 hours per day! (For the most part I eat all my meals between 11a-7p each day.)
This brings my total loss at close to ten pounds in one month!! I feel this is a healthy, sustainable, permanent, weight loss. I am so completely happy with this!!
In my first-third week updates, I shared how I am waking up more refreshed, and clearer headed, have more energy throughout the day, and can handle stress better (fewer things "get" to me).
My husband, who doesn't need to lose weight, is trimming up. Though he's lost no weight, his waist is has trimmed down (his pants are looser), his chest is getting more solid, etc.
He has only cut out grains/legumes and has not changed his routine (which is naturally active), yet is experiencing these surprising improvements! He is not intermittent fasting.
The best part is, how he's feeling over all! He has a renewed sense of wellness and was previously getting stiffness in his joints which has nearly disappeared!
One thing to note: I've experienced some headaches this past week, especially when I wake up. I'm not prone to headaches and am wondering if anyone else experienced these?
I'm assuming they are from either:
1). A naturally-occurring detox, which will dissipate on its own.
2). An introduction of something in my new grain-free way of eating that I may have an allergy to (possibly coconut flour??)
3). I'm not drinking enough fluids ... which isn't likely b/c I drink water and herbal teas all day.
What I plan to do: I'll wait one more week to see if they go away on heir own. If not, I'll begin logging what I eat (urrrg) to see if I can pinpoint any patterns.
All-in-all, we're both extremely happy with the continued improvements we're experiencing!!
What's more, I'm becoming a grain-free baker for the first time ever, which has actually been a lot of fun and has seen more successes than failures!!
That says a lot for a woman who works full time and has always enjoyed cooking, but rarely liked to bake! :D
ANOTHER PLUS, is that the author, Paul Jaminet is extremely responsive to questions!! What a rare gift from an author!
Response from Paul Jaminet via Perfect Health Diet FB Page:
Hi [Roze]; The headaches are probably due to dehydration from lack of electrolytes. Try adding potassium-rich vegetables to your diet (tomatoes, potatoes, others), adding salt, and drinking more water. Herbal teas are often diuretic (promoting urination) so they may actually impair hydration status. Thanks for sharing!
First, I started with the Atkins diet, and saw amazing results in how I felt. As weight loss was not necessary, I continued to search for a diet geared to excellent health. That is when I happened on Paul Jaminet's scholarly, but kind and caring blog. His academic approach appealed to me. I, too, try to read as much scientific research about health and nutrition as I can, but my time is limited. I was also pleased to find Paul had access to research that I as a layman do not have, due to his wife's work as a cancer researcher.
It takes years to become ill. Likewise, it can take years to become well. I am not wholly well yet, but have come far since I started this diet early in 2011. I read and followed the Jaminet's first self-published book, and continued to learn and improve my health and my husband's health. This book is a continuation of my journey. At 61, I feel better than I did at 55! And that is saying a great deal!
