It is that in order to live a long and happy life one must:
Eat five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables a day; eat until 2/3 full; eat whole grains, buckwheat, brown rice, use hemp, eat meat as a treat; eat lots of nuts and beans; prepare meat properly; use organic goat and sheep cheeses; have an egg occasionally, eat lots of fish; use extra virgin olive oil; use garlic and onions; eat crunchy vegetables, eat sweet potatoes; eat pizza; eat apricots; eat yogurt; berries; eat fermented foods; eat soy the traditional way; eat mushrooms; herbs; go organic, live a stress-free life; have red wine with dinner; drink green tea; drink lots of water; combine foods; fast and meditate from time to time; use vitamin supplements; exercise; get plenty of sunshine; exercise the brain; sit still and do nothing; have faith; sing in the shower; help others; get married or get a dog; avoid the standard American diet; sleep; keep friends; and then put all these things altogether.
Do not eat anything in excess, especially foods with a high glycemic index; avoid fats; don't drink alcohol or smoke; never overeat, or over cook foods, don't eat refined sugar, too much salt, too much meat or diary products, processed foods, too much black coffee, greasy foods or too much butter. Two stars
The first part of the book describes the 5 world's healthier populations that she met.
The second part of the book goes into details over the 50 secrets (nutritional and lifestyle advises based on her observations of the daily life of the populations and based on her own research about food)
The third and last part of the book puts everything together to make it practical for us.
Then she gives us some recipes from each group (I think she could do better for that part)
I highly recommend it to anyone who plans to start a new healthy life style, a diet or simply wants to live and die healthy (It is never too late to start!). I enjoyed the neutral tone of the book. Yes we can eat a little bit of everything as long as it is close to its natural state.
I really liked the part about hemp, its oil and the description of this amazing, close to perfect food.
It is open to vegans, vegetarians or meat eaters with one common thing: Living a natural and informed life away (as much as possible) from the pollutions that our modern life generates (air, water, food, chemicals and intellectual)
Just get the book and find out by yourself!
I recommend the book Real Food by Nina Planck, and I make no money from recommending it. It opened my eyes.
