Editorial Reviews


“David Wolfe, in a beautifully authentic way, plants the awareness of the power of a live-food diet and healthy thinking that is transforming to each individual and to the very planet itself.”
—Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author of Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition
“Anyone can benefit from David Wolfe’s knowledge and understanding of raw-food nutrition.”
—Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power
“This breakthrough book not only demonstrates a profound understanding of Nature’s physical laws of health-building, but also masterfully integrates the under-recognized motivational, mental, and emotional components needed to create overall success in life. A unique contribution to the field and I highly recommend it to all success seekers.”
—Viktoras Kulvinskas MS, author of Survival Into the 21st Century

“This book advocates a simple, yet profound, plant-based diet that would heal many illnesses, support the growing organic food industry, shut down the abusive animal-farming cartels, and reverse much of the damage humans have done to this planet. It is a wonderful book and receives my highest recommendation.”
—John McCabe, author of Surgery Electives: what to Know Before the Doctor Operates and Plastic Surgery Hopscotch
“Beginning with thoughts, beliefs, goals, and faith, David [Wolfe] lays the groundwork for the Sunfood mindset… Then concepts such as food and karma, the origins of our diet, scientific theory, and detoxification take you deeper. ...There is an extreme amount of information packed into this book, and it isn’t just for the 100% raw foodie. You can commit to any level of live/raw foods that you feel comfortable with, but if you do dive in full, David offers strategies for your transition. A great resource list, and recipes/meal plans round off the entire presentation… The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe is a timeless book that seems to get better with age.”

By O. Merce Brown HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 22, 2006
Format: Hardcover

David Wolfe's Sunfood Diet Success System could be regarded as the raw foodist's bible. It is the latest edition of his classic book, updated and made gorgeous by library binding, spectacular Kirlian photography of raw foods throughout, and cutting edge information about raw foods.

The new Sunfood Diet Success System will appeal to entry-level raw foodists and experienced raw foodists. It is a "success system" rather than strictly a raw foods book because it is packed with David Wolfe's philosophy about raw foods and life in general---most of this is positve thinking and personal transformation philosophy applied to raw foods. In my opinion, it is all very helpful and inspirational.

It is difficult to say enough good things about this book. If you are interested in the healthy lifestyle of raw foods, buy it.

Negatives about the book would be David Wolfe's poetry---I'm not a big poetry fan, and there is quite a bit of it. However, it's inspirational and motivational too, so this is just a personal preference of mine.

Another negative to be aware of is that David Wolfe, as the number one raw foodist in the world, is very extreme and intense...he forages for wild foods when he is caught without healthy foods, something most of us would not have the knowledge or interest to do. This is part of what makes him such a committed raw foodist and raw food "hero" to me, but it may be hard for many people to relate to. That said, most of the book is very practical.

It is an expensive book, but a beautiful one, and well worth the price. This will be a classic, and is definitely my favorite raw food book of about 40 that I own.

David Wolfe's book dicusses how you can create massive changes in your health using the raw food principles he teaches.

I've listened to all his audios and also attended an event of his in Montreal and I find his message to be fresh and sensible when it comes to nutrition. Though I will warn you, if you follow many of the FDA guidelines you might have a rub with this book and Wolfe's nutritional information. It is extremely cutting-edge.

David's main argument is that cooked foods are dead foods. Foods that contain life contain more "live value" or the enzymes, nutrients, and energy that we need to regenerate, rejuvenate, and re-energize.

The raw food diet has its benefits and his instruction will help you navigate through some of the challenges you may face. He also does have a disclaimer that will tell you that not everyone is meant for a 100% raw food diet for reasons that are physiological, mental, and social. I've never been 100% raw, but at times have gone a few months sustained at 90% or so. I think the major issues I've encountered have been my running schedule and not being able to get enough foods in me that will repair muscle. In my particular case, those foods are some cooked meats.

The book is jumpy at times, though still an informative read. One nice aspect is that you will find his outline of a weekly plan for someone who wants to go all raw or 80/20.

This is a good book for someone who is embarking on a raw foods diet. Like other reviewers I also enjoyed the fact that the author had meal plans in the back so you could get an idea on what you would eat in a day.
On the brutally honest side, I thought the volume of poetry was unnessecary, and I did find the degree of motivational hype in spots pretty distasteful. I also did not like all of the references to superfoods and expensive items that are currently being marketed by the author on the web.
If you prepare yourself for these pitfalls before reading the book however, you will find it a good resource. It has some great info about liver cleansing and is a good practical introduction to raw food philosophy. The advice about the types of food to eat while on this diet ie fruit:vegetables:fat is very comprehensive and good practical advice that should help you adopt a sustainable approach to the diet and ensure enjoyment of the lifestyle. In general I like the author and feel he is quite genuine in his desire to help people experience greater health. If it didn't have all the marketing in it, I would possibly have put it in the "great gifts to humankind" book category (now I'm getting cheesy!). Bit of a shame therefore that the author feels the need to capitalise on his great advice.

After many months, almost a year of trying to get a hold of this book, I finally got my hands on this precious gem. The Sunfood Diet is everything I expected and much more. David Wolfe does an excellent job of explaining the art of consuming only raw food for optimal health and nutrition. This is not a book you will read once and put on a shelf to collect dust. You will read and reread it over and over again. This is not just a book about the raw food diet; it is a book about life and how to live it more abundantly with vibrant health. From the very first chapter to the very last puntuation mark, Mr.Wolfe captures and holds your attention. His prose is clear and easy to understand. Beautiful quotes and poetry adorn the pages throughout the book. An added bonus were the beautiful kirlian photographs showing the life energy emanating from live fruits and vegetables. I am convinced now more than ever that the raw food diet is for me. I wish all Americans would come to this truth. The sooner we realize that the Standard American Diet is killing us the better off we will be. Kudos to you Mr. Wolfe and thankyou for opening my eyes, and for writing an excellent book.
