“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.”

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 book helped fill in crucial gaps of knowledge that will now empower me to become whole again. It is also a great tool, providing you with exactly what you need to know in order to help inform others.
This book is expensive, but it was well worth the money. If you can't afford to buy it go check it out at your local library or get it on the inter-library shipping program.
There are no words for the feeling one experiences once he/she gets into eating raw. My first three months into it was simply put amazing. You find yourself laughing for no apparent reasons. You sleep less, and your need to eat decreases. I could go on and on about the benefits of eating a raw vegan diet.
Get this book, read it, indulge yourself into raw, organic, wild foods, and experience the change it will give you.
Thanks David Wolfe, well done.
