I went straight from the original SuperfoodsRx to this book, which I now see as the former's legitimate sequel.

The first thing I noticed was a slight change in tone. The information's still there, and even though the original wasn't a problem in the "dry"ness area, this has been combed-through to make it over in an even more universally accessible image.

My initial fear was that I'd plunk down the money the day this came out and it would be more of the same with everything else added for filler (a concern a few folks had with Healthstyle, which I believe was the actual sequel that introduced the newer foods). I was pleased to find that's not the case.

If you're looking for more of the same, in a sense that's there, because most of the big mention of the Superfoods themselves in the first part of the book, except in greater detail about the processes at work in the body and what exactly these different nutrients are doing for you. It's a fascinating presentation of the body and its systems, when that's discussed, even after a high school biology and college anatomy/physiology class.

It's also highly motivating to find out because many of the "features" of these foods directly affect me (the role of lutein in the eye, for example, and its relevance to the thing most of us have to look at more now than we have previously).

But the biggest perk this time around is the formatting. This is the Superfood gallery, practically applied. Aside from daily meal planners, that do the work for you and shake up the types of foods you get in each day to achieve each benefit, the low-commitment exercises are truly things you can squeeze in with no excuses into any routine.

This book takes nutrition to a new level. I now make better choices and know how these food work biochemically to create better health. It is easy to read, easy to understand and filled with sucess stories. Due to health problems and medication, I have had a hard time loosing weight. After 2 months on this diet, I have gone down a size, when no other diet worked. It has been effortless to follow and I really enjoy the food, knowing I am doing something good for my body. I will eat this way for the rest of my life.

The first thing that I want to point out is this is not a diet. Diet's usually mean food deprivation. SuperHealth is a system / lifestyle. It's basically a reworking of the food pyramid using food science. In 4 weeks I have lost 12 pounds with minimal effort. You just have to plan to go to the grocery store 1-2 times a week and buy the products on the list and eat them in a balanced way daily. If you love to cook it does give the challenge of a "Chopped" episode, because you are trying to figure out how do I use these 3-5 ingredients in meals for the day. My only criticism of the book is that much of the same information is repeated in different chapters.

Info okay if you are a beginner to nutr/health...yes eat the top benefitical vegs/fruits...BUT if I ate the jelly, etc. he talks about eating, I would be 200 lbs. I bought these JUST TO get a lot of info on combining resver/quer/soy/D for new found weight loss. Wish there was more in book on that. That put him on map.
A note too - soy ruins our thyroid - so even though I lost fast when first did the combo - soon I gained due to disrupting my metab/thyroid with soy milk. And I only used 1/2 cup (as he does). Keep that in mind.

I found useful information in this book. Essentially it is a guide to right- eating with a bit of exercise- help thrown in. It has lists and appendices which are useful, including one on the super- foods and essential vitamins. There is no information here which is so far as I can tell earth- shakingly new. Dr. Weil and a host of others will tell you pretty much the same thing.
There is the usual promotion of Omega - 3 Reservaotol , of controlling inflammation, and de- toxifying the body. There is the stress on the importance of exercise.
For myself I learned that I should eat a number of foods I have to this point resisted: almonds, avocado, blueberries, pumpkin ( I don't think I'll make this one) wild salmon. I too picked up a couple of useful exercises.
Basically I believe the book is sound. I wish however it had had a chapter on the worst foods, on foods which should be avoided at all costs. Sugar, white- bread , trans- fat stuff, fatty red meat, etc. If there are lists for the good stuff, why not lists for the bad?
The book is clearly and simply written. It does not excite or provide humor but I believe it is very good and can be very helpful.
Another plus-I did not get that much older reading it.

Thank you Dr. Pratt for providing hope and helpful instructions on how we can use diet, lifestyle and nutrition to influence the expression of the genes we have inherited. My husband's family has a strong history of macular degeneration while mine has a strong history of cancer. Your recommendations for incorporating superfoods into our meals, detoxing our bodies, and following a simple exercise plan are practical and easy to follow. My husband and I look forward to growing old together, but with our vision, hearing and health intact.
