I was most interested in the extensive section on fasting. Because I’m on medication, I’m not able to go without food so fasting never seemed like an option to me. The author explained four types of fasting: normal fast, absolute fast, partial fast, and rotational fast. The latter two are options that don’t require complete abstinence from food, but focus on abstaining from particular types of food or rotating abstinence from different foods. I learned a lot from his teaching, especially about the health (and mental health) benefits of fasting.
Many of his chapters go into more technical detail than I wanted about scientific names of mono-whatevers and tri-somethings. Perhaps someday I’ll be more educated on these matters, but it was more than I was prepared to take-in right now. So I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I’m sure it’s useful information to those who can grasp the technical details. Even so, I was able to skim these portions and still get helpful information on each topic covered.
Overall, I’d say it’s worth a read, whether or not you like the science parts. I learned several things, and I’m sure you will, too.
I have 45 years of nutrition study. I found this to be one of two best nutrition books of all time. (The other being Let's Eat Right to Keep Fit, by Davis). I only found two things wrong in the book, which is an excellent report coming from critical me. The author said to limit beef and to limit salt, though he had just got finished whole chapters explaining that the Bible speaks well of each of those. I say that the author's premise was "what the Bible says", and the Bible does not say to limit them. So, he should not have said in this book to limit salt or beef.
Read this book to learn interesting facts, like beef muscle meats are 98% clean of toxins, beef fat as in that layer of fat around a New York strip steak is 50% toxic, pork muscle and it's fat are 50% toxic. Learn what is a good oil, why you need salt, which sugars are best, and more.
The author has good humor, no condemnation for disagreeing with him, and makes a good point about food not being the basis of salvation.
This book can be used as a reference for your family about each food group, why God designed it the way he did, why you should eat it, and why it is good for you. The many scriptures reveal that God has always had quite a bit to say about food and even why he declared that some foods should not be eaten. The health IQ survey itself is worth the price of the book but there is so much more. It's a book you will want to read over and over again and give as gifts to others to help them get some wisdom on the often confusing subject of what we should eat.
