There are gems in this book worth reading... a section about the benefits of specific foods and about a 1 to 2 page/each guide to foods to eat for certain problems (i.e. a page or two for all things "allergy") but as I bought this book as a nutritious guide to healing and wellness, I found "Chef MD's" next new diet plan ridiculous. If only I had picked this up at a bookstore and thumbed through to the "Week 3, make these recipes" such as: "Skillet Chilaquiles with Cactus Paddles, Eggs, and Kale" "Bison Steak and Broccoli Salad" "Grille Citrus Trout Over Crunchy Mediterranean Slaw" and a few more approachable recipes like "Creamy Goat Cheese Pesto Omlet"
If this delightful cookbook-turned-nutrion guide came equipped with a personal chef, it would marvelous! I appreciate the concept, truly, but someone like myself (much more inclined to a paleo diet) may be easily mislead to hope for a handbook to health not a diet plan peppered with health benefits backed up by random (and often vaguely relevant) studies.
