I believe this book saved my life.

I read this book several years ago and I stopped drinking coffee, soda and I stopped eating all dairy products. I believe because I did this I was able to survive stage III ovarian cancer. I want to thank Harvey and Marilyn diamond for this.

This book should have been and could have been 2 hours tops

I think the principles of the book and the overall message are clear and interesting. However, it feels like the writes had a word count minimum. Many times it’s the same message repeated over and over with different power words. I recommend anyone that is interested in this book and it’s message google the main points or buy the book and skip all the fluff.

informative and motivating

Great information about how food interacts with your body. The information in this book feels much more trustworthy and makes a lot more sense than a lot of the new age diets. It is also simple to follow and implement. On day 1 of reading, I was already encouraged to make changes to my diet.

Helpful and encouraging for someone who doesn’t know where to start.

This book gave me a starting point and a launchpad. It breaks it down into simple and realistic habits. My goals going into reading this book were to get into marathon running, lose 20 pounds, more energy, and recover faster from workouts. Excited to incorporate what I learn in this book to my lifestyle as I pursue these goals.

Still Relevant and Effective After All These Years!!!

When I consider the books that have the greatest impact on my life and practices, this book comes in second only to tbe Bible. No exaggeration! The principle of high water content foods alone has impacted how I eat, feed my family, teach students and patients! Many of the recipes in this book have served me well for 35 years or so! Long ago I cooked my way through the 28 day menus. Learning ingredients and techniques prepared me for years of creative cooking! I can’t say enough good about this book and the principles! Most marked physical effects for me are increased energy/decreased fatigue, powder soft skin vs. oily, and weight loss. For me, it’s the final word in eating. No gimmicks, no exclusive products to buy, just good sense. Thank you, @harveydiamond and @marilyndiamond! ❤️

If you read only one book in your life...Read this

Packed with life changing information. I am looking for to this new and improved version of my life. I immediately started implementing the knowledge gained while reading this book. Everything makes perfect sense.

By the way the chapters are complete.It's just the way the chapters follow to the next..meaning the last sentence is actually the heading of the next chapter. The narrative sounds good, it works!

Great info

However the missing pages on the book like the grocery list are a turn off. Which they actually followed a script page of the book along with the audio like the audio on most Bible apps do

the book is good but bad audible

the book is fabulous but the audible is cut at the final of all chapters, I'm so sad. I was looking for this book for long. plus the costumer service can't do anything about it...
