I am a reformed vegan. I will say this again and again with no shame. I was a longtime vegetarian who went vegan after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. I thought I was eating “cleaner” and “healthier”. I guess I did feel morally superior but physically I felt like crap and I never felt any relief from autimmune disease flare-ups. Then I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I felt like my body was turning against me even though I thought I was healthy. After finding out t
I’ve loosely been following the dietary guidelines for about a month and I have experienced:
-ridiculously improved energy. I mean insane. And I have almost-normal sleep now!
-weight loss without much effort
-almost nonexistent sugar cravings (before this sugar was my heroin. I mean, shakes and chills and visions of goblins until I had an hourly fix)
-okay, this is going to be harder to explain but I have this definition I never had before in my face and body. Like, contours I never knew I had. And it’s not the weight loss because even when I was terribly thin I didn’t have quite the same definition. I mean, it’s magic!
Plus I’ve had about 99% less joint swelling! Magic, I tell you! I will get off this soapbox now!
So, as another review said, this is more textbook than cookbook so I have a feeling I will be reading this forever. The general idea is grass-fed, organic meats, full-fat dairy (and lots of it!), coconut oil, organic produce and then only two parts I haven’t ventured in to, lacto-fermented foods and organ meats. The former because I tried to make fermented carrots and the smell was too vile to try them and the latter because I’m still too sqeamish to venture inside the animal. Also, I haven’t had raw dairy yet because there is only one certified raw dairy farm in Texas and it is a few hours from where I live. I MISS YOU CALIFORNIA I WILL COME BACK SOON!!!
There are 7500 characters remaing for this review. I wish I could use them all. 7481.
My stepmother gave me this book for my birthday. Looking it over at first I thought– “Wow, she thinks I’m a spelt-eating, raw-milk drinking, conspiracy theorist lunatic.” This book begins with 80 pages of single space size 10 font INFORMATION– about how the USDA, the American Cancer Association, and your pediatritian are all part of a sinister alliance to give you cancer, heart disease, cavities, and arthritis, and about the vast conspiracy of misinformation in the health and food world, and m
it was amazing
As a child I lived in the city, playing outside, watching a lot of tv and chasing down the ice cream truck until my dad remarried when I was 8 and we moved to a small farm. On that farm, our family ate EXACTLY how she teaches in this book. We milked our cow and goats and drank raw milk. We raised and butchered our own cow, pigs and chickens. My step-mom made us eat liver (organs) and lacto-fermented foods like sauerkraut and pickled veggies. She was German but now I am wondering if she lived by
We have a son that was born with heart defects so I am constantly reading books that will teach me how to feed him to protect him against worsening his heart disease and this book takes us back to eating a diet before all the modern inventions ruined our food. We are doing some things right like eating eggs from a neighbors chickens, eating butter (never margarine), we only use coconut oil and cold-pressed olive oil and never any oils that aren’t expeller pressed, we buy all organic fruits and veggies and plant a garden and we only eat beef and chicken from a local farm. We also just found a source for raw milk since homogenized/pasteurized milk is one of the main sources for heart disease.
Before I found this book I already knew of Weston Price (a dentist) and his travels to remote tribes and villages where he studied their teeth and their diets. It is amazing what he learned! If any tribe was near civilization he always cautioned them not to EVER eat anything from the “white man’s stores”! We would be doing a lot better if we did the same. I am a big supporter of co-ops and farmers markets! If we didn’t travel so much, we would probably have our own small farm. I actually appreciate my childhood experience even though I didn’t like my mean step-mother! Read this book!
