Book Review: Mannie's Diet & Enzyme Formula
Summary from GoodReads: YOUR HEALTHY FOODS ARE KILLING YOU!At one time, "eating healthy" meant eating fruits and vegetables from the Food Pyramid charts posted on classroom walls and doctors' offices since the early 1950s. We both thought we were eating healthy foods until we started becoming ill. We soon learned that our so-called healthy foods were polluted with pesticides, preservatives and dangerous food additives. While you may think that you are eating a healthy diet, you will soon learn that many of your food choices are polluted. All humans are distinctly different and there is no perfect diet that works for everyone. Our goal is to teach you to create your own elimination-style diet based upon testing and charting your meals using our suggestions. We help you identify food intolerances, allergies and eliminate toxic ingredients while creating a safe list of foods specific to you. We include organic recipes, planned menus and charts of purines (uric acid) contained in foods that affect your pH balance. We do not suggest that you radically change the foods that you eat. Rather we suggest you switch your choices to organic choices of the same foods you are already eating. Mannie's Diet also focuses on the importance of natural enzyme supplements. You can effectively stop, minimize or control the effects of inflammation leading to illness and disease by taking natural enzyme supplements. Mannie's Diet and Enzyme Formula are neither expensive nor burdensome.The goal of our books is to help change a person's lifestyle to prevent arthritis, gout, Crohn's, IBD, IBS, heart disease, cancer, liver, kidney ailments and other illnesses and diseases caused by inflammation, allergy, intolerance or genetic predisposition. We believe based upon our experiences that Mannie's Diet and Enzyme Formula are the ultimate in preventive medicine. We cite more than 1,500 medical treatises, journals, surveys, tests and periodicals in the References section of this book in support of our facts, theories and opinions. You can look up every theory and opinion and read the source material yourself."Mr. Barling's amazing recovery can only be attributed to his research into the history of natural digestive enzymes and his formula limiting the pain and physical limitations of his arthritis, gout and IBD." - Cranford L. Scott, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of Southern California.
My Review: The first thing I pulled from this book is that Mannie was a lawyer for health related issues--even more so he was in house council for major health insurers.
Being a fitness nut and a trainer, this book caught my eye. I was really curious as to what would be in it.
This book shows a change of food lifestyle that works for pretty much anyone. It also brings to light the real difference between those nights we're properly cooking at home and when we desire that restaurant time. Should we really be eating out? Especially as much as so many of us do?
Mannie breaks down your meals for you. What you should be having and what meal it's appropriate for you to have it at. Someone training and running 7 miles a day isn't going to have the same nutrition needs as someone who has a heart condition and can't be overly active. He spells all of this out for you in this book.
There are some very useful food lists also contained in this book. To me, just having these lists, is well worth having the book. It's a must have for any kitchen. Even if you aren't the proverbial health nut, grab this book, try changing one or two things he mentioned, then see how you feel after a month, then maybe implement one or two more things. Not everything has to be all or nothing. This is one of those books that is great in allowing you notes and options to take things at your own pace and still get healthier.
