The book covers a review of various other diets from macrobiotics to PMS. If this is what you are looking for then this is helpful.
However, if you would like to be able to evaluate yourself and then follow a specific diet style read "The Metabolic Typing Diet" by Wolcott. After taking an extensive questionnaire you will type yourself and proceed from there. The book is an excellent read and delivers what you would expect.
I am well-read and have been told by those with a master's degree in nutrition that I understand the chemical process of nutrition better than they do. I say this to help the reader of this review understand that I was expecting a detailed book on 'The Acid/Alkaline solution to the Food-Mood-Health Puzzle" not a book on how bad other programs are and that more research isn't possible because the Dr. ran out of money.
This is the first negative review I've ever written as well.
I will continue looking to find a book that addresses the acid/alkaline issue.
I'm vegetarian since more than 20 years and my wife and children are. I'm sure we don't have all the same necessities as the book explains. The criteria for determining acidifying and alcalinysing foods makes very much sense and it makes me think I'm in the category of people who feels good eating meet and fat. I won't never do it in spite of the book advises because I'm a professional danser who looks at least 12 years younger than most of the people of my age, so I cannot be that wrong. But I eat spontaneously a vegetarian variation with lots of avocados, nuts and soforth and what is good for me is not good for my wife and we know it. My family and I choose to be vegan (no dairy, eggs or meat) for human, economical and environmental reasons. Also all these animal products are expensive to consume and are plenty of hormones, pesticides, antibiotiques, vaccines etc.. We didn't stop meat, eggs and dairy products because of health problems. But we feel even better.
I'm sure that using the same acid/alcaline criteria described in this book there can be found enough foods and suplements that are not from animal origin. I bet that this new knowledge will improve also our health in spite of been vegan. I understand better why the very different needs in my family.
By the way, my family and I eat just raw food and I'm sure that makes also a difference. Each of us has an improved instinct for his particular needs after our tastes were acostumed to "living fods".
As I said. This discovery of the venous PH exposed here is one of the most important discoveries that I have read about and that's why I recomend it.
I just say that Wiley's research is not deep enough to be totaly usefull. I read it just yesterday and I'll make my own research about it and I suggest "acidics" to look for alternatives to eating meat at every meal. If it's about protein or aminoacids I'm sure there is another way. Maybe "miso" or "tempeh", which are usualy thought to be alcalising and are very high in proteins would be good enough, or the contrary, or coconuts, which have much saturated fats, or sprouted lentils etc. but they are not in his too short list of foods so we have to test them. When we eat raw, we need much less proteins which are very much used to synthesize enzimes. Then the rules aplying to rawfoodists can't be the same. The absorbtion of nutrients is increased tens of times after a while. There is a rawfoodist I know that makes hours of exercise with just an orange as meal.
I'm also sure the diet with plenty of animal products is very poor in enzimes and other nutrients.
For exemple, he doesn't tell the difference between eating raw and cooked tomatoes and I'm sure there is. Especially in a midium term. It doesn't make the difference between cheap salt and raw sea salt etc.
For me, just not to feel sick is not enough. Age normaly is not enough either.
This book doesn't describe the non-plus-ultra of nutrition. It's too incomplete but I haven't found it's valuable complementary information elsewhere so BUY IT!!. Also buy books about raw food such as the Boutenko family's books.
Other than the concept, this book is lousy. The author doesn't really go into detail about how to individualize your diet accordingly. Sure, he lists simple tests you can do, but I don't think suggesting drinking black coffee is a valid way of determining your body type.
This book has food lists of what is safe to eat for the three body types mentioned. This section is good, gives you a good idea of what foods to eat if you're a fast or slow oxidizer. But the author suggests eating fatty cuts of meat, drinking black coffee, and some other pretty unhealthy ways of "balancing" yourself. To suggest something harmful to "balance" yourself is pretty insane. I don't recommend this book.
