About the only positive feedback I can give for this book is that it is worth the price. While the author does seem to care about offering helpful advice to those who want to lose weight and does emphasize mostly unprocessed healthy foods, some of the nutritional advice is dubious at best.
The whole argument about foods being acidifying and alkalizing and what that means to metabolic homeostasis is not well founded in scientific fact. The claim that some citrus is acidifying and other citrus is alkalizing is ridiculous given the chemical nature of all citrus. Claiming that everyone should have a glass of orange juice every mornining is not sound. For a diabetic, a big glass of any juice is an invitation to a soaring blood glucose especially if not accompanied by other foods.
The idea that dietary maxims inscribed on index cards has any effect on eating behavior is not supported by anything other than the author's opinion. The book has far too many absolutes to be acceptable to many people and the lack of flexibility is not compatible with success in the real world.
Even if the nutritional advice were sound, the wprk is in dire need of editing for grammar and composition. A good try with I think a good heart, but no sale in professionalism in the writing or the advice.
