Recently, I have grown dissatisfied with the title of my book “Diet Wise”. It seems far too many people see the word diet and make assumptions (which are wrong, anyway). I don’t think people understand the widespread and extreme problems of food reactions or the vital necessity of working out one’s own personal safe food plan. You are going to eat a LOT of food in your lifetime; it doesn’t make sense to allow more than a fraction of it to be toxic for you. But most people never take the trouble to work out which foods are right for them and which are not.
There is an illogical supposition that, because foods feed and nourish us, therefore they must all be safe. But I have seen foods cripple people, kill them early, make life tragically miserable, cause chronic pain and disease, paralysis, destroy mental function, make people violent and ruin social skills, to name just a few problems.
And I’m not talking about junk foods: I’m talking about wholefoods, fresh and organically grown.
Neither is this just a matter of food allergies, though that’s what we used to call it. Today we know that a lot of it is genetic incompatibility to certain foods. Due to some tiny variation in a gene, the person cannot digest and utilize the food safely like the rest of us: it becomes toxic to them. This can apply apply to ANY food and I am often asked with amazement about the lady who had severe colitis for 22 years, just because of an intolerance of lettuce. Once she gave up the “healthy” salads, she made a full recovery!
But I have 10,000s of cases like that. It’s an almost unversal phenomenon; it’s just that people are not being told what to look for or what to do.
The trouble is: most people who are being made sick by foods don’t even realize it! That’s where “Diet Wise” comes in…
Authors who publish set diet plans (The Blood Group Diet, The Metabolic Type Diet, The South Beach Diet, etc.) are missing an important point which is that NO set plan is–or could be–right for everyone. Some might be suited but others will be made very ill on the same plan and be forced to abandon it, because they react adversely to the recommended foods.
All the rave testimonials which are collected and published are, naturally, from those who are suited by the allowed foods. Those who are made sick are never published–of course! That would affect the author’s royalties!
The unsuspecting public are tricked into believing such-and-such a diet is good (“Look at the results people are getting!”), the buy the book; sales soar; it becomes a “successful diet”; therefore more people buy it and the nonsense continues.
So many millions of these diet books are sold, it’s an almost overwhelming task to try to educate people to the truth. Even health practitioners don’t seem to understand it at all. But duty requires me to try valiantly and I shalln’t give up on spreading the important message as widely as I can.
If you want to learn why I think choosing the right foods is important, how you do it, and why it is INTELLIGENT to do so, get yourself a copy of “Diet Wise”, right now ($19.95 plus shipping).
The content won’t change much at all, even with the new title, so you won’t be missing out!
