I have been studying diet, nutrition, health for fifty years. In 1972, I read Arnold Ehret's "Mucusless Diet and Healing System" and the Murray Rose book, "Faith, Love and Seaweed" and became a raw fooder for three years living in Southern California. Returning to Texas and to the diet and family that reared me, I abandoned the truth of Arnold Ehret's 1922 book. Ehret didn't have the science to back his teachings but had direct, first-hand experience on himself, desperately seeking health in a diseased body.
Myself, out of desperation, at age 72, due to lack of vitality, strength, energy, motivation, re-read Ehret. By accident, 80/10/10 appeared on an Amazon display as a similar read. I received it as an audio book (I recommend it in audio) and have given three gifts to share this no compromise nutritional truth. Graham's 80/10/10 has the science to substantiate the truth on the many food prorams circulating. In the same manner as the book, "Improving on Pritikin," 80/10/10 is "Improving on Ehret." 80/10/10 trumps other high carb/low fat diets advocated by John McDougal, Dean Ornish, Pritikin and others.
Douglas Graham has a background as a coach as well. My granddaughter is a long distance runner on scholarship at Rice University. I gave her Graham's other book on sports performance and diet.
In two weeks, I have already begun to experience a turn around in the areas of my aforementioned desperation. At the same time, I am fighting enormous battles with my food preferences/fetishes/addicitons. Talking the talk is one thing. Walking the walk is quite another. But I am convinced and convicted, anything other than Graham's 80/10/10 raw vegan diet is, "playing house," tricking oneself to live a little longer to live a little wronger. "The accepted diet of man is the tragedy of life," to paraphrase Arnold Ehret.
As an audio book on all my devices utilizing a bluetooth headset, I listen to the book while walking my dog, driving a car and lyng in bed before falling asleep. I relisten to the chapters over and over to comprehend the science and be able to share and articulate this knowledge as well as encourgagement to overcome the obstacles.
Best audio re ad book ever. One feels like it's Graham reading it. Trippingly on the tongue, Barry doesn't miss a beat, reads with a rhythum and punctuation as well as a conviction of believing this message. Hearing a book and reading one are different learning processes. Multiple hearings are necessary (as are multiple-readings at my age) and appropriate to retain and digest the message. At low ebbs and times of discouragement, the re-listening serves as inspiration and overcoming.
I indeed had an extreme reaction to 80/10/10, lamenting the many friends with ailments such as diabetes and family who will not hear the argument or be capable of practiciing the truth contained in its pages...simple as it is. I lament the public at-large who will not be able to embrace this teaching for a myriad of reasons."Broad is the path and wide is the gate that leads to destruction.
Thanks to Douglas Graham for refusing to "hedge" or compromise on the most important issue in life, one that we have been taught ignorance about: What We Are To Eat.
This book covers the topic well without getting bogged down in the technical side of things. Lots of information and details are provided in an engaging style. I would recommend this book to anyone who is seeking better health and a fuller life.
I really love the organized way the author wrote this! Made it so easy to understand the different components of the LFRV lifestyle.
Eat To Live by Joel Fuhrman, MD because Dr Furhman writes about nutritional density...eating fresh raw food in its natural state and getting the most nutrition for the calories eaten. 80-10-10 advocates this too in a format that answers questions that many have.
I appreciated the explanation of what really causes diabetes.
This book is for anyone that wants to live a vibrant healthy life. A life without all the typical health problems associated with aging. This book also gives the reader the ammunition to answer the nay-sayers in their lives as the book dis-spells many myths associated with eating raw/vegan.
First, I did not finish the audio book because I was so frustrated by chapter 4 (of 16.) Up until this point, the content had mostly been general rhetoric and repetition of other people's content. Then came chapter four. I was completely unprepared for a very graphic attack on eating meat using the example of how a predator devours every ounce of it's prey. The author completely lost me at this point due to politicizing this issue. Had he presented the reasons and science behind a vegetarian/vegan diet, I was more than willing to be educated. For others interested in purchasing this book, please be aware that it is not "carnivore friendly."
Very informative without being pushy or condescending. The author reports solid factual information and then asks the reader to make their own decision to change.
This was an interesting book to listen to. I learned a lot about Doug Graham's perspective.
I liked the basic common sense about this book and how Doug explained the reasoning behind some of his arguements.
Brett's performance was good, although I find sometimes when it's not the real author of the book it looses 'personality'.
I listened to this book while in the car. It was an easy one to catch up on each time I returned to driving.
The book often mentions his PDF that accompanies the book. Is this something we can get online after listening to the audio version?
Pet Owner Extraordinaire
I feel like this book suffered a serious case of bloat. a lot of the information was repeated over and over again. not that it wasn't good information but the book could have been much more concise and easier to get through if the author didn't reiterate the same points almost word for word nearly every chapter.
