Publisher's Summary

Suffering from chronic illness and unable to get satisfactory results from doctors, husband and wife scientists Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet took an intensely personal interest in health and nutrition. They embarked on five years of rigorous research. What they found changed their lives - and the lives of thousands of their listeners.
In Perfect Health Diet, the Jaminets explain in layman's terms how anyone can regain health and lose weight by optimizing nutrition, detoxifying the diet, and supporting healthy immune function. They show how toxic, nutrient-poor diets sabotage health, and how on a healthy diet, diseases often spontaneously resolve.
Perfect Health Diet tells you exactly how to optimize health and make weight loss effortless with a clear, balanced, and scientifically proven plan to change the way you eat - and feel - forever.

Good luck following this

Even though I'm positive that the ultimate message of this book is sound, it is so poorly presented that I felt dizzy by the end of it. I've read several other books that present the same information with more, and better, supporting references. The author tends to make generalizations that aren't properly backed up. In more than one place he clearly says that there are no studies proving something and then recommends going ahead and doing it. I thought I'd scream if he told me one more time about how rats and mice are affected by this or that, making an unproven correlation to human health. Again, I think that anyone who is concerned enough about their health to try to follow this author's diet will likely be healthier than someone who eats like a typical American. However, if you want to understand why to do the things he is suggesting it would be best to seek other sources of information. Also, there isn't a good summary guide to the Perfect Health Diet, you almost have to make notes while listening if you want to get it straight. Maybe he is selling something on his website that clarifies it. I do not feel confident enough in his presentation of the information to bother with it. Plenty of other good, clear, and reliable info on this topic to be had.

Just for the record I started following much of the type of things that are suggested in this book years ago and I maintain superior health to those my age and younger. A bit of review wasn't a waste of time.

While listening to this book I have been on the PHD for two and half months. I am in the military and physical fitness is a major portion of my training. The results I have seen, cravings during fasting minimal, decreased and maintained body fat composition, and decreased acne. I am happy with science and the results of the diet. The discrepancy I have with this book is the reader reports, I don't want to hear continuous infomercials on the PHD, I already purchased the book.
