Bears don’t interrupt their hibernation unless there’s an important reason, and neither do I. I’m crawling out of my den to make one recommendation.

Buy Perfect Health Diet by Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet.

Here’s my review: This is the single best book on diet I’ve ever read.

Paul Jaminet is one of the most original, insightful voices in health today, and let’s support him when it counts.

Here’s how:

Okay, time to hibernate again — dreaming about wild salmon, berries, and drizzling honey on sexy lady bears.

     hi John,

    I bought the first book and I agree.  It’s simply the best nuttition book I have ever read.  Do you recommend buying the second book as well, or is it just an updated version of the original?

      By all means get the second book.  It is updated, better presented, has a large index, and has half again as much brand new informaton.  In addition, the material is chunked in smaller chapters, making it easier to retrieve previously read information.  Also, Paul’s and Shou-Ching’s personalities are ever-present in the new book.  The price on Amazon is increasing every few days.  It is presently $17.61, up from $15.

     Hi John,

    1st time visit to your blog…

    My favorite diet book of all time is Protein Power by the Dr. Eades(s).

    I’ve been reading a lot of reviews for PHD lately.  Is it better than Protein Power?  What new insite is there to learn if you following a Paleo diet and working out?

    Best Regards,

    Happy New Year,

    Agree–I’ve only gotten better, healthier, stronger, leaner, better, better, better since I followed more of a PHD way of eating instead of straight Paleo…I always tell people to go straight Paleo/Primal if you’re looking to lose weight, but if you’re already in shape and are an athletic person, eat your safe starches! Go PHD.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    At this time, the best book I’ve read on diet is The Wellness and Prevention Paradigm by Dr. James Chestnut.

    • First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a hard time
      clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure
      in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply
      just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
