Weknow it must be related to foods we are ingesting, but with so much conflicting information on the market,usually tainted by self-serving advertisers, it can be difficult to choose a diet that is truly wholesome andbeneficial to our health. Yuri Elkaims Eating for Energy provides some encouraging information about a"back to basics" approach to eating that just may save lives.As an athlete, Elkaim found that the diet he was consuming, which was high in fruits, vegetables, andprotein, was not providing him with the energy he expected. His studies in Holistic Nutrition led him todiscover a new way of viewing how the human body processes food. As a fitness and nutrition coach, hedeveloped a diet based on whole foods that eliminates many of the toxins that are so detrimental to ourhealth.Eating for Energy begins with quite a bit of scientific information. Elkaim explains how diffferent foodsinteract with the human body, breaking the foods down into their smallest particles. He demonstrates whysome foods were not meant for human consumption, and how the chemical makeup of certain foods isaltered during the cooking process, negatively affecting the nutritional value.Elkaims reasoning makes perfect sense. He explains why some people who believe themselves to benutritionally fit are still plagued with health concerns and excess body fat. He also explains why someonewho appears to be physically fit may not necessarily be healthy.He provides a section specifically for athletes who may require a high caloric intake. There is a 12-weekmeal plan for transitioning to a whole foods diet. He closes the book with pages of recipes for dishesincluded in the meal plan. The book is incredibly thorough and contains all the information the reader willneed to embark on this new lifestyle.There is a catch, however, in that many of the foods and supplements the author touts so highly may notbe available at your local grocer. Youll most likely need to visit a health food store for the supplements.Many of the fruits and vegetables are difficult to find, as well, especially since the goal is to find themorganically grown and unprocessed. High cost grocers and specialty stores like Trader Joes will be anecessity to adhere to the diet completely, unless you have access to a farmers market with organicallygrown produce year round.
Eating for Energy is well-written and easy to understand. However, the formatting makes it difficult to readat times. The font is very small and close together, and the margins should be widened so the reader doesnot have to break the spine of the book to be able to read across an entire paragraph. This is especiallyapplicable to the recipe pages, where the reader may need to prop the book open and have their handsfree while cooking.Eating for Energy is an impressive nutritional guide. Even implementing parts of Elkaims advice withoutadopting the entire plan can be beneficial to readers. Understanding how the body processes food is animportant step in nutritional health. Perhaps as more people adopt an organic, whole foods diet, grocerswill begin to make these types of foods more readily available."Good read, good to go back and reference, July 24, 2008By Reader (Toronto, Canada) - posted on Amazon.com"A friend recommended this book to me.
