by Dr. David Friedman
During his 25 years as a holistic practitioner and health expert on syndicated TV and radio, Dr. David Friedman has interviewed hundreds of world-renowned doctors and bestselling authors. From proponents of a Vegan, Paleo, Mediterranean Diet to a Gluten Free and Low Carb Diet, the opinions are as different as night and day.
After becoming frustrated with all the conflicting research and anecdotes, Dr. Friedman created a common science meets common sense approach that answers that big question: What are we supposed to eat?!
Readers will discover never-before-heard nutritional and dieting advice that will ensure they get the maximum benefits from their food and dietary supplements. Food Sanity explores the fads and fictions then offers a definitive blueprint on how to eat in the unhealthiest developed country in the world…the good ole’ U.S.A.
Readers will learn:
- Meats vs. Beets- The battle between Paleo and Vegetarian diet
- Dr. Friedman debunks the Paleo Diet with forensic evidence proving cavemen were not carnivorous hunters and they rarely ate red meat.
- Eating fruit can contribute to obesity, diabetes and heart disease
- Dr. Friedman’s green, yellow, red light chart shows which fruits to eat in moderation (high in sugar and low in fiber) and which ones can be eaten with no limitations.
- Pigs don’t sweat which causes toxins to remain in their meat
- Because of the toxic outer fat layer, if a pig is bitten by a rattlesnake, the snake is more likely to die than the pig! Dr. Friedman shows the best way to shop for pork and how to choose portions that are furthest away from the outer fat layer.
- The mercury fish farce
- Health experts say to limit fish consumption to twice a week because many varieties contain dangerous levels of mercury, a neurotoxin. Dr. Friedman reveals unequivocal proof that naturally derived mercury found in fish is not a health concern. He explores cultures that eat fish daily (three times per day) whose blood tests show no mercury toxicity! Even pregnant females and their new born children are not at risk from eating fish.
- Exercise causes weight gain!
- Exercise stimulates hunger! Research from the Journal of Obesity, found women who exercise eat two times more food than those that don’t exercise. When someone exercises it causes them to crave more food, eat more, which in turn negates the weight-loss benefits of exercise. Food Sanity shares the three foods to eat prior to and after exercise that will help create weight loss.
- ABC’s of choosing the safest and healthiest dietary supplements
- Many vitamins and mineral supplements are created from the same toxic chemicals used to make nail polish, laundry detergent, paint, gasoline, and other industrial products. No wonder current research has shown Vitamin A causes lung cancer, Vitamin D causes DNA damage, and Vitamin D increases a person’s risk of stroke!
- How to shop for safe and healthy fish, chicken, pork and eggs
- Seeing “all natural,” “hormone-free,” and “organic” on the label isn’t synonymous with being healthy.
- Ten tips for avoiding GMOs
- The numbers on the stickers you find on produce indicate how the product was grown: A 5-digit number beginning with 8 is a genetically modified food.
- Healthy alternatives to cow’s milk
- Drinking cow’s milk is linked to osteoporosis, diabetes and obesity and is not a good source of calcium or protein. Almond milk contains more calcium and protein than cow’s milk.
- Buying organic foods that won’t break the bank
- Healthy organic almonds, cashews, flax, or sunflower seeds are available for a very low price when you bag them yourself.
