I was attracted to read this book as over the last few months I have been reading about people eating a raw food diet. I am not yet on the diet, but have been thinking about trying it. I have read mainly good, but a small amount of negative stories of how people have found the diet. I think this book explains brilliantly what our diet should approximately be like. That of chimpanzees of course! It all makes sense. We have almost the same DNA as them, so why shouldn't we eat like them? Victoria conducted a lot of research into the chimps' diets and found that they eat a high percentage of greens - i.e. dark green vegetables. She found that her and her family's diet was lacking in greens despite them already being on a raw food diet, so they started to have green smoothies daily. The family noticed huge improvements in their health, and have continued to drink them everyday since. She decided to do a study of volunteers from a town who drank her green smoothies daily for 30 days - some of them on a standard cooked diet. It seems that most of them found huge health improvements including their general energy levels and quality of sleep. This is a truly inspirational book and has personally got me thinking that I will give eating raw foods a go, firstly by drinking a green smoothie a day. I would to like hear how other people's views too.
