5.0 out of 5 stars Every page is an inspiration! 13 Jun 2003
By Melanie - Published on Amazon.com
This was my first book that got me into the "raw movement." It changed my life, touching every aspect of my being. I cannot express my gratitude toward David Wolfe for creating this masterpiece. Anyone seeking a life of optimism, joy, and success on a personal level should own The Sunfood Diet Success System!
Wolfe's book contains 36 chapters of health transformation. Only ten or so of these specifically deal with the diet, while the book's key focus is on the mental transformation required. Each chapter has exercises at the end for the physical (diet) and mental changes. As recommended by David, keeping a journal and log of your diet will help with the transformation. The book begins with six chapters that ask you to take a look into your life. "Beliefs," "Goals," "Thoughts are Things," and "Faith" are a few of the chapters that promote your well-being on a spiritual level.
Starting with chapter 7, "The Sunfood Diet," the book introduces us to the diet of uncooked fruits, vegetables, and nuts. For those of you who have been wondering about this lifestyle, it's eating foods in their natural, unadulterated state. It is a step further than veganism, being called "raw-veganism." David thoroughly covers all aspects of eating raw. Items discussed are detoxification, food-combining, the SunFood Triangle (new pyramid), hybridized food, common questions, myths, and the wonders of a diet free of toxicity.
"Your idea of the world (what you believe the world is) manifests everything in your life. When you change your idea of the world, the world itself changes. Essentially, your mission isn't to set the world right, but simply to set yourself right. The world does not change, we change."
The Sunfood Diet Success System is filled with all of David's love. Every page is an inspiration. I can't begin to express my gratitude for the information that was revealed to me in this book. Its knowledge has continued to enlighten me through the last year. Inspirational, motivational; it's everything. Please get this book - do it for yourself. --Reviewed by Dan Jerke for vegetarianteen.com.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a spot on the EGO side! 8 Jan 2003
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
I found this to be a pretty good and encouraging resource but it has a couple of serious down points which you may want to consider before investing so much time in reading it.
Basically, as with most NFL books, the author thinks he is the worlds' greatest authority on the subject and tells you so in no uncertain terms. It's ego in print and the tone can be rather irritating if, like me, you prefer modesty in authors and them not to insult everyone who thinks something else and condemn their ideas as just being "cooked".
Also, the author picks scriptures out of the Bible wildly out of context and uses them to support his view when they are talking about nothing of the sort.
[Another reviewer] has a good point too about too much space being taken up with Wolfe's views on things, even if some are interesting and even inspiring - I like the bit about reading for an hour a day on a subject making you an authority on it in 3 years, a national authority in 5 years and an international one in 7 years, BUT it does depend on whether you're reading worthwhile and valid info on the subject....
If you can look past all this nonsense, then go ahead and read this book. If you prefer something more moderate, then Fred Patenaude's "The Raw Secrets" or Karen Knowler and Susie Miller's "Feel Good Food" are much more the thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just about Raw foods, which is an essential message 15 April 2003
By Mark T. Brody - Published on Amazon.com
I know. When you pick up a book about a diet, you want to read the goodies about what foods to eat and how to achieve optimal physical fitness. It's not that easy. This book is one of a kind in that it focuses on a lot more than diet. In the true sense of what it means to be healthy, diet is only a small fraction of what a truly healthy person really is. Don't get me wrong. Raw foods are a key to unlocking the greatness within you, but it's more than that. You have to find inner peace and change your thinking. David Wolfe points this out in many of his chapters throughout the book.
I enjoy Wolfe's approach to wellness, although he got a little carried away with some of his suggestions as far as disease conditions are concerned. I'm in total agreement with him as far as individualizing the diet according to your own needs, but then he goes and recommends certain ratios to overcome certain ailments. If a 50% greens and 50% fats diet can help one person overcome candida, it's going to make another person more sick. I was hoping to see more Ayurvedic type recomendations according to body type then to give generalized advice. That's my only problem with this book.
I loved the sections on minerals, detox, and his positive, uplifting messages about life. David Wolfe is a salesman, yes. He's very good at marketing. His unnecessary plugs to his website and to his product catalog didn't go unnoticed, but it could be very helpful to someone who lives in the middle of the woods and doesn't have access to some of the superfoods and formulas that can help you get off cooked foods. Anyone who's raw knows it's not as easy as just giving up cooked foods cold turkey. You need to ween yourself off cooked foods, just like drugs. His products can be helpful with that.
All in all, great book. Unlike anything else out there right now. It could be improved upon, but for when it was written and for the powerful messages it delivers, it's one heck of a read. I'd recommend it to anyone. Even if you're not interested in becoming a raw foodist, you can still greatly benefit from reading this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth It 6 Jan 2003
By Matthew Bello - Published on Amazon.com
I feel though David Wolfe brings up some good information he assumes many things where his knowledge comes short. For example: he doesn't understand the digestion of fats very well. His advice can be very misleading. He prescribes a formula for balancing a candida overgrowth very poorly without good evidence. Much of it is very general.
I feel that in this book David Wolfe is trying to sell the raw vegan diet instead of just spreading the word. He constantly recommends his company's products at his website. He has an entire chapter about how great true raw olives are and then says at the end of the chapter that his store is the only reliable source to get good olives. What a salesman. I felt like I was reading a catalogue in many parts of the book.
The beginning and end of the book have nothing to do with the sunfood diet but more about his philosophy of life. I bought the book thinking I would have 300 pages of raw food information. The book is about two-thirds nonsense. He even goes as far as to give financial advice. I feel that David Wolfe turned a pretty good 100 page book into an overpriced 300 page catalogue on how to think like him and buy his products. I don't suggest the book there are better out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Book! Inspiring 7 Oct 2004
By T. Hartle - Published on Amazon.com
This book is not just a Raw Food book but also very inspirational and educational. I couldn't put it down and read it in only a few days. Other reviewers have mentioned that he mentions his business in the book, I find nothing wrong with this and it is done in a very tactful and non-intrusive way. I believe the way he mentions changing your inner self before changing the way you eat and live is very important when changing lifestyle habits that can be so 'addictive' for most people. If you want information on the raw food diet along with inspiration and motivation to begin and succeed this book is a must!
