A terrible, terrible book.
on 19 April 2014
I'm about 20% through this book so far, and it really is horrendous.
The author repeats the same points again and again, sometimes she'll even repeat the same sentence with different words. We get it, you believe an alkaline diet is the way to go.
She claims that since tomatoes and oranges are very acidic, they make your body a more acidic place. This is complete nonsense, after these foods are broken down they make the body more alkaline. I really don't know what she's doing writing a book about this when she obviously hasn't the slightest grasp of any of it.
She just throws in that you shouldn't eat garlic every day because it's "quite dangerous", with no explanation or rationale whatsoever for saying that but it's supposedly an example of how "moderation" is a good thing. .
It's stupid and wrong. She obviously mustn't have heard that WHO advocates taking garlic once a day to prevent cancer.
There's lots of filler figures and stuff in an already small book. It's so terrible that I really can't believe anyone wrote such a book and is actually charging for it, I'm going to try to get my money back.
