5.0 out of 5 stars 8 books for the price of one..., 18 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Diet Cure (Paperback)
This book has just been re-released and I'm about to buy the new copy - so it prompted me to get out my copy of this issue which is now over 10 years old - how time flies - and give it a quick review...

First of all - this is a very interesting and cleverly laid out book. It begins with a questionaire that looks to uncover which of the 8 imbalances you may have - and you may have more than one...

It is also "on the money"... When I explain to someone who is 10 stone plus overweight that they are suffering from malnutrition - amongst other things - the normal reaction is one of disbelief - and that's when the fun starts...

The questionaire is worth the price of this book 10 times over because it lays out in simple terms what you are actually experiencing right now...

And the cause is your actual diet...

The title "Diet Cure" is a bit of a strange one because we're all on a diet. Maybe the meaning is to overcome unhelpful restrictive misinformation type diets...

There are only 3 types of "diet" anyway - one restricts food types (think Atkins), one restricts amounts (think Weightwatchers) and the third is a combination of the above two...

Where the Information in this book differs - is that there are 8 ways our current diet may be harming us - and Julia spends the first part of the book addressing this.

The second part of the book is about redressing the balance - and she uses a combination of food and supplements to achieve this.

The third part of the book is "The Master Plan" and is about going shopping for the foods and supplements, menu planning, nice recipes and so forth.

It also has a very helpful resource list and also emphasises relaxation, counselling and specialist addiction support if needed.

Simple works - breakfast, lunch and dinner of simple non processed food will overcome years of misery and obsessions and compulsions. Buy a book such as this one - a page a day diary - and begin measuring what you actually do - keep fine tuning it and keep writing down objectively - your daily plan - and then you have "The Diet Cure"...

This book has enough information to fill up 8 separate books - one for each imbalance - and maybe the new edition will flow more - from section to section - or maybe not...

I feel it's still worth ordering a copy of this book - because it's interesting to compare and contrast the books and look for the common theme - as information is continually changing - especially around health and diet...

And yet for me, the common themes are always - plain water - walking - writing - menu planning (planned vs actual) - resistance exercise - and a friendly supportive someone...

And my other advice - if you choose to take it - is read this book for one hour whilst walking round your local park - and when you've read it - buy another book - look for the common themes to what you've just learnt - and keep walking...

And by the way - I am a specialist in weight loss, addiction, better relationships and a few other things - because I have shared the information in books such as this - because it's helpful, really helpful...

There's nothing "wrong" with us - it's just imbalances and misinformation - and that's why I know we can all "get better" especially with the weight loss issue...
