Your Personal Life

Every week yet another diet or health fad comes on the market. One says that we should become strict vegetarians while another says high protein is the trick. The only thing these programs seem to have in common is that they suggest that this simple program will work on everyone (and doesn't) and that the creator of the fad makes a lot of money off of us. The end result is more confusion about what kind of nutrition is actually healthy.

Your Personal Life immediately takes a different approach, a more scientific approach. At the onset of this book, the author states we aren't what we eat but what we retain from what we eat and drink. This actual amount that each of us retains is individual depending upon not only our genetics, our body type, the amount of exercise we do, etc but also depends upon our unique body chemistry. In other words, we may have deficiencies or excesses of particular minerals, vitamins, and contaminants that affect how our bodies work. Thus, our diet must reflect these important requirements.

Your Personal Life is definitely not a simplistic one size fits all cure for health. I have to admit that I sometimes found the material in this book quite heavy and somewhat overwhelming. However, as I gain more understanding of the concepts, I gained a good deal of information. I particularly liked that the author set out the various tests (complete with explanations about what the results actually mean) that can be done to scientifically figure out the right diet for each of us.
