Your Perfect Diet, How to Customize Your Diet for Weight Loss and Great Health, by Ronald Bazar, is the book I wish I had written. I do a fair amount of reading and writing of this type of material, and Bazar has gone into minute detail about steps you must take if you wish to improve your health. Speaking from experience since he has undergone several emergency situations involving his prostate, his instructions are clear and easy to understand. In addition, the text is packed with links to explanatory videos, articles, and books.
Ronald Bazar gives fascinating rationale for the recommendations he provides. Rather than just saying “drink 8 glasses of water a day,” he explains the dangers of too much or too little water, and how to tell just how much your body needs. The science behind the suggestions helps lend credibility. I learned a few things I had not heard before, such as that eating raw fruits and vegetables, especially tropical ones, tells your body you are getting plenty of sunlight and not to make any Vitamin D. I had not realized that the availability of fruit from all over the world could play a role in the Vitamin D deficiency epidemic we are currently experiencing. This is one reason he recommends that we eat locally grown food in season.
Also covered in Your Perfect Diet are toxins in food, sleep quality, and a technique called muscle testing to see whether a food or supplement you want to ingest is good for you, and in what amounts. This muscle testing can be performed along or with a helping partner, or you can alternately use dowsing methods. I am forever looking for ways to be healthier and I think this book will provide me with some help.
