[QUOTE=tfarny;656015]If you actually read the book, you'd know it is pretty different - they recommend a decent amount of white rice and potatoes daily, as opposed to saying, "they're not that bad" to cite one major difference. For another they don't recommend high protein consumption, adn for a third they actively recommend some pretty extensive supplementation.[/QUOTE]
Daily rice n taters ? Sounds fun, but to stay ripped off of that.......sounds like a challenge.
Less protein??? How is a person to stay full on that
Supplements......Not for me....I will take my grass fed beef, veggies, sweet potatoes, coconut oil instead
Im not being an ass, but wow does that sound like a challenge diet. Has anyone followed Marks advice and then tried the perfect diet???
They recommend CENTRUM multivitamin supplement...WTH...LOL. That is one of the worst!!!! supplements you can possibly take.
All lab produced, chemical crap the body can't use and taxes your liver.
What a great thread (up until today of course). I miss the days of deep discussion of the merits of different nutritional approaches for obtaining optimal weight and healthy without attacks :(
nutrition "science" is frustrating. i was told to stay away from fish because of mercury. especially my son, who has some ADHD issues (and his bloodwork did imply a high level of mercury). and this guy asks to eat salmon for ADHD.
Well, yes, you need the omega 3's, and also, yes, much fish is contaminated. I don't think sockeye salmon has issues with mercury, IIRC, so that would take care of both the mercury & the omega 3 issue.
The principles aren't contradictory; the reality that we have poisoned the oceans (the best source of many essential nutrients) is the problem.
Hey I pre-purchased the "updated" perfect health diet book to be released in early December.
I'm wondering if anyone has the current version of the book in Kindle that they could send through to me while I wait til early december?
PM me if you have it
Would really appreciate it! Thanks!! = o)
Pretty keen to check out the new book too haven't read the 1st yet...
Okay. Spent the last 3 hours before bed last night and 5 hours this morning reading through this thread. I also spent 2 hours at the bookstore yesterday skimming through the book and writing down the key points. I've come to the conclusion: I'm going to try this. Here's why: [url]http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread77462.html[/url] I'm aiming for 2000 calories a day, but I'll be starting slowly. I've been eating sweet potatoes pretty consistently (as I wrote in the other thread), but white rice & white potatoes have been largely off the menu. I'm thinking a 1/4 cup of rice to start, maybe one small, baked red potato, and some squash "pancakes" (GAPS diet-style) on the first day, as well as more coconut products, fermented veggies, and bone broths (Nourishing Traditions-style). Has anyone had any success with this in GAINING weight? I really need to get myself above 100 lbs. Please let me know, and I'll keep you all updated on my other thread if you're interested...
If you want to gain weight, then I can think of no better way than to drink your calories. In a primal sense, this means LOTS of cream, and having fried food swimming in lard. (Eat it hot, since cold lard is the suck)

I've been considering protein shakes, but I'm having a hard time finding one that doesn't have a lot of crap in it, especially soy lecithin (I think I may be sensitive to soy now). The ones I was drinking a year ago when this all started, Orgain, have changed their formula and now taste nasty. I also think I may be sensitive to chocolate ='( Any recommendations for protein shakes (other than Mark's; I can't afford it, even the 15-serving option)? Thanks =)
