This book changed my life! I always knew there was something missing in my diet. I never felt healthy or energetic. I was a size 26 and over 260 lbs. I couldn't lose weight, on the road to diabetes, thyroid and candida problems. I tried every quick weight loss scheme, from Pritikin, to Metabolic Typing to Adkins. Nothing worked. I'd lose 5-10 lbs and gain 20-40. It's not about just low-carb. Carbs are not our problem. Low Nutrient foods are our problem. Today, six months later, I'm a size 20.
Jordan teaches that we need nutrient dense foods such as kombucha, cod liver oil, coconut, naturally fermented foods, organic meats and vegetables, preferably raw goat butter, goat milk and yogurt, organic lamb and organic chicken stocks, celtic sea salt and living water. I eat beets, palm hearts, artichoke hearts, salmon, kefir, organic raw eggs in smoothies, raw honey, olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, homemade sauerkraut, sourdough breads. I limit bleached flours, soy...
In all reality this book is not about a diet, but rather about a serious life change for the better. This book puts together what my family and I have been trying to do for the past 2-3 years now. It provides a sound model for eating and living based on biblical principles. After reading some of the other reviews, I think some
people are throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Just because Rubin has a supplement company that provides alot of the healthy products he describes in the book, doesn't mean his advice is skewed or necessarily biased. It looks like some are questioning Rubin's credentials and education to discredit his advice. However, I have founds many other resources and websites that also come to the same conclusion as Rubin when it comes to our diets and lifestyle. Rubin goes to extensive details to provide the reader plenty of solid medical facts to explain what the human body needs and why other eating patterns fall short.
I had read "What the Bible says about Healthy Living", which is an awesome book, but it did not give a food plan to follow. The Maker's Diet is not an easy plan and is not a quick fix, but you will see significant results if you stick with it.
My husband and I haven't even finished Phase 1 yet and can already see major differences in our appearance and our health. He has lost 1.5 - 2 inches around his stomach. I haven't measured, but my clothes are fitting looser. The big thing for me is the way my skin has changed. I had severe adult acne for the last 10 years and no matter what I tried, nothing ever cleared up my face. I have been on The Maker's Diet for 12 days and my face is practically clear! And I know it's because my body no longer has the toxins in it that was causing the break-outs. The other huge item for us is the fact that our energy levels have already significantly increased.
