  1. Liza

    5 stars
    I was already one of the converted; I follow the Paleo diet and thrive on it, after years of battle with candidiasis and other ills. The difference it makes in quality of life and the amount of energy I have is incalculable. To an outsider, it looks like a fad.

    The basis contention of this book is that most of the medical ills of our age – from rashes and headaches to obesity, diabetes, and cancer – are caused by eating glutinous grains. For generations now we have believed cholesterol and fat to be dietary enemies; turns out to be quite the opposite.

    So Perlmutter not only confirms what I already believed, but backs it up with studies, new medical evidence, and lucid description of the causation and effect. He explains that one person in two hundred has Celiac disease, which is the most extreme reaction to gluten; but that one in thirty is gluten intolerant to some degree, with unrecognized illness and discomfort caused by eating wheat.

    At my book club, my friends were making fun of this book as medical nonsense. I was biting my tongue, because the truth Perlmutter tells is my truth, borne out by all my experience. It makes me feel like Penelope: I want to tell everyone how much better they’d feel (now and in future) if only they stopped eating grains, but who would listen? The Prairie farmers would not thank me.

    I believe that gluten, like sugar and caffeine, has addictive properties, and no one wants to abandon an addiction. What we eat, and what we do not eat, is a very personal matter that everyone takes seriously.

    Perlmutter ends his book with a useful section of suggested menus and recipes.

    Highly recommended.
