    I'm trying to learn more about diet and nutrition, so I put a bunch of books on my holds request list at the library. The Super Antioxidant Diet and Nutrition Guide was the first to roll in.

    Maybe I should have been tipped off by the byline: A Health Plan for the Body, Mind and Spirit.

    Spirit.

    But I just thought: Right on! I'm a spirited kind of gal.

    The first thing that arose to let me know that something might be a little "spirited" was when I was reading happily along, and came to this:

    Antioxidants are best when consumed in their most natural form--vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, and seeds. After all, God first created us to live on fresh, natural foods. In Genesis 1:29, He spoke these words: "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you..." How could we possibly improve upon His plan?

    Ummmm. Okay... apparently I just need to read the bible instead of this book to know what I should or shouldn't be eating. Unfortunately, I think that means that Ramen noodles are out, because everyone knows that God didn't invent those. Frick!

    I'm not religious, but I'm not anti-religion either, so I decided to plug on and see if I could learn anything about what God thinks I should do about my cellulite.

    This book features four diet plans (not weight-loss plans, but "diet" as in what you should be consuming): the meat and fish eaters plan, the fish eaters plan, the ultimate vegan plan, and the anti-inflammation plan. I fell into the meat and fish eaters group. The bad news about this plan (for me, anyway) is that apparently God does not want us to eat too many of his creatures (less than 150 calories per day). That's not very much, and I don't eat meat every day, but I'm pretty sure that when I do eat it, I eat more than 150 calories worth. Add to that the fact that milk and yogurt are included in this group, and the yogurt that I eat at breakfast pretty much knocks out any chance I have of getting a six-piece chicken nugget meal later in the day. Oh - and cheese? Begone!

    Other meat to be begone?: Clams, oysters, mussels, shrimp, crayfish, lobster, squid, octopus, eel, scallops, catfish, carp, farm-raised fish of any type, grain-fed beef, poultry or lamb, egg yolks and pork.

    God, why hast thou forsaken me and my dear friend, the lobster? Why does your dietary law found in the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy forbid the consumption of bottom-feeding fish??? Did you not create them to be so?

    Yeah... at this point, I continued reading simply to see if there was any knowledge I could take away, because I love shellfish too much not to eat them for dinner. This diet plan is obviously not for me, but I was still open to getting some general nutrition tips. The gist is that you should eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, and nuts, and very little animals or animal products.

    This is when it started getting good, because it turns out that the author is kind of freaky (and that interests me).

    Lots of stuff happened to this woman. When she was eighteen, she moved from the U.S. to Vienna because her twin brother was randomly murdered (not funny) and she married this guy there and became a real princess (funny). But she wasn't happy. Over the years, she developed a lot of physical problems, one of which was irritable bowel syndrome (also not funny). Here's how it got cured (funny to me in a weird way):

    Then I remembered that a couple of people had suggested I purchase Germaine Copeland's book Prayers That Avail Much, which contained scriptural prayers.

    I went to the bookstore and glanced through the books on the shelf. At eye level, the only book lying against the back of the shelf with the cover facing me was the very book I needed: Prayers That Avail Much. I grabbed it, paid for it, raced out to my car, and began reading the healing prayer aloud while sitting in the driver's seat.

    Later, in my office, a sense of light filled the room ...(a bit of reflection on her life is deleted here)... I suddenly realized how blessed I was and how beautiful life could be. At that moment, I made a decision to love, embrace, and be grateful for my life. Instantly, the pain ceased. In less than two months, I felt healthier than ever before. My body's defenses became stronger and are still thriving today. The IBS episodes are now almost non-existent.


    Huh.

    I guess it's been proven that having a belief in a higher power can help people to heal (or heal more quickly) but I found it to be somewhat irresponsible for the author to cite this example in a book about eating for health. It makes it seem like to be a healthy person, you have to give your will to a higher power. I don't buy into that. I can see believing in yourself and being strong, but to expect prayer to cure your ills? And to spread the message that it did? It may have appeared to be the case for this woman, but I don't think as a rule the masses can rely on prayer for their health.

    I was still up for checking out the recipes, though. Unfortunately, they suck. Well, they might not suck if you're the type of person who has an hour each to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. The author was a personal chef for a while, and the recipe section of this book is where it shows. If someone was paying me the big bucks to make these recipes, I'd do it, but in my day-to-day life I don't have time to make a breakfast salad, which involves chopping eight different fruits and vegetables plus oatmeal plus flax seed plus two kinds of nuts. Are you kidding me? The cancer defense juice sounds good, but it requires 6 cauliflower florets, half a head of broccoli, 2 cups of watercress, 8 kale leaves, 6 medium carrots, and 2 whole apples. That's a lot of vegetables for a recipe that only makes two servings of juice. Maybe I'll have that type of breakfast if God sees fit to provide me with a personal chef. I wonder if they have that prayer book at the bookstore?

    I scanned through the recipes, and although some sounded good to me, I was generally staggered by the amount of ingredients needed. Then the author continued her personal story, revealing that at one point her young daughter had been kidnapped by her former lover who was out for revenge (she had dumped him while he was on business in another country. And by "dumped him", I mean she packed up and moved out without a word. She was supposed to pick him up at the airport but she didn't, and when he got home she was just gone. Also, they were business partners). This was in the section on forgiveness. There was some good stuff about letting go of regrets and things that might be holding you back, but those were somewhat overshadowed by her astonishing knack of giving the reader too much personal information. I felt like I was reading a gossipy novel (she got her daughter back unharmed, by the way, but only days later after the FBI managed to track "John" down).

    In the end, I didn't take much away from this book, except for the idea that a God that I don't believe in would like me to eat fruit, vegetables and nuts (and a limited amount of animals), and a bit too much information about Robin Jeep's personal life. I learned a little about forgiveness, and I got a nice recipe for hummus. But this diet was way WAY too strict for me. If you have a lot of time and a lot of money for ingredients and a lot of discipline and want to hear what God wants you to eat, then this is the book for you.

    End novel.

    This one is another great reference book, plus it has recipes!!! I attended a lecture by these two authors and spoke to Robin. She is very sincere and a very nice person. The only thing I don't agree with is any use of soy as I have learned from my friend and Doctor of Naturopathy that unless it is fermented it disrupts hormones, among other things.
