The author tells an inspirational story of how he recovered from a serious chronic illness with faith in God and perseverance. He was led to make dietary changes based on God's principles for nutrition. He espouses that adapting the Makers Diet can improve your health and quality of life. Although I found making some dietary changes difficult, the changes I have made thus far have improved my health and encouraged me to strengthen my spiritual walk with God.

Shameless Plot to Sell Overpriced Supplements

You have got to be a little suspicious when a diet book that claims to be 'God's answer' to a better life comprises of 198 pgs of poorly referenced, barely hypothetical justification 32 pgs dedicated to describing an eating plan not disimilar to ALL others on the market (ie. dont eat junk food / eat more organic) and 50+ pgs providing sales information for receipe ingredients, overpriced supplements & homeopathic oils. The author of this book is the founder of the Garden of Life company, which in most instances is the only company listed to provide the 'healing products' the diet requires to be successful (which by the way is not recognized by the FDA). Ironically, for a book that claims to be an 'inspired work', its a little disconcerting that emphasis is put on ritual instead of faith and man-made supplements instead of God's bounty. This book is nothing more than a marketing strategy of a very intelligent business owner.

    Don't Waste Your Money

    This book is 'pie in the sky' pardon the pun. The only way someone could follow this diet is if they lived next to a health food store in a sunny climate. I would have to quit my job, move to the south and raise goats and sheep, have a garden, and raise bees and this diet still wouldn't work. I thought I would try day 1 and see what it is like. You can't do day 1 unless you buy all these different supplements from the author's company. This book is essentially an advertisement for all the products he sells. What a gimmick! I want my money back!

    One Big Scam

    Beautiful jacket cover. Catchy title. And that is where it ends. I tried to keep an open mind, but when he even dismissed integrative medicine I quit reading. This book is essentially an advertisement for all the products he sells. What a gimmick! I want my money back!

    What the heck?

    While I certainly have empathy for the authors illness, this book was not at all what I was expecting. If you are focused on cleaning out your colon - then this is the book for you. Very impractical and difficult to master for the average person. I read it in a weekend and felt as if I had wasted two days. Sorry, but I would not recommend this book to anyone who does not have Chrone's Disease.
