Trick and Treat Trick and Treat is not a diet book It is a book about what we are told to eat and what is really good for our health It is a book about the modern healthy diet and all the business around health and foodTo sum up Barry Groves' ideas he states that we should eat much animal fat through meat eggs butter full fat milk etc and cut down the carbs to a minimum To prove his point he goes through a large variety of modern diseases diabetes cancer heart attacks alzeimer's and explains the relation between these and our modern diet with studies to support his claimsThe amount of research and documentation inside this book is just incredible but at the same time it is uite easy to read Although it is hard to figure out the truth between all these diethealthy food books this one is uite convincing as it appeals to both common sense and hard evidence It also shows how we are conditioned to believe what we are told without uestioning itI am not sure if I agree completely with everything Barry Groves states in here but it really gives a good starting point to really form a personal opinion about what we pass our lips I would recommend any person concerned with their health to read this book This is the go to book with documented evidence to find out where nutrition has gone wrong and how to fix it Highly recommend to anyone wanting any nutrition knowledge I'm finding it hard to go along with Mr Grove's assertion that we don't really need to eat fruit I have seen him state in other articles that it's a myth that fruit is full of vitamins and minerals I don't even eat much fruit my fruit bowl currently contains my ipod camera and a nest of computer leads so I don't know why this worries me so much but it just doesn't sit right with me There is a lot in this book to think about ranging from corruption in the medical drug industry to pointing out that bran was a worthless by product of the milling process until we were conned into eating it What a handy and profitable way to dispose of itBarry Groves is into a low carb high fat diet but he explains it so well and cites so much research it makes sense Even so my last forray into the low carb world left me so depressed I'm reluctant to go there again Maybe when I understand the book I can adjust my diet appropriately It is an eye opener on many things Definitely uite alternative on some view points but great for being so I did learn a lot from reading it and even decided to implement some of the learnings from the book into our every day lives The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it sometimes lacks pointing to actual sources for the information provided however it is obvious from the writing and printing style that the book is a homemade project made after decades of research by a very passionate man for the topic at hand An incredible book that opens your eyes to the conflicting relationships between medicine research the pharmaceutical companies health and profit The bottom line is that because of vested interests orthodoxy and dogma we are actually being advised to eat all the wrong foods and this is making us chronically sick For Groves the right food is a low carbohydrate diet with lots of saturated animal fatWhether or not you would subscribe to his recommended diet his discussions are enough to make you think twice about government recommendations and so called nutritionists or health experts He would also have you proceed with caution as far as doctors are concerned because of their ridiculous targets and their relationship to the pharmaceutical companies Treat your doctor like a lawyer; consult them make your own mind up about what they prescribe as treatmentHe manages to turn the health understandings that we currently have all topsy turvy and to be frank I believe there must be than a slither of truth in his conclusions For all our so called medical understanding and professionals in the field of health in the past thirty years all I have seen is people looking sicker We are increasingly unable to prevent or cure illness or disease all we can do is treat it and that involves expensive drugs There is no medical alternative So if diet is important and I think it is it's worth taking a look at Barry groves' views Amazing And so important How to eat in a way that's truly healthy please note everything here is oversimplified based on my memories of the book everyone should read this for themselves if they're concerned about their own health in any wayEat fats meat fish eggs full fat dairy grass fed full cream unpasteurised milk nuts butter etc Natural foods Veg is ok fruit less so It's been artificially screwed with to make it sweeter and palatable but the sugars in it aren't great It's not a natural food nowProcessed carbs destroy health Oh and drugs do too So many nuggets of info I found amazing in this book and all backed up with the results of medical studies People who have cancer treatment don't live longer than those who don't get treatment Carbs cause a shitload of our diseases BECAUSE WE WEREN'T DESIGNED TO EAT CEREALS Food manufacturers sell shit that IS NOT FOOD and poisons us and it's legal Drug companies sell us medicines for everything and by the admission of the head of one of the big pharmas drugs are completely ineffective in most people anyway And there are a bunch of studies here that show they actually can kill you faster than not taking them at all Fab Oh and the medical industry flat out LIES about things that are healthy eg cholesterol Turns out 'high' cholesterol helps old people live longer Lowering cholesterol has never been shown to benefit anyone's health or to prevent heart attacks or furring up arteries Lying fuckers So angry about thisBut out of all this the bit that makes the most intuitive sense to me is that we evolved for a long time eating what we could catch and find Which wasn't cereals or bread or ready meals It was animal fat and meat and eggs and fish And when I lost 50kgs that's mostly what I was eating because that's what I wanted to eat And the weight fell off and the doctor said he'd never seen bloodwork look so good So yeah it's also personal experience that tells me this guy is onto something Post scrips; what also pisses me off is that it's now so hard to find real food eg most meat is not grass fed it's grain fed Most eggs are from battery hens fed with grain It's all but impossible to buy natural full fat unpasteurised milk GRRRRRRRRR Do you practice healthy eating consuming your five portions of fruit and vegetables per day and shunning fats in favour of complex carbohydratesThen you could be doing exactly what is most harmful to your health and helping to support one of the world's biggest and most lucrative industries the healthcare industryTrick and Treat asks the key uestions has healthy eating coincided with a reduction in health problems and health spending who benefits from the effects of healthy eating what is the evidence to support the principles of healthy eating if healthy eating isn't healthy what isBringing together over a century of relevant findings including classic papers and the latest research Barry Groves examines each of these issues in depth and concludes that there is a simple evidence based alternative approach that will allow us all to take charge of our own health Very good Learned a lot fantastic and thought provokingjust makes me realize how unuestioning I have been for 42 years but no longer my eyes have been opened Contains a great deal of history and not much new actionable informationAuthor also is incredibly biased
