The Sunfood Diet Success System, by David Wolfe, Hardcover, 624 pages, Maul Brothers Publishing. This is the sixth edition of this book, first published in 2000. I skipped over it for all these years because I've read so many other books on the Raw Living Foods lifestyle that I didn't think I needed to read another. But at the urging of Raw Fooder Helen Terry, I ordered a copy. I'm glad I did.
While I've always enjoyed hearing David speak about Raw Living Foods, in this book he includes a lot of information that isn't in his lectures. I especially enjoyed the motivational philosophy that he covers in the first chapters, and how he relates Living Foods to not only health and disease, but also faith and the environment.
Some great quotes:
"Life transformation is an inner journey. To succeed in life you have to work harder. But not on your family, or on your friends, or on your job, or on whatever comes your way. You have to work harder on yourself first."
"When we strive to become better ourselves, everything around us becomes better too."
"The best way to make others healthy is to become incredibly healthy yourself!"
"Health is not something we can get; rather, it is something we attract by the person we become."
"You are where you are and what you are because of the beliefs you have about who you are. You are healthy or unhealthy, successful or unsuccessful, happy or sad because of the beliefs you have about yourself in those areas.
"If you keep believing what you are believing, you will keep achieving what you are achieving. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting."
I see why Helen found this a highly motivational book. Inspiration is an important part of transitioning to Raw; this book can help you with that.
A "good read."
