    A Life Unburdened

    From the brink of disaster at over 400 pounds, one man rediscovers the redemptive power of real food. Whoever coined the phrase, "Change is difficult" knew what they were talking about.

We tried everything to lose weight, but as many of you know, nothing worked in the long term. When you come to the end of your rope the way we did, there ...

In a decade of travel around the world, Price and his wife studied the health, dietary habits, and chemical composition of food of dozens of traditional peoples of various racial backgrounds.

  • Pottenger's Cats

    Pottenger's Cats

    Pottenger's Cats is a classic in the science of nutrition. Dr. Pottenger discovered quite by accident that cats degenerated unless they were fed raw food. In his 10-year study of 900 cats, he found the optimal diet for his cats was 2/3 raw meat and 1/3 raw milk plus a little cod liver oil. If either the meat or the milk was cooked, the cats degenerated. And if both were cooked, the degeneration was much worse, and the cats could no longer reproduce by the third generation. Some of the prob...

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma

    The Omnivore's Dilemma

    From The Washington Post Most of us are at a great distance from our food. I don't mean that we live "twelve miles from a lemon," as English wit Sydney Smith said about a home in Yorkshire. I mean that our food bears little resemblance to its natural substance. Hamburger never mooed; spaghetti grows on the pasta tree; baby carrots come from a pink and blue nursery. Still, we worry about our meals -- from calories to carbs, from heart-healthy to brain food. And we prefer our food to be "nat...
