  1. Jaminets: Congrats on the healthy baby!

    Less importantly: what are your thoughts on inversion tables? (like such…)

    I have heard that being upside down is good for you, and the back stretching would (seemingly) be good for you..

    Best,

  2. i finally finished reading the book and I’m excited about starting the PHD!! this is probably a dumb question but I was wanting to purchase the supplements via your Amazon link but I don’t see it?! am i overlooking it 😕

  3. I just finished reading the Perfect Health Diet and had a couple of allowable food questions:

    What have you found regarding these foods? Do you deem them safe or toxic?

    *Coconut/Cassava tortillas or flours (like Siete brand)
    *Almond Flour
    *Sugar Alcohols like Xylitol and Erythritol
    *Sweeteners like Stevia

    Thanks!

    NOTE: My education is in Biology/Chemistry. I’ve been reviewing the research for the last 20+ years.
    My favorite resources (other than PubMed/Medscape scouring the studies) are:
    “Nurtition and Physical Degeneration” by Westin Price, DDS.
    “Why We Get Fat” by Gary Taubes
    “Deep Nutrition” and “Food Rules” by Catherine Shanahan M.D.
    “The Rosedale Diet” by Ron Rosedale M.D.
    “Keto Clarity” and “The Ketogenic Cookbook” by Jimmy Moore
    “Excitotoxins the Taste that Kills” and “Health & Nutrition Secrets that can Save Your Life” by
    Russell Blaylok M.D.
    “Know Your Fats” by Mary Enig PhD
    “Nourishing Traditions” by Sally Fallon
    “Always Hungry” by David Ludwig M.D,PhD
    “Effortless Healing”, “Total Health”, and “Sweet Deception” Joseph Mercola D.O.

    So why add another book to my resources?

    Well after reading the recent release “Always Hungry”, I was a bit shocked to see the addition of traditional “forbidden/toxic” carbs back into the later diet phases (and disagree with that diet plan) but it opened my mind to reading the Perfect Health Diet.

    I was most pleased with the idea that I could add in a sweet potato (something I seriously miss on KETO).

    And more importantly, I have been looking for a way to transition my children off of grains (which they love) and sugar as well. They love pasta, white rice and miso with seaweed/tofu/chives, homemade bone broth w/Ramen, Pho and sushi. Knowing I can still let them have all but the ramen (perhaps with a rice noodle substitute) and a few potatoes and fruit will make it much easier for me to get them off wheat!

    Also we eat wild Salmon, Halibut, Sardines and Tuna from Vital Choice but still supplement with Carlson Fish Oil, I was shocked to read that we should avoid PUFA/Omega 3 supplements. But we will be phasing them out now.

    The PHD appears to be an easy to implement plan for the whole family! Up until now, I have been making a lot of separate dishes for myself. I will be starting to adjust my Keto diet to PHD by adding in safe starches a few days a week (on my heavy training days). I cannot wait to see and share my results with you all. Terrific book!

    • Hi Robin,

      – Stevia, Xylitol, and Erythritol, are all PHD-approved sweeteners (see http://perfecthealthdiet.com/food/#Sweeteners).

      – Coconut flour is fine. A small amount of almond flour would also be okay, but be careful about getting too much omega-6 fats. It would be preferable to make baked goods from a mix of rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch (see http://perfecthealthdiet.com/food/#Noodles; scroll down to “Flours and Starches”).

      – Remember that sweeteners and flours should be small parts of the diet. They are fine as an occasional treat, but most of the diet should be whole foods.

      Best,
      -Eric

    • … And, yes, Cassava flour should be nontoxic. The only worrisome toxins in Cassava are the cyanogenic glucosides; these are removed by processing Cassava into tapioca (and I presume therefore also in the processing of Cassava into “Cassava flour”).

  4. Hi-I am new to PHD but looking forward to mastering this seemingly healthy way of eating. What do you recommend for a salad dressing? And do you recommend raw salads?Thank you!
    nancy

    • Hi Nancy,

      Olive oil and vinegar makes a great salad dressing. Any low omega-6 oil (e.g. high oleic sunflower, avocado oil) can substitute, and any type of vinegar + fermented umami source will do. Vegetables are fine raw or cooked, your choice. No need to eat raw vegetables but you do need vegetables one way or another.

      Best, Paul
