His rules are simple no brainers that most of us do anyways, but just need a gentle reminder. Some of his food rules include avoiding foods that a third grader can't pronounce, have more than five ingredients (not a recipe) or are made in a plant instead of coming from a plant. For example, margarine, soda, snacks...those aren't really considered food. Eat food. Real food. Eat plants, fruits, nuts and berries. Shop at the local farmers market because that food was grown and handled with love. Pay more and eat less. We want everything fast and made for us so it's easy. When we really need to spend the time preparing the food we put in our mouths.
Now having children....extremely picky children who turn up their noses to anything green (except popcicles) can alter your rules slightly, even though these rules apply to the entire family. He does have a special rule for special occasions and treats, which saved me from feeling guilty about my love affair with chocolate. You don't have to follow them to a T, simply guidelines for eating healthy and keeping fake food out of your body!
It's a quick read (took me a half hour) and really makes you think about what you put in your body. I highly recommended it for an eating wake up call.
