Having noticed that the "Fitness" forum in the group was the most inactive of all, I have decided to re-purpose it to another topic that does get a lot of discussion here, and that is specific diet diet books/authors. Some that have come up for frequent commentary are Primal Blueprint, Wheat Belly, Primal Body - Primal Mind, Eat to Live, and Perfect Health Diet.
In the interest of keeping things organized for easy review, I thought we might create a separate topic to discuss an particular book and/or advocate of these different viewpoints. I suggest that anyone who has read a particular book should start a new topic in this forum with the subject line being the title of the book. I know that there are already individual teams based on particular books, but this team was founded with the intention of being an umbrella for all diets that are grain free. I'd like to keep it sort of informal this way.
I'll begin with a topic for Perfect Health Diet since this one has been a hot topic due to the inclusion of one grain - rice - being exempted from exclusion.
Anyone who has read any diet book may start a new topic with the title of the book and we'll try to keep each thread focused on that specific book. Q and A - pro and con... whatever.
Although this is a grain free group, I don't think it's at all necessary to prohibit discussion of diets that are not grain free, such as Eat to Live by Dr. Fuhrman. I don't want this to become a debate team, but I do think it's appropriate to include opposing viewpoints. It seems to me that no one diet plan is "perfect" and that each of us should take what we need and leave the rest. In other words, let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.
