This lifestyle and eating plan is proven to help men get their cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure under control, lose weight and regain their health-all without medication and all from a leading practitioner of Integrative Medicine. Backed by scientific research, the book offers a medication-free lifestyle makeover, explains common blood tests and hormone readings, details exactly what to eat and when and provides 50 recipes to keep readers on the right path.
Having lost 60 pounds since Sept. 2015 and occasionally getting blood tests to make sure my new healthy lifestyle and what I take in is not producing any negative results, I was in a bit of a shock because while I eliminated wheat, rice, pasta and corn-based products, lowered my blood sugar, my HDL went up which is good, but unfortunately, also my LDL.
Considering I have been eating healthy, I had to step back and with my doctor try to evaluate why my levels are high and what I can do to tweak my current lifestyle and the foods and vitamins I incorporate.
One of the reasons why I wanted to read Joseph Feuerstein’s book “Dr. Joe’s Man Diet” was because of the four words I saw in the book, “Drop Bad Cholesterol 20%”.
But while reading the book, I think I go so much more out of it as it also went into insulin, BMI and also more information on testosterone therapy and also the risks associated with it.
While I read so much about poultry, fish, lean meats, eggs, etc., I’m glad that Dr. Feuerstein also went into this in detail, which will no doubt help people researching the topic.
But primarily, what won me over were the healthy recipes included.
I try to stick with a 1000-1200 calorie a day diet and eat small throughout the day, I just need more inspiration of what to eat as my meal plans are often prepared early in advance and while I try to vary with the baked fish and baked chicken or turkey, I want more variation. And so, “Dr. Joe’s Man Diet” not just functions as an informative book on eating healthy, there are awesome recipes with photos of the recipes included.
There is also more information on exercise, chemicals that raise your cholesterol and insulin levels, the importance of sleep and more.
While I really enjoyed “Dr. Joe’s Man Diet”, personally I like to avoid the word diet and call it a healthy lifestyle. I’ve been through diets and have yo-yo’d throughout all my life and so, I had to make a decision. Don’t think of it as a diet, think of it as a change of lifestyle for a healthier you and something that you want to make consistent in life.
I personally found the information and recipes in this book valuable and for its sheer content and recipes, I highly recommend “Dr. Joe’s Man Diet”.
