Patrick Holford’s The 10 Secrets of 100% Healthy People

Patrick Holford’s The 10 Secrets of 100% Healthy People

The less seafood a country consumes the greater its murder rate… You can predict the incidence of depression in a country purely by its oily fish consumption… The healthiest people eat eight or more servings of fruit and vegetables a day.

These are just some of the facts that UK health visionary Patrick Holford reveals in his 34th book.

This is not a facts to impress book, nor is it a book about losing weight. It’s not aimed at sports people either. It’s all about improving your health, feeling better and living longer. You’ll learn about processes like methylation and lipidation in addition to understanding how they intertwine with another four biochemical reactions. You’ll learn about consuming 20 foods that will add years to your life, including cinnamon.

A fascinating, research-backed book that you will find hard to digest in the first reading. As Holford says: “You are not what you eat. You are what you are able to digest.”

Eating fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, oily fish and supplementing is a recurring theme throughout this book, but he also goes into depth about mental fitness, vital energy (chi) and finding your purpose in life (which is Secret 10, if you were wondering).

A book to keep and re-read for years to come. The fact that it’s more than a bunch of theories and provides tried and tested real-life examples, practical eating tips and an online health assessment make this the best nutrition book this reviewer has read.

Some critics question the author’s emphasis on supplementation. This is something you have to decide for yourself after reading the book. Highly recommended.
