GOOD!

This is a life changing book simply by changing your diet focus to what you should add to your diet rather than the negative approach of all the things you need to give up. The book helped me learn good substitutes for bad stuff that we all already know get with the 5x5x5 plan and see how you drop weight and feel GOOD!

love it

I love the way the book is organised: it presents the defense systems and how they work, explain the foods that support these defense systems and how do we implement this food with the framework (the practical component).

summarizes in detail

The way this book summarizes in detail of how the defense systems work using relatable metaphors is amazing (read this along with another book as the detailing may get monotonous). It also mentioned some cutting edge research that is happening around the world. Finally, as an Indian, it’s a little disappointing Indian specific foods (or ingredients) are missing. But, I guess he can’t address peoples across the entire world.

must read for everyone!

It focuses on foods and how they play a role in the health of the body. If you don't have a specific health issue it recommended going through the foods, and highlight the ones you like. This is your Preferred Food List, you are free to choose one food from each of the groups that will support the following systems, regeneration, microbiome, DNA protection, immunity, and angiogenesis. That makes a total of 5 foods that you will include in your choices for the day. It all about the 5x5x5 framework. You will have the liberty to choose only eating foods that you like. You can choose at least one from each group each day and you will be off to a start to protecting your body. It informative, i sure wish that I had read this years ago! In chapter 15, it will help you select foods based on their ability to fight a specific disease. This is a must read for everyone!

my road to recovery.

This book is Easy to follow and very informative basic idea is to incorporate foods that have shown to improve or protect our health. I cherish the idea of the 5x5x5 plan because of the flexibility it allows in choosing the food you select to eat. I think this plan seems like something that a person can be successfully with.

I found a few good pieces of information in this book about different foods that I didn't know before and will refer to some of it as I continue on my road to recovery.

Take action

it is always good to make positive food choices because it will help reinforce your health defenses, but you will sometimes be in a situation where the right choices are neither easy nor possible. That's why regularly making good decisions can help balance the effects of unhealthy choices that we all make occasionally and this brings us to the 5 × 5 × 5 framework.

This 5 x 5 x 5 frame is not a plan to lose weight, a physical diet or a plan of mental clarity. It's not a meal-by-meal, or a day-by-day plan that tells you how to live your life strictly. It's much better.

The 5 × 5 × 5 is a framework, not a prescription, it fits any diets you currently follow, be it Paleo, Whole30, Ornish, low-carb, gluten-free, allergen-free, plants-based or ketogenic, and it's easy to adopt if you do not follow a plan at all.

The 5 × 5 × 5 framework is flexible and requires little implementation effort, which facilitates compliance. And it's not restrictive. It's about adding beneficial foods to your diet, without excluding foods.

The 5 × 5 × 5 framework gives you the freedom to choose what you eat and when you eat it. The starting point is to select your favorite foods from a list of foods known to improve your defense systems.

The 5 × 5 × 5 frame is designed to avoid the problem of boredom by constantly eating the same things. It's easier to follow healthy habits when eating what you already love.

Are you ready to take action to make your body healthier and better able to fight disease than this book is for you?

Supportive ideas

Eat to beat disease made me to embrace the fact that to understand the health benefits of foods, we must first understand the definition of health. For most people, health is the absence of disease. But it's much more than that. In fact, the definition of health requires a major update. What is clear is that our health is an active state, protected by a series of extraordinary defense systems in the body that are activated in all cylinders, from birth to the last day of life, allowing our cells and organs to function without problems.
These health defense systems are wired into our bodies to protect us. Some are so powerful that they can even reverse diseases such as cancer. And even though they function as separate defense systems, they also support and interact. These defense systems are the common denominators of health. By re calibrating our approach to disease prevention and focusing on these common denominators, we can take a unified approach to intercept diseases before they occur. It can be as powerful as finding common denominators for treating diseases, as we did two decades ago. Each of the systems is influenced by the diet. When you know what to eat to support each health promotion action, you know how to use your diet to stay healthy and conquer the disease. This is a book you must listen to especially for those that is looking forward to living a healthy lifestyle.
