- Moderation in all things, including moderation.
Dr. Taub lays out a clear and easy path to achieving a permanent lifestyle change in 28 days.
Now that I've read the book's 400+ pages (many of them taken up with recipes), I'm having difficulty recalling a single fresh insight, useful bit of information, or well-turned phrase about overly familiar, commensensical lore. Nor is there enough information to justify the book's taking up space on my shelf as a reference book.
Dr. Taub's mantra is "Everything in moderation, including moderation." The phrase certainly fits the easy-reading approach of the book, which touts the usual virtues in general, conversational, flaccid prose--eat healthy, supplement with vitamins, exercise regularly, meditate away stress and keep a positive attitude.
In retrospect, two of Dr. Taub's points stand out. First, he's strongly pro-breast feeding and adamantly opposed to anyone of any age drinking cow's milk ("Consumers Reports" has since investigated this issue and exonerated the dairy industry); second, he acknowledges the role of "entropy" in the life cyle of every human being. Comparing human development to the seasons, the stages of human beings to the natural cyles of the physical world, Dr. Taub is able, at least in the early pages, to disabuse readers of any illusions about the extent to which it is possible to turn back the clock. In this respect, perhaps the book distinguishes itself from many competing titles in the cluttered, frequently exploitive, universe of consumer health information.
