"In this book, an expanded revision of his 1992 work, Cousens endeavors to make his readers aware of how their food choices affect their bodies, minds, emotions, and spiritual life. He emphasizes there is no one-diet-fits-all approach, but rather a consciousness on the part of the individual of what works. He includes information on the oxidative, autonomic, ayurvedic, anabolic-catabolic, endocrine, blood-type, and acid base diet systems. In personalizing a diet, the individual needs to answer these questions:

• Am I emotionally stable after eating?
• Do I have increased physical energy after eating?
• Am I craving any foods?

"Cousens details studies where poor diets were fed to indigenous groups such as the Kurds, Yemenites, and Zulus. The indigenous people studied had been introduced to highly refined carbohydrate foods and suffered from degenerative conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. He points to a diet of fast, frozen, and processed foods, adopted by Americans and peoples of most industrialized nations, as one that is inadequate. He characterizes this diet as one loaded with refined sugar, white flour, and pesticides.

"The author establishes guidelines for healthy eating by recommending that people consume natural, whole, and organic foods and that the diet be primarily fresh, live raw foods. He advocates a high-complex-carbohydrate, low-protein, and low-fat regimen with attention to receiving adequate sunlight. Deep breathing, bathing, and contact with nature in the form of gardening or hikes all have therapeutic effects.

"In this era where so many things are condensed or encapsulated, reading a book with 850 pages is a daunting task. In this case, it's worth the effort. In Conscious Eating Gabriel Cousens has compiled a handbook that emphasizes the benefits of a raw food diet. He has woven together many philosophies from around the world and incorporated them into a body-mind-spirit program that will be beneficial to the individual and to all mankind. The book is a valuable reference tool that belongs in every vegetarian's library."

"Conscious Eating is the most comprehensive book on vegetarianism, rejuvenation, and balance, reflecting a holism of living with the uniqueness of each individual. I feel it is the book to lead us into the paradisiacal of the twenty-first century." Conscious Eating has been referred to as the "Bible of Vegetarianism" for both beginners and advanced students of health. This classic work in the field of live-food nutrition is both an inspirational journey and a manual for life. In addition to the information that made the previous editions well-loved, Dr. Cousens introduces breakthrough research and important practical ways to successfully individualize your live-food diet for optimal health and vitality. He also discusses new topics such as healing the "addictive brain," freedom from depression, new information on the importance of enzymes for healing, youth and vitality, and vegetarian nutrition for pregnancy. This edition includes an innovative international fourteen-day menu of gourmet, Kosher, vegetarian, live-food cuisine, over 150 new live-food recipes, and a variety of other new features.

Gabriel is more than a nutritional expert he is a holistic Healer. If one were to read AND study this book seriously, one could revolutionize their life. Gabriel is in some ways the Grandfather of the Raw food movement and this is it's BIBLE. He provides a spiritual context that is all too often lacking in the Raw movement. There ara quite a few holier than thou, head in the clouds types roving around today. Gabe's spiritual perspective cuts through such nonsense. Unlike David wolfe (for all his energetic brilliance, gabriel brings years of experience as a hardcore spiritual practice (This guy is an amazing over achiever, he is an excellent psychiatrist and radical nutritional expert. Blah blah blah. This book is excellent, beyond excellent. With this book and david Wolfe's , you will have all the info you need for years to come.

Dr. Cousens has done pioneering work in creating this precious, easy to read, wisdom-filled book. As a medical doctor, he represents the new breed of physician that will help our society and world achieve high level wellness. Unlike other limited conceptions of health, he keeps the highest goal of life in mind--communion with the Divine. I love him for sharing this message with us.--Eliot Jay Rosen, LISW, author of Experiencing the Soul

A Brilliant Combination of different Sciences of Health 27. Dezember 2001
Von Mark T. Brody - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is one of the best health books I've ever read, no question about it. It combines pretty much every diet fad you've ever heard about into a raw, living food diet.
In this book, Cousens teaches us how to follow the Ayurvedic principles through a 80-90% raw food diet. He also teaches us how to individualize our diets for our metabolic body types. This is one of the only books I know that teaches how to individualize diet for a vegetarian.
The book covers religion, meditation, toxins in our environment, and has a nice living foods recipe section in the back of the book. The nice thing about it, is that with the recipes, he doesn't try to offer dishes that are similiar to those which are cooked. I see a lot of vegetarian recipe books doing that. "Try our delicious all vegan pizza!" and of course, it tastes no better than a branch off of the Maple tree in my back yard. These recipes offer new tastes.
I like a particular section in the book where Cousens tries to explain the logic behind why people think he looks much more unhealthy now than when he did when he was a bulky college football player. We live in such an obesce society, that someone of a healthy weight appears too slim, or unhealthy. Because Cousens doesn't have a pot belly, and sagging male breasts, many people say he looks "thin and puny". This book teaches us that through living foods, we can sculpt and shape our bodies pretty much any way we'd like. He chooses not to be muscular anymore, because he feels he has no need for 30 extra pounds of muscle. Steven Arlin on the other hand, is 230 lbs, and likes to feel big and strong.
All in all, this book takes you on a journey through the fascinating world of raw, living foods. It could change your way of thinking.

Useful information 1. Mai 2001

Gabriel Cousens is a trained physician who operates the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona. I remember reading the first edition of "Conscious Eating" years ago. It was one of the first vegetarian books I read, and one that influenced me deeply. Gabriel explores food and its relation to health taking in consideration its effects on different levels: physical, mental, and spiritual, as well as each person's individuality. Gabriel Cousens tries to "Individualize the Diet" instead of saying that there is one diet ideal for everyone. I was more enthusiastic about these ideas when I first revised this book, but now I am not so impressed by all these theories anymore. Dr. Cousens has adapted the Indian health system of Ayurveda to vegan, raw food nutrition. The chapter on vitamin B-12 will be of great interest to all vegans and raw-foodists. Doubts about a vegetarian diets are dispelled. The part on Vegetarianism in world religions, and also the vegetarianism of Jesus are also fascinating chapters included in this part of the book. Part three is titled: "Transition to Vegetarianism," but is also about transition to living foods and the reasons behind such a diet. Gabriel outlines the best way to make this transition as easy as possible. The transition is in four stages, from a meat and dairy based diet to a vegan, raw food diet. The final stage of 95% living foods, a difficult step for most people that can be made easier understanding the psychology behind it. "Stage Four diet is more intense and more likely to be successful for those who are mature and balanced in all areas of their lives. For most people, it requires several years of experience and self-experimentation to become balanced and grounded with the full life-force power of this diet." Other chapters of interest in this part include information on pesticides in our food, and a list of the most sprayed fruits and vegetables. The book also contain many raw-food recipes.

Totally changed my perspective on food 18. September 2002
Von "fengshuistephanie" - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book because I wanted to become a better vegetarian/vegan and gain a healthier attitude toward self-nourishing (without giving up coffee and chocolate!). I found the analysis sections extremely eye-opening, and learned that the high-carb vegan diet I was having such trouble sticking to is not at all suited to my body/metabolism. I've made some real shifts in my diet based on this book, especially including both more protein and more raw foods, and have a lot more focus and energy now.
I highly recommend this book, especially for people who want to move further toward or into vegetarianism. It will help a lot with that transition and guide you to finetuning what you eat to suit your metabolic needs. It will also change your perspective and understanding of food and how it affects mind, body, and spirit.
Unfortunately, some of the information is a little confusing: I couldn't always figure out how to apply or use what I'd learned. And while I personally agree about the spiritual dimensions of diet, others may find that focus (especially in the beginning of the book) a little too strong. I think Dr. Cousens would have done better to shift that focus to the second half, so he could gradually build up to it.

Eye opening for Standard American Diet consumers 28. Dezember 2005
Von Dr. Hannah S. Albert - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As a Naturopathic physician one of the first issues I discuss with people is diet. What we eat is our life's fuel. I don't give the same advice over and over, because we are unique individuals who require unique diets. There is no "One Way" that is best for everyone. However, much of what Dr. Cousens writes about in his book would benefit all of us. Not only does he delve into detailed explainations of why raw vegan foods are healthier choices, but he backs it up with the most recent research available. Then he goes to great lengths explaining how simply bringing one's consciousness to the table can shift how that food is "taken in" by the body. As one who has both professionally and personally experimented with many types of diets, I find his writing to be a lovely blend of passion and science. By incorporating just a little of what Dr. Cousens recommends into your life, you will enhance your spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being whether or not you ever become vegetarian.

good tackle 24. Oktober 2007
Von Sadee Whip - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I've had this book for a few years and regularly refer to it. After reading the reviews I decided to post.

First of all, I think this book would be difficult to swallow if you don't have raw food experience. Primarily because this book is about adjusting the dials. Most of us have little knowledge of how our own unique bodies function, or what's required to funciton optimally. Conversely, one may have a lot of knowledge about the body, but experience trumps info. Apply what you know to your own body and see how much it bears out in experience. It is then we realize that much of our knowledge is theoretical, no matter how sound, and doesn't necessarily bear out in reality.

This book, then, is a manual for the experience of one's own body and is based on decades of experience, study and practice with hundreds of people. The information is astoundingly refined. If you are just begining raw not only will the information be too complex, it won't be all that relevant - even though it's good. It's important to have refined information when you need refined information and to have more general information when you need that.

I say take what's useful and stay raw. Keep the book as a resource. Don't make up your mind in one or two reads. You'll come back again and again and gain new insight or new perspective. This book will grow with you.

On a personal note: I often hear or read comments about Dr. Cousens' arrogance or that he's condescending. I'm not a "fan" but I do respect his work. He has an educational background that is astounding, a spiritual background that is shockingly diverse, feeds people, houses people, heals people, educates people and is utterly commited to helping save our planet. Dr. Cousens couldn't be self-serving or self-absorbed - or he wouldn't be willing/able to do the huge amount of work he does, tirelessy, for others. (there are MUCH easier ways to stroke one's ego) I think it's important to view him in the context of his work and his life to gain an understanding of his language and tone. Plus, he's human. Just please don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. This really is a great book.
