"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 being aware of how the food we eat effects our body, emotions, mind and spirit. This book advocates vegetarianism and conscious eating and presents a wholeness approach to diet that explores the physical, spiritual, and larger, planetary implications of our diet.

Format: Taschenbuch
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.

Ein tolles Buch, besser noch ausführlicher und durch viele Themen ergänzt und überarbeitet im Gegensatz zur ersten Ausgabe; auch der Inhalt ist übersichtlicher gestaltet und es gibt 100 mehr Rezepte. Schade nur, daß es keine deutsche Übersetzung für diese Ausgabe gibt, die deutsche Ausgabe, in 4 Bände aufgeteilt vom Hans Nietsch Verlag, ist leider eine Übersetzung der ersten Ausgabe von Conscious Eating aus dem Jahr 1992. Dieses Buch gibt so eine Fülle an Informationen und Anregungen, es ist ein "must have" für jeden der sich mit Gesundheit und Ernährung befasst. Gabriel Cousens ist einfach einzigartig auf seinem Gebiet.

Unlike other limited conceptions of health, he keeps the highest goal of life in mind--communion with the Divine.

HASH(0x9b6fd870) von 5 Sternen A Brilliant Combination of different Sciences of Health 27. Dezember 2001
Von Mark T. Brody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b6fd8c4) von 5 Sternen Useful information 1. Mai 2001
Von fredmango - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.

HASH(0x9b6fdcfc) von 5 Sternen Totally changed my perspective on food 18. September 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b9040cc) von 5 Sternen Eye opening for Standard American Diet consumers 28. Dezember 2005
Von Dr. Hannah S. Albert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b9041c8) von 5 Sternen a few small problems and one very BIG problem; otherwise... 25. Juli 2007
Von Bates Family - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
i'm studying to be a naturopathic doctor and this was a required text.

i was already vegan when i read this book and i was considering moving to a raw-food diet. this book did further convince me of that choice, and my family is transitioning now.

however, i did have a few problems with the book. they are certainly easy enough to gloss over in favor of the solid knowledge that it does in fact contain, but they were there nonetheless.

first of all, there was one GLARING error in his discussion of breastfeeding toward the end of the book. he says that the two circumstances under which a woman should not breastfeed are in the case of certain medically-necessary medications, and if the baby is jaundiced. sadly, cousens is extremely misinformed about jaundice and gives very bad, completely false information in this case. i was a student midwife for three years and i am a certified lactation educator now. if a baby has jaundice two things are most important to help it pass: to expose the baby to natural light and to NURSE NURSE NURSE. fluid will help the bilirubin pass faster and if a baby is given water or formula instead, it can cause health problems and interfere with breastfeeding. one potential problem resulting from jaundice is lethargy. if jaundice isn't caught early and breastfeeding isn't established well, then serious problems can occur because the baby is not awake enough to take in the necessary fluid to help the bilirubin pass. as a result, jaundice may persist and bilirubin levels may raise to dangerous levels. this is why it is of paramount importance that breastfeeding is established early and babies are breastfed exclusively, on-demand from birth. breastmilk is absolutely the best healer for jaundice; if breastfeeding is not established and the baby is deprived of the breast, jaundice is much more likely to occur and to persist to a critical level. while every breastfeeding expert and supportive organization in the world says that breastfeeding is the best thing you can do to prevent and correct jaundice, cousens claims that breastmilk contains "substances" that supposedly prevent bilirubin from passing. but he doesn't say what these substances are, and he gives no references, and i have not been able to find a single piece of scientific literature supporting his assertion. universally, the fact stated by experts is that except in the case of a few extremely rare metabolic diseases, breastfeeding can and should continue when a baby is jaundiced. please overlook cousens' inaccuracy and look to your midwife, lactation consultant, LLL leader, or BREASTFEEDING-FRIENDLY doctor for more accurate information if your baby is jaundiced.

with that long diatribe aside... :)

i found some of his spiritual commentary off-putting. as a casual pagan who is vegan in part due to spiritual reasons, i am certainly open to considerations of spirituality in diet, and i consider myself very tolerant of religious beliefs. but in this case i found most of his comments irrelevent and even somewhat nonsensical. again, this is easy enough to overlook, but it might be a serious bother to some people. the sections on jesus, the apostles, and the bible, while interesting, were especially confusing in context.

this book is dense with intense information. it is really a scholarly work and was quite difficult for me to get through in a timely manner with a toddler and a newborn. but i did come away with a ton of really excellent insight and understanding. some parts i discarded, but other parts i found surprisingly enlightening. i went in very skeptical about the ayurvedic diet system that he describes, but i was amazed at how specifically true, and positive, it ended up being when i adjusted my eating habits to fit his recommendations for my "dosha."

i didn't feel that the book was laid out very well. i felt that many chapters were stuck in at random. and i found a lot of his commentary saccharine and condescending - such as looking at food as "love messages from god." gag.

he also plugs his own health resort regularly, which is a great option for the rich who have money to burn on such luxuries.

i was also thoroughly disappointed that he didn't have any advice whatsoever for applying a live/raw-food diet to babies or children.

i did find the book basically informative and enlightening and i found most of his principles easy to apply, despite the aforementioned problems.
