The Perfect Health Diet is a book written by husband and wife, Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet. This couple has a qualified scientific background, their Ph.D.s, and a passion for diets and health. They began their research on the impacts of different food groups on diseases, immunity, and health. Their research covered everything from how we contract certain diseases to the potential health benefits obtained through the consumption of certain foods or lack thereof.

This book is available for purchase online on several different websites. Amazon, being among the most popular of the sites, has the paperback version priced at $11.68 and the hardcover for $19.04. This reasonably priced guide was published in December of 2013. Ultimately, their goal in creating this Perfect Health Diet book was to give the reader tools to achieve optimal health, whether they suffer from disease or not.

As far as the descriptive diet that they recommend, it is very similar to the well-known paleo diet. One of the minor differences is that in the Perfect Health Diet you are allowed to consume minimal simple starches such as white rice and potatoes, whereas starches are banned in the paleo diet. For those of you that are not familiar with the Paleolithic or “paleo” Diet, it is a restrictive diet in which starches, grains, legumes, sugars, and unhealthy fats (ex. vegetable oil) are not permitted.

The Perfect Health Claims

As printed on the front cover of the book, the Perfect Health Diet claims to teach you how to “Regain Health and Lose Weight by Eating the Way You Were Meant to Eat”. This claim seems plausible, seeing as how we should all be well aware of the importance of nutrition and healthy eating habits for our well-being. However, after looking into the feedback from readers and the content of the book itself, their “way we are meant to eat” statement definitely does not apply to everyone. 

Does The Perfect Health Have Scientific Backing?

Considering both authors that collaborated to create this Perfect Health Diet are scientists as well, I would consider their research and findings to be sufficient forms of scientific backing. According to a customer review on Amazon, the information provided in the text was very credible.

The Perfect Health Diet is an extremely well referenced and supported diet book. I have read maybe fifty health and nutrition books, many in the “low carb”, “paleo”, “traditional eating” and “whole foods” categories. This book is the best that I have read.”- Eckthelion, an Amazon Customer

When research has been carried out for as long as 7 years, which the Jaminet’s claim to have spent on the research for this text, the evidence and conclusions made are usually considered to be true. Although, this is not necessarily always the case. According to a critical Amazon customer review, there were a few instances in the book in which the authors did not live up to their expectations in the least.

Some of the misinformation is this book is almost unbelievable, given that both authors are ostensibly educated and have been researching diet extensively for years. “ –Cynthia L., an Amazon Customer

Is The Perfect Health Effective?

Although there is a pretty sufficient amount of scientific backing as to the diseases and the role of food discussed in the book, whether or not this diet is the “perfect” diet is still very much in question.

What the recommended diet comes down to is one that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. While this may be healthy for some, it is definitely not healthy for absolutely all. Aside from the food groups fitting “perfect” for everyone (or not), the effectiveness is questionable when you consider how difficult it is for many to just jump right into a diet of this sort. Going in cold-turkey can sometimes be rallied and motivated, but it gets tough when the cravings begin to creep in and you attempt to live a lifestyle of only these food groups for long periods of time. That being said, as far as this program being effective for the reader to achieve what they really are aiming to is nowhere near guaranteed.

What are The Perfect Health Side Effects?

The negative side effects recorded had to do with people that tried re-introducing certain food groups after completely eliminating them from their diet. Even though this is not referred to as an elimination diet, it is important to keep your body balanced. The balance helps to ensure that the proper bacteria stays where it belongs and gives strength to your immune system. If you follow a restrictive diet for a few weeks and really cut back on food groups (especially carbohydrates), chances are the side effects are going to be rough.

Whether you develop intolerance and are irritated by the foods from the point of eliminating them on, or you begin to notice a fluctuation in weight and energy levels, you will suffer.

The Perfect Health Support

The Perfect Health Diet website offers different ways for readers to stay involved and active in their commitment to the new lifestyle. One way is to sign up for the “Perfect Health Newsletter.” This newsletter is e-mailed to its recipients along with a complimentary e-book that is granted upon signing up for the newsletter.

The Perfect Health Diet is present on several social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc. Besides contacting the Perfect Health representatives on social media, there are a few e-mails provided such as [email protected], as well as a few different places to post comments and concerns throughout the website.

The next option they provide on their website is the “Perfect Health Retreat”. This retreat really drives home the support that this couple hopes to achieve in empowering their readers. They feature several videos of past customers that have attended this retreat along with their stories and experiences on the website. This is a retreat in which participants have the opportunity to really take all that they have gathered from the book to the next level. Attendees have the opportunity to further their knowledge in a daily educational program, proper cooking instruction classes, personal health coaching, movement classes three times a day, evening relaxation classes, and free time to enjoy the nearby ocean. Not sure how I feel about this, it seems like an interesting option and I have yet to see it offered with any of the other diet programs out there.

Bottom Line

The Perfect Health Diet is a book created to help inform individuals of supposedly the proper diet to achieve weight loss and optimal health. Although this diet seemed well-researched and credible upon first glance (seeing as how it was written by scientists with a passion for health and diets), it was not held in such a high regard after all. This is not to say that it is not ideal for some, but it is most definitely not the “perfect” option for all. There may have been some very qualified scientific research conducted in the making of this book, but as for the diet plan, it was just not fitting. If the book was geared towards diseases, foods, and immunity primarily then I may have had a different opinion. As far as a weight loss program, we suggest that you not spend your time reading this book and instead continue to look into other options that may be more fitting.
