In the past year or so I have devoted much attention to exploring the concept of what does or does not constitute a "Perfect Diet." I have questioned again and again, taking individual differences into consideration, whether there really is a diet that is perfect for everybody.
During the past couple of years I have experimented with my own diet, exploring various macro-nutrient thresholds, always with an eye to how I feel.
As I explored carb thresholds I experimented with low carb diets - even very low carb diets.
Without going into great detail I became convinced that low-carb diets were not ideal for my energy needs or sense of well being.
Just recently I came across a book that seems to address many of the questions I have had about my experience with low-carb and paleo-style diets in general.
For those of you who might be on a similar path - I highly recommend "Perfect Health Diet" by Paul Jaminet, PH.D and his wife Shou-Ching Jaminet, PH.D.
