The No Breakfast Plan and the Fasting-Cure   By: (1837?-1904)

Book cover

The book, The No Breakfast Plan and the Fasting-Cure by Edward Hooker Dewey, is a highly informative and groundbreaking exploration of the benefits of fasting and the detrimental effects of the traditional breakfast routine. Dr. Dewey vehemently challenges the commonly accepted notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and instead presents a persuasive argument for a no breakfast lifestyle.

Through extensive research and personal experience, Dewey introduces readers to the numerous health benefits of fasting and the negative consequences of consuming breakfast. He provides ample evidence, backed by scientific studies and historical anecdotes, to support his claims. Moreover, the author dissects the physiological processes behind fasting, explaining how it promotes natural healing and detoxification processes within the body.

One major strength of this book is its clarity. Dewey masterfully presents complex ideas in a manner that is easy to understand and follow. He doesn't overwhelm readers with medical jargon but instead tactfully breaks down the concepts, making them accessible to a broad audience. Additionally, the inclusion of personal testimonials throughout the book further enhances its persuasiveness. Hearing real-life stories of individuals who have successfully embraced the no breakfast lifestyle adds a relatable and inspiring element to the overall narrative.

Another notable aspect of Dewey's work is his comprehensive approach. While the focus is on the benefits of fasting and eradication of breakfast, he also delves into related topics such as the harmful effects of overeating and the importance of proper nutrition. By addressing these interconnected factors, Dewey offers readers a more holistic understanding of health and wellness.

However, a minor drawback of this book is its occasionally repetitive nature. Certain points are reiterated numerous times, which might be unnecessary for readers who have already grasped the concepts. Nevertheless, this repetition can also serve as a reinforcement of key ideas for those who need more convincing.

Overall, The No Breakfast Plan and the Fasting-Cure is an eye-opening and thought-provoking read. Dr. Edward Hooker Dewey challenges conventional wisdom and presents a compelling case for the potential benefits of fasting and the elimination of breakfast. Through his lucid explanations, well-researched evidence, and personal testimonials, Dewey unquestionably cements his position as an authority in the field. If you are open to unconventional health practices and striving for improved well-being, this book deserves a place on your shelf.
