The Life Force Diet: The Key to Health and Wellness

Did you know that there is a nutritional factor missing from almost everyone’s diet? No, it’s not protein, water, carbs, fats, vitamins or minerals. The missing factor is enzymes. Yet, virtually every function in your body relies on enzymes to function properly. No wonder so many people are exhausted and experiencing disease in record numbers. However, with plentiful amounts of enzymes along with important phytonutrients, the body can repair damage, slow the rate of aging, and even overcome illness.

Once I discovered the healing power of enzyme-rich foods, I was astounded at the health improvements I witnessed, in myself and my clients. People dropped excessive weight; overcame colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and many other illnesses; and experienced an increase in energy and vitality.

Over the next four weeks, I am going to coach you to transform your diet and your life force energy by introducing you to the disease-prevention powers of phytonutrients and the miraculous healing abilities of enzymes. I’ll guide you step-by-step through making dietary changes that support energy, vitality, and balanced weight. It doesn’t matter whether you already try to eat well or if you’re on the Standard American Diet.

Don’t worry about radical changes. I’ll gradually walk you through the key steps to transform even the poorest of diets into the life force diet. I’ll teach you easy ways to lessen your junk food dependency, enjoy healthier versions of your favorite foods, and curb cravings.

The Life Force Diet is not a diet as we’ve come to refer to “diets.” We need to reclaim the word “diet” from the clutches of weight-loss organizations that have wrongly led us to believe that “diet” is the equivalent of meager portions, rubbery food, and deprivation. The Life Force Diet is about a healthy way of eating for life. Also unlike other programs, it is designed to be full of delicious food!

While it is not necessary to have a copy of The Life Force Diet while following along over the next four weeks, the book is packed with useful tips, simple ways to ignite your life force, and over 40 recipes such as Peach Pineapple Ice Cream, Plumpaya Pudding, Grilled Salmon with Salsa Violetta, and dozens of other delicious–and sometimes decadent–life force foods!

I’m excited to share with you information that I know will change your life and your life force! The Life Force Diet is your ally in disease prevention, healing, and unlocking the immunity, energy, and vitality that you are destined to experience. I’m honored to take this next step toward greater life force with you!

Sophie, The Life Force Diet is available worldwide, primarily through amazon; however, more and more international publishers are expressing interest in publishing it. At this point, there is no publisher in India for it. Thanks for your question.

Michelle Schoffro Cook

Alice, there's nothing wrong with taking enzymes in pill form. Because you're suffering from pancreatitis, you might be thinking of the need for pancreatic enzymes to be enteric coated for them to pass through stomach acid intact. Pancreatic enzymes are quite sensitive to pH levels, which is not the case with most plant enzymes.

I have been told I have chronica pancreatitis, and must take enzymes with my meals. I seem to remember something bad about enzymes that you take as pills. could anyone remind me what that was?

And I would also like to see supporting research on how the enzymes on our food spares our own enzymes. Since enzymes are not "used up" or "broken down" in chemical reactions, this does not make sense to me.

Please understand I am actually interested in seeing the research, not just being argumentative. Contrary to appearances.

Michelle Schoffro Cook

Thanks for the interesting discussion. Just because enzymes are proteins does not mean they have little value in our diet. During the digestion process, food sits with its own enzymes (if any were present in the food we ate) for a half an hour in the upper chamber of the stomach before it passes on to other parts of the digestive process. A substantial quantity of our body's own digestive enzymes (and therefore energy) is spared by simply eating more enzyme-rich food that predigests in the upper chamber of our stomach. Not surprising when you consider that we eat at least three times a day for the many years of our life.

Many of the comments are interesting to me since they are clearly based on not having read the program I put forth in my book. Anyone who reads my book will surely see that it is based on sound nutritional advice, NOT focused on any single nutrient (actually, it suggests an extremely well-rounded approach to healthy eating), and can sustain health for life. While offering a vegan option, it is not a vegan program.

I encourage you to read my book, The Life Force Diet. The proof is in the pudding. It works!

What I think is dangerous in any "diet" is to focus too much on any one nutrient. As many modern food writers have pointed out, we've become obsessed with carbs, fats, proteins, etc. as individual entities, and somehow fail to grasp the critical point - that whole, fresh foods are best because they simply bring these nutrients together in a healthy way. Some of it we can't even understand. So I look forward to seeing what these tips are, but I warn anyone away from focusing too much on individual nutrients.

This "diet" is probably a cleverly disguised version of the preposterous notion that heat destroys the "live" enzymes in fruits and vegetables and therefore renders them useless and disease-causing. Digestive enzymes in a healthy human body break down constituent nutrients for absorption and use. "Live" enzymes in raw veg and fruit don't stay "live" for long. As our biochemist points out above, there is no limit to how far ignorant people can be taken in by this kind of pseudoscience.

Thanks to Dr. Hinojoza for some facts and an attempt to educate. They are badly needed. This raw food/"live enzyme" nonsense needs to go away. And yes, I am a vegan who agrees enthusiastically with all her endorsements of a plant-based way of eating.
