You Are What You Eat, Dude! by Max Sturman

You Are What You Eat Dude! by Max SturmanI never did get me meet Mr. Max Sturman who was obviously a promoter of good health and nutrition – although I have been in contact with his son Andy who actually lives less than a couple of blocks away from me here in sunny San Diego.

Max wrote many books on the subject of healthy eating and I happened to stumble across You Are What You Eat, Dude! in the local Carmel Valley branch of the San Diego library.

Lot’s of great information in this book – it was published by the author’s Do It Naturally Foundation (now defunct) in 2009 when he was 90 years old.  It’s too bad that the work of the foundation won’t be carried on.

Some of Max Sturman’s other books include:  No Sugar No Flour Will Give Me The Power, Never Get a Cold (illustrated by Jose Gonzales Jr) and OBESITY: The Solution.

Current Reads: Joe Abs Book List

Sometime in the near future, I will rebuild the bibliography page that this site used to have.  I will add to it and update it.

I am currently reading a few different books and a couple of them are appropriate for people interested in health and nutrition.  Let me tell you about them:

Best Green Drinks Ever

Best Green Drinks Ever, Boost Your Juice with Antioxidants, Protein and More is by Katrine Van Wyk, a former model from Norway who I somehow met on social media (I actually forgot how, but want to check out her book on green smoothies).

Katrine has also written another book called Best Green Eats Ever.

You can buy them both on

Over 50 Looking 30! 

Over 50 Looking 30! The Secrets of Staying Young is a book by Nina Anderson and Howard Peiper, MD.  It is illustrated by Richard Vail.

Some of what I already do for health, nutrition and fitness is covered in this book, but it does include some information on enzymes, minerals and essential fatty acids that I am not yet up to speed on.
