Books by Margaret Floyd
“Eat Naked is full of convincing arguments and practical tips for cutting the junk out of your diet and replacing it with real food—which is exactly what needs to happen.”
—Mark Bittman, columnist for the New York Times and author of How to Cook Everything and The Food Matters Cookbook
“Eating naked is not The Next Diet. It is The Last Diet. Purge your pantry and strip the junk from your shopping list, but beware: you will doubtless have to face the facts about your rotten little food habits. Mine was surimi.”
—Nina Planck, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why
“Margaret Floyd’s Eat Naked is a clear and passionate call to nourish ourselves in a more simple, natural, and beautiful way. With just the right mixture of science and sass, Eat Naked delivers wise nutritional information that’s easy to practice. In a world overloaded with conflicting dietary facts and systems, Margaret Floyd gracefully distills some of the best strategies for vibrant eating and living.”
—Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet and founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating
“Eat Naked is wildly intriguing. For all time, our ancestors ate food that was caught wild, grass-fed, fermented, unprocessed, whole, and natural. In the last hundred years, these necessary, nourishing human traditions have been lost, and we’re largely at the mercy of Big Agriculture and the food industry. Eat Naked is a food revolution book that sets you free and also sets you on fire—free to live a long, fertile, healthy life of personal responsibility without disease, and on fire, because real access to whole foods is the newest civil rights movement that affects us all. Eat naked and thrive!”
—Mark McAfee, founder of Organic Pastures Dairy
“In Eat Naked, Margaret Floyd has created an easy-to-follow guide to optimizing your health. Drawing on basic principles, Floyd teaches her readers how to cook and eat for health, healing, weight loss, and for the pure love of food. Everyone should eat naked.”
—Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of Integrative Nutrition
“Empowering, and simplified to a doable matrix, Eat Naked gets rid of the fluff and complexity surrounding locally sourced, home-prepared eating and puts it within reach of anyone. What a wonderful contribution to this movement.”
—Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm
“This is a user-friendly, well-written book with sound and sensible nutritional information. The recipes are good, and easy, too!”
—Annemarie Colbin, PhD, founder and CEO of the National Gourmet Institute in New York, NY, and author of Food and Healing and The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones
“As a certified personal trainer, I thought I was eating a very healthy diet. When I worked with Margaret, I realized that I was not getting the proper nutrition that my body needed. Sometimes I can’t believe that I can really eat butter and not feel guilty! I can’t believe that after years of dieting, my weight has stabilized and I never feel deprived.”
—Christi Schimpke, CPT, National Academy of Sports Medicine, client
“This amazing eating philosophy has yielded two unexpected and surprising results. First, I’m enjoying eating more than ever before while eating foods I love, like avocados and bacon. Second, as I have learned to relate to food differently and be mindful about what I eat and how I eat, my body image has seemingly magically improved. Eating naked is so much more than a nutritional program. It’s a new way to think about food and pleasure, life and self.”
—Michael Douglas, client
“Eating naked has transformed my life completely, allowing me to lose unwanted weight and feel healthier and more powerful every day of my life. The increased energy I have supports my career and relationship growth, empowering me to live my dreams. For me, eating naked has become a way of life, the naked life!”
—April Kuramoto, client, yoga instructor, and BLYS Yoga Studio founder and owner
