David Reuben (author)
David R. Reuben (born November 29, 1933) is a California psychiatrist, sex expert, and author of several books, such as Any Woman Can! and How to Get More out of Sex. He is most famous for his book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask), published in 1969. That book inspired a film by Woody Allen, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) (1972).
He also authored three other books in 1975, 1976, and 1978 about diet and nutrition. These books might have been in response to the death of his father, from what he grew to believe was a preventable disease. These books suggest we should live by these three principles: Eat no refined sugar, eat no white flour, and do not take vitamin pills or other supplements. His book The Save Your Life Diet, promoted a high-fiber diet. Reuben suggested that a healthy diet involved the intake of natural fiber and reduction of cholesterol.
He also authored The Save Your Life Diet High-Fiber Cookbook, and Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Nutrition. The last book was written in the same style as his famous book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.
