Eat Healthy, Live Well
on Nov. 08, 2012
Here is a great little book with a wealth of information on nutrition.There are biochemical concepts that best flow from the pen of a scientist and she also manages to render them accessible to the non-scientific reader.
At the same time, she is delightfully honest about her own temptations and weaknesses thus reassuring readers as they come to grips with lifestyle modification.
The sections on fats, carbohydrates and proteins give an excellent overview of biochemical and nutritional principles.
The sections on vitamins and minerals are comprehensive and will be most useful for continuing reference.
She manages to avoid being too critical of the food industry though, justifiably, cautions the reader about restaurant food.It is difficult to escape the conclusion that we should stay well clear of the processing and "added value" that the food industry offers.
She enables informed decisions to be made and, in an ideal world,the health benefits of this book could be exceptional.
