"Eat Naked: Unprocessed, Unpolluted, and Undressed Eating for a Healthier, Sexier You" Reviews
There is a lot of practical information in this book. I liked that just as I would start thinking "Look lady, stop taking away all of my food!" she would temper her own advice with a good dose of realism. You're not going to avoid all soy lecithin in your diet. I double dog dare you.
I ended up poking around this book, seeking out the information most useful to me. It's not really a cover to cover read. Floyd is a decent writer, but undoubtedly better nutritionist.
Some of the best tidbits were on dairy, and I had a huge ah-hah on soy products (not a good one, unfortunately). I also liked her section on super foods like sprouted and fermented products (esp. as a new kefir consumer).
I would recommend this for folks who are already on the train of healthy, natural eating but want more info and a boost. I think it's severe advice for a first-timer unless taken selectively.
One great thing about this book is that even if your household has one person eating vegan and one eating the standard American diet (as my household does), there is something for everyone in this book.
Whatever your current dietary regimen, this book gives you ideas on how to clean it up a bit, and swap out "okay" choices for better choices. One of the good tips? If the food comes in a box touting it's health benefits, it's probably not very healthy. (She points the choice between, say, an apple or a granola bar. Something really healthy, like an apple or an orange, doesn't come with all that marketing. Whereas a granola bar is more processed, and is going to be sold to you in a box that tries to convince you how healthy it is.) She emphasizes trying to stay away from boxed, packaged foods, even the so-called "healthy" versions of them.
There is also a really funny and satisfying final word where she talks frankly about her love of boxed mac n cheese, and how to basically eat healthy 80% of the time while still allowing yourself to come off the rails from time to time.
A fast, easy read on the how's and why's of avoiding processed foods and incorporating more clean, whole foods in your diet. The author presents her facts and arguments in a no-nonsense, passionate way. Recipes look simple and delicious. Enjoyed this one (even though it was preaching to the choir, in my case). Eat real food!
Margaret Floyd, a leading nutritionist, takes you through the steps towards eating a more unprocessed and unrefined diet. It is a basic guide that breaks down the nutritional components of different food groups and provides insight into the impact they have on your body. It provides information on organic and sustainable foods in a simplified manner and offers options on how to incorporate them into your diet. She does include some recipes at the end.
If you are looking to make a healthy change in your diet but don’t know where to start or have found information confusing in the past, this is a great book to start with.
I am a Good Reads First Reads winner!
This book could not have come along at a better time! This summer my husband and I started our first garden, first compost bin and had started to move towards organic foods (and things that have not been genetically modified or cloned). So you could say we're novices.
I liked this book because it wasn't overly technical. I enjoy reading. But not usually nonfiction. Floyd set out a clear plan to explain "naked foods" and how to begin encorporating those foods into your diet.
Plus this plan was very realistic. Like most Americans, my family has been raised on mostly processed food. Making a big switch suddenly would bring a big problem to meal times. By gradually switching foods my diabotical plan for better family nutrition might just work!
I would recommend this book, especially to beginners who are not really looking to diet but rather just to eat right.
