"Staying Healthy with Nutrition, rev: The Complete Guide to Diet and Nutritional Medicine" Reviews
I want a read table content.
This book is HUGE and a GREAT source of information. It's not the type of book that you sit down and read from cover to cover (although you could if you wanted) but rather I've been using it as a reference. It's organized and easy to look things up, and the information she gives is very informative and non-judgemental.
It's really made me think about what I am putting in my body and in my children's bodies. In fact, I guess the only negative is that it made me want to go through my cupboards and throw a bunch of stuff away, stuff that is not as healthy for my children as I realized. I know I'll be referencing this book for a long time.
This is a very informative book about nutrition and health. It talks a lot about vitamins, foods, diet, and other health related topics. The book is over 900 pages long. I think it is suitable as a reference book. I read the sections I was interested in and skipped a lot.
There are four main sections: The Building Blocks; Foods, Diets, Nutritional Habits, and the Environment; Building a Healthy Diet; and Nutritional Application: 32 Special Diets and Supplement Programs.
Outdated information on saturated fat and it colors all the dietary recommendations. Base information is good though.
