This is a short article on probably the best book on health and diet I’ve ever read and I’ve read a lot of them. I read it some time ago and a new edition has just been released. It has “diet” in the name but that term is used in the sense of what you eat as opposed to how to lose weight. This is NOT a weight loss book although there is a chapter on that and it is part of the subtitle.
We worry about the most unlikely things most of which are totally out of our control and yet most of us don’t do the one thing that we have almost total control over – eat healthy. Even most of us who think we are eating healthy are not. Therefore I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It far surpasses most diet books and it carefully explains the most important issues regarding what you should eat and more importantly why. It is heavily footnoted and is supported by a mass of scientific literature which is explained in terms everyone can understand.
This book is not your typical paleo book although the diet looks fairly paleo. The authors explain some critically important facts about toxicity of carbs and proteins. Its chapters on the toxicity of grains, vegetable oils, and fructose are simply outstanding. The material on supplements and why you should take certain ones is very carefully documented with much care given to safe levels. Every single person should read this book.
Please note the average Amazon review is 4.7 out of 5 stars. Those are well deserved and I would give it 10 stars if I could. The paperback version I first read is not available although you may find it in the library. The new hardcover edition is $17.27 cents on Amazon. The kindle version is $12.59. It is 400 pages long. If you and your spouse went to lunch you couldn’t get out of the restaurant for $17.27. If you take your family to a movie it will probably cost you $30 – $60. This $17.27 will be the best and most inexpensive investment in your future that I can imagine. Read it.
