A Recipe for Life by the Doctor's Dietitian is fantastic! The photography is stunning, the layout is crisp and clean and it is an accurate, realistic look at what people should be eating. --Christine M. Palumbo, MBA, R.D. Allure Magazine
From a Physician's perspective, this is the first book on nutrition that really makes sense. Susan explains why we eat the way we do and how our bodies work when it comes to food, exercise and metabolism. She provides a clear and unintimidating path back to good nutritional habits that will last a lifetime. And, she does it in a style that's engaging and enjoyable to read. This book isn't just for those interested in weight loss. It's for anyone interested in healthy eating. --David B. Baron, M.D. Chief of Staff, UCLA-Santa Monica Medical Center and Orthopedic Hospital
Whether my patients are struggling with high cholesterol, diabetes or their weight, I always know that Susan's sound advice will get them back on track. I'm delighted that she's finally distilled her deep knowledge and experience into a very readable book. It's a must-read for anyone who wants to start on the path to a healthier lifestyle. --Albert Fuch, M.D., Internist, Beverly Hills, California
Knowledge is power and I was feeling powerless before reading A Recipe for Life. I thought I was educated about diet but Susan's book clearly explained some of the misconceptions I had about nutrition. Since becoming a breakfast eater, increasing my protein intake and avoiding corn syrup and fructose, I have increased my energy during the day and I've lost body fat. The best part is that the changes that I've made are pretty simple. There are many "aha "moments in this book. You'll probably recognize some of the falsehoods that you believe in and with Susan's explanations you'll be excited about making changes in your eating. --Marty Liquori, US Olympian
