"Discover Your Nutritional Style is a great tool for anyone who wants to get and stay healthy. It's a fresh take on finding what foods work for you. I will be handing this book to my patients!" (Alejandro Junger, MD Author of Clean, Clean Gut, and Clean Eats 2014-08-07)
"Discover Your Nutritional Style is an accessible, fun guide to a healthy diet, a clearer mind, and a stronger body. Holli Thompson's seasonal approach to food for all Nutritional Styles will help you get on the path to good and enjoyable nutrition--and stay there." (Mark Hyman, MD Author of The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet 2014-08-15)
"The premise of Holli Thompson's engaging and original book is that the path to healthy eating begins not with someone's theory of nutrition or dietary practice, however well informed or well intended it may be. It begins instead with the individual--with you, to be precise--and your eating preferences, habits, and personal goals, against the backdrop of foods (and moods) on offer in each season of the year. Refreshing, beguiling, inventive, and practical, Discover Your Nutritional Style aims not to make you healthy by making you thin or vegan or paleo or raw or anything else. It aims to make you healthy by making you happy." (Kenneth Cook, President Environmental Working Group, Washington, DC 2014-08-08)

Top Customer Reviews
The contents of the book are as follows: Introduction/author's personal story; What's your nutritional style?; It's food not religion; Dangerous Liaisons; Cleansing in style; Healing in style; Enter Spring; Ease into Summer; Autumn arrives; Winter warmth; Recipes for your nutritional style; Resources, index.
Most of the nutritional commentary, which is sprinkled throughout, deals with cleansing. There is a diet plan - involving 1 week to ease into better eating, 2 weeks of following the recipes, then another week after easing out. The emphasis is on losing 10 pounds rather than something for those who have a lot of weight to lose. This is evidenced, e.g., by tips throughout that focus on things like bloating from eating fruits and testimonials that typically are about women who can't lose a few pounds. The title is derived from a quick quiz to determine if the reader prefers vegan, modified vegan, or non vegan meals. I didn't really feel people needed a quiz to figure that out.
There is good nutritional information in here but it isn't a science type book. Clearly, author Thompson is appealing to the vanity and self perception aspects of women to create a reason to eat healthier. That's not necessarily a bad approach and certainly appearance is a compelling reason to eat healthier.Read more ›
