Editorial Reviews


This is a balanced and comprehensive book on nutrition... presented in an accessible and engaging way. Joshua Rosenthal discusses all the fad and extreme diets that are so popular, looks at the politics of food, and is not afraid to look at more esoteric subjects, such as the energy of different foods and eating as a spiritual practice. I recommend Integrative Nutrition as a must-read for everyone interested in this most basic component of good health. --Andrew Weil, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Optimum Health and Healthy Aging

Integrative Nutrition brilliantly blends the art and science of nutrition with the personal growth aspects of love, relationship, fitness, career, and spiritual practice to help people find their path toward health and happiness. --Deepak Chopra, author of Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment

Integrative Nutrition is a comprehensive, practical approach to nutrition that simply makes sense. --Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm interested in eating more healthfully, and purchased this book from Amazon based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback. I normally do not review books here, but I was genuinely disappointed by this purchase and wanted to offer a few points of criticism for future buyers to consider.

I wouldn't have minded if the (considerable) preaching in this book was mostly regarding nutrition, but unfortunately, that was not the case. Paired with questionable editing (power statements were frequently repeated twice on the same page, and very peculiar usage/omission of punctuation), statements like "Wake up America" (not even "Wake up, America") were extremely grating to me. Rosenthal says that everything is nutrition, a claim that many experts make about their fields (be it biology, physics, probability, etc..), but never before have I seen someone take that claim so literally. If nutrition is everything and Rosenthal is an expert on nutrition, it must follow that he is an expert on everything, I suppose. Is it worth suggesting that sometimes marital problems (not poor nutrition) are the real reason you are in poor health? Sure, but I would not have purchased this book if I'd known that an entire chapter (1 of 11 total) was dedicated to assessing the health of one's relationships. Another of these few chapters is entirely dedicated to being your own person and not trying to fit in with the masses. Assuming the average reader of this book is not fourteen, the premise of a lot of this book was insulting to me. All I wanted from this book was a primer on how to feed myself better, but to get that information, I felt that I had to wade through a whole lot of rather high-handed motivational speaking.

Format: Hardcover
My name is Jennifer, and I'm a sugar addict! And I never would've realized it if it weren't for this book. The chapter on cravings really opened my eyes to the ways I was eating and how it affects me and my life. After finishing it, I went to my fridge and pantry--and everything I found in there, even healthy stuff I purchased at Whole Foods and the local organic market, were loaded with sugar! I couldn't believe it! Yogurt with 32 grams of sugar! Cereal with 25 grams of sugar! It's no wonder I was so high-strung and never able to concentrate or even sit still for a short period of time. I always thought I just had a minor case of Attention Deficit Disorder, but it turns out, no, I was just on a continuous sugar high! So I decided to take control of my sugar intake. Now, I read the packages of everything I buy, and do my best not to purchase anything with more than 10 grams of sugar, 5 or less is my goal though.

This book will make you take a good look at yourself and the way you're eating. It has awesome exercises at the end of each chapter that will help you see your eating habits and how they affect you. One of the first few chapters had an exercise where you keep track of what you eat for a couple weeks and make note of how hungry you were after you were finished eating and how hungry you were 2 hours later and it turns out, chicken is one of the only things that keeps me full for long periods of time. I was amazed!

Joshua Rosenthal's book Integrative Nutrition is the greatest present you could give yourself. It's the best present you can give anyone (I already gave a copy to my mom for her birthday!). If we all just stepped into our lives and the lives of those we care about and helped each other move in the healthy direction, then this country may have some hope after all.

Format: Hardcover
This book does what no other book on the market is capable of doing. It empowers and inspires the reader without judgment or preaching that there is only one "diet". He addresses theories and nutrition without limitations or making the reader feel as though there is only one way to eat. He also successfully relates to the reader what so many other self proclaimed guru's fail to acknowledge, which is that it is about so much more than the food! Mr. Rosenthal also weaves a fair amount of inspirational stories of some of the amazing people who have trained under him.
Integrative Nutrition is a must read!

Format: Hardcover
Joshua Rosenthal has written a comprehensive yet easy to understand book that tells the reader exactly why diets don't work!

Joshua goes beyond the hype of fad diet books to introduce readers to what really matters in life - finding healthful and nutritious foods that work for your body. This isn't a quick fix! You have to commit to learning and understanding your body, and to not be swept away by hype and false promises of quick and easy weight loss.

Joshua moves beyond the limits of restrictive diets, counting calories, and shame and deprivation that limit the success of most fad diets on the market today. Joshua teaches the reader how to love and nurture their body and soul, and mind, so that health is the only logical outcome.

Bravo! This book is a MUST read!

Institute Integrative Nutrition rocks. They're now giving away this book as a free download to kindle, ipad or just as a pdf to your computer. Visit bit[.]ly/FreeNutritionEbook to download it off their website.

My friend went through IIN's health coaching training program and said it changed her life and that this book was a big part of it. I was impressed when she sent me this link to download it for free and have been really enjoying it. It's cool that instead of just telling you what to do, they basically train you to listen to your body, mind and heart to learn what it really wants to eat and what other types of "primary food" like social, spiritual and physical activities that will make you really "full". I also really like their focus on the way you eat being as important as what you eat. I definitely have found that eating with more awareness has made me feel like I digest it better, know more when I'm actually full, and enjoy it better too.
