Our grocery stores and restaurant menus are filled with so much bad food these days it can be quite hard to eat healthily and stay fit. Further complicating the matter is a never-ending torrent of diet trends, leaving unsure as to which to follow.

This book has a lot of simple, workable advice on how to lose weight and get in shape by eating a balanced, but not overly strict, diet. I liked the list of healthy foods to include in my diet and the spot-on explanation of the proper use of carbs, proteins, and fats.

This book debunks some common diet and nutrition myths, such as why eating eggs won't raise your cholesterol, why a rib-eye won't raise your risk of heart disease, and why fish isn't always the healthiest choice on the menu.

This book has a good collection of recipes of tasty food that helps you lose weight without feeling like you're "dieting." I did, however, find some of them a bit hard to prepare as I'm not a whiz in the kitchen.

All in all, I'm glad I got this book.

P.S. I also highly recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series)if you're looking for a complete training and nutrition program for building muscle and losing fat as quickly as possible. This book really breaks it ALL down and debunks of a bunch of nonsense out there.

If you haven't picked this book up yet, do yourself a favor and get it. There are a lot of simple facts that will help you make the proper nutritional choices throughout your day. This book is not a cure-all, but it will definitely get you on the track to eating well and feeling great. This book debunks many of the 'I heard...'-type facts about food. The food list in the middle of the book is great. Definitely pick up this book!

Great book with a lot of helpful info. But as the other reviewer noted there is no specific nutrition plan, although there are some general nutrition recommendations, which are easy to follow. I started to follow some of them and joined the gym (I used Big book of exercises to create workout plan) and as far as I can tell it works. Not feeling deprived I lost 8-10 pounds in a month although I did not have much of extra weigh (Before that I had been doing some exercises at home and had eaten what I thought right but apparently I had been overlooking several things.)

The only drawback for me is that recipes section could contain more of less sophisticated recipes for the a guy like me who does not really have much of cooking experience.

Seriously I can't get enough of this book. I bought it on a whim as a reference for my new foray into healthful eating. I kept looking up food nutritional facts and liked the idea of them all being in one easy-to-find place. This book is so much more than that.

It starts off with a huge section of frequently asked questions. You can literally read through these, learning fact after fact after fact. It covers all ranges of topics from food choices, water consumption, healthful benefits in food, etc. This book also includes tons of information about food labels, starting a diet, etc. The bulk of this book is a list of the Healthiest Foods. Each one has a big colorful picture and their nutritional facts. Tons of food is listed, including fruits and vegetables, breads and grains, spices and herbs, and meats and cheeses. The back is full of recipes - a large amount of them look delicious and I can't wait to start trying them.

My chief worry was that it would be predominately geared toward men. This wasn't a problem. Only a handful of times did I even notice something geared toward men, usually in the questions section in the beginning. It was never an issue.

I am definitely more interested in the Men's Health/Women's Health books and will look into the others.

This is one of the best books I have ever read on nutrition. We have all heard about all these diets and the all you have to do is just take this maricle pill and you will be fine. The truth is that it takes work and dicipline to change your eating habits. If you will read, study and put into practice what this books tells you it will help you to change your life style. I lost about 30 pounds in about 6 months and feel great. That's not too bad for a person who is small and weighed about 150# to begin with. I also recomend the Vita-Mix whole food processor. I am 68 and feel like I am 30 again.
