This review is from: SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life (Hardcover)
I found Dr. Pratt's book informative, practical, and a good reminder that I should include certain foods in my daily diet. Since I started practicing a healthier eating style 6 months ago, several pesky chronic health problems have been greatly reduced or disapppeared altogether. One fringe benefit was the loss of 30 pounds in that time. I put the diet together myself because I find most health "experts" to be extremists - recommending diets that aren't edible or too difficult to bother with. I found Dr. Pratt's book about 4 months into my diet, and while his book is not some sort of health "bible," he takes an even-handed approach and recommends things that are healthy, easy, and doable. And many of the recipes he provides are quite tasty.
Some of the other reviews I read here remind me how much I appreciate a reasonable health author like Dr. Pratt. The nitt-picking pretentiousness of most health "experts" is more than a little off-putting to me. If I had to listen to them rather than Dr. Pratt, I'd be drowning my sorrows in a McDonald's supersized fries right now!
