I also like how the author discusses the dangers of fasting, even going as far as writing about blood sugar levels and abrupt changes in the body. The part about how alcohol affects the body and how it’s different between men and women was briefly mentioned, but it is here that I really would have liked for the author to expand on the topic. I know that alcohol processes in the body of a woman differently than a man, but I was left wanting more specifics.
The breakdown of the concept of organic was a great addition. The fact that the author covered the use of aspartame in great detail makes this book work the read. I also noticed that smoking was examined, but I didn’t see any kind of warning to tell the reader that while to quit smoking is the healthiest option, to do so is to risk gaining several pounds. I’ve just quite smoking myself and I know this to be true because everything starts tasting better when you quite smoking. You also try to busy yourself instead of smoke and that can lead to snacking. Recommending to quit is excellent, I just think that little warning should have been in the book somewhere.
I loved the section explaining common labeling and how advertisers use words to get people to buy things, sometimes that aren’t so healthy for them too. The only major disappointment I had was I would have loved more recipes, and the ending seemed to leave like a big cliffhanger or something. I was again left wanting more instruction, guidance, or even inspiration.
All in all, a great read and will certainly serve as a great foundation for anyone looking to get healthier and make wiser food choices.
