By Robin Wolfson VINE VOICE on August 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In all fairness, Dole probably didn't invent the name "banana diet." As the story goes, a very nice Japanese lady noticed her husband was gaining a little weight, so she started putting a banana in his lunch box every day. Miraculously, he started losing weight without making any other dietary changes.

I had already been adding bananas to my diet to counteract one of my medications and was losing weight, slowly but surely, so the idea made some sense to me and I ordered the "Dole Nutrition Handbook." Having read most of the book, I can safely say that this is the one food/diet book everyone should read, regardless of what diet they're on, because of the extensive explanation of each of the various fruits and vegetables now known as super-foods. Knowing about all these critical foods, you can begin to build a diet focusing on these super foods.

This book is indispensable: it's vastly informative, well written, and extensive. Did you know black currants (marketed here by Sunsweet as "Zante Currants") are considered the pinnacle of healthy fruits? I was impressed. This book was written by very knowledgeable people. It could do for eating what the Joy of Cooking did for cooking. For your own sake, buy (and read) this book.

The Dole Nuturition Handbook is excellent. Not only is the story about how it was created interesting but the goals and guidelines of the book are excellent. I refer to this book every day for information and guidance.

This book is the most helpful and well-documented information I've ever seen!! Every doctor should read it to better help their patients. People who want to lose weight easily should read it. People who want to regain their health should read it.
