The book contains lots of suggestions for what to look for in different sections of the grocery store, and what to look out for. I'd like it if the Caltons had some sort of database on their site where folks could search for certain brands/foods, to see if they have good/bad things to say about them, and where we could ask about things we find in the store that may not be on their lists.
We've changed our eating habits a lot since reading this book, and while we can't afford to throw out the entire pantry, we are changing many of the selections we make in the stores, including the stores that we frequent. (Trader Joe's is a drive, so we go after church cause it's closer then, but we are more often in HyVee for their HealthMarket section... even so, read the labels!)
While they advise eating as close to the source as possible (and being city folks, we don't have room for a cow and some chickens in our townhouse), the main idea I use is reading the labels, and thankfully the meal replacement shakes that we get from Isagenix fit their guidelines... non-GMO, no artificial ingredients, un-denatured protein from grass fed cows in New Zealand, etc. Try to find other shakes that fit their guidelines, almost ALL of them have artificial stuff, or soy in them!
I bought this book to learn about what to eat when I wasn't drinking shakes, and after the Bible I'd rate it as my second most influential book that I've read that has improved my life! Far better to pay a bit more now for organic/healthy choices for food, than pay much more later in life with as many chronic and debilitating diseases/conditions as so many Americans have these days. They should use this book to teach high schoolers what to eat after school, and how to educate themselves... but the government has never been the best choice for that... parents, you learn and then step up and teach those kids to take care of their bodies!
This book should be mandatory in all schools. They have done a tremendous amount of painstaking detail and served it to their audience to enjoy and benefit from. This book is worth many times the asking price.
I am 64 years young and thought I knew a good amount on the subject. The Caltons have taught me more than I bargained for. I will be taking the book to the grocery markets and using its valuable references, tables and comparisons.
Buying second copy tonight for my grown daughter. Great gift for someone you love.
I know their Naked Calorie book has a bit of supplement sales in it and that was a turn off for me. After witnessing first hand how knowledgeable and well written this book is, I am also ordering their Naked Calorie book as its got to be loaded with useful information on this very important subject ... our health.
I also very much appreciate that they do not push any type of diet on the reader. This makes it easy to recommend to others and it's more likely that they will actually read and use it as well.
If you are buying this book, I would highly recommend practical paleo and for an additional recipe book, food lover's kitchen.
