Unless you have a background that includes the ability to discern good from bad science, and/or a healthy skepticism of mainstream headlines & ads in the realm of nutrition, you are bound to be confused by the endless claims and hoopla about what you should or should not eat. And - even if you have a good background in nutrition, I think you will love this book - for yourself, your family, and your frineds.
Dr. Chaney gives the scoop in down-to-earth language that won’t confuse you. How refreshing - thank you!
He looks at the research into major diets, translates it into English, and presents the information so that folks can make INFORMED choices about healthful eating. He does not promote any particular diet as "the One" that is "right", but presents the results of valid research studies -- and explains his (and the scientific community's) criteria for validity. As he points out, studies of necessity report on averages and none of us is "average" because we are each unique.
He also compares based on the reasons one might follow a particular diet. Some are more challenging for weight loss, especially long term and sustainable healthy weight reduction, but be good maintenance choices. Some are better for coronary disease or diabetes prevention. He points out which are likely to be problematic for long- term health due to their restrictive nature or for other reasons.
At $14.95 I think the price is pretty reasonable. There's also a Kindle version.
I’ve followed his weekly communcations for quite a few years now, and they are so helpful. I keep a file to check back into them as needed.
Had nothing that I dislike except that perhaps the book could have been longer!
