Insightful, but Ill-organized & repetitive
on October 22, 2014
Dr Fuhrman's book is most definitely insightful in many ways. And very useful, too. But when it comes to structure...
Dr. Furhrman establishes the right way of looking at nutritional value, classifies various foods basis such nutritional value & then proposes what kind of food in what kind of quantity & frequency is best consumed by us for optimal health.
I think I'd have given it 5 stars, had the book just done the above. But it does so much more, taking off in various tangents (good reads in isolation, but I did not think these contributed to the general direction of the book)
If you Google for Dr. Fuhrman's food pyramid, you're likely to find 70% of the value this book provides for free. Reading the book drained me without adding substantially more.
