The first thing I noticed was a slight change in tone. The information's still there, and even though the original wasn't a problem in the "dry"ness area, this has been combed-through to make it over in an even more universally accessible image.
My initial fear was that I'd plunk down the money the day this came out and it would be more of the same with everything else added for filler (a concern a few folks had with Healthstyle, which I believe was the actual sequel that introduced the newer foods). I was pleased to find that's not the case.
If you're looking for more of the same, in a sense that's there, because most of the big mention of the Superfoods themselves in the first part of the book, except in greater detail about the processes at work in the body and what exactly these different nutrients are doing for you. It's a fascinating presentation of the body and its systems, when that's discussed, even after a high school biology and college anatomy/physiology class.
It's also highly motivating to find out because many of the "features" of these foods directly affect me (the role of lutein in the eye, for example, and its relevance to the thing most of us have to look at more now than we have previously).
But the biggest perk this time around is the formatting. This is the Superfood gallery, practically applied. Aside from daily meal planners, that do the work for you and shake up the types of foods you get in each day to achieve each benefit, the low-commitment exercises are truly things you can squeeze in with no excuses into any routine.Read more ›
A note too - soy ruins our thyroid - so even though I lost fast when first did the combo - soon I gained due to disrupting my metab/thyroid with soy milk. And I only used 1/2 cup (as he does). Keep that in mind.
There is the usual promotion of Omega - 3 Reservaotol , of controlling inflammation, and de- toxifying the body. There is the stress on the importance of exercise.
For myself I learned that I should eat a number of foods I have to this point resisted: almonds, avocado, blueberries, pumpkin ( I don't think I'll make this one) wild salmon. I too picked up a couple of useful exercises.
Basically I believe the book is sound. I wish however it had had a chapter on the worst foods, on foods which should be avoided at all costs. Sugar, white- bread , trans- fat stuff, fatty red meat, etc. If there are lists for the good stuff, why not lists for the bad?
The book is clearly and simply written. It does not excite or provide humor but I believe it is very good and can be very helpful.
Another plus-I did not get that much older reading it.
