5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Calorie Counting, October 2, 2012
This review is from: Hungry for Change: Ditch the Diets, Conquer the Cravings, and Eat Your Way to Lifelong Health (Hardcover)
These authors intend to set the record straight. It's not the calories that count. It's the quality of the food. The kind of food we eat matters. How we prepare that food matters. Conquering the obesity epidemic which is overtaking this country doesn't require starvation. It requires a new menu.

It was a family member's health challenge, in 2003, that led them to research nutrition and diet and begin organizing what they found into an easy-to-understand, no-nonsense format. They began with the film, "Food Matters". They have written this book as a companion resource for their newest documentary, "Hungry for Change". Their message is simple: replace unhealthy, unnatural foods with healthy natural ones.

The first part of the book gives detailed information for determining which foods are healthy and which aren't. It also contains tips for gradually changing unhealthy, often addictive eating patterns -- such as shopping the perimeters of the grocery store instead of the aisles, and focusing on gradually adding healthy foods to your diet instead of on depriving yourself of the unhealthy ones. The second part of the book contains lots of simple, creative recipes that make it both easy and interesting to begin eating healthy.

The words of wisdom from a stellar lineup of medical and nutritional experts sprinkled throughout the text, are the icing on the cake (in this case an Almond and Orange Cake made with coconut palm sugar). This book is a thorough and inspirational tool for making food our friend instead of our undoing.
