Mike Geary and Catherine Ebeling have brought us a wonderful book about a very important and much ignored topic: food quality. This is not a diet book. This is not a vegetarian book. The reader is not told to count calories or keep specific foods out of his or her diet in order to look slim. The policy of The Flat Belly Kitchen is quite the opposite: everything good in moderation, with the word “good” underlined. Twice. Geary and Ebeling make a very convincing argument in pointing to artificial food as a main cause of flabby stomachs and bad health. While overeating is certainly an issue, many of us have discovered that even a seemingly balanced diet may lead to a less-than-desirable weight/body shape. The reason, according to the two authors, is fake or unneeded additives to food. This book features exercise routines, yummy recipes, food buying tips, and a surprisingly thorough review of human food consumption in history. A great read!
