I went into this book thinking it was a recipe book. Then almost stopped reading it after a few paragraphs because it seemed like a weight loss book. Which is something I have no interest in or need for and wouldn’t begin to know how to review.
I kept going, though, and found out it is actually a pretty interesting break down of the health benefits and health concerns regarding popular foods.
This book will help you figure out how to make the healthier choices when at the bar, the movies, a family barbecue etc. The healthiest options aren’t always what you would expect (for example full fat yogurt is better for you than the low fat variety). So, it is both useful and truly interesting.
The writing is easy to read, never condescending or shaming in any way. It feels like the author is really just trying to help you make good decisions while still enjoying yourself.
I would recommend this book to anyone trying to eat healthier. It could be useful for someone trying to lose weight as well but I feel like it would be the most useful to someone just trying to make healthier food decisions. Of course, making healthier food decisions can also help you lose weight. So, I guess what I mean is that this book isn’t for you if you are wanting a miracle diet that will make you lose 30lbs in a week. It’s for you if you want an overall healthier lifestyle and healthier eating habits in general.
