Recommends it for: people motivated to lose weight due to one or more risk factors for heart disease

There’s nothing ground-breaking in the dietary approaches in this book, but then I don’t expect that from the American Heart Association. Expect, in No-Fad Diet, a good run-down of currently accepted practices. What this book is missing in personality, it gains in clarity of presentation.

Lots of good-sounding recipes, but a reiteration of most common sense rules for losing weight.
A very good guide to starting a healthy lifestyle. However, I found that many of the diet plans relied on dairy products rather than whole foods. Further, many of the recipes relied on prepared products and food substitutes rather than cooking from scratch. So if you want your daily dose of gmo's this book can lead the way.

This has something for everyone in it... different types of diets to follow, and a large collection of recipes that look great! I can't wait to try some of them. I definitely wouldn't feel deprived eating these foods.

I would like to own this book. A super helpful health book. I did have to read the large print version because our library didn't have the regular!
Very straight-forward approach to nutrition. No fads or gimmicks. And simple menus & recipes.
