really liked it
Read from October 15 to 18, 2011

This is exactly what I want in a nutrition book. The author cites study after study and doesn't make any outlandish claims. There are recipes in the book, but he's not promoting a diet or program. He does provide a new food pyramid and go over why it's better than the USDA's food pyramid, with lots of scientific studies to back him up. Even though its copyright date is 2001, it's been updated since then with a lot of recent data. There were many things that I was surprised by in this book and now I find myself reconsidering everything that I eat. Which is kind of why I read it in the first place, so that's good!
