Read in December, 2008

I hate to point out the obvious but the book spends a great deal of time discussing the various types of "fats" and without an official nutrition background by the last few chapters I found myself dog paddling a bit in the explanations of the HDL LDL ratios monosaccharides, disaccharides saturated monosaturated...I slightly coasted in general towards the end as the list grew longer in the various terms and explanations being used to get the message across to the reader.

The book efinitely influenced my perception of real foods and their overall good and I found that she consistntly referenced what probably amounted to 30 or 40 differnt books, publications and studies that I otherwise would not have come across without having them pointed out.

A nutrition primer that's great as general introduction.
