Ok, I saw this and thought it was like the eat this, not that books. I love those, they talk about food, good and bad, and there is no judging. In this book there were so many pages about how God wants people to eat and if you eat the "dead" foods, well, it was just wrong.

Yes, I know fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are great for you and processed foods are not. I didn't realize the good foods are the "living" foods and the bad foods are the "dead" foods. Living foods = good, dead foods = b

Fork over Knives, Eat to Live, they all speak to eating healthy to survive and that most of what ales us is about what we eat. Which is very true, our diets need to swing towards the vegan side as much as possible but not be completely there, if that makes sense. The nice thing about Dr Colbert's work is that he tries to make the information appealing to read by providing nice pictures and a bit of a sense of humor. I also like that he shows a practical side to his eating suggestions by saying t ...more

This book taught me the importance of feeding my body nutrient-rich foods for optimum health. Dr. Colbert explained what we should be eating as well as what we should be avoiding and why. I recommend it everyone! :)

This is the best, most helpful, straight forward nutrition book ever. I read it in one day. It gives practical advice that can be applied immediately. From what to eat, what to buy, and how to boost your health, this book has enough to kick start a new way of living and eating!

It was an informative read, perhaps a little too much so. I did like that the author came at this topic from a Christian perspective as this is not usually the case among eating and nutrition books. However there was a lot of science terminology that I don't think the average reader would easily understand. Also, this book could be very triggering for those recovering from eating disorders as it mentions calories and fat grams and other triggering numbers frequently. All in all it was a very inf ...more

Great information and diagrams in this book. I used it as an introductory book into nutrition. I was able to get a basic understanding of terms and the way food is processed in our bodies. It helped me to understand denser texts much better.

I found this on a book rack in CVS pharmacy, and it is a gem. I learned so much from this little book. Life changing.

The research and information about nutrition that went into this book is astounding. Colbert really condensed a lot of great information into a very compact book (it's shorter still when you consider that it's mostly images of healthy foods) but the weird religious elements seem so random and crammed into every chapter. If the author skipped the evangelical aspects of how god wants us to be healthy and how he gave us vitamins, it would have been a much stronger recommendation. ...more

There is quite a bit of good advice but it isn't easy to sort out the valid from the opinion. One surprise was it was at times, seriously heavyhanded with the religious justifications that often seemed out-of-place. That's always a major warning flag to me, even though it appears we both claim Christianity as our faith. ...more

This would be a great gift book for someone just starting on the journey away from the Standard American Diet and into healthier eating. It is very basic and not too radical, and very easy to read and understand. Very pretty book, too. Lots of eye-catching photos.

179 pages indexed. This was my 1st book on food and diet. The book is enjoyable. You are going to need own it however if you plan to use it. It might be worth the purchase price.

Everyone should have a copy of this book. It illustrates simple concepts about nutrition that make you think "duh, why didn't I think of that." No matter where you are on the health spectrum, you'll learn something in this book. ...more

I thought this was a great book - somewhat along the lines of the "Eat This/ Not That" series, but focusing more on healthy, whole foods and not on choosing the lesser of two evil junk food choices. Very informative, easy to read and lots of fun graphics along the way. ...more

This book has a lot of good advice but is very basic information. Anyone who has studied healthy eating will already know most of what is presented.

I appreciated the nutrition and lifestyle information but could have done without all the god and Jesus talk.
