"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Great book. This book makes so much sense. It is an easy and entertaining read. I am not a very healthy eater. I love junk/processed foods, but I have been taking baby steps toward a better diet. This book helped me confirm and be able to follow through with certain food guidelines, because I was able to understand and logically think about what I am putting into my body. It is hard for me to let go of certain processed foods, but I am gaining greater desire to eat better and healthier. One at a time I hope to replace all the food-like substances I eat with actual food. I enjoy Pollan's writing style.

I recommend this book to everyone. Also go watch some documentaries about the way we eat, how food is processed, etc. Food Inc and King Corn are two I really liked.
