I watched Dr. Barnard's TED speech and loved what he had to say about nutrition, so I thought I would check out his books. I really believe what he has to say about foods being addictive. Who knew that cheese was so addicting, though?! I couldn't give it 5 stars because I believe it is a little outdated: there were so many recipes that call for soy products. I think now we know that too much soy is bad for the endocrine system, especially for those of us with thyroid issues.

Shanna I think you might want to look more into the soy issue because to my knowledge it is not a bad thing. John McDougall has some good info about it. :-)

Jensen Mott It's interesting that he does include so many recipes with soy in it. My mom has been reading a lot lately about gluten, which is apparently quite prevalent in soy, and how a lot of people could be intolerant to it and not even know it. In that way, I think this book is probably a bit outdated, as well, especially because of the number of people trying out gluten-free diets without being allergic to gluten at all.
