5.0 out of 5 stars Health and longevity go hand in hand... 15 Nov 2010
If you care about your body then this sound and fool proof book is what you need. Straightforward common sense advice on how to eat and take care for your body and health is all here in this easy to carry book. If you love your friends and family buy it as a gift, it will turn out to be more than a book full of words for them.
Split in two, the first part gives advice on health and the second part provides mouthwatering recipes to promote health and longevity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eating for Better Health 27 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, but does have drawbacks when trying to use it as a recipe or cookery book. A small paperback format is hard to keep open for you to follow the recipe, and although one page does print the conversion from US to UK measurements, it is frustrating to have to keep turning back to convert to the UK measurements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eating for better health 13 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have ovarian cancer and have read Jane Plant's book 'Your Life in Your Hands'. I found it invaluable so was very keen to read 'Eating for Better Health'. It is full of useful and well researched dietary information for a wide range of health problems and about half the book has useful recipes. We have tried some of them and we found them to be really good. All the recipes look interesting. There is also a very useful chart showing which foods generate acidity or alkalinity in the body.

I bought a copy of the book for a friend who has arthritis and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the effects of diet on health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eating for Better Health 3 Dec 2010
If you want sensible advice on a diet that will help your health this book does the job. The authors both know what they are talking about. One has apparently managed to keep cancer at bay for many years whilst holding down senior jobs.
Friends who have tried the recipes express surprise that they are so tasty. Comments have come back to me like 'We expected them to be bland but they make eating interesting when you are not always feeling 100%'. And the partners who often prepare and eat the same food find it good too.
Inexpensive and easy reading.
