Our grocery stores and restaurant menus are filled with so much bad food these days it can be quite hard to eat healthily and stay fit. Further complicating the matter is a never-ending torrent of diet trends, leaving unsure as to which to follow.
This book has a lot of simple, workable advice on how to lose weight and get in shape by eating a balanced, but not overly strict, diet. I liked the list of healthy foods to include in my diet and the spot-on explanation of the proper use of carbs, proteins, and fats.
This book debunks some common diet and nutrition myths, such as why eating eggs won't raise your cholesterol, why a rib-eye won't raise your risk of heart disease, and why fish isn't always the healthiest choice on the menu.
This book has a good collection of recipes of tasty food that helps you lose weight without feeling like you're "dieting." I did, however, find some of them a bit hard to prepare as I'm not a whiz in the kitchen.
All in all, I'm glad I got this book.
P.S. I also highly recommend The Shredded Chef: 114 Recipes for Getting Ripped and Healthy (The Lean Muscle Series)
if you're looking for great-tasting meals that help you build muscle and lose fat. It also has some great diet tips that are easy to follow but really make a difference in how you look.
