5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational. 26 April 2011
By mel 222
This is an amazing book. Having borrowed a copy from the library, I had to buy my own copy. Michael van Straten writes about food and health in a way that is both easy to understand and totally inspirational. I have many of his books and this one has not failed to inspire and motivate.

I would recommend this book to anyone who does not feel as healthy and full of vitality as they would like, as this book will transform your life.

Michael van Straten's books have certainly transformed my life, he has such a vast wealth of knowledge and writes with such a passion its contagious! I find most books on nutrition dull and boring, but Michael van Straten is different, his books are fresh and exciting.

Everyone of any age who cares about their health should read this book!

Michael Van Straten is a clear case of 'Do as I say, not as I do'. He is obese, yet gives his regularly flawed and worthless nutritional advice to people who are obviously in better shape than he is. In a time of raging obesity, should we really allow such hypocrites time in our minds? It's a scientific fact that many fat people distort the body norm to delude themselves that nothing is wrong with them. Here you have someone who hasn't only convinced himself of this, but wishes to tell all manner of healthier and slimmer people how to eat. This guy is a ridiculous, obese joke who lacks any credibility. He regularly promotes himself with the title ' Health Journalist of the Year', I have found no proof he has received this award. Like so many things with Michael Van Straten, once you get past the fat you realise there is really no mental nutritional value to his vain and self-promoting nonsense.
