Very Informative and Easy To Understand.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nutrition for Life (Paperback)
I used this book (Nutrition For Life) in conjunction with a short course I was doing with the Open University called, 'Understanding Human Nutrition'. This book explains in simple understandable terms the importance of a good diet and gives examples by way of nutritional requirements from birth to the elderly age groups.
The book also looks at commen diseases that are attributable to a poor diet and suggests how to reduce the risk of getting one of these diseases. There are even diet suggestions for women to reduce the physical symptoms of the menopause etc.
What I thought was a very good inclusion in the book was the fact that just about every type of food you can think of has been listed together with vitamin, carbs, fat, etc content. I found this very useful.
I have no hesitation in saying that if you are interested in a healthy diet, then this is the book for you.
