This review is from: Eating Well For Optimum Health: The Essential Guide to Food, Diet and Nutrition (Paperback)
About a year ago I took the advice offered in a customer review of the hardcover edition of this book and purchased the paperback edition as well as Sonia Uvezian's "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen". I have been using both volumes regularly ever since. Dr. Weil's advice is sound, realistic, humane, and practical. I especially appreciate his concerns about the unhealthiness of fast food and his recommendation of the Mediterranean diet. Uvezian's book is a treasure trove of recipes for dishes that are both truly healthful and utterly delicious, and it is fascinating to read. These two books are exceptionally informative and easy to follow. I recommend them highly.
