I've ultimately given the book 4 stars because, as Remmy says, a considerable portion of the book is taken up with pictures and descriptions of the benefits of various foods; and that section may seem a little thin. At the same time, it's a useful reference section about many different foods and there are also many other good tips - so this is a minor criticism.
However, this is the authoritative book on nutrition that I have been searching out for some time now. Weber shows what your eating routine ought to be in order to stay lean and all of this is backed by distinguished sources and distinguised nutritionists, etc. There are no Gillian McKeiths here. It seems that much information out there concerning food and diet is extremely contradictory, and the average person struggles to judge what the true state of play is. To underscore this point, I Weber says that, once and for all, eggs are not bad for you. Then, a couple of days later, I read some nutritionist saying that eating so many eggs will increase your risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Nevertheless, I place a lot more store in this book's information and advice than many other sources of nutritional advice.
