    Lead a lifestyle of health and well-being through nutrition I have read the first edition prior to this one and it was such an informative book that I bought myself the second edition. Researching nutrition for years, I must say this has to be my favorite out of all other nutrition books I’ve encountered. Of course each book has its own purpose and flavor, but if you want a good entry book into health and overall well-being (for yourself and/or your family) driven by nutrition, this is the one you need.

    Almost Baked To be a reference, a book must have a decent index! So many publishers overlook this point. Having read through volumes of data, I remembered seeing interesting points but had a devil of a time locating them again. I had to literally leaf through the book a second time with sticky notes. Don’t count on using this book as a reference. Do count on it for comprehensive nutritional information. (Just parse the dogma.) It is the best book I’ve read to date on nutrition: readable, thorough and pragmatic.

    Finally, consumers can really “get” nutrition Bottom line, this is the best consumer nutrition book out, and it will be for some time to come. The information is sound and reliable. It’s user-friendly, and it’s complete. Any consumer can open it up to any page and get useful information. From a tidbit to a chapter, if it matters in nutrition, Roberta Duyff has included it, and presented it in such a clear manner.
