This book is a comprehensive and cohesive user's guide to eating. While it's target audience is the athlete interested in nutrition, in reality it should be read by everyone who as much as eats and walks. An expanded target audience would serve both the author
“ a guide through the morass presented by the trend seeking media is necessary.”
and the public well. This book is clearly written with illustrations and tables that help make the concepts presented memorable.

With the current epidemic of obesity and the conflicting and confusing mass information a guide through the morass presented by the trend seeking media is necessary. This text will put you straight on the path to proper eating. The rationale is explained for all of the nutritional choices presented. The bubbles are burst on many of the food fads we've all read about. An added bonus are the many recipes for tasty foods that are found in the second half of the book. I would retitle this useful book “Eating: A User's Guide”.

If you haven't read this book yet, you should. It will help you understand what choices you should be making when you next sit down to eat.
