Descrizione

“Covers the latest scientific research on balanced diets, food as medicine, weight control, and food for health . . . an excellent nutrition reference.” —Library Journal
 
This latest, completely revised edition of the bestselling The Food Bible contains the most up-to-date research and information from the world’s top authorities on every aspect of food and diet, making it an indispensable reference book.
 
It discusses all the important food issues—from the ‘vegan versus meat’ debate to modern food farming and processing; from the ‘high carb to high protein’ debate to which oil to choose for health protection. It guides you through the minefield of contradictory dietary advice with clear nutritional information. Beginning with an explanation of the basic elements that make up food—proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, minerals and the ‘new’ non-nutrients such as probiotics, the book explains how to combine them for balanced, healthy eating.
 
The Food Bible takes an in-depth look at all the common ailments and health problems and discusses which foods to avoid and which can help prevent or alleviate them. There is a wealth of useful information on what to eat at every stage of your life and how best to keep your weight under control. The book contains a collection of tempting, healthy and nutritious recipes for all occasions and a final chapter containing invaluable, detailed analysis of over 300 everyday foods.
 
“Anyone seeking modification of lifestyle or body dimensions will find much useful guidance in Wills’ analytical book.” —Booklist
 
“[A] sensible, balanced and unbiased approach. It doesn’t champion any of the diets that advocate restricting a particular food group.” —Searching for Spice
