EATING WELL FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH: THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO FOOD, DIET, AND NUTR ITION

by M.D., Andrew Weil

Condition: Fine/Fine


Knopf, 2000. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. A crisp clean first edition (as stated)no markings throughout, not an ex-li b: Hopefully, years from now, Eating Well for Optimum Health will be looked upon as the book that saved the health of millions of Americans and transformed the way we eat--not as the book we overlooked at our own peril. It clarifies the mishmash of conflicting news, research, hype, and hearsay regarding diet, nutrition, and supplementation, and further establishes the judicious Dr. Weil, the director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, as a savior of public well-being. If you've ever wondered what "partially hydrogenated soybean oil" really is, been perplexed by contrary news reports about recommended dosages for supplements, or questioned the safety of using aluminum pots for cooking, Dr. Weil will make it all clear.

From one of our most trusted authorities on health and alternative health care, a comprehensive and reassuring book about food, diet, and nutrition.Building on the scientific and philosophical underpinnings of his enormous bestseller Spontaneous Healing, the body's capacity to heal itself, and presenting the kind of practical information that informed his 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, Dr. Weil now provides us with a program for improving our well-being by making informed choices about how and what we eat. He explains the safest and most effective ways to lose weight; how diet can affect energy and sleep; how foods can exacerbate or minimize specific physical problems; how much fat to include in our diet; what nutrients are in which foods, and much, much more. He makes clear that an optimal diet will both supply the basic needs of the body and fortify the body's defenses and mechanisms of healing. And he provides easy-to-prepare recipes in which the food is as sensually satisfying as it is beneficial.Eating Well for Optimum Health stands to change - for the better and the healthier - our most fundamental ideas about eating.From the Hardcover edition.
