I recently read Michael Pollan’s book, “Food Rules: an Eater’s Manual.” This short book keeps nutrition simple by offering 64 principals for eating wisely like, “Don’t eat breakfast cereals that change the color of your milk,” “Avoid food products that contain more than five ingredients,” and “Avoid food products containing ingredients no ordinary human would keep in the pantry.” The principals are outlined in three parts:
Part I: What should I eat? (eat food)
Part II: What kind of food should I eat? (mostly plants)
Part III: How should I eat? (not too much)
The simple rules and short explanations outlined in “Food Rules: an Eater’s Manual” make it easy to read, retain and implement!
“A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf.”
