Mind your body, mind your health
This book helps you to find a way through the maze of countless faddish and ultra-specific diets and weight loss programmes. It uses scientific findings to explain how different nutrients affect our bodies - which ones help us build and which ones cause unpleasant symptoms and illness, or lead to obesity. With the knowledge gained from reading it, you can decide which path to take towards a healthier, slimmer self. The author encourages you to experiment and choose for yourself which foods you are willing to eat and which you are ready to give up, after learning about their effects on the body. It is a highly informative book, yet easy to read, interlaced with the author's own experiences and humour. To give readers the full picture, the book also sheds light on scientific fraud, which has caused millions to suffer by eating themselves sick with 'healthy' foods. The final chapter of the book provides an insight into a small but fascinating segment of the history of medicine, a subject that has never been more relevant than it is today. It helps us to understand how we have reached the crisis we are currently in, and what makes the difference between health and disease.
"By dint of meticulous research, experimentation and the courage to leave the beaten track of the various authorities, the author transforms her health status. Her personal story is woven into the narrative and enlivens what could otherwise have been a dry statement of the argument. It works. She makes a very personal and convincing case why we should at least give the approach which has served her so well serious consideration. It was the engaging tone stuck by the author that made me want to continue and eventually I got to a stage where I was looking forward to taking it up again."
