NUTRITION FOR LIFE
The no-fad, no-nonsense approach to eating well and reaching your healthy weight
by Lisa Hark, PhD, RD and Darwin Deen, MD
Healthy eating throughout your life is recognized as the foundation for optimal health. However, understanding what to eat and separating food and nutrition facts from fads can be confusing. With an overwhelming amount of nutritional information written every year, much of it contradictory, the question remains – what would a skilled nutritionist or medical doctor recommend?
NUTRITION FOR LIFE: The no-fad, no-nonsense approach to eating well and reaching your healthy weight is now available in paperback making it even more accessible to every family and classroom. NUTRITION FOR LIFE is the definitive guide to nutrition that combines the views of a top nutritionist and a family doctor into one concise volume. “The information in this book is a powerful prescription for health,” say authors, Lisa Hark, PhD, RD and Darwin Deen, MD. “In essence, your diet and lifestyle define your destiny and are your best hope for staying healthy through every stage of life.”
In NUTRITION FOR LIFE, readers will learn:
* How to assess your dietary and lifestyle habits through interactive questionnaires that identify key areas for change,
* Why the body needs food – the essential building blocks of life,
* The elements of a healthy diet and how to incorporate all of the food groups,
* How to eat through all the stages of your life, whether you are feeding yourself, when you are pregnant, as your children grow, or your elderly parents,
* The truth about weight control and an honest and accurate assessment of 45 of the most popular diet books and programs,
* The role of food as medicine in the prevention and treatment of disease,
* How to become a smart shopper and prepare healthy foods,
