9780879756925: Your Guide to Good Nutrition

This practical and easy to understand book is about eating well.

Americans are deluged with nutritional information and advice, much of it either dangerously unsound or too technical to be eaily followed. Yet, achieving optimal nutrition is possible by following some very simple rules of good eating, distilled here in Your Guide to Good Nutrition.

The authors include chapters on nutrition basics and a balanced diet; how to evaluate nutrition information; vitamin and mineral supplements; "health foods" and related products; junk foods and fast foods; additives; practical weight control; balanced vegetarian diets; the truth about sugar; "fluid facts"; tips for teenagers; diet, heart disease and cancer.

Appendices include a listing of recommended dietary allowances, a glossary of terms, and a useful bibliography.

From Library Journal:

Rather than offering a guide to good nutrition, the authors concentrate on debunking claims for some health foods and defending the chemical industry. In the opening chapters, they do an admirable job of presenting a long list of foods that are purported to have miracle properties, and explaining their use, if any, in a healthy diet. Also listed are numerous popular fad diets and their dangers. Some valuable information is offered in a chapter entitled "Tips for Teenagers" on nutrition disorders and diets for athletes. The remainder of the book, in chapters such as " 'Junk Foods' and 'Fast Foods,' " "The Truth About Additives," and "The Truth About Sugar," is devoted to dismissing concerns about pesticides on food, food additives, and heavy consumption of salt and sugar. Rejecting any alternative approach to mainstream medicine, the authors advise readers to place confidence in the chemical and food industries and to rely on their good citizenship and responsible attitude. Recommended only for comprehensive collections.
