Nutrition is a dynamic science that is subject to frequent revision. We are constantly assailed by new fad diets and outlandish nutritional theories that attract their high profile, slender devotees. Most of us are terminally confused about what are the current recommendations for a healthy diet.
'Reality Food' debunks the misconceptions and explains the latest thinking on such complex matters as the GI index, saturated fats and supplements in a clear, rational and friendly way. It's about good eating on a daily basis, which is vital for staying lean and healthy throughout our life.
Topics include macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fats), micronutrients (vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants) and also weight loss and exercise. There are meal plans, shopping guidelines, ideas for appetising meals and snacks, and helpful suggestions for reducing dietary fat.
'Reality Food' is not prescriptive and does not suggest buying unusual or expensive ingredients or changing our eating habits beyond what is achievable. Eating well has never been so straightforward and delicious.
