Good nutrition is the cornerstone of optimal health--feeling good and looking good. In this title, Dr. Whitaker has put together a time-tested cuisine that will promote the wellness and energy you need to enjoy life. Unlike extreme regimes that call for restrictions of a certain food group (fat in some cases, carbohydrates in others), the recommended recipes in this book are pretty normal. There are no specific items you have to eat in abundance, nor is anything completely off-limits forever. An occasional indulgence is good for the soul! As the reader has access to his own personal favorites among a variety of fresh, tasty, nutritious foods, it is easy to make this cookbook a mainstay.
In fact, Dr. Whitaker does not like to call his nutrition program a diet. The word smacks of deprivation and misery. Let's think of it instead as a lifelong nutrition program of fresh, wholesome, mostly unprocessed foods that contribute to health and vitality, and leave you feeling satisfied at the end of each meal.
