This book is fascinating and one I think every woman (and man) should read. It is not a typical diet book that says you must eat this on day one, cut out these foods, reduce your caloric intake and all that other advice we have heard; it is more about our eating habits, how those have changed in our culture over the last 40 years and how that has affected our waistlines.
I don’t want to over simplify the message in the book, because I think the authors do a great job in providing solid research to back up their findings and should be read in its entirety, but the biggest takeaway for me was that I should increase the amount of omega-3 fats in my diet, stay away from processed foods and go back to eating the types of foods my grandparents did and preparing them in the same way.
Like I said, the information in this book is not surprising, but for me, it confirms what I have believed for quite some time now; stick to eating whole, natural, unprocessed food whenever possible. I highly recommend the book because if enough of us read it and start changing our eating habits, then maybe our country’s obesity epidemic will become a thing of the past.
