If you have ever walked down a health store aisle to be confronted with thousands of supplements, and wished you could magically understand which ones really work for health benefits; or if you want to quickly and easily figure out whether a new fad food is really good for you or not--then this book is for you.
Beyond Foods The Handbook of Functional Nutrition is a true handbook; i.e., short and easy-to-understand. It introduces the 4 Building Blocks of Health, a unique simple yet comprehensive health model that explains Functional Nutrition in layman’s language. With its clear communication style, Beyond Foods successfully takes the very complex subject of how nutrition creates health and breaks it down into logical building blocks.
You are not just told what to eat. You are given a clear understanding of why foods are good for you, or not; and this allows you to make ongoing choices in the marketplace long after the book is read.
Beyond Foods won the 2014 Bronze medal at the national ELit Awards for Excellence in the health genre.
