I wrote Let’s Get Real about Eating to help more people understand just what we are missing when we discount the connection between what we eat and how we feel. I want you to know what has happened in this country to our food and how these changes in our food affect our health. Then, I want to simplify the issues and identify ways you can apply this knowledge in your own life. There is a lot of conflicting information out there about what to eat, what not to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat. This, in turn, makes the whole issue of nutrition and eating seem very confusing and too hard to tackle. There is a real need for a set of guidelines that provide some answers—simple and straightforward answers based on common sense, nature’s laws and current research. I strive to give that set of guidelines to you in this book. Each chapter is packed with information that is summarized into a rule, and that rule is given a set of action steps to consider integrating into your daily life.
Finally, a book that breaks down everything we’ve heard and gets straight to the fundamentals of what we eat and how we feel. This book will not only open your eyes to what we eat, how it is grown, manufactured, and packaged but also the impact it has on our health, and then goes one step further and actually tells us what we can do about it. Whether you’re ready to take baby steps or make major changes, this book tells you how– plain and simple.
