I was gifted a free e-book copy in exchange for my honest review. After enjoying so much book 1 from this same author I moved on to book 2, where the authors exposes true facts about various famous diets and how they seek fast results in short period of time. I found it very interesting when it was summarized that the best diet depends on a absolute change in one’s permanent eating habits. The book continues to present how each and every one of us have different eating habits and taste, so the diet should be specifically adapted for each person; like myself, I prefer salty foods ; so always salads over fruits. The author made me intrigued about discussions over the food industry and their analyses to input more sales ; I.e. super food, organic, gluten -free , low fat , etc and the myths created around these types of foods that always made me look for them without knowing the true facts behind it; were they actually beneficial as marketing exposes them to be?
The book relies its research on various scientific journals, with many quoted reports on the footnotes, which makes it very creditable. He even brings up some tips on how we can use filters on searching for nutrition and food information, based on science and reliable sources, for improved knowledge. In conclusion it is an enlightening read that brings up a very important point of view: people should focus more on consuming good & affordable meals; because they are healthy and balanced, cheap and tasty, and not necessarily just go for the most promoted alternative by brands.
