Reality Food

By Joanna McMillan

The Zone, eating right for your type, no carbs after five, high-protein/low-carb, high-carb/low-fat - just what should we be eating?

Nutrition is a dynamic science that is subject to frequent revision. We are constantly assailed by new fad diets and outlandish nutritional theories that attract their high profile, slender devotees. Most of us are terminally confused about what are the current recommendations for a healthy diet.

Reality Food debunks the misconceptions and explains the latest thinking on such complex matters as the GI index, saturated fats and supplements in a clear, rational and friendly way. It's about good eating on a daily basis, which is vital for staying lean and healthy throughout our life.

Topics include macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fats), micronutrients (vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants) and also weight loss and exercise. There are meal plans, shopping guidelines, ideas for appetising meals and snacks and helpful suggestions for reducing dietary fat.

Reality Food is not prescriptive and does not suggest buying unusual or expensive ingredients or changing our eating habits beyond what is achievable. Eating well has never been so straightforward and delicious.

This book will change the way you shop
Shopping for dinner has never been so confusing. The shelves are stacked with a dazzling array of products and more and more of them claim to benefit our health in some way. We know that these claims are more about creating commercial opportunities for manufacturers than making us healthier but it is still easy to be swayed. Read the label is an easy to understand guide to food labelling that decodes the spin of marketing speak and tells you exactly how to interpret the competing facts and figures.
