101 Healthiest Foods ROCKS!! A small change makes a big difference.
Fabulous book!! I read it in 3 hours, and then went and bought it for my sister and her family. It really is the "quick and easy guide" that it says it is. Very easy to read, understand, and adapt to your daily life. The foods are rated from 5 stars (best) to 1 star (avoid). Just seeing the foods in this way helps you make better choices. Don't look at this as a diet, but as a way of eating for life. My personal choice was to choose 5 star foods and stick with them, only going down to 4 and 3 star foods if needed, and to avoid 2 and 1 star foods altogether, when possible (18 months ago, I gave up meat due to family heart disease concerns). I'm not counting calories, just trying to keep portions in the food pyramid. I've lost 6 pounds in just a few weeks - an added bonus to eating healthy! I'm also a daily excerciser (Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds). For people who have a harder time swapping foods, try this - If you normally eat 1 star foods, try trading them for 2 star foods. Then keep moving up, at your own pace (2 stars for 3 stars, 3 stars for 4 stars), until you are at 5 star foods. My average daily intake starts with oatmeal with dried apricots for breakfast. My lunchbox is packed with peanut butter and jelly sandwich on wheat/flax bread, watermelon, orange wedges, almonds, cashews, homemade crackers (pumpernickel and wholegrain sourdough bread brushed with olive oil, baked until crisp, cut into squares), celery with cashew butter; dinner is spelt pasta with sauteed mushrooms and onions with a dollup of sour cream. Mix and match the foods anyway you like, for a whole new way of eating and a healthier life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
