Meet the Author

Jim Ray is the CEO of PrePak Products, owners of the Balanced Days, Balanced Lives and NutriMirror(R) brands. It was Jim's battle against high blood pressure, along with his doctor's advice to limit sodium intake to ''one teaspoon per day,'' that led Michael to design and build the NutriMirror Food Journal system--an empowering diet analysis tool that shows exactly how the way you eat and move contribute to your overall nutritional and calorie balance and your long-term health. NutriMirror has since helped growing thousands of people in the same way it helped Jim.

    I love the book and I love the concept!

    Excellent book that gives guidance on how to eat to be healthy and achieve your weight goals, whether to gain, lose, or maintain. Great recipes and ideas for days laid out that ensure you're getting enough iron, calcium, fiber, etc. I highly recommend this book.
