Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
What at first glance would appear to be yet another look at the relationships of food with emotional state is, instead, an extremely well-researched probe of what a good diet can mean to both body and mind. Somer, editor of Nutrition Report, dispels many of the myths about specific foods and diet patterns, putting in their place scientific studies showing the links between mood and diet. Among the topics she discusses are food cravings, stress and diet, food allergies and intolerances, eating disorders, premenstrual syndrome and how food can affect sleep patterns. More than 100 tables, charts and worksheets help readers evaluate their diets and make appropriate changes. Menus and recipes are also included, and the need for supplements is discussed. Readers will appreciate Somer's no-nonsense style and the absence of contrived anecdotes to make important dietary points. Although some may find that the book gets off to a slow start, those who stick with it will find a valuable nutritional sourcebook. Jan.
Library Journal
The author of numerous books on nutrition (e.g., Nutrition for Women, LJ 10/15/93) and the editor of the monthly Nutrition Report, Somer has compiled ample information from scientific research that links nutrition to depression, mood swings, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). She includes over 100 tables, charts, and worksheets to help readers access their own mood swings plus nutritional menus and recipes to help counter these swings. Her only false step is recommending that anyone short on time purchase pre-cut vegetables, since vegetables begin losing nutrients when they are cut. Only those who are truly interested in nutritional research will be motivated to read this book from cover to cover, but it will serve as a good reference for any reader. Recommended for large nutrition collections.-Loraine F. Sweetland, Rebok Memorial Lib., Silver Spring, Md.
