Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Food blogger and neuroscientist Rose maintains her weight, she says proudly and sheepishly, by eating whatever she wants—and what she wants is "healthy food most of the time." In this food-positive self-help volume, Rose rejects dieting and deprivation: "Shouldn't there be more to life than constantly denying yourself the things you enjoy?" She bemoans regimens such as Atkins and Weight Watchers. Instead, in addition to what we eat, she encourages readers to pay attention to how and why we eat; elements that can significantly impact long-term health. However, she coins cringe-worthy terms like "foodist" and "healthstyle", her discussion can get awkward amid amateurish writing, and she pulls quotes from random places (Yoda, for one). For the most part, however, Rose does a decent job laying out her good-food plan. She offers advice on shopping and cooking, provides workable lists for well-stocked pantries, and gathers key points into occasional sidebars: "Nine Surefire Ways to Sabotage Your Weight Loss" "The Top 10 Most Underrated Health Foods" "Forty-Two Code Words for Sugar". Although nothing in Rose's book is earth-shattering news, the enthusiasm with which she delivers it remains accessible and encouraging. (May)
Tim Ferriss
“Darya is my favorite kind of scientist—she finds the simple in the complex, the beauty in the chaos. If anyone will make you love (and rediscover) food, it’s her.”
Andrew Weil
“In Foodist, Darya Pino gives the most sensible advice I’ve read about attaining and maintaining healthy weight without dieting. Her science-based approach tells you how to enjoy real food, make the best food choices, and not deny yourself the pleasures of eating. I recommend this book.”
