Overview

The ultimate guide to using food as medicine from the Nutrition expert for the Today Show, Joy Bauer.

Nutritional healing has gone mainstream and researchers at top universities are publishing studies that show how the right foods can help prevent, manage, and sometimes entirely reverse the defining symptoms of a wide range of health issues.

Now Joy Bauer, a nutrition consultant to celebrities from actors to gold-medal winning athletes, explains exactly what to eat to lower high cholesterol and blood pressure, improve skin tone, sharpen memory, sleep better, and take charge of PMS, arthritis, and more. Each chapter focuses on one of the many conditions that drive people to seek Joy’s professional help and simulates a personal consultation. Readers walk away with up-to-the-minute, scientifically researched recommendations on particular foods to seek out and which ones to avoid, plus grocery lists, meal plans, recipes, and supplement recommendations presented in easy-to-follow 4-step prescriptive plans.

Let me start off by saying that I have been a loyal follower of the Today Show for a very long time. A few years back, a nutritionist by the name of Joy Bauer slowly started to become a regular expert they have on. At first i didn't really think much of it, but as i started listening to her tips and suggestions, i found myself eating better and losing weight without even realizing it. Cut to today, I am in the best shape of my life and all this is due to Joy! I have read every book and keep an eye out for all her segments. She is extremely knowledgeable and after doing lots of research on her, very well respected and at the top of her field (which is obviously nutrition). Food Cures, her newest book, is nothing short of spectacular. If you are serious about losing weight or trying to be a healthier eater, don't walk, run and buy this book! I can't say enough positive things about it. Thank you Joy for changing my life.

This is an excellent 'reference' book as well as one to get you started on the right path to better health, and yes weight loss is that's what you need. I already ate healthy but have painful arthritis and I really needed to lose 20 lbs so after seeing Joy on The Today Show promoting her book back in November, I made the purchase just before the holidays but didn't really get down to reading it until a bout with arthitis got me down earlier this year. I cannot believe what a difference this book has made in my life in just 3 months. I have never written a review until now, but I highly recommend this book to anyone who is REALLY ready to make a significant change in their life and health.

I LOVE this book! It is a roadmap for a healthy you. The user-friendly tone made it a delight to read. The information at the beginning of each chapter is fantastic. Well written, very informational, helped me understand my health issues more clearly - loved the real-life stories. The 4-Step Plans are AMAZING. Quick, easy, right to the point. It helped me figure out which supplements I should take and put an amazing grocery list right into my hands. I have made some of the recipes and they are delicious (Skinny Sheppard's Pie is terrific) and the food plan is so easy to follow. I was happily surprised to find all of the research links at the end of the book. No hocus-pocus here people. Joy has created a rock solid book based on the latest research and breakthroughs - Thanks Joy!

With our country amid an obesity epidemic and clear evidence that poor nutrition/eating prompts or worsens many diseases (from heart disease and cancer to PMS and migraine), Food Cures should be mandatory reading for every American teen and adult. No matter your goal -- to lose weight, be stronger, look better or cure disease -- this book tells you how to do it: The information is clear, accurate, and precise about what to eat, when, why, how much no matter your particular situation or goal. The 4-step programs are easy, safe, realistic and results-driven. But more than just great advice from two qualified sources -- nationally known, top-notch nutritionist Bauer and veteran health and medical author Svec -- Food Cures offers tasty, easy-to-preare recipes that put most cookbooks to shame. (Each has complete nutritent listings -- I've tried several, all delicious -- and are perfect for either family dinners or trying-to-impress parties). If you eat, you need this book. It will feed your mind and improve your body. A must for every kitchen and library!

I saw the artical in womens day. As i read i became more pulled in. I have been on a up hill climb learning to eat as a life style change. I took away small things from the article right away. I went to look her up. Found her diet plans and recipes i have enjoyed every one i tried so far. Saw she had some books. Purchased the it again i read and could do several small things that t believe will make a hugh difference . I am telling my friends different things i have learnd and they are trying it too. Wish i found sooner. My story is i have always been a picky eater. And i might have had an eatting disorder. Ionly eat what i liked and often only maybe twice aday from my tees on
