What People Are Saying

Barbara Haber
"Long before it was fashionable to do so, Nikki and David Goldbeck were writing intelligently about the relationship between healthy eating and healthy living. Now, in The Healthiest Diet In The World, they present their accumulated wisdom about nutrition along with delicious recipes that are clearly presented. This book should be on the shelf of anyone looking for thoughtful explanations about the human diet, and guidance for making rational choices about what to consume and how to prepare it." -- Curator of Books, Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe College

    Lots of information, easy to understand

    I haven't really used any of the recipes (although many of them sound great) but the nutritional information is very thorough and well-arranged. With so much contradictory information out there about what's really a good, healthy, sustainable diet, this book is refreshing in that the authors' research is broad and many factors are explained with excellent detail. This is much more than a cookbook. This is the best overview on nutrition that I've read yet. I've had it for a couple of years now, and I'm still consulting it very regularly.

    Okay, but does not live up to title

    While seemingly a well researched book, the recipes disappoint, and some of the nutritional information seems questionable.
