Overview

What constitutes healthy eating, and a healthy weight, has become a hugely complex—and too often vexing—question for those looking to discover, attain, and maintain their ideal weight. The Nutrition Solution takes a fresh approach. Based on the idea that no single diet is universally applicable, the book first shows readers how to determine their body type. Next, Dr. Kristal, who runs a nutritional clinic, outlines the appropriate diet for each type, including which foods to include and which to avoid. Dr. Kristal worked extensively with William Wolcott, the originator of metabolic typing, and draws on scientific studies to show struggling dieters the way to practical, healthful eating for each metabolic type. Included are detailed strategies for finding freedom from out-of-control food cravings—the downfall of many a dieter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
All those who wish to be as healthy as they can be, and especially those with health problems that defy conventional treatments, should read this book. I recommend it most highly."
—John R. Lee, M.D., from the Foreword

"Eating for one's individual metabolism is a time-tested truth. Common sense alone should tell us that the concenpt "one diet fits all" could not fly, anymore than one medical treatment could fit all. Celebrate your uniqueness, even if it is with foods shunned by conventional paradigms."
—Robert J. Rowen, Second Opinion
