More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The eating habits of six ordinary but busy people--including a well-known syndicated newspaper columnist, Judy Markey--here provide a taking-off point for the authors, who insist that good nutrition is within reach of everyone. In this upbeat (for a change) book on nutrition, there is no scolding of dietary ``sinners.'' Instead, Finn, president of the American Dietetic Association and a professor in Ohio State's College of Medicine, and medical writer Kass show how to incorporate sound nutrition principles into our lives, whether we hunger for the highbrow, use a microwave every day, or habitually eat in fast-food dives. They also provide ``less than perfect'' dietary options, along with means of making better choices. The secret: integrate smarter nutrition into each meal and each day, from wiser shopping at the supermarket to healthier meals. Readers and cooks short on time will appreciate the authors' ability to slice through the myriad myths about nutrition--and will admire their recipes. Especially effective is an annotated list of cookbooks. And for those unwilling to give up Big Macs, dietary ratings and selection tips are surrendered. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Now here's a nutrition book you can really sink your teeth into. Finn, president-elect of the American Dietetic Association, and Kass, a medical writer, address the practical aspect of how to fit good nutrition into a life jam-packed with activities that all too frequently impinge on good intentions: two-career families, health club workouts, eating on the run. They also consider personal factors: controlling weight and cholesterol levels, the effects of stress on over- or undereating. This book is chock full of suggestions for incorporating good nutrition and healthy eating habits into everyday life. The authors evaluate fast foods and prepared supermarket dishes as well as cookbooks. Menu plans and recipes are included. Recommended for public libraries.-- Carol Spielman Lezak, General Learning Corp., Northbrook, Ill.
