Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In her latest book, nutritionist Gittleman (Beyond Pritikin) asserts that, when it comes to diets, one size does not fit all. With sound logic, data from a number of scientific studies and a wealth of personal experience, the author examines popular eating regimens, including vegetarian, restricted-calorie and low-fat/high carbohydrate, explaining why no single plan can possibly work for everybody. While the different-diets-for-different-bodies idea doesn't break new ground, Gittleman's proposition that an individual's heritage, blood type and metabolism combine to create unique nutritional requirements will sound right to many readers. Mapping out dietary guidelines for each blood type and for metabolic "slow burners" and "fast burners," Gittleman gives a particularly stringent list of general "no-nos" for everyone (refined sugars, processed carbohydrates, trans fats like margarine). In-depth chapters on carbohydrates, fats, proteins, exercise and medical conditions brought on by nutritional deficiencies add substance to this volume. (Mar.)

    Important Concepts, Terrible Writing

    This book deals with some important and potentially very useful concepts, but oy! is it badly written. Between the three credited authors and two acknowledged editors, not one of them seems to know that 'phenomena' is plural, not singular, or the proper use of the comma. It also exhibits all the worst excesses of diet-book writing, including an excessive use of italics and exclamation marks. The chapter on exercise is badly outdated in that it tells its readers that taking a walk or vacuum-cleaning the house is as beneficial as attending a gym. While any exercise is undoubtedly better than none, this point of view cannot be supported either by research or common sense. It also ignores the crucial connection between weight training and osteoporosis prevention. For those interested in an individual approach to health and diet, Dr Peter D'Adamo's book is better written, easier to comprehend, and better organized.
