Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Crayhon, host of the nationally syndicated radio show ``The Voice of Wellness,'' and a New York-area nutritionist who heads Designs for Health, an organization devoted to devising customized nutrition plans for clients, has surveyed his audience's most commonly asked questions with bearing on health and addressed them in this useful book. In a chapter titled``Is Sugar Bad for You?,'' for example, he explains the effect of sugar on the immune system: ``When we are healthy and avoid sugar, our protective white blood cells circle the body like energetic prizefighters knocking out viruses and bacteria...yet these same protective pugilists can be knocked unconscious by sugar.'' Crayhon reconsiders the health benefits and drawbacks of alcohol (and lauds red wine for its antioxidants). He explains how to spur energy by natural means, such as aerobic exercise, quitting caffeine, and taking in ``energizing nutrients'' like magnesium and potassium. His writing, direct and concise, covers much ground in a well-organized and friendly manner that will bring current knowledge of nutrition to a broad audience. (Jan.)
Library Journal
The author of this well-organized and easily understood book is a certified nutritionist who operates six clinics and hosts two syndicated radio programs about nutrition. Although many of his recommendations echo those in other recent titles advocating good health through nutrition (e.g., Gene Spiller's The Super Pyramid Eating Program, LJ 3/15/93; Dean Ornish's Eat More, Weigh Less, LJ 6/1/93; and Neal Barnard's Food for Life, LJ 6/15/93), he also recommends supplementation as essential to obtaining optimum health. Crayhon believes that a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet is not healthful for some population groups and suggests that individuals look to their own ancestry and personal situation in choosing an appropriate diet. He cites hydrogenated fat, rather than cholesterol, as the culprit in our epidemic of heart disease and other diet-related illnesses. His book offers a thorough explanation of all nutrients, with explicit guides for selecting a beneficial combination. Crayhon also discusses specific health problems and nutrition, including high blood pressure, PMS, and osteoporosis. An excellent addition to nutrition collections.-Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg

Highly recommend this book for solid, no nonsense approach to eating the right foods at the right time, if only more people would read it there would not be an obesity epidemic in this country. Makes sense...
