Optimum nutrition is a revolution in health care - it means giving your body the best possible intake of nutrients to allow you to be as healthy as you can. Through easy-to-follow questionnaires and a simple step-by-step plan THE OPTIMUM NUTRITION BIBLE shows you what to eat and what nutrients to take to live a healthier, happier life.
Discover how to: boost your immune system; increase your energy and fitness levels; prevent serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease; turn back the ageing clock; lower your blood pressure without drugs; increase your IQ, memory and mental performance. You'll also find fascinating information on why the wrong fats can kill and the right fats can heal, and what a well-balanced diet really means.

Based on scientific research and written by one of the world's leading nutrition experts, this book is a must if you care about your health.

Review:

Do you want more energy, emotional balance, health, mental sharpness, resistance to disease, and a longer, productive life? You can achieve this by changing your eating habits to achieve the ideal balance of essential nutrients, asserts Patrick Holford, a leading British nutritional author and founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London.

While it may sound simple, this isn't an easy task--Holford identifies 50 essential nutrients, and each person's need for each nutrient may be different--so you'll need a healthful diet plus supplementation. In its simplest terms, Holford recommends a diet that is 70 percent carbohydrates (whole grains, beans, vegetables, fruit, avoiding sugar and refined foods), 15 percent protein (mostly vegetable protein from beans, lentils, quinoa, soy, and legumes), and 15 percent fat (Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils), supplemented with a high-strength vitamin and mineral preparation and 1,000 mg of vitamin C a day. This book goes much deeper than these recommendations, with discussions of antioxidants, phytochemicals, heart health, immune boosters, hormonal balance, bone health, infection fighting, and much more. Questionnaires help you pinpoint your individual need for dietary change and supplementation. Holford also includes the nutrient needs and dietary advice for specific diseases. A valuable resource. --Joan Price

From the Publisher:

*A revised edition of the best-selling nutritional guide, with an A-to-Z guide to specific health problems and how to heal them with optimum nutrition. *Unlike modern medicine, which tends to treat diseases not people, the optimum nutrition approach considers a human being as a whole, with an interconnected mind and body designed to adapt to health if the circumstances are right. *Additional chapters cover boosting your immune system; preventing cancer and heart disease; how to increase your IQ, memory, and mental performance; improving skin health; and much more.
