The book’s sole purpose is to give you some guidelines for eating. he links between diet and health according to this novel is that individuals who eat a Western diet (lots of processed food, food with added s...

A book that collects various adages, sayings, proverbs and the like from all over the world about how to eat. Eating shouldn't be about supplying our bodies with fuel. It should be a communion with nature. Not one with factories and food scientists. Ideally, I wish to implement all these rules. Ok, ...

Pollan's philosophy boils down to seven words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. The 64 rules presented in this book provide guidelines to follow that credo in a common sense way.I love that Pollan gives us wiggle room - there's no need to follow every rule, but several will surely stay wit...

My absolute FAVORITE rule is "Be the Kind of Person Who Takes Supplements -- Then Skip the Supplements." Runner-up is "It's Not Fo...

This is a good and very fast read that breaks down and simplifies some basic eating/food/health tips. A lot of it may seem common sense to some of us, but there is a difference between knowing and doing and this is a nice way to remind us why certain things (whole foods for example) are important. ...

I read (actually, listened to) In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto a couple years ago; I remember listening to it in airports on my way back from the 2010 ALTA conference in Philadelphia, which dates it to November 2010. It was good, though a bit officious and prescriptive in tone (though, in t...
