#1 New York Times Bestseller A definitive compendium of food wisdom Eating doesn’t have to be so complicated. In this age of ever-more elaborate diets and conflicting health advice, Food Rules brings welcome simplicity to our daily decisions about food. Written with clarity, concision, and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan’s trademark, this indispensable handbook lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page, accompanied by a concise explanation. It’s an easy-to-use guide that draws from a variety of traditions, suggesting how different cultures through the ages have arrived at the same enduring wisdom about food. Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, “What should I eat?” "In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, by Michael Pollan." --Jane Brody, The New York Times "The most sensible diet plan ever? We think it's the one that Michael Pollan outlined a few years ago: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” So we're happy that in his little new book, Food Rules, Pollan offers more common-sense rules for eating: 64 of them, in fact, all thought-provoking and some laugh-out-loud funny." --The Houston Chronicle " It doesn't get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan's back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy." --The Los Angeles Times   "A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf."  --Tara Parker-Pope, The New York Times

4.0 Food Rules by Michael Pollan
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...

2.0 Food Rules: An Eater's Manual
The book is not exactly bad and it would have been quite ok had it not been for the fact I've already read quite a lot on the subject. There was nothing new for me in there, and all the "precious pieces of advice" were actually nothing more than common sense would dictate to anyone.

3.0 “Use the apple test...If you're not hungry enough to eat an apple, you're not hungry.”
A really quick read, less than an hour, that focuses on 64 easy rules for changing what and how we eat. The rules fall into three categories: 1) eat food, which means less processed foods and more whole foods, 2) eat mostly plants, these focus on eating the leaves and a variety of different plants a...
