Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is an orange or a guava the best source of vitamin C? Is farm-raised or wild salmon higher in omega 3 fats? If you’ve always wondered what foods to turn to when you need more fiber in your diet or which foods you can count on when you’ve got an upset stomach, The Best Things You Can Eat as the answers, and even a few surprises. Registered Dietitian and bestselling author David Grotto draws on the latest nutritional and scientific research to assemble the most authoritative compilation of food rankings ever produced. Here are just some of the useful lists you’ll find inside:

* 8 Best Foods for Lowering Cholesterol

* Top 6 Foods to Control Your Blood Pressure
* 7 Best Foods for Stopping Bad Breath
* 5 Best Foods to Slow Down Aging
* Top 5 Foods for Numbing Aches and Pains

Review:

"Well aware of the American obsession with lists, leading dietician Grotto has compiled this index of top foods, designed to showcase individual foods' particular benefits. He arranged lists in dozens of categories: by nutrient content, by body part, even by specific ailments (from black beans and black raspberries for breast cancer to carrot juice's superiority in maintaining gum health). Beyond the many lists, readers will find an objective and highly readable cornucopia of advice and information as Grotto briefly explains why each food is a valuable addition to one's diet and he outlines how understanding the mechanisms of specific health problems is central to his approach. Readers will find real answers about the nutrient content of all kinds of readily available foods, become aware of surprisingly healthy 'shocker foods,' and emerge more educated about food's health benefits — — whether they're new to choosing healthier foods or not. This exhaustively researched book should be a top pick for any nutrition-conscious foodie. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
