Rethinking the food pyramid

Important and articulate book about the new and revolutionary direction diets are taking. For years we've been told to avoid fat. Fat was the culprit for obesity, heart disease, and cancer. The dietary equivalent to the devil had to be reduced to minuscule portions in our daily consumption. This introduced the carb trend, where calories were replaced by whole grains and pasta. Dr. Feinman reevaluates the importance of the right combinations and gives solid facts about the dire directions of unhealthy eating. In a non preaching way, he urges readers to make the right choices, explaining the biochemical reasons to rethink our menus and not to be afraid of fat. Smaller amounts of fat keep one fuller, for longer periods of time. Processed carbs have been instrumental in the diabetes and obesity explosion rocking America. Hard to digest, lol. However, my son has followed this lifestyle for close to three years and the proof is in his dramatic weight loss and healthier lifestyle. Dr. Feinman gives compelling information for the public to question years of training and think about retiring the antiquated food pyramid to the museums, where it belongs.

Happy Reading!

  2. Strange idea and it requires a total reprogramming of everything I thought I knew about dieting.
