One of the best books I've ever read on nutrition. Usually they tend to be boring. This one is informative and easy to read. I recommend it to all my friends. It has something about everything and something for everyone. I promise you'll tell all your friends to read it too. It's just a book you'll want to keep around the house for reference.

Clear, well organized. I had taken this book out on library loan and decided it was well worth money spent.

Was recommended through my physician's hospital. Something simple that provides the basic information I needed. I am a consumer and not in the health industry so I really only needed something to give me a heads-up. Easy to read and understand and written by a qualified professional.

Great book. Have all the information you need for a healthy lifestyle. Read it through once at least, then you can always use it as a reference book later. Cannot think about a better book.

2013 arrived slowly in our family as we had to deal with sickness over the Christmas vacation... On New Year's Eve, my husband and oldest son drove through the state of New York and back in order to pick up a comic collection. Needless to say, when they arrived at home later that day, they were tired and we all went to sleep. However, that doesn't mean that I haven't decided to try something new or get healthier in 2013.

I will admit that I am overweight and I am pleased to say that this week (after postponing it since the beginning of January), I have decided to become more active at home. Winter is difficult... Back in the fall, my husband and I had taken the habit to go walk every day for about 30 minutes. When the cold temperatures came.... well it got put on the backburner. So in order to get back in shape and while waiting for the warmer days to come, I have decided to get back on the Wii Fit. A couple of years ago, I have lost quite a bit of weight with Weight Watchers and the Wii Fit. So I thought I could get back at it and be careful at my calories intake during the day. With the help of an app and the Wii Fit, I have done three days of exercises and healthy eating. But I don't want to stop there. I want to learn more about eating well and making wise choices.

So when I go approached in promoting the DK Start Something New Boutique, I quickly selected four books to promote. One of these book is the Nutrition for Life. Before I share my thoughts about book, let me present you the table of contents:
Assess your health and lifestyle - nutrition-energy balance, look at your lifestyle, check your physical health, assess your shape and weight, do you need to change? and making changes.
Food for life - why we need food, the need for fats, good fats/bad fats, reducing saturated fat, proteins for growth, carbohydrates for energy, facts about fiber, what are vitamins, phytochemicals, what are minerals.
Elements of a healthy diet - making the best dietary choices, dietary guidelines, wholesome grains, vegetables for health, fruits for health, benefits of dairy, healthy protein sources, legumes, seeds, nuts, eggs, fluids, vegetarian and eating away from home.
Eating for the time of your life - when our needs change, children, growth, baby, toddlers, preschool children, school-age children, adolescents, adulthood, pregnancy, motherhood, menopause, athletes. middle-to-later years.
The truth about weight control - why weight control is important, looking at diet plans, extra help with weight loss, your personal diet plan, regular exercises and weight loss, children and weight management, when you need to gain weight.
Food as medicine - improving health through diet, cardiovascular disease and nutrition, respiratory disorders, digestive disorders, disorders of the urinary system, bone and joint disorders, diabetes, food allergies and intolerances, migraine headache, cancer, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, dietary supplements.
The food you buy - nutrition and modern food preparation, how food is preserved, smart shopping, how to store food, preserving food at home, food preparations and cooking, food hygiene.
Food analysis - what is in the food you eat?

I find this book packed with useful information that could help anyone no matter at what stage of life they are. There are some sections that doesn't touch our family anymore - pregnancy, baby food, and toddlers - but still I can gain much in reading the book. One of the first section I have read was the menopause one because even if I am in my early 40s I have been in menopause for almost 3 years now. However, my bones are healthy and I have turned toward a natural way of dealing with the effects of menopause and to this day I do not have to use hormones. I also explore the diet directory and read about some of them. In this section you will learn more about the diets out there and how it claims to work and the regimen impose to the followers. You will also get a paragraph explaining to you if the diet is healthy (and indirectly if it will work...). Personally, I have a positive experience with Weight Watchers and know that one of the reasons I gain some weight or stayed on a plateau is because I stopped calculating the point. So using an app for the calories help to determine if I am eating my daily quota and not more.

As I write this review, I am still reading some part of the book in order to absorb as much information on the subject. I am planning to change some eating habits of mine in 2013 and discover new flavors as well. One of the food I want to try this year is the fig as I have never had any before. I also want to continue to try out new recipes (that's another review I promise! *grin*) with my family. And moving is a big one on my list. I have already started with the Wii Fit and plan to include more activities in my day-to-day life with the kids.

If you want to learn more about nutrition, I strongly suggest that you check you the Nutrition for Life. You won't be disappointed.
I am really surprised that a book with so much inaccurate information could be published by two doctors. They obviously didn't do much research. Here are some of the grossly inaccurate statements made in the book.

"Fruits and vegetables are fat-free, low in sodium, and provide....."

Almost all fruits and vegetables have some fat in them and it is plenty of fat to maintain good health.

"...so eating three balanced meals is the optimum way to achieve a healthy diet."

Grazing at whole foods in small amounts has been found to be the optimum way to eat.

"With the exception of soy and soy products, plant proteins do not provide the full complement of amino acids, and must be combined with other foods if they are the sole source of dietary protein."

Food combining is a theory from a 1971 book "Diet for a Small Planet" that was dis-proven, and in 1981, the author recanted and revised the book which eliminated the protein combining theory. Also, soy is not the only plant with all essential amino acids. Lentils, pinto beans, quinoa, hemp and other plant-products contain all essential amino acids.

"Because of the limitations of vegetarian diets, careful planning is needed to avoid nutritional deficiencies that can otherwise occur."

This is repeated over and over again, but ignores the fact that most Americans eating a Standard American Diet are significantly more deficient in a variety of vitamins and minerals than most vegetarians.

In addition to these few inaccuracies I found, the book recommends a lot of highly processed crap! Cheese, yogurt, sour cream, pasta, breads, sherbet, etc. This book is targeted at people on very unhealthy Standard American Diets who eat fried, highly processed, meat based diets and attempts to get them to eat less unhealthy, but I wouldn't say the advice in this book promotes a truly healthy diet.

2/3's of Americans are overweight because of reading the kind of advice in this book. Very outdated and poorly researched.
