Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
One of the questions we all want to ask our doctors is how do you protect your health? For the top physicians and researchers, the answer almost always is: it's all about making smart food choices. "What Doctors Eat" is an inside peek at the easy, yet ingenious ways experts design their diets to lower their disease risk and keep their weight steady. It's packed with advice the pros give their patients - and follow in their own lives - such as: eat half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day and lower blood sugar and cholesterol by 20 per cent; consider dark chocolate a health food - its antioxidants fight aging, smooth skin, and slash heart disease risk; get heart-healthy omega-3s from sardines; and they're low in mercury and high in vitamin D. To further take the guesswork out of eating smart, the doctors share their favourite recipes. Loaded with real-life tips and easy, flavourful recipes, "What Doctors Eat" is like having a healthy eating coach on call 24/7.

WHAT DOCTORS EAT is my most recent read. From Prevention, and Dr. Tasneem Bhatia I would say that it's a book whose strength is that it provides the reader with a pre-planned 30 day diet. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are all listed so all you have to do is track down the ingredients and brace yourself for more veggies and fish.
The diet essentially falls into 'the Mediterranean' category. And the authors provide all the evidence most people will need to realize that this is a healthier way to live.
Where the book falls short for me is:
--Nuts! I have nut allergies. And it seemed like the majority of recipes had peanuts, almonds, walnuts...
--I would have liked a lot more nutritional information. But I'm not going to take away a rating-Star for that because many people don't want that information. They trust Prevention and they just want to get on with eating differently and this program will be great for that.
--Tofu?!? Really. Tofu is now garnering tons of bad press. First, it's nearly all genetically modified (GMO). Second, it impairs thyroid function and vitamin absorption. Third, it's mimics estrogen.
--Turkey Sausage? Nitrates are one of THE oldest chemicals that have been identified as cancer-causing. Plus, turkeys are fed huge amounts of genetically modified corn and hormones.
Where the book might fall short for others:
--Nuts, which were mentioned above.
--Fish. This is a very fishy diet. I happen to love fish, but I know that other people don't share that affection.
This is a beautiful looking book, BUT it's not for people with nut allergies, nor for those who dislike fish.
On the good side, there's a pre-planned menu for an entire month and you get plenty to eat. In addition, if you are one of those people who like a little daily dieting inspiration, you could read one of the doctor blurbs every day. Also, at the end of the book there's a section on easy exercises to round out the program.
