Description

Explaining the facts and fallacies about nutrition and health, this book is a guide to eating for health and enjoyment. The author discusses coronary heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity, and gives advice on how to improve health. As well as looking at the issues surrounding cholesterol, fibre and the different kinds of fat in food, he outlines a weight-reducing programme designed to modify eating patterns rather than distort them with a rigidly imposed regimen.show more
