Yes, books, the best of which, we believe, is sitting just under your nose, but in reality, simply reading. There are many diet fad books out there, some of which may work, but are difficult to follow and others which purport to be simple, but in essence do you more harm than good in the long run. We do not advocate diets or fads. What we highly advocate is educating yourself and, possibly, the best way to do that is by reading legitimate books by credentialed authors and stories from reliable newspapers and magazines. Medicine is constantly changing, and for the most part improving. All good physicians keep up on the latest treatments by reading medical journals which publish results of the most current scientific research. If you are motivated enough you may wish to do the same, though for most of you, the medical terminology may just makes things more confusing. There is much to learn outside of this book, despite its comprehensive nature. You can pick up books on stress-relief, exercise and cooking. Cookbooks are an incredible way to learn to make food—particularly fruits, vegetable and grains—taste good and to broaden your palate for healthy cooking and healthy living.
