Product description

We all know that we need to be leading healthier, more active lives but it is all too easy to feel overwhelmed by all the advice, much of it conflicting, about which foods are best for which condition, and what we should all be eating on a day-to-day basis. Written by Michael van Straten, one of the leading experts on all aspects of nutrition, Food for Life explains the building blocks of a healthy life-long diet and how to achieve this amidst all the other demands of a busy life. The focus of the book is on the needs and demands of different age groups - The Seven Ages of Life. This central section of the book shows the top ten foods for each stage of life and explains how eating the right foods can help you combat the different problems of each age. The means of doing this is found in The Recipes - tasty simple-to-prepare dishes guaranteed to give you and your family good health. Unique in its emphasis on making all the essential information user-friendly, the book provides a background to all the necessary nutrients as well as when you need them and how to incorporate them into your diet.
