    SPOILER ALERT: The food puns are really bad in this review. Short review: Well organized, but take info with a grain of salt. Yuk yuk. For the most part this is well organized and the information is parsed out in a digestible way. I personally found the information on oils and grains p...

    "Thanks to bad science, the food lobby, and the junk-food industry's influence on research, Americans have been fed a lot of lies and misinformation about their food." "The $47 billion a year dairy industry is one of the most influential lobbies on capital hill." "Congress once d...

    Terrific information. Not quite a full 5 stars because there were a couple of items missing that I thought should be included. (For example, avocado oil is never mentioned and I think that?s an important one. Kombucha is never mentioned under beverages although he discusses fermented...

    I've read most of Dr. Hyman's books and this is my favorite to date. As a nutritionist, I'm frequently asked, "What should I eat? Which diet is best?" This book not only effectively answers those questions, but it also provides solid science and easy recommendations anyone can incorpor...

    Food and nutrition are complicated. I love food (really, who doesn't?), have some serious food allergies, survived cancer (that was exacerbated by soy consumption), and grew up in a home that overflowed with the latest Prevention-recommended supplements. I want to eat the most healthfu...

    Dr Hyman employs his own humor by coining the term 'Pegan' Diet (combining the wisdom of various diets such as Paleo and Vegan diets, for example). He structures the book that makes it very easy to follow. It is a very accessible book and contains lots of wisdom. It was heart-warming t...

    Excellent resource. We always question what is a reliable source in terms of food. Manufacturers sponsor studies so that the outcome is in their favor.... labels lie.... the government says we should eat so many servings of grains everyday... low fat is everywhere. It?s so hard to te...

    I am a follower of Dr. Hyman's practices, philosophies and medicine, so I was already very familiar with the content in this book. That said, it is a great reminder of how to get it right and to take control of your own health by following a lifetime nutritional plan that supports heal...

    I was fortunate to receive a free copy of this book. I have followed Dr. Hyman's PBS programs in the past and I like his basics for healthy eating. I read the book and enjoyed it. It is very easy to follow.He lays out the simple basics of healthy eating,just eat nature made foods,not m...

    This was a really good book. It simplifies nutrition and makes it easy to understand while still being comprehensive enough to cover all food groups and food choices. I learnt a lot from this book and have already started implementing some of its idea's. The only reason why I did n...

    I only gave this book 2 stars, not because it wasn?t good- although the information was very common sense. I admit, I am not the healthiest eater, but I knew almost all the answers to his quizzes. I am better educated to proper eating than I thought, so I didn?t really gain any new...

    Good introduction and presentation of eating on an ancestral platform. I was looking for one good book to be able to recommend as an introduction to new thinking in nutrition. This book could serve as a place to start. I'm writing this a couple of months after finishing the book, an...

    Good information. Dr. Hyman does a nice job highlighting the science that established our food recommendations (food pyramid, low fat diets, etc.) and present more recent science, showing why these are wrong. Food group by food group, he walks through old science, new science, what is ...

    A good, up-to-date synthesis of a multitude of food science and nutrition information. Reinforced a lot of things I already practice and even though I?m kind of a nut about these things I came away with some new information and ideas. The sections on the different food groups were ve...

    I won this through Goodreads and I haven't made any of the recipes yet, but the author does an awesome job of explaining nutritional fallacies and where they came from, as well as what the facts are. I also absolutely love the quizzes, they are helpful in realizing flawed thinking when...

    I thought it was an excellent book, with lots of good information, however, I am still going to eat my grains as long as they are presoaked. I also make sourdough bread with freshly ground flour and feel that it is healthier than store bought. I find that I take a little information fr...

    In ?Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?? Dr Mark Hyman expertly guides the reader through the many nutrition pitfalls of modern life. Each chapter goes deep into a food group, starting with meat. Nutritional studies are mentioned and meticulously noted. He is as concerned about the e...

    If you are confused by all the conflicting information about food and what we should eat, then read this. I heard Dr. Hyman on a podcast and decided to read this book and I am so glad I did. He has done an insane amount of research and his advice and guidelines make total sense. The go...

    This is an exceptional book. Everything you want to know about food, our Food Industry, the way food is grown, the things we should become aware of that may be harming us, even though the label may say "all natural" and other names disguising a food product as healthy. Dr. Hyman breaks...

    Good for those that believe in removing sugar and processed foods from their diet but don't want or believe in eliminating entire food groups, this book provides good information on the best choices from an health, economic and environmental consideration. ...

    Already being a fairly healthy eater, I'm not sure what I expected from this book . But I know I didn't expect to come away feeling that nothing is safe to eat! Unless I have access to only grass fed lamb and beef, chickens that run happily around on the farm all day and produce that...

    If you?re someone who wants the WHY behind your nutrition choices - this is the book for you. Dr. Hyman breaks down the science, the research and the business behind what we eat and what?s being sold to us - to help give you a clear picture of what you want to eat to be your health...

    I've read most of Dr. Hyman's books and this is my favorite to date. As a nutritionist, I'm frequently asked, "What should I eat? Which diet is best?" This book not only effectively answers those questions, but it also provides solid science and easy recommendations anyone can incorpor...

    Food and nutrition are complicated. I love food (really, who doesn't?), have some serious food allergies, survived cancer (that was exacerbated by soy consumption), and grew up in a home that overflowed with the latest Prevention-recommended supplements. I want to eat the most healthfu...

    Dr Hyman employs his own humor by coining the term 'Pegan' Diet (combining the wisdom of various diets such as Paleo and Vegan diets, for example). He structures the book that makes it very easy to follow. It is a very accessible book and contains lots of wisdom. It was heart-warming t...

    Excellent resource. We always question what is a reliable source in terms of food. Manufacturers sponsor studies so that the outcome is in their favor.... labels lie.... the government says we should eat so many servings of grains everyday... low fat is everywhere. It?s so hard to te...

    This is an exceptional book. Everything you want to know about food, our Food Industry, the way food is grown, the things we should become aware of that may be harming us, even though the label may say "all natural" and other names disguising a food product as healthy. Dr. Hyman breaks...

    Good for those that believe in removing sugar and processed foods from their diet but don't want or believe in eliminating entire food groups, this book provides good information on the best choices from an health, economic and environmental consideration. ...

    Already being a fairly healthy eater, I'm not sure what I expected from this book . But I know I didn't expect to come away feeling that nothing is safe to eat! Unless I have access to only grass fed lamb and beef, chickens that run happily around on the farm all day and produce that...

    If you?re someone who wants the WHY behind your nutrition choices - this is the book for you. Dr. Hyman breaks down the science, the research and the business behind what we eat and what?s being sold to us - to help give you a clear picture of what you want to eat to be your health...

    SPOILER ALERT: The food puns are really bad in this review. Short review: Well organized, but take info with a grain of salt. Yuk yuk. For the most part this is well organized and the information is parsed out in a digestible way. I personally found the information on oils and grains p...

    "Thanks to bad science, the food lobby, and the junk-food industry's influence on research, Americans have been fed a lot of lies and misinformation about their food." "The $47 billion a year dairy industry is one of the most influential lobbies on capital hill." "Congress once d...

    Terrific information. Not quite a full 5 stars because there were a couple of items missing that I thought should be included. (For example, avocado oil is never mentioned and I think that?s an important one. Kombucha is never mentioned under beverages although he discusses fermented...

    I've read most of Dr. Hyman's books and this is my favorite to date. As a nutritionist, I'm frequently asked, "What should I eat? Which diet is best?" This book not only effectively answers those questions, but it also provides solid science and easy recommendations anyone can incorpor...

    Food and nutrition are complicated. I love food (really, who doesn't?), have some serious food allergies, survived cancer (that was exacerbated by soy consumption), and grew up in a home that overflowed with the latest Prevention-recommended supplements. I want to eat the most healthfu...

    Dr Hyman employs his own humor by coining the term 'Pegan' Diet (combining the wisdom of various diets such as Paleo and Vegan diets, for example). He structures the book that makes it very easy to follow. It is a very accessible book and contains lots of wisdom. It was heart-warming t...

    Excellent resource. We always question what is a reliable source in terms of food. Manufacturers sponsor studies so that the outcome is in their favor.... labels lie.... the government says we should eat so many servings of grains everyday... low fat is everywhere. It?s so hard to te...

    I am a follower of Dr. Hyman's practices, philosophies and medicine, so I was already very familiar with the content in this book. That said, it is a great reminder of how to get it right and to take control of your own health by following a lifetime nutritional plan that supports heal...

    I was fortunate to receive a free copy of this book. I have followed Dr. Hyman's PBS programs in the past and I like his basics for healthy eating. I read the book and enjoyed it. It is very easy to follow.He lays out the simple basics of healthy eating,just eat nature made foods,not m...

    This was a really good book. It simplifies nutrition and makes it easy to understand while still being comprehensive enough to cover all food groups and food choices. I learnt a lot from this book and have already started implementing some of its idea's. The only reason why I did n...

    I only gave this book 2 stars, not because it wasn?t good- although the information was very common sense. I admit, I am not the healthiest eater, but I knew almost all the answers to his quizzes. I am better educated to proper eating than I thought, so I didn?t really gain any new...

    Good introduction and presentation of eating on an ancestral platform. I was looking for one good book to be able to recommend as an introduction to new thinking in nutrition. This book could serve as a place to start. I'm writing this a couple of months after finishing the book, an...

    Good information. Dr. Hyman does a nice job highlighting the science that established our food recommendations (food pyramid, low fat diets, etc.) and present more recent science, showing why these are wrong. Food group by food group, he walks through old science, new science, what is ...
