I like the author, Dr. Mark Hyman. The book is well organized. The book has recommendations about eating healthy and still being the optimal weight. Hyman recycles his diet plan once again. It remains a sensible, anti-inflammatory, whole-food/"real food" approach. From grains to legumes, meat to dairy, fats to artificial sweeteners, and beyond, Dr. Hyman debunks misconceptions and breaks down the fascinating science in his signature accessible style. He also explains food's role as powerful medicine capable of reversing chronic disease and shows how our food system and policies impact the environment, the economy, social justice, and personal health, painting a holistic picture of growing, cooking, and eating food in ways that nourish our bodies and the earth while creating a healthy society. He recommends beverages, grains and recipes. Sugar should be avoided. Soybeans are good. He discusses saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, and monounsaturated fat. Fresh fruit should be eaten instead of drinking juice with a lot of sugar. He lists anti-cancer, immune boosting, anti-microbial. He discusses organic food.
