Eating For Energy and Weight Loss - Eating for Energy
I have an eating disorder and I have, therefore, read many books on
nutrition. This is one of the best books I have discovered on the subject.
Author Yuri Elkaim also encourages us to discover the world of plant-
based whole foods, which I will admit, I had considered in the past, but
felt somewhat intimidated about. It occured to me that we know precious
little about these foods and this is the premise of this book.
The Author Yuri Elkaim is a kinesiologist, personal trainer, motivational
speaker, nutritionist and raw foodist.
This book does not discuss the virtues of hamburgers and hot dogs -
rather Elkaim takes a look at some of the healthiest (yet unknown) foods
out there, including foods such as quinoa and flax seed. These are names
that I have heard floating around for several years now, but I never really
knew all that much about them.
There are quite a few sections in this book which include a detailed look
at the nutritional value of certain foods -including their medical benefits.
There is also a great recipe section, which, from the look of the recipes,
will render some quick and tasty meals - although I must admit that for a
novice, some of the ingredients seemed a bit daunting. I loved the
smoothie section - which gave me some new ideas.
You will also find a 12 week meal plan that will help you feel better, lose
weight and prevent disease. The section on exercise was interesting but
there was really nothing new to learn there.
This is a no-nonsense guide, written by someone who has been there. I
loved the way this book is easy to read and makes perfect sense. I do
believe that better nutrition is the key to health and that somewhere
along the line, we lost our way when it comes to eating well. This book is
a great booster to get you motivated and moving in the right direction.
