Nutrition  Book Reviews

Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook
by Nancy Clark


As a personal fitness trainer, I am always looking for common sense ways to explain proper nutrition to my clients. At first I bought this book for myself to help improve my running and get the most out of my workouts. What I found was a book that will not only help an athlete improve performance but has common sense nutritional information for almost anyone. Nancy is a Registered Dietitian who cuts through the nutrition myths and lays out a coming sense eating plan that works for almost anyone. If you are looking for a new fad diet you won't find it here although she has added a couple of chapters on sensible weight management in the latest edition. Sports specific chapters include how to carbo load before an event and what it really takes to add muscle mass. The book has over 200 quick and easy recipes that help round out your nutrition plan. After you read it you will wonder why you didn't take this common sense approach to nutrition years ago. Even if you buy it and don't read it from cover to cover, you can still pick up invaluable tips just browsing through and reading her informative tables and charts. A great way to jumpstart your nutrition plan by eating sensibly, keeping your body fueled and keeping your energy up.

The Solution
by Laurel Mellin, RD,LD


As a dietitian, I am bombarded with the latest weight loss books! Many of my clients come in with these books in hand ready toloseweight once and for all with an"extreme" diet . The Solution is written by a Registerd Dietitian whoactually helped completeweigth loss research with "Solution Method" in San Fransico. It's a balanced approach to uncover reasons why we gain and hold on to weight. It discusses "six cures" including nurturing and balanced eating among others. It is a work oriented book that provides several journal topics which readers are encouraged to complete. I use this book in my private practice with great results!! Try it for yourself.

Fast Food Nation
by Eric Schlosser


The Fast Food Nation is a reality check on our nation's food intake! Do you know what's in your hamburger? Although lengthy and in depth the book offers a detailed account of the behind the scenes "junk" associated with American Fast Food. We wonder why our nation is getting larger! Not only does it discuss the horrific content of the food sold at these establishments but it also recognizes the poor work environment and it's impact on our country as a whole. Once you read this book..........you may think twice before "driving through for your favorite burger"!
