Excellent book with great, easy-to-follow nutritional advice!, December 3, 2009
By Edward Dodge "Ed Dodge, MD, Author of Dan's S... (Inverness, FL)
This is an outstanding diet book because it is based on sound nutritional principles. I'm a retired family physician who has studied nutritional principles all my professional life. I'm usually skeptical of books with "Diet" in the title, because they usually promote some kind of fad diet, and I've seen dozens of such diets come and go. This book is different. It is based on solid science, but it is also very attractively presented. The illustrations are great. They are plentiful, very appealing, and always supportive of the written text. The authors have done an excellent job of presenting complex nutritional concepts in clear concise language that is very easy to follow. The title of the book summarizes the basic concept beautifully. A plate full of colorful veggies and whole grains is high in fiber, very nutritious, and filling, and yet, if one needs to lose weight, this Full Plate Diet is tremendously helpful in reaching that goal.
In addition to giving excellent nutritional guidance, the book is well organized. Early chapters begin with a clear explanation of the Full Plate concept, its benefits, and how to get started. Subsequent chapters go on with clear descriptions and illustrations of the best high fiber foods and delightful recipes. Later chapters give advice about eating at work, at restaurants, and on the road, as well as giving guidance on how to shop at grocery stores. The authors get high marks for presenting excellent health information in such an attractive, easy-to-read book. They have my congratulations!
