Banyen's Description: 

“A pragmatic, flexible, and well-informed guide to health-supportive eating.... The book considers the dynamics of living systems, the law of opposites, the effects on the body and feelings of different foods, the meaning of cravings, and food as medicine.” —East West Journal

And now the best book on how diet affects health has gotten even better: For this 10th anniversary edition, Annemarie Colbin has updated her classic to include the latest information on new dietary systems, low-fat eating, food combining, and alternative medicine. She argues passionately and persuasively that we must take responsibility for our own health and rely less on modern medicine; and she shows how eating well is the first step toward better health.

Her seven criteria for food selection, briefly stated, are: Whole; Fresh, Natural, Real, Organically Grown; Seasonal; Local; In Harmony with Tradition; Balanced; and Delicious.

Among the many topics treated are:

·    Food and the Law of Opposites

·    The Life Force in Foods (effects of temperature, preservation, cooking)

·    How to Change the Way We Eat

·    Cravings and Binges: What they mean

·    New Definitions of Health and Illness

·    Effects of Food on Sex

“This is the most profound book on nutrition that I have ever read.... For those whose backgrounds are in general nutrition, macrobiotics, herbology, vegetarianism, fruitarianism, homeopathy, iridology, faith healing, reflexology, massage therapy, natural hygiene, and other food and healing systems, Annemarie Colbin has provided an opportunity to make a giant leap forward.... She selects judiciously and comprehensively from each system, correlates aspects of different methods, highlights interrelationships between various approaches—all with thorough documentation and clarity of expression.” —Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.
