If you only have 30 seconds, there is time - using this book - to bone up on how to eat well. We're served a daily diet of food facts, fads and often far-fetched claims for what we put on our plates, which makes it difficult to distinguish healthy from harmful. With obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other life-threatening conditions rapidly rising, it pays to understand that we are very much what we eat and that good food - in the right proportions and portion sizes - is essential for our health and well-being. Strip away the flab with this accessible, jargon-free, guide to good nutrition served up in manageable bites. From fasting to fats, enzymes to E-numbers, if you have an appetite for expert advice on real food, this is the perfect book to dip into.
