I have a friend in my ward named Susan. She has a Masters Degree in Nutrition. I love to chat with her, get her opinions and etc. She's a great cook and I know that she feeds her family excellently.
Well... she was looking for a book to read and I asked her to read Eat to Live. I wanted to know whether the science he sites is sound, and if he was accurately representing the research.
She felt like he was using good studies, and that he did not make any claims beyond what the research/science supports (which she HAS seen people do in other books). She approved! In fact, she was actually disappointed. She thought based on how I described the book to her that it was going to be really extreme and radical-- but in her opinion it wasn't. Isn't that nice to hear? SO many people find the way we are trying to eat as extreme!
She's someone whose opinion on food matters to me, and I just thought I would share her validating opinion with you too :)
Hope your week is off to a good start!
