Summary of Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? The No-Nonsense Guide to Achieving Optimal Weight and Lifelong Health By Mark Hyman
Most of us get befuddled when it comes to healthy eating. The author's reason for writing this book is because food confuses people and the author wants to guide and assist readers in utilizing food to be healthy instead of illness. Today's paradox is that most of the food we consume has gone through so much tampering and processing that it is not even fit to be called food. We need to comprehend that in addition to being a source of fuel for our bodies, food is also medicine and information that contains power over everything that our mind and body can do. It also links us to our bodies and other people. In simple words, food can govern all aspects of existence. The issue is that the industrial food system has endorsed an overall diet of the kind of food that is devoid of nutrients and full of starch, sugar, herbicides, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals, trans fats, monosodium glutamate (MSG), additives, artificial colors and sweeteners , preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup and heightened allergens. This food has also been processed to a degree that it has become something other than food.
The book will serve as a framework originating from the latest and most efficient science of food to guide its readers, since food can right the wrongs of the world.
