Several Recommended Nutritional Books and Videos

Nutritional theories abound and bookstores have shelves upon shelves of titles that confuse the average buyer.  Especially those people who are overweight may try one “diet” after another in their quest to find an easy way to lose weight and look better.  They want this to be as painless as possible and want to find a diet that allows them to continue their present lifestyle, continue to eat their own forms of junk food, and not need to exercise.

Dieting is not the way to go in one’s effort to lose weight.  It is better to make a way of eating one’s way of life.  It is more sane and sensible to eat a variety of simple, good, healthful, natural, nutritious, and relatively inexpensive foods that will provide adequate nutrients while limiting unwanted and unneeded calories.

The following books may be suggested, not because they are without flaw or because they are easy, but because they do recommend eating simply, nutritiously, and focusing on health rather than merely taste.  Other articles on this website will be provided with more information on how to eat to gain and maintain optimum health.  A basic introduction is found in the article, “Devoting Your Body to God.”
