SUMMARY Ñ HIDEAWAYSTUDIO.CO.UK ✓ By Michael Pollan

Number one New York Times best seller from the author of How to Change Your MindThe Omnivore's Dilemma and Food Rules  Food There's plenty of it around and we all love to eat it So why should anyone need to defend it Because in the so called Western diet food has been replaced by nutrients and common sense by confusion most of what we’re consuming today is longer the product of nature but of food science The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American Paradox The we worry about nutrition the less healthy we seem to become  Wit. Well organized and well written this book covers how we got to where we are buying processed foods labeled with various health claims that are meaningless We find out about the rise of the nutrition industry and how they ve led us astray We ve all heard that fresh less processed is better but the author does an excellent job of explaining why Living in Switzerland decades ago I said half jokingly with no scientific basis in my head that the cheese and chocolate was excellent because of happy cows all roaming the hillsides looking content indeed The author validates my offhand comment and explains the science behind it I ve been buying eggs from pasture grazed hens for the sake of the hens The author tells us that the nutrition content of eggs from grass grazed eggs is vastly different from those of grain fed hens I ve been buying grass fed beef after cringing at the conditions in El Paso and Central California feed lots after driving past again for the cows sake The author explains how the meat from grain fed cows is very different nutritionally from naturally grass grazing cows Interesting how consideration and care for the animals in our food supply chain dovetails with our own health This book is a must read for anyone who believes that what you eat effects your health and wants a simple framework for making better eating choices

    Polan is always a good read. In this one, he offers "rules for eating well" that mostly make a lot of sense. While staying within accepted mainstream science territory for the most part, he occasionally digresses into personal opinio

    The author says, "Eat food, not too much and mostly plants" and offers a quick shortcut to healthy eating, suggesting that you shouldn't eat anything that your great grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.
