Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692612726, Paperback)

This is a factual guide-book, aimed at providing readers with information to direct their own diet style change so they can discover the benefits of eating healthful plant based food.

Readers are provided with knowledge concerning the health benefits of plant based diets, and the health impacts of poor diet choices.  Information is presented on the molecular nature of human digestion, appetite, and energy metabolism, and the application of the nutrient density concept to profile or rate foods.  Guidance is furnished on avoiding or limiting harmful substances in foods, food products, additives, and nutritional supplements, and readers learn the key attributes and nourishing characteristics of healthful foods.

Armed with that knowledge, readers can select or create a healthful, plant based diet style that allows them to meet their needs and tastes, attain their personal goals, and enjoy a diet style which they can expect to faithfully follow.  

Finally, the readers may adapt  for  their use one or more of the published food pyramids or craft their  own food pyramid, augmented with published values for the nutrient density of selected foods, to formulate a shopping list for staples to store their refrigerator, freezer, and pantry, and for use in planning meals.  With that information and knowledge base readers are equipped to prepare and enjoy healthful, plant based meals or select healthful prepared meals at restaurants or from other sources.
