"John taught me how to cook and how to make healthy food taste terrific. Get this book and he'll share that brilliant wisdom and practical advice with you. Your body and your taste buds will thank you for it."

. "Dr. La Puma brings to your table a rare combination of medical experience and culinary skills. Anyone's health and meals will both benefit by reading this book.". "Through the culinary wizardry of Dr. John La Puma, not even your taste buds will know that you're eating 'good for you' food. You can live well--and long--with his guidance.". "Every one of us has an internal doctor, a natural inner leader, that can keep us healthy. Dr. La Puma teaches you how to eat the right food so your inner doctor can do its work. Learn how to eat well and feel well at the same time. ". "John La Puma has a way of bringing the science and pleasures that should come from healthy eating together on the same plate. As a fascinating blend of both chef and physician, his passion and talent come through with practical and enticing tips on how to shop, cook, and eat. In this engaging book, he shows us that healthy food can be both good for you and bring delicious pleasure to our lives.". HTML:

What Dr. Andrew Weil is to herbal medicine and Dr. Phil is to TV psychology, Dr. John La Puma is to culinary medicine. At thirty-five, after eating too much of the Standard American Diet (SAD, isn't it?), Dr. La Puma had become SADly paunchy. So he decided to research the science of nutrition while also going to culinary school to learn to cook. He created the revolutionary new concept of "culinary medicine"--recipes, foods, and meals that prevent or control common health conditions without sacrificing restaurant-quality taste.

Now you can use culinary medicine too. In ChefMD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine, you'll learn to stock the medicine chest in your kitchen, use the doctor inside of you, and create dishes that give you lifesaving benefits and truly dazzling flavor.

Dr. La Puma serves up a step-by-step eight-week plan to motivate you and help you change your life. Try Saffron Scallop, Shrimp, and Chickpea Paella. Or Sicilian Pasta with Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, and Basil. Or Spicy and Rich Sausage and Kidney Bean Chili.

Anyone who loves food, wants to have more energy, wants to reverse his or her family health history, or wants to know what to eat to get and stay healthy should read this book. Its recipes, meals, and menus can work within minutes of eating them.

Experience food you can't wait to make, and grab the energy and good health to reclaim your life.

Although I don't agree with all of his recommendations (there's a lot of controversy around soy, for instance) I appreciate his suggestions for foods to eat fand avoid or various medical conditions. I've read a lot of nutrition books, but the information on resistant starch was new to me. I've tried a few of the recipes and they are good. ( )
