Identifies foods and nutritional supplements necessary for men to maintain optimal health during each stage of life, including men with inherited risk of stroke, cancer, or heart disease
Ann Louise Gittleman is a respected writer and nutritionist who provides sensible, practical advice for men seeking to control their weight, enhance their appearance, and achieve overall wellness through the foods they eat. SUPER NUTRITION FOR MEN first addresses the sad state of the typical American diet--loaded with sugar, salt, and hydrogenated fats--and how to reverse its negative effects. Gittleman's approach is from a holistic perspective, emphasizing a long-term, medically proven food plan rather than fad diets and unbalanced meals. She recommends a basic 40-30-30 ratio of carbs, proteins, and fats for the majority of her readers; this, she believes, will meet all nutritional requirements for optimum health and yet not overwork the body with kidney-busting proteins or excessive carbs. The concept is hardly new, but in the context of her illuminating book, this plan is a powerful weapon in battling disease and illness. Gittleman's balanced, nutritionally sound diet can decrease stress, lower blood pressure, and even provide greater mental clarity, in addition to maintaining optimum weight and maximizing health. The concise, easy-to-follow guidelines and meal plans have been specially designed for busy lives. This book is great for regular guys seeking to take control of their diet.
