EATING WELL FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH: the essential guide to food, diet, and nutrition
by Andrew Weil, M.D.
pub. Alfred A. Knopf,(C) 2000, 307 pages

Comments: Here's the basics of the Weil Optimum Diet (from page 261): "Variety. Covering all nutritional bases and minimizing the intake of any harmful elements in foods are important. Freshness. The higher the percentage of fresh foods in the diet the better. Unprocessed. The lower the percentage of processed foods in the diet the better. Abundant in fruits and vegetables. The more fruits and vegetables you eat, the more protective phytochemicals you take in." I especially like his balanced, sustainable approach. I'm just at the beginning of living out his notions, so only time will tell. More later.
