A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having heard of the Keto method of nutrients and lifestyle, I was intrigued enough to further research the diet. As an interesting and easy to understand book, The Keto Reset Diet definitely answered several of my questions as well as made a case for this manner of sustenance. Though not quite ready to commit, I will try some of the included recipes while I investigate and read further. With lots of information regarding nutrition, metabolism, health, and ingredients, even if the Keto diet is not strictly followed, there are absolutely some healthy ideas and suggestions to incorporate into a healthier lifestyle. A great book to read while deciding if this diet is right for you.

Let Food Be Your Medicine

Colbert M.D., Don. Let Food Be Your Medicine: Dietary Changes Proven To Prevent Or Reverse Disease. Franklin, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2016.

SUMMARY:
letfoodbeyourmedicineBattling his own chronic disease, Dr. Don Colbert persevered until he found a natural way to curb the disease. Sharing his thoughts, discoveries, ideas and faith, in his new book, Let Food Be Your Medicine, the author tackles diets, diseases (cardiovascular, arthritis, cancer, inflammation, Dementia, Autism and mental illness), menus, supplements and gluten, all with solid evidence. Closely relating diet to health, obesity, physical activity, pain, and stress are also discussed. Recipes, menu plans and lifestyle choices round out this well organized book.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
As not only a healthy lifestyle book but also offering encouraging, faith-based, natural alternatives, I found some very interesting concepts on different ways to deal with specific diseases. Personally preferring to naturally heal and prevent diseases before they attack, I thought the suggested changes and choices made sense. Simple items like adding more lemons and limes to the diet (very good in smoothies by the way), eating more fruits and vegetables, eliminating excessive sugar, and limiting the amount of red meat can all have profound affects on health in a very doable manner. Well organized and well written, this will be a book I will keep on my shelf as well as information I will share with family and friends.
