What to Eat by Marion Nestle (2006)
I read selected chapters of this book. There is quite a bit of good information in here. This is not a "food fad" book. Marion Nestle seems to be fairy traditional about what is good for you and what is bad for you (in other words, stay on a low fat diet, but I know there's been recent research on that topic that states otherwise). There is so much conflicting information about food out there in books and on the web. I've been trying to navigate my way around all of this information so I can make reasonable choices as to what I eat.
Personally, I think eggs are good for you and eat a lot more of them than she recommends. But I did like the chapter on eggs.
Looking at some of the other reviews, I realize that since I only read chapters on the topics that interested me (eggs, oils, etc.) I totally missed the political aspect of her book. So I can't comment on that, but now I'm thinking I should go skim this book again and see what got some people riled up.
Author takes more of a consumer-oriented approach than a purely nutritional or dietetic approach.
Absolutely love it! It reinforces and goes into wonderful depth that [b:In Defense of Food|315425|In Defense of Food An Eater's Manifesto|Michael Pollan|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1203535494s/315425.jpg|3100234] goes into. It's made me totally rethink how I'm eating. I love it!
I learned that Doritos are the devil's plaything. :)

From publisher description: With What to Eat, this renowned nutritionist takes us on a guided tour of the supermarket, explaining the issues with verve and wit as well as a scientist's expertise and a food lover's experience. Today's supermarket is ground zero for the food industry, a place where the giants of agribusiness compete for sales with profits, not nutrition or health, in mind. Nestle walks us through the supermarket, section by section: produce, dairy, meat, fish, packaged foods, breads, juices, bottled waters, and more. Along the way, she untangles the issues, decodes the labels, clarifies the health claims, and debunks the sales hype. She tells us how to make sensible choices based on freshness, taste, nutrition, health, effects on the environment, and, of course, price. With Nestle as our guide, we learn what it takes to make wise food choices and are inspired to act with confidence on that knowledge. What to Eat is the guide to healthy eating today: comprehensive, provocative, revealing, rich in common sense, informative, and a pleasure to read.
