Review: The 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth by Dr. Jonny Bowden

Not another drab food book, Bowden highlights the very best

Eat this food, it’ll make you healthy. Oh, wait a minute, that was yesterday’s news. Actually, make sure you DON’T eat this food because it’s not as good for you as we previously thought. Don’t worry because we may change our minds again tomorrow, though, so keep checking back!

Do you find your head spinning round and round at all the relentless health claims you hear bantered about in the news just about every single day? Who among us has the time to keep up with it all? Do we really care?

While the information that comes out about the latest research on the various foods we eat can sometimes be humorous in its perplexing contradictions, the sincere desire by most people to eat right for the sake of maintaining their weight and health is certainly no laughing matter to them.

Especially for those tens of millions of Americans who suffer from health threats such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, among other things, getting the right information about what to eat could very well mean the difference between living a few years longer or dying a tragic premature death.

This is a sobering thought that should be seriously examined by all those who are in charge of providing health information in America. Enough with all the hyperbolic innuendo every time a new study about the healthy benefits of a new food comes out!

All we want is to be told the truth about what foods are genuinely good for us, not constantly spoon-fed more of the same old mumbo jumbo garbage science we often hear from the plethora of company-financed studies from those who have a vested interest in a specific outcome. There’s a reason why they pour millions of dollars into this supposedly impartial undertakings–profits at the hands of the public’s ignorance!

Can’t somebody (ANYBODY!) just come up with an unbiased and reliable resource for solid nutritional information that the average person can use to determine what they should be eating for optimum health with no pretenses, just the unadulterated truth?!

Well, that resource is finally here thanks to weight loss coach and nutrition expert Dr. Jonny Bowden who has penned his most brilliant worked to date entitled The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What You Should Eat and Why.

While the title may fool many people into believing this is just one big yawner of an encyclopedia-type book about food, don’t be disillusioned because it is so much more than that. Bowden writes with such a personal flair for what he does borne out of his sincere passion for healthy living that he even makes discussing complex nutritional terms like flavanoids, antioxidants, and phytochemicals sound cool.
