If you've seen (and loved) the Hungry for Change documentary, then this book will be right up your nutritional alley. And, if you haven't yet seen the documentary or read the book, then you're in for some healthy treats.
The book does a great job in highlighting the key messages of the documentary: how our modern foods ("foods" is more like it) are at odds with the biological programing and preferences of our bodies, why diets don't work, and how we can take our health back into our own hands through eating the simple foods our bodies know best.
The philosophy of the Hungry for Change approach revolves around these top 10 nutritional tips (pp. 44-48):
1. Eat as nature intended
2. Chose organic
3. Dust off your juicer or blender
4. Limit gluten-containing grains
5. Stay away from processed sugary foods
6. Eat good fats
7. Prepare your meals with care
8. Start with a green salad
9. Read labels
10. Eat in a relaxed state
In addition to explaining these essentials for healthy eating, the book offers over 100 easy and healthy recipes, as well as a plan for how to use them to jumpstart your journey towards real and healing foods. Sprinkled throughout the book are interviews with leaders in the field of medicine and health, including Kris Carr, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Joseph Mercola, David Wolfe, and Daniel Vitalis.
Whether you're already a nutrition nerd or are just learning how to feed your body right, _Hungry for Change_ is a nutritionally dense, easily digestible, and satisfying read.
