Reader's Digest, Sydney, NSW, Australia, 1993. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 544 pages. Indexed. Illustrated throughout with photographs (including electron micrograph!), in colour, as well as some colour drawings. Tables charts etc. Photographic end pages. Dark blue place marker ribbon. The book has no damage. The book has a colour tab system to make things easy to find. It considers food and the body, how to lead for good health, special diets for special needs, buying and cooking wisely, and fitness and exercise. It is written for an Australian audience, and all of the contributors and consultants are Australian-based. The Australian and New Zealand health authorities also advocate the promotion of exercise as an important adjunct of dietary modification. These are the type of guidelines, which, when fully implemented, can help reduce growing number of people who are prime candidates for heart and artery problems. But government recommendations alone cannot make a difference. We have to act for ourselves -- by deciding, here and now, to change attitudes about what we eat and the way we live. And in a world of confusing -- and often conflicting -- information about food and health, a source of accurate information is obviously needed. This book presents that information -- the most recent facts about nutrition and fitness today -- in this one easy to read volume. (From the front fold over blurb). (Bookseller's comment -- the book does not appear to be advocating vegetarianism, which has been a trend with some of the weight loss gurus of recent times.) Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
