In this fourth book of The Now What? Fitness Series, certified personal fitness trainer Linda Burke delves into nutrition for total fitness.
"The Media often leaves you confused, ill-informed, or even worse: completely scammed or lied to with offers of quick fixes, magic potions, or crazy contraptions promising unrealistic results," cautions Burke. "With obesity rates higher than they’ve ever been, and aging baby-boomers growing more concerned than ever with their health, it's high time someone shed some light on this very convoluted subject."
Defining a sensible nutrition plan and explaining why it is so important in a concise and simplified manner makes for a book that helps the reader truly comprehend the significance of proper nutrition. Burke goes on to explain the proper percentage of macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats), daily caloric needs, portion control, how to read food labels, including sample meal plans and great healthy snack ideas. Perhaps the best part of the book is how she blows the lid off the secrets many unscrupulous manufacturers use to dupe unassuming consumers with sneakily written food labels.
This book breaks eating sensibly down into comprehensible concepts including priceless and practical tips, giving anybody who truly wants to change their health and their lives in profound ways the tools and knowledge to do so.
So You Want To Eat Right...Now What? gives you essential information and step-by-step guidance so that you can structure the nutrition component of your fitness plan in a way that will deliver permanent results for a healthier, happier life no matter what your age or fitness level.
