The Other Four Gospels of Nutrition

A little while ago I blogged The Four Gospels of Nutrition, according to me. Now I bring you The Other Four Gospels of Nutrition. Perhaps if these were the only eight books on nutrition available to humanity, the world would be a happier, healthier, less argumentative and misleading place. 

Schwarzbein Principle
by Diana Schwarzbein

Low carb, nutrient dense diet. Focusses on metabolic healing concept. The nutritional program consists of two phases -Healing and Maintenance - which are easy to adopt into any lifestyle. Instead of shunning fat, the program advocates eating all of the good fats and proteins your body needs as well as an unlimited portion of non-starchy carbohydrates.

The Diet Cure
by Julia Ross

Therapeutic approach maintaining that addressing metabolic imbalances is key to nutritional health. Ross delivers a systematic overhaul of appetite chemistry, illustrating eight key physical imbalances implicated in particular health problems and get an idea of how to use the book to correct them.

Prescription for Nutritional Healing, by Phyllis A. Balch

This has long been America's bestselling book on natural health, with nearly 6 million copies in print, and a 4th edition. Presents a comprehensive treatment of nutritional supplements and dietary approaches to banish illness.

Nourishing Wisdom
by Marc David

Smallest of the four books, but largest in scope. From a mind- body paradigm, discusses food neurosis and the current malady in the west of believing food is just fuel to be shoveled into the body. Explores the social, cultural, health and spiritual aspects of eating, and how to cultivate a healthful attitude to food.
