Required Reading: The Best Nutrition Books

popular_diet_books.jpgI've read quite a few books on diet and nutrition over the years. I figured it was about time I created a "best of" list.

The following are books that I believe stand above the throngs of mediocrity and hype that pervade the "Diet and Health" sections of bookstores.

In no particular order, here are 7 "must-reads" of Nutrition and Diet books.

A true classic in the world of nutrition, this instant classic is an eye-opener to where we've been, where we are, and where things are going when it comes to what we are consuming. A very informative, comprehensive and well-balanced "how to" guide when it comes to navigating your grocery store aisles. It's a big book but finish it and you will be well-armed for grocery store dominance! Tom became an "under the radar" e-book legend with his groundbreaking "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" offering and then followed it up with no-nonsense, evidence based and easy-to follow "Body Fat Solution". A true "total package" book that is destined to be a classic. Yes Mr. Pollan has 2 books in this distinguished list. Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Pollan takes this simple concept and weaves it into another classic with his very engaging diatribe on "nutritionism" and the politics and other factors that impact what we eat. Overeating is a monumental issue in our overindulgent society. Kessler tackles the root of the problem and provides some sound solutions to help overcome it. This book is a very thought-altering reading experience. The Fat Loss Troubleshoot is as comprehensive a manual as you will find on the subject - tackling a myriad of issues that are stand in the way of you and the body and health that you want. It's a matter-of-fact, un-sugar-coated and evidence-based journey with a conversational tone. This book is nothing short of epically complete. A bit overwhelming in terms of the volume of content (I see this e-book as part manual, part encyclopedia) but man alive you get it all here - metabolism, exercise, nutrition, and supplements. It's best digested in bits, but it's an invaluable resource all the same.
