    Enjoyed this; most of it made good sense to me. The reminder that the grain and corn we eat today is very different (thanks to Round-up and GMOs) from the grain our grandparents ate helps me realize how much the food world has changed. I know I won't follow Dr. Hyman's recommendatio...

    If you?re someone who wants the WHY behind your nutrition choices - this is the book for you. Dr. Hyman breaks down the science, the research and the business behind what we eat and what?s being sold to us - to help give you a clear picture of what you want to eat to be your health...

    Contrary to the author's assertion, this is not an impartial and rational approach to food and eating. His all-or-nothing approach contributes to the escalating eating disorder problem. I was disappointed and appalled when the author recommended a "detox" program in the last part of th...

    Interesting read! Well-researched and well-written, in an easy-to-understand format. However, I do want to caution that the information Hyman presents is as of right now, and I emphasize RIGHT NOW! Nutrition is a science and science is forever changing! Having said this, Hyman t...

    About a month ago I read Gary Taubes new book called ?The Case Against Sugar?...in where he exposes the facade we have been lead to believe about Sugar. Carbohydrates were increasing - diabetes was increasing- while we went through a the anti-fat period. Sugar-pushing companies wer...

    This book definitely made an impact. It remains to be seen what effect it will have, if any. Hence, the no-rating. In a nutshell: Beans: not as great for you as we?ve been led to believe; dairy: quite harmful; carbs: not needed. Beef/eggs: necessary. Organic, good quality products...

    If you are confused by all the conflicting information about food and what we should eat, then read this. I heard Dr. Hyman on a podcast and decided to read this book and I am so glad I did. He has done an insane amount of research and his advice and guidelines make total sense. The go...

    Food What the Heck Should I Eat opens with an easy challenge to help readers learn how much they know about food. What I learned 1. Pepsi has learned how to grow and harvest human taste buds in the lab. 2. The sugar industry drives our obesity epidemic. 3. We eat Frankenfoods: ...

    This is one of the most comprehensive and well-researched books on nutrition that I have come across. The author broke each section into food groups making it easy to read and understand. It also allowed me to jump ahead or return to certain sections. It amazes me how much misinformati...

    I appreciated how this book broke down various types of foods by chapter. Hyman shared the good, bad and the ugly about the food business and the nutrients your body needs. This is certainly a book I will purchase. ...

    Already being a fairly healthy eater, I'm not sure what I expected from this book . But I know I didn't expect to come away feeling that nothing is safe to eat! Unless I have access to only grass fed lamb and beef, chickens that run happily around on the farm all day and produce that...

    I was fortunate to receive a free copy of this book. I have followed Dr. Hyman's PBS programs in the past and I like his basics for healthy eating. I read the book and enjoyed it. It is very easy to follow.He lays out the simple basics of healthy eating,just eat nature made foods,not m...

    What sets this book apart from other books about food is its global perspective: Dr. Hyman describes the environmental impact of each food category he discusses, generally arriving at the conclusion that foods that nourish us best also nourish our spirits and our entire planet. He has ...

    This book was recommended to me by a friend who knows what it is like to struggle with intestinal issues and never quite know which food is the culprit. There is a tremendous amount of scientific research that Dr. Hyman has collected regarding which foods we can eat to help us become h...

    Good for those that believe in removing sugar and processed foods from their diet but don't want or believe in eliminating entire food groups, this book provides good information on the best choices from an health, economic and environmental consideration. ...

    This book contains fairly clear explanations of the types of food we should include in our diets. It's a pretty common sense approach espousing whole real foods. I like that he doesn't exclude whole categories - like dairy or wheat -but explains why one should limit them - and which va...

    A very disappointing book, I ended up more confused than ever about the healthy diet. The author keeps reminding us that we are supposed to eat like our ancestors, the hunter gatherers before the invention of the great evil the agriculture. Yet we are not living that lifestyle anymore,...

    I really enjoyed the complete description of the differences between organic, pasture, grass fed, etc. for the different kinds of meat, etc. I am going to have to go back through a second time to completely absorb it all. LOTS of information and explanation for why it is or isn't good ...

    I like the way the book is written: things you should know, what experts got right/got wrong, what are the good foods in a category, which are not so good. My biggest issue is the stress on meat, and no bread/potatoes, etc. I don?t think most people can live on a diet like this for a...

    Great book As someone with autoimmune disease I have looked at both paleo and vegan diets as a way of trying to heal. This book combines the best of both (he calls it Pegan) and encourages us to have a whole food diet free of rubbish. It was really informative, easy to read and backe...

    The answer to the title question is apparently - nothing you can buy! If you don't make it yourself from produce you've grown your self, fish you've caught in the wild, or chickens or cows you've raised on grass then you probably shouldn't eat it.... that's how bad our food supply has ...

    This book was awesome! I love how it was set up and how it tackled ethical and sustainable issues with each food in addition to health benefits and pitfalls. It is backed by research, explained in a way that does not require you to have an extensive medical background, leaves the reade...

    "The choice of nutritional philosophies is endless these days: we can go vegan; vegetarian; ketogenic; Paleo; fleixarian; pescatarian; Mediterranean; high-fat low-carb; high-carb low-fat; raw; and on and on. Trying to find the best one can be overwhelming." (page 288 Food by Mark Hyman...

    This is an exceptional book. Everything you want to know about food, our Food Industry, the way food is grown, the things we should become aware of that may be harming us, even though the label may say "all natural" and other names disguising a food product as healthy. Dr. Hyman breaks...

    I deeply respect Mark Hyman and have been wanting to read his books for quite a while. So when this book came out, I quickly purchased it. Mark Hyman, MD, is the director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. He believes we should get to the root of the problem and no...
