    Reviews of In Defense of Food 

    1. Rating 4.5/5

    This book was extraordinary to me! I saw Pollan’s writing style as keen, clear, and relatable. Furthermore, I can’t disclose to you how often “Eat food. Not all that much. Generally plants.” have gone through my mind in the years since first reading it. I acknowledge how he challenges such an extensive amount what we catch wind of diet – each time scientists think they have the way to nourishment or weight reduction, something new is found to flip it completely around.
    The book helped me investigate my interest in increasingly customary weight control plans made up of unadulterated/entire foods, desert food-like (and gimmicky) items in the stores, and change to cooking and baking without any preparation. In the wake of reading it, I was inspired to purchase a grain plant for my kitchen so I could grind my flour and heat without any preparation using entire grain flour (and composed a beginning manual for help other people do likewise). Being ready to control what goes into my food has improved my wellbeing and vitality. I can’t prescribe this book enough.
    I additionally like the partner book “Food Rules” Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, which I’d prescribe on the off chance that you need a short “simply guide me” book. In any case, for increasingly itemized information that may assist you with changing your food and eating mindset, “In Defense of Food” is the best approach.

    2. Rating 5/5

    “Eat food. Not all that much. For the most part plants.” Michael Pollan’s succinct dietary exhortation is so straightforward it’s insulting, however on account of a combination of awful science and government influence, Americans are more befuddled than any other time in recent memory about how and what to eat. Our progenitors wouldn’t perceive the vast majority of the “food” we eat today, things like refined pasta sustained with omega-3s or diet soft drink spiked with vitamins.
    By refining and processing our food and trying to include the supplements back in, the cutting edge food industry has introduced a group of interminable ailments ranging from malignant growth to coronary illness to type 2 diabetes. Pollan puts forth a compelling defense for doing endlessly with the Western eating routine and just eating foods that your incredible grandma would perceive all things considered. This is, truly, one of the most fascinating books I’ve perused in a drawn-out period. It’s additionally incredibly brief, lucid, and difficult to put down.

    Inside this book:

    Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
    That, more or less, is the short answer to the supposedly incredibly complicated and confusing question of what we humans should eat to be maximally healthy.
    I hate to give the game away right here at the beginning of a whole book devoted to the subject, and I’m tempted to complicate matters in the interest of keeping things going for a couple hundred more pages or so. I’ll try to resist, but will go ahead and add a few more details to flesh out the recommendations.
    Like, eating a little meat isn’t going to kill you, though it might be better approached as a side dish than as a main. And you’re better off eating whole fresh foods rather than processed food products. That’s what I mean by the recommendation to “eat food,” which is not quite as simple as it sounds. For while it used to be that food was all you could eat, today there are thousands of other edible foodlike substances in the supermarket. These novel products of food science often come in packages elaborately festooned with health claims, which brings me to another, somewhat counterintuitive, piece of advice: If you’re concerned about your health, you should probably avoid products that make health claims. Why? Because a health claim on a food product is a strong indication it’s not food, and food is what you want to eat.
