A practical guide to eating healthy by Michael Pollan, a UC-Berkeley professor of journalism, food activist, and author of In Defense of Food and The Omnivore's Dilemma.
The book is divided into three parts that reflect Michael Pollan's core philosophy: Eat Food. Mostly Plants. Not too much. What follows are a total of 64 "rules," what he describes more loosely as "personal policies" to help make food decisions easier and more intuitive. His recommendations cut through the confusion around the ever-changing health claims about the nutritional content of our food and bring it back to the basics.
The lessons he shares are drawn equally from traditional food cultures, professionals in health and social sciences, from his readers, and from audiences at his speaking engagements. The language is very straightforward and easy to understand. He even integrates some old adages that you may recognize as "words of wisdom" from your grandparents!
We appreciate how Michael Pollan sets the framework for a good anti-inflammatory diet for overall health, which naturally has an impact on sexual health and wellness. This book does not contain recipes, so it's best used as a basic resource to help guide your food decisions. For a few more specific diet changes you can try that have a great impact on overall health, see The Good Sex Diet.
