Be Your Own Nutritionist Summary

Be Your Own Nutritionist: Rethink Your Relationship with Food by George Cooper

A radical new approach to healthy eating...Bombarded by fad diets and scary slogans telling you how to eat healthily and lose weight? Confused as to which of the hundreds of diet books out there is telling the truth? Be Your Own Nutritionist has the answers. Forget low-carb diets, superfoods, your five-a-day - there are no hard and fast rules about what to eat, when. A healthy diet varies from person to person and, most importantly, from place to place. This is an exciting new take on nutrition - showing how factors such as climate, time, environment and emotional wellbeing should all affect the way we eat. Combining age-old traditions of healthy eating (did you know that the mid-Victorians had the best diet of any Britons before or since?) with modern scientific research, clinician George Cooper shows you how to ignore the fads and eat right for yourself. He explains in clear, easy terms exactly how your digestive system works (and why you need to know). He explains why raw food is sometimes bad for you; and how hot, spicy foods can mitigate against damp and cold. Packed with easily-adaptable recipes and useful tips, this book is your indispensible guide to eating well, wherever you are.

About George Cooper

George Cooper studied biological sciences at Oxford and during his studies developed a severe digestive illness. After experiencing no benefit from conventional approaches to this illness, he looked increasingly to Chinese medical techniques, and then embarked on a long training in traditional Chinese medicine at universities in the U.K., China and Australia. He now lives in Somerset and runs a busy clinic in Bristol offering acupuncture, herbs and nutritional advice. He also teaches regularly at the University of Bristol Medical School and the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
