Good introduction to nutrition 4 octobre 2012
Par Randy A Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you want to learn about nutrition The Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition is a great place to start. While there is a lot of information on the web and in various magazines about nutrition this book brings together the basics in one easy to understand book. It is written in a question and answer format and covers topics like: defining nutritional terms, understanding nutritional labels, purposes and sources of vitamins and minerals, and common sense approaches to losing weight. The weight loss sections of the book include figuring out what a proper weight should be, contributing factors (both controllable and non-controllable) to obesity, and practical solutions for all ages from toddlers to adults. I particularly liked the advice for evaluating diet claims and the explanations of the different types of fats, carbohydrates, and sugars. I have read quite a lot about nutrition and found this book to be mostly accurate, practical, and in keeping with a Christian viewpoint. It is not so "Christian" as to be offensive to those of a different worldview. Those who have studied nutrition quite a bit won't learn new anything except possibly an easy way to explain things but this book should be useful for everyone else.

Especially since it is marketed as "quick answers for moms on the go" it needs a better index to make answers to specific questions easier to find. Also while I know obesity is more common than eating disorders or being underweight, I wish this book had at least mentioned these two nutrition related subjects.

Overview provides starting point for further research 15 juin 2012
Par Karen Wilber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition is a brief overview of nutritional topics: controlling sugars, what vitamins are essential, weight management, dieting, and helping children with weight problems.

What does this book have to offer that you can't just get off the web? Nutrition is a vast topic so there's quite a bit to wade through and evaluate. Rather than being a complete guide to anything, this book briefly addresses topics that arise when trying to plan meals for families and when trying to evaluate what is/isn't healthy or helpful for raising healthy children. It provides the vocabulary and concepts that are useful for doing deeper research.

I have a basic knowledge of most of the bigger topics in this book (gained from pediatricians, nurses, and reading web and magazine articles). However, I found the discussion on sugars and sugar substitutes useful and I refer back to it often as I navigate the changing nutritional labels on packaged foods (though I tend to avoid sugar substitutes more than the author advises). I also found the history and comparison of different diet trends fascinating (Pritikin, Atkins, Raw Foods). That chapter is useful for evaluating diet claims.

Is this a useful book? Yes. Is this an essential book? Hard to say since this book is poorly indexed and you have to dig through each chapter to look for answers. It is, however, a good overview and would be useful as a starting point for discussing nutrition with your (or your child's) doctor.

Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complementary copy of this book.
Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition 5 juin 2012

This Busy Mom's Guide isn't written by a Mom which for some reason I expected, but it is written to Moms. It is much more than just a cookbook of fast recipes. This book includes nutrition information to help you have a healthier family. Topics covered range from vitamins and minerals to overweight children. Not quite what I originally expected, from the title I assumed it would be tips to get fast but healthy meals on the table. Instead, it is more of a nutritional reference.

A Good First Step On Your Healthier Lifestyle Ladder 29 mai 2012
Par Christina G. Donato - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This helpful book by Paul C. Reisser, M.D. was not just for busy Moms, but also Dads, and for that matter anyone who is looking to become healthier. Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition is a great overview for someone who has become confused by the latest fad diets, best-selling way to lose weight, etc. etc. All of us have heard of Dr. Phil's diet book, the Hollywood diets, injection diets and so many more trends in nutrition. Just turn on Dr. Oz during the week and you will hear as many as five or more ways to lose weight in just one show!

While I do not consider myself a beginner in the area of nutrition and health, I did appreciate several aspects of this book. Chapter One "Nutritional Basics" addressed sugar and how sugar in its various forms affects our bodies. I learned much about what glucose is and how sugar can cause the whole body to become imbalanced. My husband and I quit eating and/or drinking sugar a year ago, and so I really appreciated the author explaining the alternatives to pure sugar. Having kicked the sugar habit, I no longer crave sweets and if I attempt to drink a sip of soda, I get a belly ache. So, I know getting healthier and losing weight can truly begin with cutting sugar out of your diet. For that reason, I applauded the inclusion of the sugar discussion in Chapter One.

While this book heeded the mandate to treat your body as a temple, ( this is the official book of The Focus on the Family Physician's Resource Council, USA) it was not a book only for the Christian market. No doubt, this book would easily be embraced by the secular market.

This book is a gentle approach to a healthier lifestyle. I appreciated the easy way the author summarized raw food diets, Biblical diets, and paleolithic diets. I do adopt many aspects of raw food diets and Biblical diets. I believe a healthy lifestyle begins with balance. God gives us a sound mind to make the best decisions for our health. I have experienced better health as a result of taking ideas from the different buffets of diets. I enjoyed this book because the author did not ditch any of the three but mentioned highlights and low lights of each, thus allowing the reader an intro into each and the opportunity to become a diet Berean.

I had a few criticisms of this book. I understood this book to be an intro to better health and a great place for someone seeking better nutrition. I felt it would be more beneficial if the book were more substantial in length as I feel having a dictionary of sorts or a manual to pull off a shelf as needed would make this book more necessary. Also, the cover led me to believe I may receive recipes as well, thus causing this book to earn a space in my kitchen bookshelf next to my cookbooks. An additional chapter could have included modern new kitchen gadgets with a sampling of easy recipes for these kitchen gadgets addressed to a Mom or Dad on the go.

This 186 page book may be a one time read just because the reader gleans everything in one read and then does not need to refer to it again. Possibly the author did intend this book to be passed along as opposed to shelved and referenced. I just felt the reader reading it and keeping it might cause the reader to be accountable. For me personally, my most important books become dog-eared and highlighted. I also write in notes, in pen for good measure. Those books worthy of my scribbles remain a long time in my library. They become necessary spokes on my good health wheel. I consider these books to be long-time friends. I had hoped that this book could be more of a nutritional primer that would be passed through the generations.

This book I will happily pass along to a friend who is a busy Mom and a person who needs to start at the ground floor to better health. A "been there and done that" dieter who needs a fresh approach - - my friend will no doubt glean much from Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition.

Useful resource! 29 mai 2012

"Busy Mom's Guide to Family Nutrition," written by Paul C. Reisser, MD, is filled with valuable information. Split into six main chapters numerous topics are addressed in this book. Each chapter is then split into sections in a question and answer format making it user-friendly and a handy resource. There are in-depth explanations in regards to nutrients and how much of each food category a person should eat each day. There is also a section on the importance of eating together as a family. While this may not be possible to do each and every day, there are arguments for the importance of this to happen and also tips to help this take place as well. There is also a section on losing weight and questions are answered in regards to how to be successful while doing this while getting all the needed nutrients as well.

When I received this book, it was not exactly what I had expected as I thought it was going to include recipes and meal plans of healthy, nutritious and child-friendly meals. However, when I began to read this I was pleased with the amount of information that is included in the book! This is a great resource for anyone who would like to make better and healthier food choices!
