Separating fact from fiction, examines the relationship between food and health, while drawing on health and scientific research to examine such topics as calories, additives, preservatives, eating disorders, illnesses, and fertility.

Publishers Description
A groundbreaking book that separates fact from fiction in the ever-changing world of food and health, with a foreword by Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Not a week passes without one food-related issue or another making the headlines. We worry about additives, preservatives, eating disorders, hygiene, heart disease, cancer, and calories (just to name a few), so it's little wonder that we are utterly confused!  In an attempt to make sense of the bewildering and often contradictory information on what to eat and why, the Discovery Health Channel® will debut The Truth About Food in September 2007. This major five-part series is hosted by Dr. Mehmet Oz, the bestselling author of YOU: The Owner's Manual. This companion book to the series synthesizes years of research and groundbreaking experiments by leading research centers, hospitals, and doctors, carried out especially for the series. This is the first book to finally assemble some of the most important findings and then put them through rigorous testing.
Can calcium help you absorb fewer calories? Are there foods that increase male fertility?Are tomatoes are nature's sunscreen?  
The Truth About Food is arranged into six main sections:
1) How to Stay Young and Beautiful
2) How to Be Sexy and Fertile
3) How to Look Good and Stay Slim
4) How to Perform at Your Peak
5) How to Stay Healthy
6) How to Raise Healthy Kids
User-friendly and engaging, The Truth About Food features over 60 illustrations, clear explanations of scientific terms, helpful tips, chapter summaries, and much more. This is the one food book you won't want to be without!

There are better books out there!  Nov 5, 2008
Trendy conclusions and really rinky-dink experiments. The book went to press before some of the results of the experiments were complete! How weird is that? I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone serious about improving their health. There are many books that are much better.
The truth about food  May 17, 2008
This is a fantastic book. Not merely a laundry list of good for you food. It tells you why and makes it very interesting.
The Truth About Food -- I love this book!  Mar 28, 2008
This book was made into a Discovery Health 6-part series narrated by Mehmet Oz. I only caught two hours of it. It piqued my interest and when I saw there was a book, I had to have it. Even though I don't work as a scientist, I think like one. I have a biology degree from college and I don't just take someone's word on something -- I have to have actual, tangible, written-down proof. The thing I love about this book is the fact that they did actual experiments with "control" groups and groups of human "guinea pigs". They don't just throw information at you; they provide you with the real proof behind the information as well. It's a good read with a lot of great info!
A useful resource attractively published  Nov 24, 2007
This book is the reader's version of a 6-part TV special on, I believe, the Discovery Channel, each part of the volume reflecting the content of one of those 6 shows. In Jill Fullerton-Smith's words, the book (page 8) "reveals the real science of food using the latest research from leaders in the field of nutrition, alongside original and sometimes groundbreaking experiments that we carried out especially for the series."

The content of the book begins, appropriately enough, with a quick tour of the digestive system. Part I is termed "How to be healthy." Among other topics, it briefly notes the so-called "Evo" or "cave man diet." One nice feature of this book is the boxed material that pithily sums up major points. Page 26 points out the value of a "rainbow diet" (using fruits and vegetables of different colors, as laid out in a table), reducing saturated fat intake, choosing oils rich in monounsaturated fats, selecting unrefined grains, and watching salt intake. Commonly understood, of course, but still useful advice. Key food for the "evo diet": nuts, fruits and vegetables (as per the table just mentioned), and fish. Also important in diet is fiber. Page 39 summarizes top tips. Another representation from Part I is "detox" regimes, foods that help remove toxins from one's system (e.g., stay away from salt, sugar, red meat, soft drinks, etc. and make sure to eat nuts, fruits, and vegetables). Finally, broccoli as a wonder food.

Other parts to the book focus on "How to be slim," "How to feed the kids," "How to be sexy," "How to be the best," and "How to stay young and beautiful." Just a quick example of suggestions from other chapters. How to stay young and beautiful? Eat lots of fruits, berries, and vegetables to keep your brain young; moderate intake of red wine reduces the odds of heart disease; eating tomatoes (and their kin) can help keep skin "younger"; spinach actually appears to help eyesight.

The book concludes with a useful glossary of terms. The book is well written and provides lots of sensible advice. A lot of the suggestions are widely known already (e.g., the value of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables), but the book packages such knowledge nicely and reports results of interesting mini-experiments that illustrate the points being made. Worthwhile for those interested in enhancing the quality of their diet.
Very clear presentation of material  Nov 13, 2007
The book "The Truth about Food" is the book presenting the material that could be seen on the TV-series of the same name that was run by the BBC. While the series was mildly funny and informative to some degree, it was "reality TV" with hidden camera's monitoring children's and adults' eating patterns. OK, I don't like reality TV and will now review the book.

Many of us have found ourselves in this situation. You want to live longer, improve your fitness level, improve in your particular sport or want more energy. Changing your diet is often the first step. But where to begin? The girl in the Vitamin Store tells you one thing. The guy in the Reform Food Shop tells you something else. And then there's the instructor in the gym with another opinion. It is a confusing situation and probably always will be, given the fact that new discoveries about food are made every month.

"The Truth About Food" is the ideal start for anyone that would like to change his/her life for the better by adjusting the way he/she eats. The presentation of material is extremely clear. Moreover, they put everything they claim to the (scientific) test. The layout of the books is excellent with important fact in boxes and nice illustrations throughout. Many myths about food fell apart before my eyes while reading the book. The book contains information that can enhance your love life, your sports life, your appearance and the health of your children. No problem if you've missed out on the series, all the information is contained in the book.

Some issues were left out that I would like to have seen addressed: What's the deal with Green Tea? Is milk good or bad for you? What about food supplements? But all in all this is without a doubt one of the best books about food out there. Buy it, read it, use it, and it will change your life.
