Disease-Proof: The Remarkable Truth About What Makes Us Well by David L. Katz
Not a lot of new information in this book and not really "remarkable", but it does contain some sound advice. The author of this book helped to come up with the NuVal food nutrition value rating system that is used in some grocery stores and is partially listed in the back of the book. The book has a nice chart of Ten Rules of External Discipline for Healthy Living which I like. There are a few recipes that do not impress me, and it explains what some of the claims on food labels mean - like, "All Natural" does not mean anything - it is just put on the label to make the food sound healthy. I personally think if a food product has to label itself as "natural" or "healthy", it probably is not. So, basically, eat healthy and exercise.
