Is it possible to eat what you want and remain healthy, happy, and energetic? In The Beginner's Guide to Healthy Eating, Dr. Andrew Weil - America's most trusted natural health physician - teaches the essentials of how to eat for optimum health and pleasure, distilled into one information-packed and easy-to-absorb audio course.

Join Dr. Weil as he helps identify the diet that's best for you, and sets the record straight about fats, carbohydrates, protein, and calories. With him, you will learn how to cook and eat out wisely, explore the secrets of the Japanese and Mediterranean diets, and discover why "experimentation" is central to a healthy diet. At last, here is a clear primer on why your diet is the foundation of good health - and simple instructions to start enjoying every meal as a source of health and pleasure.

General Content: Andrew Weil is one of the foremost experts on nutrition. The Beginner’s Guide to Healthy Eating provides a great start for individuals looking to learn more about how what they eat will affect how they feel. If you’ve studied nutrition in-depth, a lot of what Weil says might be new to you (e.g. think of this book as “Nutrtion 101”). Having said that, I think just about everybody will get something out of this title.

One of things I like best about Weil’s theories on diet is that they seem very sound. He bases a lot of his opinions on study of the traditional Japanese and Mediterranean diets, diets that proven to be very healthy and helped to increase longevity in their adherents. In addition, he doesn’t take an unrealistic view towards nutrition. He doesn’t expect individuals to spend all day in their kitchens or purchase all sorts of expensive and exotic ingredients. Instead, he favors simplicity in diet and food preparation.

The only knock that I would have on this title is that it doesn’t go into depth in a lot of areas. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive view of Weil’s nutritional advice, check out his audiobook Eating Well for Optimum Health. However, if you’re new to the world of nutrition and looking for an introduction to Weil or for a relatively simple and healthy diet to follow, The Beginner’s Guide to Healthy Eating will be perfect for you.

Audio-Specific Content: I listened to the unabridged version of this book on CD (1 CD, 74 minutes). The title was narrated by Dr. Weil himself and the narration was well done. One note of caution on this title. The content within this title is duplicated on Weil’s book Taking Care of Yourself. If you’ve listened to that title, all of the material on this book will be repetitive.
