  • Reading list

    So I recently got a nook color, and have this weekend mostly free. I am spending it in the hospital with my boyfriend as he is having surgery. I expect I will have a lot of time to read.

    I'd like your top lists of books. Here is what I have already read;

    Primal Blueprint
    Nourishing Traditions
    Atkins books, years ago
    The paleo solution
    Why we get fat
    Good calories, bad calories

    Also, I don't mind science heavy books or articles at all.

    Let me know what you all think I should add. It can be on nook, or kindle as I have access to both on the nook color.

    Thanks so much!

      That's a good list already. You might want to do a search, as this same topic comes up every month or two.

      In sticking with the theme of what you've already read, I'd include The Perfect Health Diet (excellent read and extremely interesting). Also, the topic of Leptin is causing quite the stir at the moment, so if you're interested on getting up to speed you might like Mastering Leptin (only book I've personally read on the subject so far).

      Actually, if you don't mind a bit of a hijak I'm going to make an additional request of my own:

      Can anyone recommend a good book on Endocrinology? Something they personally have read and found useful? I'm looking for something fairly broad spectrum and up to date (obviously).

          The Unhealthy Truth
          The End of Overeating
          The Vegetarian Myth

          Warning: Some of these have stretches that are very badly edited. Do not throw your Kindle across the room.

            That is a good list.

            I have most of those on ipad.

            I was in the hospital a lot this year and also downloaded a Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook and looked up everything the nurses got near me with.

            "Time for your IV change and shot..."
            "What's in it?"
            "I'm gonna look it up...."

                Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A Price. Good science never gets outdated and this book was written in the 1930's.

                    Your list is pretty good.

                    I would like to add:

                    The Perfect Health Diet
                    Deep Nutrition
                    In Defense of Food
                    Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
                    "If man made it, don't eat it" - Jack Lallane

                    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                      I had forgotten to mention this one, I have read it. Well, browsed really, not read cover to cover, but many sections
