    Whats the best book on Nutrition available?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi everyone

    Bit of Christmas list help here! Thanks to this forum and Paleo in general etc I've gotten very into nutrition etc
    As Christmas is coming up it's christmas list time!

    I want to ask for a book on nutrition (does it get more exciting than that! lol) so I was wondering if anyone knew what was the best book on nutrition.

    I guess I'm a layman - I don't think a journal or science study or expensive academic book would suit me (even if they are "best"). I'm looking for a readily available book that is clear, concise, correct!

    Thanks in advance

    Nutrition in what context? Your best bet would be buying an academic nutritional book but that makes for dry reading.

    Well since you joined MDA it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to read Primal Blueprint for starters.

    Hi guys - thanks for responses so far

    Paleo0731 - it's already on my Xmas list ;-)

    I'm looking for nutritional help in how it links to health, weight loss, fitness etc. Basically I'm reading and listening to a lot about the above (mostly from the Paleo side of things) and there is a lot that they talk about that I don't know of (or understand) and sometimes I do understand but want to know more - be able to see if I can expand on what they say etc

    AMonkey - you're probably right, but thats why I'm asking on here in case people know of a good book for laymen or an intro to the subject etc

    I will recommend Well Fed and Against All Grain for cookbooks.

    "Deep nutrition" was pretty good on how our different body systems related to food. Gets mixed reviews in the paleo group but I thought it was pretty good.

    After you have read Sisson and Wolf's books (I like these two the best) I'm gonna recommend "Deep Nutrition" and "Wild Fermentation", but if you wanna geek on the fermentation stuff a bit rather than just learning some easy recipe "The Art of Fermentation" is better.

    Practical Paleo is a beautiful book worthy as a gift. It's huge, it's full of colorful illustrations, almost every page is laid out like a poster. Plus it's got a lot of good information.

    I'll second Deep Nutrition. The whole first half really gives you some food for thought. How will my eating habits effect, not only myself, but my children, grandchildren, and so forth.
    No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
