Gourmet Nutrition Volume 2: Learn What, When and How to Eat, Even if Your Have a Busy Life; Plus, the Pictures are Mouth-Watering :)
At the end of 2008, I teamed-up with the Precision Nutrition Network. Dr. John Berardi PhD., designed an eating and nutrition program the likes of which I was attempting to do on my own. You can read more about the program and how I’ve implemented it into my nutrition programs at Optimum Function , click on the following link; Portland, Oregon Nutrition Program at Optimum Function.
How did I learn about Dr. Berardi? Well…. I was looking for a resource that had recipes for good food. These recipes needed to adhere to the nutritional properties that I know to be true from my MS in nutrition work. Enter Gourmet Nutrition Volume 2; this book is BRILLIANT! John Berardi completed his PhD work on subjects like the timing of certain nutrients and how eating certain types of foods at particular times allowed for optimum nutrition, health and also helped improve body composition……you’ll look better.
The problem many of us face is that we often have only one of two choices: eat and be healthy or look better; these components are often (with regards to eating plans, diets etc.) are mutually exclusive. The principles I know to be true are stated accurately and concisely by Michael Pollen in his book In Defense of Food, where he instructs us that the best, most nutritious and healthy way to eat is to eat real food; not processed, boxed or altered food-products. Gourmet Nutrition helps us to make and eat real food. The book is not just a recipe book, it’s a system of eating and supports you in every aspect from organizing your kitchen to organizing how you cook to telling you which meals are best at which time of the day to giving you the nutrient content of each meal.
Often, people don’t want to participate in the “full-meal-deal” which is to go through the 8-week Precision Nutrition program wih face-to-face support and body composition tracking (including fat % and body measurements) at Optimum Function, the next tier down is to purchase the program and go at it on our own utilizing the built-in support system of the Precision Nutrition Website and participant forums etc. You can find more information about this option here.
For those who need even less direction but want more variety in their diet while keeping that variety healthy and delicious; purchasing the Gourmet Nutrition Volume 2 book for $39.99 is THE WAY TO GO. You can do so by clicking here.
Of course, if you have any questions about Gourmet Nutrition, the Precision Nutrition Program or why the latest diet or “fad food” is not the way to achieve optimum health and nutrition, you can email me at info@OptFunction.com or call 503-866-9739.Your in Health, Tim Irving DC, MScan.
