There is a mass amount of information in this book. She introduces an idea of nutrients as proportional, rather than based on servings. The information is based more on philosophy – Eastern views of balance and the energetic properties of food – than scientific nutrition the best part is that Anne gives a great critique of all the major diet plans, and detail on the benefits and downsides of all food groups.

This healthy eating book gives important insights into the causes and treatment of blood sugar imbalances. One thing I particularly appreciated was that in his explanation of the glycemic index, he went on to explain the importance of fiber and that low GI foods aren't the only thing to focus on for blood sugar levels. The biggest section of the book covers diet, with some recipes, and then he goes over supplements, herbs and lifestyle factors for blood sugar balance. An interesting chapter at the end of the book is about syndrome X, which mentions how diabetes is often accompanied by other cardiovascular risk factors like high cholesterol, and a brief look at what you can do to get to a healthy cholesterol and blood pressure level.
