The All-inclusive “Go-To” Guide That Answers All Your Nutrition and Health Questions in a Practical, No-Nonsense Way
To many Americans, the idea of eating healthfully seems intangible, daunting, overwhelming, confusing or just too difficult and time-consuming to integrate into already overscheduled, stressful lives.
At the same time, most want to look and feel their best, have more energy, and prevent debilitating and costly diet-related diseases. With too much on their plates and too little time, Americans often put improving eating habits low on the priority list.
“Nutrition at Your Fingertips,” the latest book by leading national nutrition expert Elisa Zied, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., comes to the rescue with the consummate nutrition guide that takes the guesswork out of what to eat to be healthier.
