Do you struggle with making the right food choices for your diet and your health?
If so, then a new book from a Delta man might provide you with some answers.
The Nutrition Proposition: How much do your food choices really matter written by Dr. James McCormack, a professor of pharmacy at the University of British Columbia since the mid 1980’s, busts a lot of myths and corrects misinformation about the food we eat.
The Nutrition Proposition shows how science tries to figure out if a particular food or diet is healthy and then provides a detailed synopsis of the best available evidence for many of the key areas of nutrition
The book doesn’t tell people what to eat. Rather, chapter after chapter provides information for readers to make dietary choices based on the best available evidence rather than having to try to decipher conflicting nutrition messaging.
“Evaluating medical evidence is my field of expertise. I’ve spent more than 30 years helping thousands of health-care professional s— from physicians to pharmacists to nurses to dieticians to naturopaths to dentists and even the occasional vet— interpret and incorporate the best available evidence for hundreds of medical conditions and thousands of medications,” says McCormack. “With The Nutrition Proposition, I turned my focus and skills to the evidence about what we eat.”
He said his goal of the book was to, as clearly as possible, help the reader interpret, contextualize and understand what the best available evidence says about nutrition. And perhaps more importantly, what it does not say and could likely never say.
“I also wanted to outline for the reader the best evidence we have for many of the foods they know and love,” he added. “Most importantly, I wanted the information in this book to empower the reader. I purposely did not want to tell the reader what to eat. Or what not to eat. This is what I believe makes The Nutrition Proposition unique among books on nutrition.”
He said the book is geared towards anyone who makes decisions about what they eat based on health reasons.
“A lot of people are making nutrition decisions based on health information that is misleading, misinterpreted and in a lot of cases outright BS, so this book is pretty much for anyone who eats and especially for those who believe strongly that a certain food or a specific diet is “the way to go”, he added.
