From the bestselling author of Strong Women, Strong Bones comes the straight story on nutrition for women. Nutrition is surrounded by controversy and misconceptions, many of them fueled by diets where weight loss-usually temporary weight loss-is the only goal. Strong Women Eat Well tells women everything they need to know to make the right decisions about eating. Readers will discover: * easy-to-follow strategies * why high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are ineffective * how to decipher "Nutrition Facts" labels; * the formula for determining how much protein is needed; * advice on whether to buy organic; * what "fat-free" really means on a label; * the latest word on genetically engineered foods; * information on dietary supplements; and * 50-plus delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes. Dr. Miriam Nelson's previous books have won her more than a million readers-women who want to enhance their health by improving their nutrition. Now, this trusted authority has written a guide explaining how nutrition can work for them and their families-on a daily basis, for the rest of their lives.

This is an interesting book with a lot of research behind it and good recipes. Most of the recipes are not vegan. In the end, there are useful charts about the fibre content of different foods and what foods contain the most important vitamins and minerals with helpful advice in the columns. The charts also include what common myths are about nutrition. I learned a lot from this book.
