Use It at Home: Dr. Andrew Weil's Guide to Eating Well DVD

Use It at Home: Dr. Andrew Weil's Guide to Eating Well DVD

Soy is good for you. No soy is bad for you. OK, a little bit of soy is good for you, but don't overdo it. Ahhhh... We are constantly getting conflicting statements from experts about what we should eat and what we should avoid. I don't know about you, but I just don't know what to believe anymore.

Dr. Andrew Weil through his DVD Guide to Eating Well is here to help. He says nutritional experts really do agree on the optimum diet for long life. He describes that perfect diet, how to shop for high quality foods, and how to be a smart label reader. He also gives you some valuable tips on how to eat right when you eat out (like ordering one dessert for the table to share - not one dessert for each person).

You'll also get an overview of the basics of nutrition, so if you're confused about which foods are good for you, how much you should be eating of them, and why they're good for you in the first place, this DVD will help to clear up your questions.

I was happy to hear that much of Dr. Weil's info is what FitSugar preaches already. He focuses on eating foods with wholesome ingredients (that you can pronounce), and steering clear of processed foods and anything with hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. He's also into eating a varied diet filled with lots of fruits and veggies, and limited foods that are high in saturated fat. I'm glad he talked about enjoyment over deprivation. You can still eat the foods you love, but moderation is key. This is the kind of DVD you learn from, and pass on to your friends and family. Order it from Acacia for $14.99.

OMG, he is great. I have every CD audiobook he's ever published. One I highly recommend is his "Optimum Health" series -- particularly the "8 Weeks to Optimum Health". Covers everything - mind-body, nutrition, exercise, journaling, stress reduction, supplements, herbs ... good stuff.
