"The Omega-3 Life Program" is the first book of its kind to explore the mystery of omega-3 fats contained in foods, such as fish, seafood, legumes and leafy green vegetables. In this book, the author, Shamala Ratnesar, explains in simple terms the substantial benefits of changing your eating habits to incorporate these oils and how they can assist us to gain better all-round health. The book covers all you need to know about omega-3 and how to integrate it into your everyday life, including easy-to-follow recipes and suggested menus for people with particular medical conditions. All dietary recommendations are prefaced by a clear explanation of the underlying nutritional concepts and supportive evidence is accompanied by generous helpings of practical advice. The book is also heavily illustrated with colour photos in the recipe section and has an eye-catching design to suit the trade market. There has been a growing public awareness of omega-3 fats as a valuable source of nutrition, but little published about it. As a clinical nutritionist and diabetes dietitian, the author of this pioneering book provides a wealth of experience and professional knowledge that ensures the content's technical accuracy. She wrote the book in response to a demand from her clients and colleagues for an informative, readable, practical guide to omega-3 fats.
