9780143116387: Food Rules: An Eater's Manual

In sixty-four bite-sized pieces of advice, Michael Pollan's Food Rules tells you everything you need to know to eat healthily, dine happily and live well.

Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.

Using those seven simple words as his guide, internationally-acclaimed food journalist Michael Pollan offers this indispensable handbook for anyone concerned about health and food. Sensible, easy to use and written in plain English, Food Rules is a set of memorable adages or designed to help you eat real food in reasonable amounts, gathered from a wide variety of sources: nutritionists, anthropologists, ancient cultures - and grandmothers.

Whether at the supermarket, a restaurant or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this handy, pocket-size resource is the perfect manual for anyone who would like to become more mindful of the food we eat.

'In more than four decades I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than these principles'

The New York Times

'Instantly makes redundant all diet books and 99 per cent of discussions around healthy eating ... Sense, at last'
   Daily Mail, praise for In Defence of Food

'Pollan invites us to grab our pots and pans and cook some real food for dinner'
   Time Out, praise for In Defence of Food

'Read this witty book for a healthier life and diet'
   The Times, praise for In Defence of Food

Michael Pollan has been writing for over twenty years about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. The Omnivore's Dilemma, about the ethics and ecology of eating, was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He is also the author of The Botany of Desire, A Place of My Own and Second Nature and, most recently, In Defence of Food.

Whether at the supermarket or an all-you-can-eat buffet, this is the perfect guide for anyone who ever wondered, What should I eat? In the more than four decades that I have been reading and writing about the findings of nutritional science, I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than the 64 principles outlined in a slender, easy-to-digest new book called Food Rules: An Eater s Manual, by Michael Pollan. --Jane Brody, The New York Times The most sensible diet plan ever? We think it s the one that Michael Pollan outlined a few years ago: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. So we re happy that in his little new book, Food Rules, Pollan offers more common-sense rules for eating: 64 of them, in fact, all thought-provoking and some laugh-out-loud funny. -- The Houston Chronicle It doesn t get much easier than this. Each page has a simple rule, sometimes with a short explanation, sometimes without, that promotes Pollan s back-to-the-basics-of-food (and-food-enjoyment) philosophy. -- The Los Angeles Times A useful and funny purse-sized manual that could easily replace all the diet books on your bookshelf. --Tara Parker-Pope, The New York Times Michael Pollan s newest book Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation --the story of our most trusted food expert s culinary education--was published by The Penguin Press in April 2013.
