Every day we are bombarded with so much information and misinformation about our diets that we don't know what to think. More and more "quick fixes" are introduced, often contradicting what was said just a year or two ago.
In this book Ann Rosenstein offers the best available information. She is not suggesting a particular diet or kind of exercise. She's simply giving you the information you need to make healthy choices for yourself.
This is just what you need to make sense of what you eat and what you serve your family. Clear, concise, and accurate. What more could you ask for?
"Healthy eating is a way of life! Ann informs, educates, and motivates in Diet Myths Busted. Solid information to empower you to take control of your food choices and better understand how to feed yourself and your family."
Chris Freytag national fitness expert, author, and trainer
"Finally a book that lays out real facts and gives us a way to manage our diet and control our weight."
Dr. Robert P. Miller, MD, Park Nicollet Clinic, Bloomington, MN
"Ann is a true fitness professional who understands diet, nutrition, and fitness. I really love this book!"
