A printable PDF of Food For Health with an interactive table of contents.
Food For Health is a coffee-table book on nutrition and physiology that will inspire healthier nutrition and lifestyle choices in your everyday life. Packed with beautiful illustrations, practical food tables, and the newest science. No matter your reasons for changing your diet - weight loss, health complaints, elimination of cravings, more energy, disease prevention, or a desire to optimize your performance and health - everyone can benefit from knowing these simple foundations about how our bodies work!
As you'll see, this book's basic recommended eating style is low-carb or ketogenic nutrition. Along this journey, you will understand in detail the WHY of this recommendation. Central to the nutrition principles is also a focus on eating natural foods - no processed foods. Nutrient density is key here. And at the end of the day, a simple and natural diet is the most critical factor for sustainable success!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I grew up with a vast curiosity about how the world works, about physics and chemistry - or, more generally, questions about the nature of time, space, and matter. This is why I chose to become a scientist and work in research. It was only later, in my thirties, that I turned this curiosity toward human physiology. At that time, I had started developing metabolic dysfunction myself, and I was encountering people in my immediate environment affected by severe metabolic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. Since I am fundamentally driven by the wish to understand the underlying mechanisms of things to make choices in my personal life that I feel are useful and constructive, I started going deep into the rabbit hole that is nutrition and physiology.
Food For Health is my attempt to make a deeper understanding of our physiology accessible to more people. Most of us find it hard to make optimal nutritional choices in everyday life - and I think that education on the why's is a powerful motivator to work towards that goal.
