I have written this book, because in order for a person to eat healthy and live in health, they need to be educated about how to eat healthy and how the body functions and operates with proper and balanced nutrition. It is evident that the countless "diet" books out there today are not educating the person, but only confusing the person more about nutrition. Thus, the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and the myriad of other health problems.
