Warner, Jackie – Here is a great book on how to eat healthy and stay thin without using artificial or processed foods, diet aids, or deprivation techniques, which are all proven not to work. This is not a diet book but actually and simply teaches a person how to eat right and informs them on how the body utilizes certain foods. Parents can incorporate the information gained from this book into their lifestyle and into their kitchens to improve everyone’s health. Page 52 – “Think less medication, more motivation, and think of food and exercise as powerful medicine. Indeed, they’re more powerful than any drug you’ll ever take.”
