Book Review: The Dorito Effect

Much of The Dorito Effect is based on the premise that technology has improved agriculture in many ways, such as increasing crop yields and producing bigger livestock, but has simultaneously resulted in decreased flavor in food.

Book Review: What Are You Hungry For?

Author: Deepak Chopra, MD Publisher: Harmony Books 2013
Based on findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, this book advocates the principle that obstacles to healthy eating lie in the mind and that weight gain is a physical reflection of the choices made over a lifetime.

Book Review: Zero Belly Diet
