Did you know that eating sushi in the winter can be positively bad for you?
Any idea why you need to eat a different lunch when it starts to rain?
Or why steak is more nutritious than a salad?
Forget everything you thought you knew about healthy eating. This book offers an exciting new take on nutrition – showing how climate, the season, our environment and emotional wellbeing should all affect the way we eat.
Combining age-old traditions of healthy eating (did you know that the Victorians had the best diet of any Britons before or since?) with the latest scientific research, clinician George Cooper shows you how to ignore the fads and eat right for yourself.
He explains exactly how your digestive system works (and why you need to know), and offers easily-adaptable recipes plus useful tips to get you to rethink your relationship with food.
George Cooper studied biological sciences at Oxford but developed a severe digestive illness during his studies. After receiving no benefit from conventional medicine, he looked to Chinese techniques, training in traditional Chinese medicine. He now runs a busy clinic in Bristol, offering acupuncture and nutritional advice. He also teaches at the University of Bristol Medical School and the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
