Eat this and live! By Don Colbert, M.D.

“Eat this and live!” by Don Colbert, MD is a guide on how to make simple food choices for a healthier lifestyle. It’s an easy-to-read book with lots of full-color photos, sidebars, nutritional information, and lots of tips on healthy eating. I enjoyed reading it, and although many of the tips and advice were familiar to me from reading and living a healthy lifestyle, I still enjoyed this book and found it useful as we continue to try to eat healthy.

If you’re familiar with Dr. Con Colbert, you know he wrote the New York Times bestselling book, “The Seven Pillars of Health,” as well as “Toxic Relief” and the Bible Cure series. Colbert includes some biblical references in this book, but not many. His main focus is choosing foods for health.

Talk about live food vs. dead food, how your body is a temple, and what the bible says about food in the first three chapters of the book. From then on, it’s all about food and what foods to avoid and what foods to eat.

He writes very clearly and explains why to avoid or why to eat certain foods. It distinguishes between the foods that it recommends never eating and those that must be eaten with caution. Drinks and what to drink are also included.

There are even sections on shopping, food storage and preparation, smart choices when dining out (including specific dishes that are healthier at certain restaurants like Subway, Quiznos, Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, Applebee’s, Chili’s, Cracker Barrel, Perkins and some others Really a great little book on how to eat nutritiously and stay healthy.The colorful design made it more interesting to read than the plain black and white text, and the sidebars and extras were interesting and helpful.

Overall, it’s a great little book for anyone who wants to eat more nutritious food to feel better and live longer. I plan to check it out from time to time when I’m helping plan healthy meals for our family. Because really, no matter how good a book is, the key is to use Colbert’s advice to eat better, feel better, and live longer.
