If You Can't Read It, Don't Eat It: A Quick & Simple Guide to Eating Clean is a Bible-based guide to health and wellness through nutrition written by Harriet Hammond. The author was diagnosed with heart disease when she was in her twenties. She was prescribed medications which, while treating her arrhythmia, impacted on her naturally healthy blood pressure. Heart surgery helped her condition somewhat, but her doctor told her that she would be taking heart medication for the rest of her life. This grim pronouncement prompted Hammond to become proactive about her health and to find her own solutions, and she's now at her ideal weight, active, and medication-free. Her approach to nutrition is based upon her readings in the Bible as well as her research into food additives, pesticides and GMOs. She includes an extensive list of resources and references in her text as well as her appendix.
Harriet Hammond's guide to health and wellness, If You Can't Read It, Don't Eat It: A Quick & Simple Guide to Eating Clean, delivers what it promises: an accessible and easily followed guide to eating healthy, additive-free food. She follows biblical strictures on clean/unclean animals and offers detailed explanations on how these rules are applied. Hammond offers some impressive arguments on the dangers of processed foods, and her two-step dietary program is clearly set out and seems fairly simple to follow. As someone who is concerned about healthy eating, I was quite interested in her research on GMOs, pesticides and other additives, and was pleased with the links she's provided with her book. If You Can't Read It, Don't Eat It: A Quick & Simple Guide to Eating Clean is recommended for anyone concerned about health and nutrition.
