"Wellness 100: 100 Carbs/100 Recipes," written by Amber French, DO and Kari Morris, is filled with facts, encouragement, motivation and recipes to help each and every one of us live and enjoy a healthy life. This program is to encourage a healthy lifestyle, based upon the idea of making good food choices, such as only having 100 crabohydrates in your diet for each day. The first part of the book discusses what should be included in one's diet and what should not, as well as the breakdown of each type of food. There are explanations for the rationale behind this diet such as how the intake of carbohydrates affects blood sugar and insulin. The second part of the book is recipes: recipes for each meal of the day and also split into categories such as fish, snacks and soups. Each recipe contains nutrition analysis information.

This book is very useful as it is filled with excellent information and it is written in a way that is easily understood by the reader. Some books written about nutrition and diets are filled with terms that the common person does not know or understand. That is not the case with this book at all! I liked how the chapters are divided and arranged. This book gives a wealth of resource in such a well-organized manner that it can be thumbed through quickly to find something specific. I really enjoyed the chapter that focused on hidden calories and how quickly calories can add up in drinks and other things you would not really think about at the time. The recipes for the most part seem to use common ingredients and they appear to be relatively simple to prepare. I am looking forward to trying several of these recipes! Overall, this is an excellent book to read if you are hoping to live a healthier life and want to make wiser choices as regards your eating habits.
