While being a long term fan of dietary control and nutritional balance, I had not previously come across a book satisfying both my philosophical parameters of food intake management and my scientific rationale for such processes. This book, by Christine Bailey, is, in my opinion, probably the most sensible collection of data and practical suggestions within the field of nutritional balance. It is a wide-spread contention that food intake, it’s control, nutritional benefit, unwanted side-effects and the medical conditions resulting from inappropriate amounts and types should be common sense. However, it seems there are an increasing number of people who do not have such common sense either, probably, due to loss of parental input to this philosophy or more likely as a result of overriding media barrage suggesting that “it doesn’t matter”. This book is the best I have seen at describing a proven connection between physiological chemistry and moods or mental acuity. I was impressed by the knowledge concerning the chemistry involved in some of our mood changes and the obvious passion with which this knowledge was placed into a practical scenario with reference to balance by appropriate food intake. The explanation of how physiological chemistry can alter what we feel or how our mental capacity can be altered by some of these chemistries gave a very good link into the suggested foods or food combinations which could potentially help to change those detrimental mental effects we
