This book covers:

* The fundamental basics of nutrition.
* Definitions of good/bad fats, good/bad carbs, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and phytonutrients, and    how they are used in your body.
* The mind/brain/body connection and how nutrition is linked to mental health. 
* The truth about controversial foods and conflicting nutritional information.
* How to understand food labels and nutritional terms, key grocery marketing terms, and genetically      modified foods.

* Inclusion of water, fiber, grains, supplements, and super foods.
* Popular diets and how they work (low-carb, paleo, plant-based, Mediterranean, glycemic index, raw    food).
* Food allergies versus food intolerances and how to eat with them.
