Product Description

Throughout history there has been a vast array of nutritional claims and dietary advice. For example, there is evidence of dietary regimens involving fasting as far back as in Ancient Greece and many examples since of diet being used either to restrict intake to lose weight or to act as a cure for a medical complaint. While it is true that the areas of diet and nutrition are subject to evolving research, there are basic concepts and advice that do not alter. Throughout this ebook we will return to these basic concepts whilst also considering the value of new research and developments.
