Books for Health

I haven't read this particular book, The McDougall program for a healthy heart : a life-saving approach to preventing and treating heart disease by John A. McDougall ; recipes by Mary McDougall, but have found his other books helpful and interesting. It's call # at Glendale is 616.123 so look under that number for information about heart health. Published in 1996, this book will not have the most recent information, but he presents a strong case for nutrition being the most essential part of healthy living. And if you don't have much time to cook try his cookbook, The McDougall quick & easy cookbook : over 300 delicious low-fat recipes you can prepare in fifteen minutes or less. The cookbook is cataloged with the low fat diet books at this number, 641.5638.

Thanks, Catherine and will try to get to the library on Friday morning. Both books sound good!

Catherine...our local library does not have the book, but I did find out he's a big VEGAN sort of guy. I will cut down on the animal products and make healthier choices like chicken or fish but the vegan idea doesn't appeal to this chick (no pun intended!). I'd rather vote for Hillary and declare myself a flaming liberal democrat. lol!
