Enlightening, engaging, great read
Any other Bryson book
I am a big fan of Bill Bryson, he is the best storyteller in modern times, and can make any topic interesting - From Shakespeare to Australia, and has done it again with this book, highlighting a forgotten era which had some tremendous turning points which affect the way we live and think today. More please!
While the information inside this book is credible, it is sobering and disappointing because it's clear to me that this "end-of-dieting" diet is something I will never be able to live by.
The skinny of it is that you need to restrict your diet to vegetables, legumes, fruits and if you really insist, and tiny amount of fish/meat. Some nuts and seeds are also fine and even recommended.
No oil, no sugar, no salt etc. etc.
The problem is that for most people it is a proposition that is way out of their reach, and will undoubtedly cause people to throw their hands in the air in despair... and change absolutely nothing.
It would be much better if there was some guidance on how to make some small adjustments that will lead you to get closer to that ideal nutrition, but there's nothing of that sort in there.
