Publisher's Summary

For over 3,000 years, practitioners of Chinese medicine have known that food is health-giving. Now, path-breaking nutritionist Linda Prout synthesizes the basic principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with the science of Western nutrition. 

With a clear focus to help listeners achieve balance, Prout introduces the concept of balance and describes the signs and symptoms of various patterns of imbalance from a TCM perspective. She provides simple self-assessments listeners can use to determine their own tendencies toward imbalance and recommends foods, cooking methods, and lifestyle changes to balance each pattern. 

Fats, proteins, carbohydrates and sugars are each discussed from a Western nutrition and Eastern perspective, with beneficial and potentially unhealthful choices given for each body pattern.

Amazing book, terrible narrator

The book is full of great knowledge, super comprehensive, well explained and easy to follow. However, the narrator is one of the worst I’ve listened to. Her tone and the way she emphasizes each sentence in exactly the same cadence is boring and super tiring. It’s like listening to a crappy ad. I regret buying this as an audiobook instead of reading the actual book.
