Have you ever wondered why Americans are so insatiable?

Rethinking Thin: The New Science of Weight Loss… and the Myths and Realities of Dieting by Gina Kolata
Don’t go on another diet! This books explains that nutrition is far more complex than “calories in=calories out.”

The Ultramind Solution by Mark Hyman
A few half-truths (likely due to efforts to simplify information, but may also be to highlight his own opinions); otherwise, good food for thought and lots of good info.

Change Your Brain, Change Your Life by Daniel Amen
Fantastic – it did change my life! Dr. Amen gets a lot of criticism for endlessly promoting his clinic and supplements, but in my opinion, the information is more than worth it, especially if you struggle with behavioral, mood, or brain chemistry issues.

The Essential Green You: Easy Ways to Detox Your Diet, Your Body, and Your Life by Dierdre Imus
Awesome information about how to choose the best personal care and cosmetics products.
