Tons of great advises and explanation on why things work the way they do. For example it was interesting to learn more about vitamins and why it’s preferable to eat vegetables and fruits and grains vs taking supplements. It also gave me a pretty clear idea of when I should add some vitamin C into my diet instead of just blindly taking pills every day. Overall this book is about common sense and a tested lifestyle which most Americans (me including) have a hard time following. I have compared it to Okinawa food pyramid and found a lot of similarities, except Japanese also clean their bodies with antioxidants such as tea and bitter melon. Definitely recommend this book to everyone.
