Eat Your Colors

Marcia Zimmerman, Author Holt McDougal $14 (288p) ISBN 978-0-8050-6728-6
Wined and (Healthily) Dined Nutraceuticals ""foods that have medical-health benefits"" are the foodstuffs of nutritionist Marcia Zimmerman's Eat Your Colors: Maximize Your Health by Eating the Right Foods for Your Body Type. To simplify and personalize good nutritional practice, natural-medicine researcher Zimmerman (The A.D.D. Nutrition Solution) designates three digestive types green, red and yellow (yellow eaters, for example, need more animal protein than others) and offers a self-test for determining type. She suggests meal plans with information on phytoestrogens (which decrease breast and prostate cancer risk), polyphenols (immuno-boosters, heart-attack preventers) and anthocyanidins (anti-inflammatory treatment). The allusion to cosmetic color types will attract people who might otherwise overlook an eating guide not fixated on weight-loss. (Aug. 15)
