The Egg Project: Gary Null's Complete Guide to Good Eating

Gary Null. Four Walls Eight Windows, $12.95 (252pp) ISBN 978-0-941423-05-2

""No one aspect of good nutrition can be applied in isolation; all must be considered together,'' says prolific health writer Null (see review of Good Food, Good Mood above), who discusses here the combined importance of diet, exercise and environmental factors. In a highly political introduction, Null faults agribusiness for the lack of nutrients in most food. Null discusses the basics of the six major nutrients: carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals and water, and educates readers on how to rid bodies of toxins, accumulated through chemical pollution and the ingestion of animal protein and foods containing allergens or chemical additives. Although intelligently written and informative, this controversial book will only attract readers already dedicated to alternative health practices. It proffers a rigorous detoxification and rebuilding program, with recipes and exercise and diet regimens sometimes supplemented by enemas and short-duration fasts. (February)
