A Solution to your New Year’s Resolution

Rich Food Poor Food Book Review
What if reducing calories, fats, carbs, or sugar wasn’t enough and you wonder why you are still not losing weight or have hit a plateau on getting leaner. Is what you’re putting in your body a failed system to start with?  Do you consistently find yourself fighting allergies, more illnesses, migraines, other headaches, less energy, swelling, inflammation, skin rash, aches, or pains as years pass by?  Do you think that you can eat anything on the planet and be healthy, because you are skinny or not overweight?  Are your “healthy” foods, drinks, protein/energy drinks, or supplements actually healthy? Today, I have written a mini-book review of a book called Rich Food Poor Food (which you can get by clicking HERE) that has easy to implement small changes. This book has many sections that make it easy on what to eat or not when they segment pages into “Steer Here” and “Steer Clear”.


Part of being in shape for golf or anything in general, is that you have to know what proper nutrients to put in your body to help it perform or function efficiently. Recently one of my clients has given me a book as a Christmas gift.  This book called “Rich Food, Poor Food” is authored by Jayson Calton, PhD and Mira Calton, CN.  I will be covering more tips and highlights of this book in the weeks to come, so make sure to check back for life changing solutions to your nutrition. Since reading the book, I was amazed how much more the information in the book has heightened my awareness of the subject. It was a big eye opener for me to realize that some of my so called healthy food was not actually healthy for me based on learning what each ingredient actually meant. I didn’t realize what was actually making me hungrier, until after reading the book and reflecting back on it. This book is specific on both brands and ingredients to go for or stay away from. There are 150 common poor food ingredients it calls out to avoid. Just avoiding a couple of them from your food intake could have a big impact.


Even the most health, conscious person who avoids processed and chemical additives in their foods, can often fall prey to misleading advertising and marketing gimmicks.  For instance, are Baked Lays Chips actually better than regular Lays Chips? Does milk actually do a body good?  This book helps clarify the healthiest and richest foods and drinks to help you achieve your health goals, along with reducing your negative health side effects.


This book is not another quick fix fad diet.  “This book is a simple, straightforward, logical approach to smart grocery shopping that has the ability to change your life, and forever change the way you shop.” – Rich Food, Poor Food.  It empowers you to know what each ingredient means and the potential health risks which could increase your likelihood of illnesses, cancer, toxins, slow metabolism, etc.  It also tells us which ingredients or chemical additives in foods/drinks will deplete you of your everyday micronutrients, which can increase the likelihood of any other negative health side effects.  Here are some of the highlighted quotes below on some of the things in the book that may make you think twice before ingesting another food or drink.


“While there are great many books, websites, and diet gurus out there today dispensing sound (and unsound) nutritional advice, Rich Food, Poor Food is one of the best books I have ever read, taking the idea of food quality to completely new level and offering quick and easy recipes, money-saving tips…”


The 8 Banned Bad Boys that “are banned in many other developed countries due to their detrimental effects on human health, but they are not banned in the U.S. For numerous suspicious and disturbing reasons, each of these Banned Bad Boys is still allowed in the U.S. Food Supply.”


Here is one of the Banned Bad Boys listed below.

Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO) is banned in more than one hundred countries.  In the U.S., its use is regulated by FDA extent that it is ‘PERMITTED IN FOOD OR IN CONTACT WITH FOOD ON AN INTERIM BASIS PENDING ADDITONAL STUDY.’ It doesn’t sound like our government is too sure of its safety either.  This may be because BVO has been linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.  FOUND IN: Mountain Dew, Gatorade, Crush, Sun Drop, Squirt, and Fresca.”


“‘If the people let government decide what food they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1781


You will find the material easy to understand, fun to learn, quick and easy rich recipes, and extremely valuable to your health and well-being.  By the time you are finished with Rich Food, Poor Food, you will have all the knowledge to be empowered to make smarter and safer decisions concerning food you are purchasing for your family.
