In the health and fitness industry truth is a scarce commodity, charges Dr. Larry M. Forness. American consumers, exposed to a daily barrage of hype and misinformation about all the products and services that claim to make them healthier and more attractive, annually spend forty billion dollars needlessly on a cornucopia of vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements, ergogenic aids, fitness equipment, and alternative healthcare treatments. In this "survival manual," Forness's goal is to teach consumers the critical tools to make them more knowledgeable about these questionable items. The topics covered include the real meaning of ôscientifically proven," methods for quantitatively analyzing such claims as "more energy" and "improved strength," alternative healthcare treatments vs. hard science, fad diets, aging remedies, abuse of the labels "certified" and "licensed," plus an extremely useful glossary explaining commonly used marketing terms. To reinforce his message, Forness has originated the "Bozo du Jour Award," bestowed on various individuals, groups, or companies that have created or participated in misleading advertising, or have done something that could harm consumers. Before you begin yet another weight loss or fitness program or buy the next healthcare product, you owe it to yourself to read what Dr. Forness has to say.

Everyone wants to eat healthy. But with the thousands of products lining the grocery store shelves it can be overwhelming. Is fat-free or gluten-free healthier? What are food labels really saying? What does "natural" truly mean and is organic produce and grass-fed meat worth the extra cost? It can be confusing, not to mention expensive. It doesn't have to be that way. The Real Food Grocery Guide helps you navigate every aisle of the grocery store clearly outlining what foods are truly the healthiest, the freshest, and the most economical (and which ones belong in the garbage rather than your grocery cart!) The Real Food Grocery Guide is the most comprehensive and actionable guide to grocery shopping and healthy eating ever with advice on: · what to eat for health, balanced weight, and longevity · how to shop to save a significant amount of time and money · how to decipher food "buzz words" (like natural, grass-fed, wild, organic, gluten-free, etc.): know which to buy and which to leave on the shelf · how to select the most nutritious and delicious produce, every time (no more getting home with brown avocados or tasteless melon) · why the quality of animal-products-such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy-is crucial--and how to choose the healthiest kinds · how to store fresh food properly so it doesn't spoil too quickly · why calorie counting is futile - and what you should look for instead to determine the healthiness of any food · how to decipher what a food label is really saying · how to avoid being duped by sneaky food industry claims and choose the best packaged products every time
