Best Self-Help Diet and Nutrition Books


Updated June 09, 2014

Here's a look at some nutrition and diet books that I recommend highly.


The F-Factor Diet

Nutrition expert Tanya Zuckerbrot has written this informative book to make eating a healthy diet easier. The F-Factor diet will help you lose weight and keep it off for good. The secret to healthy weight is eating enough fiber, and The F-Factor Diet has all of the tips and tools you need to lose weight and be healthy.

Food Cures

An excellent do-it-yourself manual for creating your own nutrition program. This book by Joy Bauer will teach you how to improve your health with the right foods.

Trim Kids

Childhood obesity has become a big problem and Melinda S. Sothern wrote this book to offer guidance for teaching kids to eat right and to exercise. She designed a 12-week program that will allow overweight kids to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The Culprit and the Cure

This is a great book by an expert on healthy living, Steve Aldana, Ph.D. What I like most about this book is that everything Aldana writing is backed up by research. It is well written, and a pleasure to read. Aldana not only tells you how to live healthier, he also teaches you why need to make these changes.

The Inflammation-Free Diet Plan

This interesting book helps you to sort out which foods will reduce inflammation and which foods will make inflammation worse. Author Monica Reinagel includes some excellent meal plans, recipes and her Inflammation Factor tables help you rate foods on their capacities to cause or reduce inflammation.
