It's really hard to separate the facts from opinions in this day and age where huge amount of information is available and readily accessible. There is often conflicting information across blogs, social media, news and other places making it tough to know what's right and what's wrong.
I would like to share some books with you that have helped me make the right food choices by learning about the science behind food.
These books have hard facts and evidence to support the narrative. Often citing clinical trials, research papers and experiments, these books will help you on the path to a healthy lifestyle. Most of them have great recipes too and it really helps especially when you are starting out!
