Top 5 Books to Read

While I received a formal education in nutrition, much of what I now use in my practice and for my own health came from reading various books. These are the top 5 that really shaped my thoughts about health and nutrition. 

Why We Get Fat, Gary Taubes

This book has so much information in it that I've read it over and over again, making copious notes. Taubes takes us through the scientific reasons we get fat along with revealing the bad nutritional science we've been following and why. 

Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan

This book forever changed how I thought about our food system. 

Eat the Yolks, Liz Wolfe

Straight forward (and funny!) information all about Real Food and why it's the way to go. 

Wheat Belly, Dr. Davis and Grain Brain, Dr. Perlmutter

Dr. Perlmutter delves deep into why wheat is causing us so many health problems. 

Taking Charge of Your Fertility, Toni Wescheler

This book isn't about nutrition per say, but I highly recommend reading it and learning more about how your body works, your reproductive health and fertility. This book is helpful whether you want children or not. I wish I had read this years and years ago!
