I thought of one more that has been very helpful to me: it is called “The End of Overeating” and is by David Kessler. It is not only a review of the factors that lead to overeating but is also a very candid review of somebody who has walked in those shoes. I always try to empathize but some issues are difficult to imagine. His book has given me a very valuable insight into the mindset of somebody who feels quite powerless in the face of food and has helped me approach overweight clients even better. It has afforded me a way to open the subject in a way that the clients feel understood in their emotional framework.
Have you ever considered visiting www.lww.com.
You will be able to peruse many books that are based upon the science of nutrition.
Hope this gives you some direction.
All the best!
Must reads that I have enjoyed come mostly from the Weston A. Price group.
Nutrition & Physical Degeneration – W. A. Price. –
Nourishing Traditions – Sally Fallon – Overall great read, but tends to lean towards a high use of grains.
The Fourfold Path to Healing – Thomas Cowen – Endless source of information on functional nutrition.
And this one is not part of the WAP Foundation, although he combines moderns trends in nutrition with a rich foundation in Chinese culture and history. He is also a vegetarian, but does not believe that vegetarianism is for everyone.
Healing with Whole Foods: Oriental Traditions and Modern Nutrition – Paul Pitchford
