      I read the The Whole Grain Diet Miracle Dr. Lisa Hark and Dr. Darwin Deen a few months ago when I bought it at Amazon for $10. The book was delivered to me in 15 days after ordering it online, and it was brand new. The book was around 600 pages long, with a dark cover featuring some photos of whole grains and the big title of the book in front.

      I was impressed by how this big topic was divided into 4 chapters. It first begins with an introduction from the authors about recent studies on the health benefits of whole grains and why the public should care eating them everyday.

      One of the studies mentioned is about how the Whole Grains Council found that 68 percent of Americans are unaware that they should be eating three daily servings of whole grains. Forty-seven percent said they


      were looking for practical ways to incorporate whole grains into their everyday diets. While the recent studies about whole grains are nothing new, the studies are actually compelling reasons for everyone to start eating them and not processed food.

      The first chapter of the book is called, ‘Health Benefits of Whole Grains’. Here, the authors talk about whole grains in general, what they are, where they came from and what makes them set apart from other types of food like meat, poultry and high-fiber rich food. They enumerate the specific health benefits and nutrients found in these foods, which are actually enumerated in five pages. These foods are actually enumerated alphabetically. There were actually more than 600 whole grain foods here.

      The next chapter proceeds with a more condensed list of 16 of the best whole grains you should be eating everyday. The chapter dedicates itself to ...


      • the ‘16 Miracle Grains’ as aptly called because of their best amounts of nutrients and outstanding health benefits which bested the rest of the whole grains in the previous list. Here, the authors specifically enumerate more of the scientific evidences involving their health benefits, and their brief profiles as to where they are found or grown, how many per servings you should eat everyday to get the best of them.

        What struck me in ‘50 Delicious Whole Grain Recipes’ is how the authors have put together 50 recipes which everyone can follow if they want to have a diet involving whole grains. I won’t enumerate them here, but as I read the recipes they are easy to do and follow, and the ingredients are easy to find as well. I like how these recipes can help anyone include whole grains in their diet so that they don’t

        have any excuse anymore.

        Instead of telling the readers to stop eating a certain category of food which they currently eat, they advise the readers to include whole grains by providing various tips. For example, they encourage the readers to experiment with exotic or lesser known whol grains, while giving basic cooking instructions and recipes which can help them start the next day. All these cooking guides and options help readers understand and learn that it is not hard to include whole grains in their everyday life.

        The book is clearly a good guide on whole grains and more. It is more of a nutrition guide, I think, because the authors have laid out all that we need to know about whole grains - from their origins, specific health benefits, scientific research, recipes, menu plan and everything else to get whole grains in their everyday life.
