Is a vegan diet healthier? Should I try going low-carb? Is it always a bad idea to skip a meal? Are superfoods all they’re cracked up to be? Is fat still bad for you? Can I eat to improve my chances of conceiving?

Science of Nutrition cuts through the noise of conflicting diet advice with clear answers backed up by the very latest research.

Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to nutrition, this ground-breaking book has the answers to all your food-related questions, covering every conceivable topic—from gut bacteria to weight management, to heart health and immune support, to vegan diets and intermittent fasting, and everything in between.

With an accessible Q&A approach and informative graphics, this nutrition book will debunk popular food myths and diets, redefine nutrition in the modern world, and enable you to make informed decisions that are best suited to you, about what, when, and how to eat.

The book’s easily digestible and evidence-based advice empowers you to explore the benefits and importance of nutrition, alongside the downright misleading when it comes to the world of food and diet, and to equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence to assess and enhance your approach to nutrition.

  1. Tara Lewis (verified owner)

    I can’t recommend this book highly enough. The amount of information available on all different aspects of nutrition and health is invaluable. Never before have I read a book with this level of detail. Love it thank you so much! Going to buy another copy for my daughter.

  2. Elle W (verified owner)

    Love it. It’s so well written and informative. It’s so hard to know what is right or wrong in a world where there is so much conflicting information and this book cuts through the Bs.

  3. M (verified owner)

    So well laid out, packed full of extremely easy,
    uncomplicated information! And WOW is it a fascinating read when you’re no
    longer dieting and instead reading from the perspective of health/what feels good/how to nourish your body.
    I love that Rhiannon covers the fact dieting is
    unsustainable within this book and covers what does work from a nutritionist perspective.

    As someone who has gone from dieter to eating intuitively, it was so important in the beginning (beginning’ being a very long time for me!) to eat all the less nutritious foods in abundance to completely neutralise them.
    I’m at a stage where the nutrition part is sinking in, and I’m no longer looking to eat for weight loss, I’m looking to eat for what feels good in my body, what serves my body and what makes me feel my best. Weight loss happens to be a by product of no longer overeating as a result of the psychological work I’ve I done/continue to do.
    But this book is somewhat really helping with this mind/body connection I’ve got going on, in terms of ‘what’ I’m eating, by explaining everything so straightforward!

    I highly recommend!
    Thank you Rhiannon for gracing us all with this little piece of treasure that just so happens to look gorgeous on my bookshelf!

    I don’t know much about nutrition, but this book really breaks it down and makes it easy to understand. Lots of diagrams to help explain things too!

  5. Alyrra (verified owner)

    I’ve been on a hunt for a nutrition book and so glad I found this one. This is exactly I was looking for! A beautifully presented book with easy to understand information. I can’t recommend this book highly enough!

  6. Jackie (verified owner)

    Very good, a little basic, but well presented

  7. Tess Greene (verified owner)

    Very basic information but is well laid out and easy to understand for someone who has zero idea about nutrition.

  8. Ken/Jessica cd (verified owner)

    OK for novices

  9. Leandro Figueiredo (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed it. Very informative. I guess it does not have the deepest duscussion about nutrition. It discusses many topics with an easy language

  10. InmanLee (verified owner)

    Highly recommended for anyone who cares about health. Arguably, the best book for nutrition.

  11. Thiago O. (verified owner)

    Very educational

  12. Faye (verified owner)

    After listening to Rhiannon’s podcast ‘food for thought’ I decided to purchase this book .
    It’s really informative but in a really clear and easy to read format .
    Helpful sectioning to keep going back to and over .
    Will be a book I keep referring too .

  13. C. Eastwood (verified owner)

    Easy to understand and layout is colorful and easy to understand.

  14. Arsham Manukyan (verified owner)

    Book is geeat, I learned a lot and explained some things also to my kids. I wish nutrition was taught at school. It’s basic, but few people know the fundamentals of healthy eating.

  15. BTC (verified owner)

    The information in this book covered some of the same content in my classes

  16. Zachary Delano Middleton (verified owner)

    This book is designed to answer the “whys” (or the Frequently Asked Questions) to the “whats” of nutritional eating from a respected nutritionist. I thought the book content was excellent.

  17. Quail Run (verified owner)

    This lovely and thoughtful book is a read that can teach us a broader view on a healthy lifestyle,. The Science of Nutrition should be taught from a young age to aid all humans on the importance of a healthy eating life style that transcends into a happier life. We all need to be active in our overall well being.
    My husband and I are retired chefs and have always maintained high food standards and eating habits. In this world of quick food/quick life we are doing a dis service to ourselves.
    Your book is wonderfully written for the lay person and full of great knowledge. Clearly written, gorgeous illustrations and photography.
    Knowledge is power.

  18. Gloria Mutchler (verified owner)

    Amazing visuals! The graphics are perfect. This book makes so many concepts easier to understand and answers a lot of complex questions in simple formats. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning nutrition.

  19. Iuliana (verified owner)

    This book is good for those who want to know the basic stuff in nutrition, which should be somewhat familiar to people from day to day life. Very good structured and easy to read.

  20. Muy chuli (verified owner)

    Es un libro súper completo y didáctico. Me gusta mucho

  21. dennis clute (verified owner)

    This book breaks down the topic of nutrition into short bites (pun intended) that allow the reader to focus on what is applicable to them. Excellent.

  22. Alice H. (verified owner)

    I purchased this to have nutritional information all in one place. But having listened to many pod casts on the subject I was easily able to see there are quite a few mistakes in here. For those that are just looking for an high level overview it’s fine but those looking to change their diet then the mistakes could be an issue.

  23. Jacob (verified owner)

    Very interesting has a lot of detail

  24. hypercritic (verified owner)

    Designed for lay readers although some may find it too complex. Occasional half truths irritate but on the whole a useful book.

  25. Hemant (verified owner)

    It was a very very good read. It was great to understand the fundamentals of food and nutrition. I think I loved how descriptive it was, it also covered the misconceptions about foods and food habits. It is a very amazing book, everyone must read it. You would know how to eat better afterwards and even while reading this book. “You would know yourself better when you read this book” is the best thing that I can say about this book.

  26. Wayne Burleson (verified owner)

    Book came early. In great condition.

  27. Booklover (verified owner)

    I love this book. Very informative and easy to read with information really well laid out. My whole family are enjoying it.

  28. K. G. Goddard (verified owner)

    A great book for anyone interesting in nutrition but doesn’t want to be confused by endless waffle. It gets right the the practical and useful stuff. You don’t need to be a scientist to read this one. Brilliant.

  29. Oricka (verified owner)

    Interesting reading

  30. Pavlin Marinov (verified owner)

    Highly recommend the book.
