The Balanced Diet.

The Balanced Diet. One should not be misled by the title of this book. The reviewer imagines that the majority of physicians have heard so much of diets, calories, vitamins and food values that anything savoring of such subjects meets with unconscious disapproval. This is the first sensible book on the simple subject of diet that has appeared for the laity. Clendening writes well, and the book is intensely interesting. All that is necessary for the average person to know about food values is discussed sanely in the first hundred pages. The last hundred pages are even better and contain lists of diets for persons of various ages and persons with various diseases, with an excellent chapter on food fads. In the final chapter, on the economics of food, there is a plan of diet for four different economic levels.

Abstract

One should not be misled by the title of this book. The reviewer imagines that the majority of physicians have heard so much of diets, calories, vitamins and food values that anything savoring of such subjects meets with unconscious disapproval. This is the first sensible book on the simple subject of diet that has appeared for the laity. Clendening writes well, and the book is intensely interesting. All that is necessary for the average person to know about food values is discussed sanely in the first hundred pages. The last hundred pages are even better and contain lists of diets for persons of various ages and persons with various diseases, with an excellent chapter on food fads. In the final chapter, on the economics of food, there is a plan of diet for four different economic levels. This is the book that physicians have been waiting for as an answer
