Michael Fenster, “Dr. Mike,” cardiologist, professional chef, and author of The Fallacy of the Calorie promises to give the reader clarity. “This is a book for lost souls.

Eating Well, Living Better

 

The cardiologist in Fenster hates fast food’s bodily damage, the chef loathes the mediocre flavors and textures, the businessman frets over worker exploitation, and the martial artist laments the lack of exercise that often accompanies the fast-food approach to human sustenance. He presents a wide-ranging survey of contemporary nutritional and physiological research to support his program of Buddhist-inspired moderation, cautioning about dangerous excess in either extreme. -Booklist
