Dan Nadeau has treated patients, using a colorful diet as one path to health. Anne Underwood has combed the published literature on phytochemicals and spoken to hundreds of experts across the country. Again and again, the same bottom line emerges: whole foods - colorful foods - deliver protection against a broad range of ailments. And the reason comes back to the cornucopia of pigments and other phytochemicals they contain. That's the simple premise behind The Color Code. While we all know that healthy eating is the key to a long life, few people understand why the natural pigments that give fruits and vegetables their color can help protect your body, too.

I've always known it's important to eat my fruits and veggies...but I usually stuck with a few favorites such as carrots, tomatoes, and apples UNTIL I read Joseph and Nadeau's very exciting and well-written book, The Color Code. Their work at Tufts University is on the cutting edge of studying the benefits of the many phytochemicals in colorful fruits and veggies. Their research and citations are impressive -- these are no diet quacks out to make a buck -- and their message is clearly and persuasively written: Eat a rainbow of deep colored fruits and veggies everyday to take advantage of the virtual pharmacopia of substances provided by them, enhance your health, and help prevent age-related diseases. My children and I have had lots of fun in the produce aisle looking for deep colored new vegetables to try since reading this cutting edge addition to the nutritional field.

A friend told me about this book and how much the concepts when applied, had helped her feel so much better - and healthier! I have been following the ideas for around 4 weeks now and couldn't agree more. Even though my goal was not to lose weight, I've lost 10 pounds just by eating better - according to color! And believe it or not, I feel better as well. Buy this book and a bright highlighter. You'll soon be marking your favorite brightly colored foods - and then filling your grocery cart with them. Well written, easy to understand and chock full of references - it simply makes sense.

It is now 5 months later since I first reviewed this book and I've loaned out my copy to several people - all are experiencing similar results as I have. I continue to eat "by color", my weight has stayed off, I can't remember when I was last sick and what was merely a good book has become a terrific reference book. If you forget what particular benefits a certain color food has - simply look it up - layed out clearly in the book - by color of course!

NOTE: It is now January 2007 and I continue to eat according to "colors". My weight has stayed off, I was not sick even one day in 2006 and every week I fill up a plastic container (for work snacks) filled with vegetable color!

This is a great book, it explains nutrition in an easy and not too dry format. One can look up a specific food to see what it's about and how it compares to other foods. I use this book all of the time, and have also bought it for a friend who was looking for a source that would help him choose the right foods to eat for his health conditions. This book was originally recommended to me by a licensed nutritionist. I would recommend this volume to anyone looking to get serious about fueling their body.

I found the information in this book to be thought provoking enough to actually begin to implement the recommendations. We have always known that eating fruits and vegetables are good for us but the information provided here drives the point home. The scientific evidence presented is good and the authors seem to be pretty careful not to make unsubstantiated claims. They distinguish between studies that provide a degree of evidence and inferences that do not have clear cut support. The writing is clear, not sensationalistic but not patronizing either. The bibliography is appreciated and strengthens the value of their writing. Recommended if the subject interests you.

Excellent guide to healthy eating and the power behind the colors. After this book, it's easier to find easy ways to use the colors within many foods.
Very good quality and timely shipped.
