    my Gf wants to eat healthier and im looking to get her a book that leads her through what good food choices are and why they are good so she can make smart food choices, and eat healthier.

    ive tried explain things she should eat but she doesn't seem to listen or understand what im saying.

    so i figure if i can find something that allows her to learn about different foods, like what will fill you up and taste good and what not, then she'd understand what to look for at the store.

    anyone have some good suggestions for books or information?

    that's more for fitness, but it's a great book. IMO the diet info in it is kind of lacking for nutrition and diet newbs.


    For nutrition I like the south beach diet book and you can just skip Phase I if you don't want to do the low carb part...also the Abs diet book is good. There are different Abs diet books and they're all good, you don't have to get the one for women.
