Don't have a nutrition degree? That doesn't mean you can't have all the same knowledge as someone who does! Check out these five books that are all available as options in a dietitian's 5-year continuing ed curriculum.
THE HORMONE CURE
This is a book all women should read! We could even call it the Women’s Bible for Hormonal Health. Dr. Sara Gottfried makes sense of cravings, stubborn weight, feeling crazy and emotional, and everything that comes with raging hormones in the female body!
THE MIND-GUT CONNECTION: HOW THE HIDDEN CONVERSATION WITHIN OUR BODIES IMPACTS OUR MOOD, OUR CHOICES, AND OUR OVERALL HEALTH
Reading this book will increase your awareness of how significantly everything we ingest impacts our health: physically, mentally, emotionally.
Dr. Emeran Mayer will introduce you to the 1000 bacterial species that support your wellbeing, and conversely, depend on you for theirs. It’s the symbiotic relationship you didn’t know you were involved in until now – and it’ll change the way you feel!
EATING ON THE WILD SIDE: THE MISSING LINK TO OPTIMUM HEALTH
Jo Robinson will take you on a wild journey beyond the nutrition facts label and introduce you to the elaborate world of nutrients that exists within plants! Keeping this resource on hand will guide your attention away from carbs and calories, which often don’t give us enough information to make a truly healthy choice, and direct you toward the lesser advertised nutrients that fight illness, oxidation, and inflammation.
WHY WE SLEEP: UNLOCKING THE POWER OF SLEEP AND DREAMS
In our Western culture, we’ve come to pride ourselves on little sleep and more work. It’s unfortunate. Because when your body gets the rest it needs, you’ll find you’re more productive and satisfied with life. What Dr. Matthew Walker opens our eyes to (how 'bout that irony?) is the significance sleep has on our health and wellbeing, how not enough can rob good years from our lives, and what you need to do to get enough, quality sleep.
THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE
Wait, this doesn’t have anything to do with food and nutrition… Or does it? Well… Are you prioritizing your health? Or does it always seem to come last on your To-Do list? This classic resource, written by Dr. Steven Covey, is made entirely of powerful lessons in personal change, and will guide you into success with ANYTHING you wish to accomplish -whether that's taking steps to balance your cortisol, strengthen your gut health, include more fruits and vegetables, or get better sleep.
