Nutrition for Slobs



Natural health for people who live in the real world

This book was written for people who like to indulge. It explains exactly what happens in the body, and what you can do/take to mitigate any harm.

Realising that most people are reluctant to give up habits the the Diet Police have declared to be bad, naturopath, Mim Beim has compiled this livable, sensible guide to good eating.  In separate chapters she discusses the health effects of alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes, recreational drugs and exercise, indicating how much is too much, or too little.

Although published over 20 years ago, it still contains valuable information.

Great cartoons by Nick Bleasel.
