Our corporation just went to this diet manual this year. This honestly is the most useful manual our corporation has used.  I think it is awesome!
-Judie Engel, R.D., C.D.

I often thought a diet manual would include diet information only, but this manual had so much more specific disease information that explained the reasoning behind the actual diet principles and MNT. It was a great review for me! Awesome reference!
