Review by Isabelle Green

Unmasking Super Foods, takes an in-depth look at over 30 foods, to see which ones are worth incorporating into our diet, which ones are overrated by food industries and which ones have a bad reputation but are actually good for you.

Using the latest research, Jennifer Sygo separates fact from fiction when it comes to the latest food hypes such as Acai, Gogi, Quinoa and Chia seeds.

She also shows how beef, which has been given a bad rap in the recent years, is actually a very nutritional food choice in moderate portions and in its unprocessed form.

People who eat nuts and avocados in moderate portions tend to lose rather than gain weight because of their appetite-suppressing effects.

Finally, if there are two true super foods to incorporate into your diet, Sygo suggests kale and collard greens.

These particular greens are nutritionally dense and much of the research has established them as disease and cancer-fighting agents.

Sygo has a very methodical writing style which is easy to read.

The book is very well researched and all claims are backed up with hard scientific evidence. If you want to optimize your nutritional intake, then this book is for you.
