This book was absolutely amazing. It changed my life and my entire perspective on nutrition counseling. Linda is truly a master at what she does. You will find the ideas and insight to be extremely eye opening. Linda not only understands nutrition but she lives it with her countless board positions and helping others to begin a healthy live regardless of their age. Thank you so much Linda.
