Pollan's philosophy boils down to seven words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. The 64 rules presented in this book provide guidelines to follow that credo in a common sense way.I love that Pollan gives us wiggle room - there's no need to follow every rule, but several will surely stay with you as they're written simply and memorably. Some of my favorites:- Eat only foods that will eventually rot.- Eat your colors.- "The whiter the bread, the sooner you'll be dead."This book reads very quickly but the advice will be sticking with me for a long time.
