New York Times bestselling author and cutting-edge nutrition expert Lyn-Genet Recitas reveals the surprising truth behind the "healthy" foods that cause weight gain and provides personalized meal plans for rapid weight loss.

The Complete Guide to Healthy Cooking and Nutrition for College Students Book Description :

College students face a number of stigmas when they first leave home and start living on their own. From not having their parents nearby to help clean and answer questions to being responsible for their own cooking and cleaning, the move from High School to College can be a bit of shellshock for many teenagers.

All of this can be avoided though with healthy cooking and an eye for good choices. This book was written to provide every...
