I absolutely love learning about nutrition and the food we eat which is why I'm such a junkie for documentaries and books on nutrition. How food works in the body is fascinating and having an understanding of it will increase your chances of changing to a healthy lifestyle for the long-term.

There are some documentaries that I've watched and books that I've read that have been really eye-opening and have influenced my approach to nutrition. I wanted to share some of them with you. I've complied a list and added a short tid bit on what each is about or what I took away from each. Check it out.
