If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you eat, then it’s time to take a journey from the table to the toilet. This detailed and humorous exploration of what your body does to food—and what food does to your body—will leave you with a greater appreciation of the act of eating. You’ll never look at food the same way after The Metabolic Dance.
“Johnson and Hord have created a highly readable resource for nutrition students, applied researchers, and interested laypersons alike. This engaging and entertaining book illuminates a number of important issues not commonly treated in a didactic manner and certainly not covered in most nutrition textbooks. It’s a beautiful narrative in the style of the best of Lewis Thomas [Lives of a Cell] infused with The Fantastic Voyage.”
