Choice Books - Food. The New Health Rules by Frank Lipman M.D. & Danielle Claro



Adding to my obsession with lovely books that are not only beautiful to look at but actually full of good info, this one is a really simple, interesting, easy read that pulls you in as soon as you open the cover.


It contains beautiful photography alongside sections including Eating, Moving, Boosting, Healing and Living that are easy to follow and not 'preachy'.


You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this page..... :)


The New Health Rules is priced around £13.00 (the same as Amazon) and is available from Waterstones.com - who also do free delivery and pay their UK taxes. ;)

  1. "Easy to follow, and not preachy" I like! That's my kind of book. Authors need to stop putting so much pressure on us, I say!

  3. Need to buy this! Interested to read about mineral oil/coconut oil. Recently, I decided to check my skin care and see if anything had mineral oil in it… turns out my Tazorac retinoid cream prescribed by my derm for acne has mineral oil in it! Stopped using it and my skin is looking so much better! Thanks Caroline!

  4. Hello Caroline. Thanks for a lovely blog. I was wondering about a product from Alpha-H that you've recommended on their web-page: http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk/alpha-h-daily-essential-moisturiser-spf-50.html
    I own it myself but just realized it contains paraffinum liquidum. And that is baaaaaad, right?! Straight to Le Garbage? ;)

    1. I need to ask them to remove that! It was based on something I wrote for them years ago where I talked about how much my husband loves it! Technically it doesn't really matter as its full of SPF anyway. It's feels nice. It's just not my fave. X

    2. Thanks for your reply! So what you're saying is that if it's a full on SPF anyways, it won't matter with the mineral oil? I have the other one with SPF 50 as well. No mineral oil in that one. But it makes me shiny.

      I don't wear foundation or any heavy make-up on a daily basis and would like an SPF(30-50) that doesn't make me look greasy/shiny as a finish, when I don't apply the foundation to "cover it up". Just a nice velvety finish - primerish. Any recommendations for a good naked-face SPF? I have watched the video with Ruth (love her) about your SPF-recommendations, but you don't really talk about "finish". When I go to the beach I don't care about shine, but I live in the city, and would like to be protected without grease :)

      Thank you so so much for your blog. I follow religiously and you have helped my skin so much - not my bank-account though :)

    3. The Paula's Choice Hydralight SPF 30 is great as a primer for me, very velvety.

    4. Sorry to but in but have you tried Clinique City Block? Its SPF 40 and is like a primer. Its also oil free so no shine :)

    5. Thank you for your recommendations - I will check the INCI list and texture on those. Most I have come across have titanium dioxide in them though...and Caroline has pointed out (in the video with Dr. Lens) that it may cause cancer...just great.

  9. Looks really interesting! Curious to read what it says about supplements, but afraid to become even more obsessed with healthy eating. As it is people think I'm mad, though I just think I eat normal, as in - without putting rubbish in my body ;)
    Sadly vaseline is THE ONLY thing that helps my poor dry heels... Yes, tried coconut and other oils for ages...

  10. I bet you did a little dance when you read the page regarding coconut oil vs mineral oil - I can imagine your glee.

  11. Hello Caroline, I've only recently discovered your blog and now follow your routine religiously and my skin is showing the benefits. The recent lovely weather has now got me thinking about sun cream and I've been using Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream sun defence spf 50 but I'm not sure if it contains mineral oil. Also it seems to make my skin a bit puffy which is something I get when I use a moisturiser with silicones in it. Can you do a top ten 'recommends' for your face sun screen in the near future. Thanks, Sheena.

  12. Ooh I may have to purchase this one. I am also currently trying to eat healthier and educate myself more on what's good and bad. Also trying to cut down on refined sugar. This week I've went from 3-4 bars of chocolate a day to just 1 bar so far this week. I've also just bought The Optimum Nutrition Bible by Patrick Holford on a few great recommendations. Keep up the good work Mrs Hirons X

  13. Dear Lady Hirons, here in germany most babyoils are made from natural oil. At least, if I believe the INCI-list. So I was a little suprised as I saw the picture from the "oil chapter". So, what do you think, can we believe INCI-Lists?

    1. I think the author of the book means baby-oils in the traditional manner - like Johnson&Johnson Baby Oil which is 100% mineral oil.
      Of course you can find baby oils from other brands etc. that are made from natural oils.

      You should most definitely be able to trust INCI lists!!!

    2. Thank's a lot. You are right. We should be able to. I'm just a little paranoid ;).

  14. looks interesting.

    another request, please, for your views on Jan Marini spf 30. I use this as a combined SPF and moisturizer. Is this very naughty of me?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Would it be possible to do a top 5\10 of facial SPF and a top 5\10 of moisturiser, Caroline? I dont wear makeup that much so I can't get spf from that, and I've no clue about moisturisers that do\dont contain mineral oil! I absolutely love the blog BTW!
    Thanks, Amelia ❤

  16. This looks like a lovely book. Have you read anything by Ben Goldacre about Dr Lipman? I love nutrition books but have always been put off any of Dr Lipmans books because of one of the chapters in Bad Science (I think).
