Monica Reinagel

St. Martin's Griffin


In Nutrition Zombies, licensed nutritionist and dedicated myth-buster, Monica Reinagel (aka the Nutrition Diva), drives a stake through the heart of 10 persistent nutrition myths -- so that you can get on with the business of eating well and feeling fabulous.
