I need to ask someone regarding a diet programme. He/she has read the book which contains the diet programme. Which one below would be correct:
According to the book, is boiled food recommended over fried food?
According to the book, is boiled food recommended to fried food?
While there might be ways to say it in a better way, I would want to know which would be grammatically correct. Chances are both are wrong.
Optionally, feel free to express the same thing in a better way.
