Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating

By | September 29, 2018

There’s an ever-growing body of evidence supporting the relatively simple principles that are behind healthy eating – yet the public seems to be more confused than ever. Never-ending promotions of fad diets get in the way of people making healthy choices.

In this revised and updated edition of Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy, Dr. Willett uses eye-opening research to explain the relative importance of various food groups and supplements as well as how to choose foods with the best types of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. He reveals why controlling weight – after not smoking – is the single most important factor for a long, healthy life, why eating some types of fat is beneficial and necessary, how to choose wisely between different carbohydrates, how to pick the right protein packages, and what fruits and vegetables – not juices! – fight disease.

He also translates this essential information into simple menu plans and tasty recipes, providing an important resource for families everywhere.

The really bad thing is that it drives other programs such as how our military is fed and how the food stamp program works. FDA info is governed more by food industry lobbiests than science.So in steps Dr. Willett with science-based information on nutrition. He has reworked the pyramid by using scientific studies. The book is…
