Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy overturns widely held, misguided ideas about diet — from the familiar food pyramid designed by the USDA to such popular trends as the Zone and the Atkins diets. Drawing on the Nurses' Health Study, the Physician's Health Study, and the Health Professional study conducted by Harvard Medical School, Dr. Walter Willett clarifies the optimum balance of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in a healthy diet and the relative importance of various food groups, and explains why weight control should be everyone's top priority. He spells out how to choose wisely between different kinds of fat and which fruits and vegetables provide the best health insurance. Best of all, he translates his recommendations into a practical eating plan with menus and wonderful, easy-to-make recipes alive with the fresh (and increasingly popular) tastes of Mediterranean cooking.

  • eye-opening new research on the healthiest carbohydrates, fats, and proteins

  • why weight control is the single most important factor
