This updated edition of the national bestseller debunks dietary myths and presents Dr. Willett's New Healthy Eating Pyramid, a healthier guide to nutrition than the recently revised USDA pyramid.
Inside you'll discover:
- eye-opening new research on the healthiest carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
- why weight control is still the single most important factor
- menu plans and brand-new recipes that make it even easier to reinvent your diet
""Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy is the best book on nutrition for the general public I have read to date. Dr. Willett is not afraid...to criticize some sacred cows -- including the USDA's food pyramid. I urge you to buy this book and read it for yourself; it will be well worth your time.""
