Publisher's Summary

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.

Very informative

I really learned alot about food in this book. And for the content it was not hard to listen to. the narrators voice was not hard to listen to. The parts where you have to listen to the narrator read recipes gets boring, but that happens when an audio book as things in a list format.

Pass

This book contains nothing new, and doesn't cover important developments such as LDL-particle size. Go read Dr. Rhonda Patrick's website instead.
