Publisher's summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Dr. Mark Hyman sorts through the conflicting research on food to give us the skinny on what to eat.

Did you know that eating oatmeal actually isn't a healthy way to start the day? That milk doesn't build bones, and eggs aren't the devil? Even the most health conscious among us have a hard time figuring out what to eat in order to lose weight, stay fit, and improve our health. And who can blame us? When it comes to diet, there's so much changing and conflicting information flying around that it's impossible to know where to look for sound advice. And decades of misguided "common sense," food-industry lobbying, bad science, and corrupt food polices and guidelines have only deepened our crisis of nutritional confusion, leaving us overwhelmed and anxious when we head to the grocery store.

Thankfully, best-selling author Dr. Mark Hyman is here to set the record straight. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? - his most comprehensive book yet - he takes a close look at every food group and explains what we've gotten wrong, revealing which foods nurture our health and which pose a threat. From grains to legumes, meat to dairy, fats to artificial sweeteners, and beyond, Dr. Hyman debunks misconceptions and breaks down the fascinating science in his signature accessible style.

He also explains food's role as powerful medicine capable of reversing chronic disease and shows how our food system and policies impact the environment, the economy, social justice, and personal health, painting a holistic picture of growing, cooking, and eating food in ways that nourish our bodies and the earth while creating a healthy society. With myth-busting insights, easy-to-understand science, and delicious, wholesome recipes, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? is a no-nonsense guide to achieving optimal weight and lifelong health.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Critic reviews

"Most people know that a good diet is the cornerstone of health, but are confused about what to eat. Low-carb, low-fat, Paleo, plant-based, raw-food, vegan or vegetarian? In Food, Dr. Hyman cuts through this confusion and empowers readers with confidence and clarity about what to eat." (Chris Kresser, MS, LAc, author of The Paleo Cure)

"Mark Hyman is a food revolution superstar. Here he makes a clear and powerful case that for most people, low-fat isn't the answer, but high-quality fats is. I have no doubt that the vast majority of people will be far healthier for following his advice." (John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and cofounder of The Food Revolution Network)

"Dr. Hyman hammers home that fats should be the foundation of our diet, an easy step given the power of the research he presents and his delicious recipes." (Mehmet Oz, MD)
