							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.

"Uniquely knowledgeable, equally wise, unfailingly thoughtful, and deeply concerned for the well-being of people and planet alike, there simply is no better guide to dietary health- anywhere- than Walter Willett- and no better guidance than 'Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy.'" - David L. Katz, MD, MPH Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center

"In this updated edition of Eat, Drink and Be Healthy, Dr. Willett, one of the world's pre-eminent nutrition researchers, explains the latest evidence to help us all thrive, and live longer lives. And for home cooks, professional chefs, and food lovers everywhere, this must-read elegantly bridges nutrition and culinary strategies in ways that honor the cause of deliciousness and the pleasures of sharing food with family and friends." - Greg Drescher VP of Strategic Initiatives, The Culinary Institute of America
