    Science comes to the rescue.

    After years of following the dietary habits of nurses, physicians, and others in long-term cohort studies, this investigator comes to some surprising conclusions regarding the benefits and dangers of various dietary regimens. If you are dieting, thinking about embarking on a diet, taking supplements, think you do not need to loose weight with a Body Mass Index below 25, or are simply confused about the rash of claims of health benefits for various dietary practices-you need to read this book. This is not a fad diet book. While the jury is still out on many common dietary proscriptions, there is good evidence to support the many recommendations Willett makes-and not everyone is going to be happy with his conclusions. Some background science is very clearly explained, such as types of fats (HDL/LDL/Transfats etc.).

    This book is a must!

    I love this book. I actually have two copies. The previous book and this new updated version. I recomend this book to everyone struggling with weight or bad blood work results. This book puts your health and foods effects on it in simple easy to understand terms. I like that it is an unbiased book and is a collection of multiple studies results and not just one. Thank you for a wonderful book!

    One of the best nutrition books out there!

    I read a lot about nutrition, diet, and health. It's an obsession really. I even read about diets I completely disagree with. Having said that, this is the best book in this area that I have come across. There is no 'selling' of a diet. It's clear, concise research that outlines a very well-rounded nutrition plan that isn't difficult to follow.

    Read, Think, and Be Healthy

    Finally, a book that uses actual facts to provide us the best information available for a healthy diet. This book isn't a list of anecdotes about someone's neighbor's cousin losing 50 lbs. by eating bacon and eggs. The findings in this book are backed by large, long-term studies. Find out about the carbs you need and the fats you should add. Read this book and refer to it afterwards as you incorporate the findings into your diet.

    Awesome book!

    This book was amazing! It breaks down the reasoning behind the good carb/bad carb phenomenon. He backs up all of the information with hard scientific data, and makes it easy for a normal person to understand. Being a gym owner, it makes it easier for me to explain healthy eating to my members when I understand the science. If you want to find out WHAT to eat, this is the book for you. Dr. Willett actually explains the effects that foods have on your body. This book is a must-read for anyone who is dieting!
