Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
So you think those puffed rice cakes you've been gobbling up are good for you? Think again. In this video based on his bestselling book, nutrition expert Dr. Andrew Weil (8 Weeks To Optimum Health) challenges popular notions about what's healthy and what will help us lose weight. Addressing an enthusiastic audience at the New York Botanical Gardens, Weil presents his no-nonsense, user-friendly approach to maintaining a healthy diet without sacrificing good taste or the social connections that make eating pleasurable. Refuting claims made by diet gurus such as Dr. Atkins, Weil explains the importance of balancing macronutrients -- fats, proteins, and carbohydrates -- which all have their healthy and unhealthy forms. He then goes on to compare "optimum" diets from various cultures, making a convincing case for following the Mediterranean practice of using olive oil instead of butter. Straightforward, sensible, and medically sound, Eating Well For Optimum Health is a powerful wake-up call -- after watching this you'll hesitate before grabbing that overprocessed snack.
