Overview

Citing overwhelming medical evidence previously downplayed by powerful lobby groups, Dr. Barnard reveals why a diet based on the new four food groups (grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits) will sharply decrease the risk of cancer and heart disease and dramatically increase life expectancy. He also unveils a 21-day program for a smooth transition to the new way of eating healthfully. Line drawings.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

In 1991, national headlines revealed the medical proposal of replacing two of the four food groups--meat and dairy--with two new food groups: grains and legumes. Now Dr. Barnard presents a bold new dietary plan and shows how it can dramatically enhance one's chances for a long and healthful life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Vegetarianism is growing in this country, and the new food pyramid released by the Department of Agriculture has attracted media coverage. Barnard (medicine, George Washington Univ.) suggests his own food groups, which are grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes. Dean Ornish ( Eat More, Weigh Less, LJ 6/1/93) provides an introduction, but Barnard goes further than Ornish in advocating a complete vegan diet. He also goes further than Gene Spiller's The Superpyramid Eating Program ( LJ 3/15/93) in his claims for the health benefits of such a diet. While Barnard discusses the reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, obesity, and the danger of free radicals, he also mentions the likely effects of diet on balding, hormones and sexual function, early puberty, and general aging. Extensive chapter notes back up most assertions, with a few supported anecdotally. The recipes, though quick and easy to prepare, offer complex and delicious flavors and textures. This is recommended for collections on popular health and nutrition.-- Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg

    information is confusing

    This says that the food pryamid was changed to a 4 groups. Eliminating meat and dairy. Yet the 2007 food pyramid shows a 6 group pryamid with milk in its own section and meat and beans sharing a section. So how is the new pyramid 4 sections withour meat and dairy in it?
