The bestselling guide to healthy eating, debunking dietary myths, and proposing the radical benefits of low-carbohydrate diet, Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy is "filled with advice backed up by documented research" (Tara Parker-Pope, The Wall Street Journal). Dr. Walter Willett's research is rooted in studies that tracked the health of dieters over twenty years, and in this groundbreaking book, he critiques the carbohydrate-laden diet proposed by the USDA. Exposing the problems of popular diets such as the Zone, South Beach, and Atkins, Dr. Willett offers eye-opening research on the optimum ratio of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and the relative importance of various food groups and supplements. Find out how to choose wisely between different types of fats, which fruits and vegetables provide the best health insurance, and the proportions of each to integrate into their daily diet.

"Finally, a commonsense, science-based book on nutrition that you can trust!" -- Susan Love, author of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book and Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book "Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy is the best book on nutrition for the general public I have read to date. Dr. Willett is not afraid...to criticize some sacred cows -- including the USDA's food pyramid. I urge you to buy this book and read it for yourself; it will be well worth your time." -- Timothy Johnson, M.D., M.P.H., medical editor, ABC News
