What is the ‘best’ diet? Do I need to choose between low fat and low carb? Should I give up gluten, dairy, or meat?
Two bestselling experts provide the answers to your most burning food and diet questions in this informative, accessible book that will transform your health.
Bittman and Katz cut through all the noise about what to eat with clear, science-based facts, in an easy-to-digest Q and A format, covering everything from basic nutrients to superfoods to fad diets. They answer questions like:
What is a calorie, and are all calories the same?
Is there an ideal weight?
Should I follow a Mediterranean, Paleo, or vegan diet?
Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?
Can intermittent fasting help me to lose weight?
Could an anti-inflammatory diet improve my health?
What is a flexitarian?
Filtering the science of nutrition through a lens of common sense and clarity, How To Eat provides real answers on how to achieve good health, longevity, and vitality.
All major areas of nutrition science are addressed, from the evolution of human food consumption to understanding current studies … Debunking nearly all current diet trends, including keto and paleo diets, the authors also discredit the superfood phenomenon … [T]he demand for this straightforward resource about the current state of nutrition should be high.
