New Edition of Author Willett’s Book Critiques MyPyramid

The updated edition of the best-selling book, Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy (Free Press, 2005) is now available, delivering straight talk on healthy eating that’s based on solid scientific evidence.

In the book, author Walter Willett, chair of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, critiques the USDA’s revised food guide pyramid, MyPyramid-and presents instead the evidence-based New Healthy Eating Pyramid. The updated edition includes new information on weight-loss strategies, trans fats, vitamin D, and other aspects of healthy eating that have emerged since 2001. New recipes that highlight whole grains, fresh produce and healthy fats offer dozens of delicious ways to eat according to the Healthy Eating Pyramid.
