Have you become totally confused about making healthy food choices? The government has created the USDA Food Pyramid to “simplify” our decision making. But our guest, Walter Willett, MD, PhD, says the pyramid should be turned upside down. Dr. Willett is Chairman of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. He is also one of the country’s leading epidemiologists. That means he has reviewed data from tens of thousands of subjects so he can make informed recommendations about what we should and should NOT be eating. You will learn about essential fatty acids, the best “complex” carbohydrates and why protein is important to prevent surges in glucose and insulin levels. Dr. Willett is also author of “Eat, Drink and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating.”
