Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? by Mark Hyman#1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman sorts through the conflicting research on food to give us the skinny on what to eat.
Did you know that eating oatmeal actually isnt a healthy way to start the day? That milk doesnt build bones, and eggs arent the devil?
Even the most health conscious among us have a hard time figuring out what to eat in order to lose weight, stay fit, and improve our health. And who can blame us? When it comes to diet, theres so much changing and conflicting information flying around that its impossible to know where to look for sound advice. And decades of misguided common sense, food-industry lobbying, bad science, and corrupt food polices and guidelines have only deepened our crisis of nutritional confusion, leaving us overwhelmed and anxious when we head to the grocery store.
Thankfully, bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman is here to set the record straight. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? -- his most comprehensive book yet -- he takes a close look at every food group and explains what weve gotten wrong, revealing which foods nurture our health and which pose a threat. From grains to legumes, meat to dairy, fats to artificial sweeteners, and beyond, Dr. Hyman debunks misconceptions and breaks down the fascinating science in his signature accessible style. He also explains foods role as powerful medicine capable of reversing chronic disease and shows how our food system and policies impact the environment, the economy, social justice, and personal health, painting a holistic picture of growing, cooking, and eating food in ways that nourish our bodies and the earth while creating a healthy society.
With myth-busting insights, easy-to-understand science, and delicious, wholesome recipes, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? is a no-nonsense guide to achieving optimal weight and lifelong health.

Functional Approach to Ketogenic Diet - Mark Hyman, MD
Eating meat will clog your arteries, cause cancer and type 2 diabetes, and take years off your life, right? No, but you could be excused for believing that. A lot of people do, meat lovers and abstainers alike. This food, that as a species we have eaten since the beginning of our evolution, has become the most controversial thing on our plates. Is meat really bad for us, or really good for us? If we want to live long, healthy lives, should we eat a lot of it, a little, or none at all? While anti-meat advocates and scientists have tried to scare Americans by linking meat to everything from cancer to heart disease, diabetes, and even obesity, research actually shows meat is a nutrient-dense food that can help prevent disease and nutritional deficiencies when you eat it with plenty of plants and vegetables and not as part of the typical Western diet and lifestyle.
