#1New York Timesbestselling 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 isn't a healthy way to start the day? That milk doesn't build bones, and eggs aren't 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, there's so much changing and conflicting information flying around that it's 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. InFood: What the Heck Should I Eat?-- his most comprehensive book yet -- he takes a close look at every food group and explains what we've 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 food's 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.

The most interesting book I've read about one of the most important topics: our food. Covered is detailed info regarding our food supply, food industry politics & policies, study results. All of that is then summarized into practical, easy to understand principles of what works best to feel better, optimize health or even heal existing problems. I highly recommend this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What is healthy to eat? It is so very hard to know what to eat if you want to eat healthy. It seems every other week there is a report that contradicts what was previously labelled as health. I found that this book really cleared up the misconceptions, half-truths and just down right lies. A great read and a keeper

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This book clearly outlines what can be eaten without preservatives, sugar or processed foods. Explains how foods are not equal outlining item by item what to use and what to avoid. To complete this ensure getting a copy of the authors previous book, 'The Ultramind Solution' Hyman coined the term 'broken brains'. 'The Daniel Plan Cookbook' for a wealth of recipes that Dr. Hyman was involved with and if you really want to know the complete danger of sugar, 'Pure White and Deadly: how sugar is killing us' by John Yudkin.
