Summary What constitutes a healthy diet? Mainstream media and advertisers would like you to think that the answer to this question is complicated and controversial. But science, fortunately, tells us otherwise. A Conversation about Healthy Eating brings together all the relevant science about healthy eating in one place, and it's exactly that -- a conversation. This in-depth analysis leads to the simple conclusion that the specifics of what you eat don't actually matter; staying lean and healthy simply requires avoiding the overconsumption of processed foods. While that is, of course, easier said than done, science also provides clear recommendations for how you can adapt your environment and lifestyle to make it possible. Rather than simply presenting you with the principles of healthy eating, this book will help you to develop a comprehensive understanding of the science behind the principles. This understanding will allow you to ignore the noise in the media and to move forward with a healthy diet and lifestyle that work for you.
