Description

Product Description

#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 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. 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 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.

Review

"Our country faces huge challenges. Every Citizen must be healthy, creative and energetic if we are to adequately address those challenges. With Food, Dr. Mark Hyman has given every American a clear and straightforward field manual on how to get and stay healthy, for themselves and for our country. We must get a little healthier now or the cost of health care will sink our economy in the not too distant future. This practical book could not have come at a better time."― Congressman Tim Ryan, Ohio, author of The Real Food Revolution

"Just about every time someone leaves the doctor''s office, they are told to exercise and eat well. Sadly, at this point in our collective human history, there is still not wide consensus on how to do either properly. With nutrition in particular, it feels like near daily whiplash. Yesterday coconut oil seemed a panacea, by tomorrow you may hear it causes heart disease. Dr. Mark Hyman, who has diligently dedicated his life to wellness, has a new book that may offer some much-needed relief. Food goes between the lines of nutrition research, providing a clear roadmap for the confused eater."― Sanjay Gupta, MD

"Dr. Hyman eloquently answers what may well be the most important question we all ask ourselves every day. Food brings the very best in nutritional science to a place of clarity and implementation for everyone."
--David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain and Brain Maker

"Mark Hyman knows as much about food and our health as any human being alive. His new book, Food, is an invaluable guide to what we should eat and, perhaps more importantly, what we shouldn''t, to get healthy and stay healthy."
Gary Taubes, author of The Case Against Sugar

"Finally, a book that puts common sense and integrity back into the discussion about what to eat -- despite decades of being fed a steady diet of nonsense by so-called ''trusted authorities.'' Bravo, Dr. Hyman. this book is good medicine."― Christiane Northrup, MD

"Food has turned out to be a much more powerful medicine than we were all taught, yet for so many of us, the many different diets available paint a confusing picture. In his new book, Dr. Mark Hyman has provided exactly what we need: an expert analysis, clear-headed description, and effective solution to what the heck we should all be eating to optimize our health and longevity. This may be the most important book you read on this critical topic, and Dr. Hyman is one of the precious few with both the expertise and writing skill to make this information available and digestible."― Dale Bredesen, MD, author of The End of Alzheimer''s

"In a world of increasing dietary anxiety, Dr. Hyman offers a roadmap to respecting food as medicine."― Mehmet Oz, MD

"In the diet wars, no battle is more contentious than low-fat vegan versus high-fat paleo. Mark Hyman finds common ground with paleo-vegan (''Pegan''), a plant-based diet supplemented moderately with animal foods (as ''condi-meat''). Food offers a delicious recipe for restoring our health, as we care for the planet."
David Ludwig, MD, PhD, author of Always Hungry?

"Food and the way we produce and consume it is at the center of most of our world''s health, environmental, climate, economic, and even political crises. With his new book, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, Mark Hyman, MD, shows us that food is powerful medicine, and it contains information that speaks to our environment and our genes, programming our body with messages of health or illness."― Deepak Chopra

"Food is at the center of our well-being, and how we get our food is directly connected to the health of our planet. But we''re drowning in bewildering information and advice about what to eat. In his new book, Food, Mark Hyman, MD, breaks down all the science into practical advice about what to eat and what to avoid. This is a manual for how the food we eat can help us thrive."― Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive

"Our diets have a significant impact on our brain health and overall well-being. But in today''s world, there is so much confusion about what we should actually be eating. Food by Mark Hyman, MD, helps consumers cut through all of the nutrition confusion and provides a roadmap for leading a healthier life."― Maria Shriver, journalist and founder of The Women''s Alzheimer''s Movement

"When you are told to eat ''real food,'' what does that mean? And when you try to find it, where has it gone? What exactly has industrial agriculture done to our food supply and how does it affect our health and our environment? How can we be conscious consumers when we hit the grocery stores? What is the difference between grass-fed and organic? Does organic matter? And seriously, what the heck should we eat? Mark Hyman, MD, answers all of these important questions in Food. We don''t have to be confused about what to eat anymore. Get this book!"― Steven R. Gundry, MD, author of The Plant Paradox

"Most people know that a good diet is the cornerstone of health, but are confused about what to eat. Low-carb, low-fat, Paleo, plant-based, raw-food, vegan or vegetarian? In Food, Dr. Hyman cuts through this confusion and empowers readers with confidence and clarity about what to eat."― Chris Kresser, MS, LAc, author of The Paleo Cure

"Nutritional science can be confusing. Dr. Hyman makes it easy to understand and to implement, in an effort to empower you to simplify your life."― Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder Mercola.com, the most-visited natural health site

"Dr. Hyman sets the record straight. Your food decisions will become effortless, and you''ll be happier and healthier than ever."― Vani Hari, author of The Food Babe Way and founder of FoodBabe.com

"Good health starts at the end of your fork. With straightforward, thoughtful advice, Dr. Mark Hyman clears up the food confusion and shows you how to eat to heal and nourish your body, while also delighting your tastebuds."― JJ Virgin, celebrity nutrition and fitness expert and author of The Virgin Diet

"We have more knowledge about food and more options than ever, and yet, people are getting sicker and sicker because of lifestyle diseases. Where did we go wrong? How did we stray so far from real food and get to the point where most people are accustomed to boxed meals loaded with twenty unidentifiable ingredients and others are finding themselves lost in grocery stores, perplexed and bewildered to the point of panic, wondering what the heck they can and should eat? Food is the definitive guide for achieving food peace. It will show you that what we eat matters, but it doesn''t have to be that complicated. Mark Hyman is a masterful clinician and teacher. Let him show you the healing power of foods and make it easy, fun, and delicious."― Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder of Amen Clinics and author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life and Memory Rescue

"Dr. Mark Hyman''s Food offers a masterpiece of truth-telling, a subversive reproach to the industrial systems that threaten our very health -- and how each of us can flourish by making better food choices. This could be the most useful book you will read."
Daniel Goleman

"Dr. Hyman has eloquently addressed the most important nutrition question in his book Food. This book is essential for anyone who is looking for answers in how to use food to improve their functional health."― Jeffrey Bland, PhD, founder, Institute for Functional Medicine, author of The Disease Delusion

"For forty years, we''ve been told, ''if you don''t want fat on your body, don''t put fat into your body.'' So we cut back on fat from our diet only to become heavier than ever before. Mark Hyman cuts through the confusion, offering a practical (and delicious) way to lose weight for good. I recommend Eat Fat, Get Thin enthusiastically."
David Ludwig, MD, PhD, Professor, Harvard Medical School, and author of Always Hungry?

"Dr. Mark Hyman has provided an elegant insight into the confusing world of fat. Adding the right type of fat can be a powerful addition to any diet. More importantly, he provides the clinical markers you need to reach to be truly well regardless of your diet. While there is no one ideal diet for everyone, titrating your diet using his basic principles and by adjusting the fat content until you reach his markers of wellness makes this a must-read book for everyone concerned about their future health."
Dr. Barry Sears, author of The Zone

"Sixty percent of the solid weight of your brain is fat. If someone calls you a fat head say thank you! Eat Fat, Get Thin is a smart, well-researched, delicious roadmap to help you get and stay healthy, reverse illness, and optimize your brain. I highly recommend it."― Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder of Amen Clinics and author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

And he gives you the program to put it all to great use. It''s time to do a big course correction in how we understand the fat in our food, and the fat on our bodies. Mission accomplished! Eat Fat, Get Thin may be the most important and effective diet book of the decade. This is way more than a book about losing weight. It''s all about being the healthiest and most well nourished version of you. I couldn''t recommend this book more highly."― Marc David, founder of Institute for the Psychology of Eating and author of The Slow Down Diet and Nourishing Wisdom

Carrie A. Diulus, MD, Medical Director and Spine Surgeon, Crystal Clinic Spine Wellness Center

John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and co-founder of The Food Revolution Network

Pros: nicely organized, easy to understand, addresses all food groups and from different aspects (health, environment)
Cons: nothing new here, slightly contradictory at times

First off, I am a fan of Dr. Hyman. I think this book is well done and very informative, especially if you are new to reading about nutrition or current scientific findings on the subject. I do think it’s worth noting his diet is more along the lines of Paleo, so if you’re vegan you won’t like this book. Many times he states the pitfalls of vegan diets but he does talk extensively on the importance of vegetables. Most, if not all, of this information is available on his social media or through other paleo/Whole food blogs. Lastly, he contradicts some times. For example, stating you need 30g of protein 3x a day but then saying he only eats meat as a condiment, legumes rarely and plants should be 50-75% of our plate. I find it difficult to eat this much protein if limiting both legumes and meat and also focusing on low carb vegetables. Another example is the back and forth on beans in general, one paragraph they’re packed with nutrients, another paragraph they’re anti-nutrient and off just full of too many carbs. Another example, dairy: he goes back and forth on the pros and cons so much that you’re left still not knowing if you should eat it.

So that’s why I took off two stars: info already available online and it’s conflicting at times. Otherwise, it’s well done.
I recommend it if you aren’t vegan and if you are absolutely in the dark on current nutrition/food quality.

I have mixed thoughts on the quality of this book. For starters, I have been researching about nutrition for years now and just recently stumbled on Dr. Hyman and his methodology. I am also studying in medical school right now, so I feel I have some credibility when talking about this stuff. Let''s start with the good points.

This book is a great guide for those who are just starting out. It can be a bit overwhelming if you don''t know a lot of it, but he does a good job of making you realize that there are a lot of problems with the conventional American diet, especially the foods that the media and lobbying industries are marketing towards us. His biggest pro is the fact that he is preaching on many topics that have been (in my opinion) firmly established in the literature already. For instance, unnatural carbs (ex. grains, processed foods, etc.) are NOT needed at all, so avoiding these makes obvious sense. This is why diets like keto are so popular right now; people are ridding themselves of mostly carbs, which in turn drastically cuts down on the amount of calories one eats each day. Generally, he does a good job addressing the major food groups and gives a nice, easily-accessible list at the end of each chapter on what foods to avoid and to get more of. In a world of confusion on what to eat, Dr. Hyman does a nice job of mapping out a starting point by which to become healthier and more vibrant. Some of the main takeaways I got from his book are that organic/minimally processed foods are best (mostly because of the added chemicals in our foods); the messages by the government are very biased; and that moderation really is the key to a healthy lifestyle.

I do, however, have quite a lot of gripes with his content.

His book reeks of confirmation bias. I''m guessing that he selectively included studies from authors who he works with regularly to fit the narrative he wants to advocate. Obviously this happens with any writer, but it''s a problem when someone writes a no-nonsense guide to eating healthy and only includes information on the bias he has. The reality is that nutrition information is not set in stone, and many of the topics he talks about are non conclusive enough to give an affirmative answer. Some of the examples include:

1) Dairy: His main arguments for not consuming milk are that it''s inflammatory and that it leads to cancer. For me, I don''t have issues with digesting dairy at all, so that part of his argument is thrown out immediately. Second, his argument that dairy leads to cancer is non-conclusive. He pretty much says that research suggests there is a link between dairy and cancer, but that could be said for so many things. He doesn''t mention much about the benefits of dairy, including its protein content, natural sugars, healthy fats and vitamins, etc. Long story short, he doesn''t comprehensively convince me that dairy should be avoided. Yes, I will try to go organic when I can, but organic dairy is four times as expensive as non-organic dairy.

2) Beans: His main arguments for avoiding beans is that they are inflammatory and have high carbohydrates contents. Yes, these probably should be avoided if you''re diabetic or insulin-resistant (as should most carbs in that case). However, once again I don''t have issues digesting beans, and I find that their fiber content is world''s better than any other foods I eat. One serving of beans makes me regular for days. Apart from incredible amounts of fiber, beans have lots of protein, micronutrients, and are very satiating. What about the difference between canned beans and dry beans?

3) Grains: His main argument for avoiding grains are that they are just like sugar when digested. Yes, this is true. However, what about whole grains? He doesn''t talk enough about the difference between whole grains and highly processed grains. This makes it difficult to make a decision---should I avoid grains altogether or just processed ones?

Overall, his main weakness is that what he says isn''t clearly convincing. Yes, I will try to buy organic foods when possible and yes I will try to limit the carbs I consume. However, I don''t know necessarily what ultimate decision to make. These foods exist on a spectrum (ex. juice vs. natural fruit, ice cream vs. whole milk, etc.) What should I do? Furthermore, the type of diet he advocates is far out of reach for most people in society. It''s just too expensive and not convenient in the slightest. This book will absolutely help those who are eating only junk food, but it isn''t necessarily helpful for those are in-shape, workout regularly, don''t have the money and/or time, and want to live a moderate lifestyle. I wish he had spent more time telling me about the complete pros and cons of each food group and allowing me to make a decision on my own, but instead he picks a side (ex. beans are mostly bad) and goes with that one side. A good researcher discusses both sides on a topic, but unfortunately Dr. Hyman chose to ignore some of the information that would have weakened his arguments and bias.

Dr Mark Hyman is one of the few consistently accurate experts on evidence-based nutrition, who is a badly needed, fearlessly strong, voice against Big Food. And an even stronger voice advocating for the health of our country. I trust him because he does not shill fake information to make money. He is not a sell out. He’s the real deal.

His evidence-based reference section is 30 pages long, & about 19 references per page. Perfect for arguing science to those who insist that reading only headlines, & social media, are accurate sources of nutrition information.

It is clearly indexed on 12 specific food groups (meat, poultry/eggs, milk/dairy, fish/seafood, vegetables, fruit, fats/oils, beans, grains, nuts/seeds, sugar/sweeteners & beverages). In each food group he discusses the science, what the experts got right & wrong about the food group, what we still don’t know for sure, things you should know about the food group & what you should eat/avoid in that food group.

After those sections, he further patiently spells out what to keep out of your food. In case you haven’t already gotten the idea in Part II.

He goes into a 10 day detox diet, & provides a meal plan & fabulous recipes. His recipes are the best; They’re delicious & healthy. Tonight I’m making his herb-marinated chicken breasts.

I pre-ordered & got the book the day it dropped. Already I’ve highlighted & bookmarked half of it. I used it today @ work, while teaching my diabetes class, to answer a question about raw milk (p. 89).

Dr. Hyman, thank you for another great book. You keep out-doing yourself. And I use your Blood Sugar Solution recipes weekly.

Hyman starts out making sense and builds on this to the point of lacking common sense. Most people by the time he gets there must be into the book so much that they are willing to go along with what he says . When he starts quoting water usage numbers and talking about milk he starts out saying how bad it is and then talks about the benefits from the other side of his face. I''ve read a bunch of nutrition books and they are all the same; they start out sane and in the end they become so insane that you can''t eat anything anymore . His seafood claims are so extreme talking about mercury in fish that we might as well be making thermometers out of it instead of eating it . What ever happened to eating things in moderation? Hyman, Oz, McDuogal and all of the other nutrition guys show results from extremist programs that no one can afford or no one can meet the requirements of .In Hymans book on blood sugar you got really good results if you bought his supplements which incidentally ran on the average of 800 dollars a month . For that much we could all hire personal trainers . Not that all nutritionists are snake oil salesmen on the backs of covered wagons, like in the old west, because they do make some good points. Unfortunately there are more things stated on the edge of the ridiculous than valid points made - I feel . I say this because when you apply common sense it be comes self evident . Still I feel I''d be happier paying three times the cost of this book to get one with consistent information that has a point to be achieved rather than one with a lot of somewhat exaggerated claims and more consistent direction .In the end -- What the Heck should I Eat -- is a book that starts out with a good question and in the end answers itself with one word --nothing-- . Now that you have more anxiety than you know what to do with and are scared to eat anything ; that''s how you lose weight .

In “Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?” Dr Mark Hyman expertly guides the reader through the many nutrition pitfalls of modern life. Each chapter goes deep into a food group, starting with meat. Nutritional studies are mentioned and meticulously noted. He is as concerned about the environment as he is about human health, so environmental factors pop up in every food chapter, giving weight to the advice to eat better, not just for ourselves, but also for future generations and the health of the planet.

I have been reading a lot of new books on nutrition recently, so much of the information was not surprising to me. The author advises us to avoid all processed foods and industrial seed oils. He suggests to be wary of dairy, sugar and grains but to eat lots and lots of vegetables with grass fed meat, sustainable seafood and pasture-raised chicken & eggs. Even though I agree wholeheartedly with his advice, I don’t know if I can stop eating bread, or if I’ll ever have the willpower to give up dairy. I like vegetables but eating them three times a day is not going to be easy. I already cook most of my own food and avoid processed junk, I’m not sure how someone eating the standard American diet would manage to make such sweeping changes. This advice is also going to be tough for people on a strict budget. Veggies are affordable but high quality oils and fats are not, and grass fed meat is very expensive. It would be wonderful if we could all eat this way, but can we?

Regardless of the difficulties in implementing the nutrition advice in the book, it is still one of best I’ve found on the subject. It’s straightforward, easy to read, well-organized and meticulously researched. If you read one book about nutrition this year, make it this one.

The content is terrific It answers the question that health-seeking humans ask. It''s perfect - EXCEPT for the WTF ON EVERY PAGE HEADING, and THROUGHOUT You cannot avert your eyes. I am a Christian and totally object to the assault om my spiritual person being exposed to this constantly. Which means that swear word has entered my brain something like 1500 times in the course of reading the book! Outrageous!! So why buy it then? Because I needed the information. My solution? Was to PAY someone to cut out with paper clippers ALL the ETFs and replace with ''what'' - See photos.

With so much conflicting advice out there regarding foods that you should be eating and food that you shouldn''t I was attracted by the title of this book as it rang true and sounded like it intended to get to the bottom of it all. I like the way the book is organised with a summary after each chapter so you can remember what the key points were. I found many of the reports extremely interesting and learnt a lot of things I simply hadn''t known before. I have recommended the book to others, especially those who are struggling with their weight. A really useful go-to resource in my opinion and well worth a read. I will revert back to this book time and time again.

Another fantastic book by Dr Mark Hyman. This book is so detailed and referenced you will not be disappointed! The 21 day detox is so cleansing and has created a sharper mind and no digestive problems! I’ve also lost 7lbs- but the education and detail that Dr Mark Hyman has added has been so foundational. And there are even a bunch of very yummy recipes at the back of the book. I made the Shepherds pie last night which was delicious 🤤
