A decent scientifically valid book on healthy eating is Walter Willet's "Eat, drink and be healthy" It's a bit heavy going compared to the more popular "popular" diet books. That's how it roll with stuff that's valid.

Thank you. I ordered the book.

One thing that bothers me, though, is that it was published in 2005.
Is it up-to-date on the more recent nutritional research?

I waded through many of the reviews on Amazon, and some claim that Willet's views on fats, e.g., are outdated. But I couldn't always tell whether the reviewers were referring to the older (2001) edition.

In any event, I look forward to reading the book. Meanwhile, if this book IS outdated re the fat story, I'd appreciate hearing about that.

Thanks again.
