Confused About What To Eat?

Published by at 1:16 pm under Health,Mediterranean Diet,Patient Education

The preliminary 2015 US Dietary Guidelines, released last month generated a lot of publicity and confusion. Dr Walter Willet, Chair of the the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), along with  Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the school and Meir Stampfer also of HSPH  wrote a column  in the  Boston Globe addressing the confusing messages that occur in our media.  It is worth a read. Despite what you might think, there is a great deal of consensus and good science on what we should eat for optimal health. It is a menu that includes fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The Harvard School of Public Health has a web page Nutrition Source that is an accurate and very reliable resource on food and nutrition.
