Dr. Weil (pronounced "while") bravely criticizes many of the major diet books on the market, and backs up his admonitions with science. It explains why you should not torture yourself with the popular low fat or low carbohydrate diets. Although the explanation of the chemistry might be difficult to understand for some people, the recipes are easy to follow.  In this book, there are also tips for eating out and shopping for food and a wondrous appendix with dietary recommendations for people with health concerns.
