In the 2005 edition, Dr. Walter Willett will give the revised USDA food pyramid (scheduled to be released in early 2005) the same scrutiny and pinpoint where t he information is false. He updates and adds to his list of brand name foods that have hidden nutritional perils, as well as those that offer the good fats and carbohydrates he urges us to add to our diets.
He clarifies his explanations of nutrition lables to help us make sense of the often confusing information. In addition, he will include new research about trans fats and vitamins. Best of all, he translates his recommendations into a practical eating plan with menus and wonderful, easy-to-make recipes alive with the fresh (and increasingly popular) tastes of Mediterranean cooking.
