  About The Book

Raise your score, lower your weight and radically improve your health! A scientifically proven, fail-safe system for getting the healthy body you always wanted--from the dream team of Dr. Walter Willett--the head of the Nutrition Department at Harvard Medical School and bestselling author of Eat, Drink and Be Healthy--and Mollie Katzen, author of the four-million-copy bestselling Moosewood Cookbook

Eat, Drink and Weigh Less offers a simple promise: if you can raise your Body Score, you can lower your weight and radically improve your health. A quiz at the beginning of the book helps readers determine their Body Score; the chapters that follow explain easy dietary and behavioral steps readers can take to improve their scores. While the concept is simple, the science behind it is not. It represents years of top research conducted by Dr. Walter Willett, the head of Harvard School of Public Health's Department of Nutrition, including the famous Nurses' Health Study. This study scored each of its over 84000 participants on food choices, exercise schedule and body mass-resulting in a number which accurately determined the nurse's risk of heart disease. Now, for the first time, Dr. Willett has teamed up with mega-bestselling cookbook author Mollie Katzen to adapt a similar, much easier scoring system to create a user-friendly diet plan with fail-safe results. If you can raise your score, you are guaranteed to lower your weight and improve your health-all while eating delicious, easy-to-prepare foods. Eat, Drink and Weigh Less is rich in fresh fruit, vegetables, and moderate amounts of fat and protein in a delicious, abundant series of menus that are a joy to follow. Eat, Drink and Weigh Less includes over 100 recipes, as well as three different levels of diet-a full six week plan, a no-cook plan, and a 10-point beginners plan. A true diet "dream team," Dr. Willett and Mollie Katzen join proven scientific fact and delicious recipes for a completely new way of eating that can be incorporated into any lifestyle-with guaranteed results!
