Dr. Greger homes in on the optimal criteria to enable weight loss and considers how different foods affect our health and longevity. He lays out the key ingredients of the ideal weight-loss diet and explains how factors such as calorie density, the insulin index, and the impact of foods on our gut microbiome can help us add or drop pounds. Dr. Greger shows us how evidence-based eating is crucial to our success. (For all of How Not to Diet's thousands of scientific sources, see How Not to Diet Citations.)
