My next book is nearing completion!

I am thrilled to announce that my next book is finally being finalized and is set to be published this December. It has grown into the single largest research project I’ve ever taken on. I took a deep dive into the weight loss literature and found that even “simple” questions like whether you should eat breakfast or skip it, or whether it’s better to exercise before or after meals, turned into major, thousand-article research projects. If our nose-to-the-grindstone research team had trouble sifting through the stacks, a practicing physician would have no chance and the public would be totally lost. But that’s what we do at We comb through tens of thousands of studies a year so you don’t have to. As always, all the proceeds I receive from the sales of all my books is donated to charity. Keep your eye out for the preorder announcement soon!


Congrats to our translators!

After years of hard work and dedication, every NutritionFacts video now has Hebrew and Portuguese subtitles available (in addition to English), thanks to our amazing volunteers. Our newest videos also have a wide variety of available languages such as Spanish, German, and French, but we’re still chipping away at translating our older videos.
