What should we be eating, and advising patients to eat?

What should we be eating? by Dr Andrew Weil

Andrew Weil does a fantastic job of summarising what we should be eating and why in this presentation at the College of Medicine entitled, ‘What should we be eating?’.

What should we be eating? Dr Andrew Weil

There won’t be any surprises here for those of you who have been staying up to date with advances in nutrition science (basically, the Mediterranean diet is good for you) but Dr Weil’s delivery is well thought out, succinct and persuasive – so whether this is new to you or revision, a very worthwhile 40 minutes. The next question after ‘What should we be eating?’ is, ‘How do we get patients to eat more healthily?’ Well, we know that’s a tough nut to crack, but what better place to start than to be persuaded that our growing understanding of what it means to eat healthily also embraces getting pleasure from food. Cheers to that!
