Penguin Putnam
Arigorous analysis of dramatic studies on therapeutic power of nutrition has led Dr. Oscar H. Franco and a team of acclaimed researchers to determine that substituting certain foods in place of the leading medical "cocktail" for preventing cardiovascular disease yields identical benefits. As reported in the British Medical Journal, they concluded that daily consumption of seven specific foods could result, on average, in an increase in total life expectancy of 6.6 years for men and 4.8 years for women.

Dr. Ralph Felder, a physician and a master-trained chef, has now taken these groundbreaking studies out of the laboratory and put them into the kitchen. Using his inspired yet easy-toprepare recipes and creative menu plans, along with a few simple lifestyle guidelines, anyone can add healthy years to his or her life, enjoy-with few restrictions-a wide range of delicious and satisfying foods, and lose weight safely and easily, while indulging in goodies like chocolate and nuts.
