Abstract:
"NY Times best-selling author Dr. Michael Roizen reveals how the food choices you make each day--and when you make them--can affect your health, your energy, your sex life, your waistline, your attitude, and the way you age. What if eating two cups of blueberries a day could prevent cancer? If drinking a kale-infused smoothie could counteract missing an hour's worth of sleep? When is the right time of day to eat that chocolate chip cookie? And would you actually drink that glass of water if it meant skipping the gym? This revolutionary guide reveals how to use food to enhance our personal and professional lives--and increase longevity to boot. What to Eat When is not a diet book. Instead, acclaimed internist Michael Roizen and certified physician Michael Crupain offer readers choices that benefit them the most--whether it's meals to help them look and feel younger or snacks that prevent diseases--based on the science that governs them"-- Provided by publisher.

Author Notes

Dr. Michael Roizen was born January 7, 1946 in Buffalo, New York. He is an anesthesiologist and Chair of anesthesiology, critical care, and pain management at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Roizen received his undergraduate degree from Williams College and his M.D. from the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Roizen's interest and research in longevity and nutrition led him to create the "RealAge" concept for which he is well-known. He later began writing the "You" series books with Dr. Mehmet C. Oz which have been New York Times bestsellers. Dr. Roizen has given over 1200 lectures to professional medical groups and can often be seen on the Oprah Winfrey show, Today Show, Good Morning America, and fundraising specials with PBS. His latest book You (Raising Your Child) made the New York Times best seller list for 2010.

Library Journal Review

Internist and anesthesiologist Roizen, author of nine best-selling books (e.g., You: The Owner's Manual; RealAge), teams up with preventive medicine specialist Michael Crupain and health and science writer Ted Spiker to present a 31-day eating plan that complements our circadian rhythms, the 24-hour fluctuations in our bodies tied to the sleep-wake cycle. They suggest that eating in a way that complements our internal rhythms helps our bodies utilize and metabolize food most effectively. In addition to outlining a meal plan and discussing the science behind it, the authors offer a series of "choose your own adventure" chapters that introduce a different emotion, health condition, or situation and what foods best address them. This arrangement makes for a practical guide that can be consulted time and again, as individuals face the challenges of everyday life. If there's one weakness, it's the surprising absence of recipes to support the prescribed "When Way" lifestyle. ­VERDICT This well-organized, accessible guide to healthful eating by two well-known ­medical consultants, both affiliated with the Dr. Oz Show, is sure to be widely popular with health-conscious readers.-Crystal Renfro, Kennesaw State Univ., Marietta, GA © Copyright 2019.
