The Expertise You Require in the Layperson's Language
You Can Understand and Apply

Despite the vast amount and variety of foods available, you might not be getting the best nutrition. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that 38 percent of adults say they consume fruits less than once a day and nearly one quarter report not eating vegetables every day. In addition, more than 2 in 3 adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Yet many don't realize that they have a weight problem, and so they ignore health advice and warnings.

You might think that dietary changes made later in life will have little effect on your health. But changing dietary habits and losing weight in middle or even old age can significantly improve how you feel and can decrease your risk of chronic diseases.

To help you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle, two leading authorities have joined together to bring you the 2018 Nutrition and Weight Control White Paper.
