Decades of peer-reviewed research show decisively that feet (physical activity), forks (what we eat), and fingers (whether or not they hold cigarettes) are the master levers of medical destiny, exerting an unmatched influence on health outcomes.

While both exercise and tobacco use are readily understood, diet change is a substantially more complicated behavior. Many people have questions like “What is an ‘optimal’ diet?” “How significant are its effects on health?” and “How capable is the average person or household of adopting such a diet - or even approximating it?”

In this lecture, Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP, FACLM, founding director of Yale University's Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, and current President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, will explain that diet has the potential to count among the most potent of modern medicines, if only the best available advice on the topic were a bit easier to swallow.
