"Darya is my favorite kind of scientist--she finds the simple in the complex, the beauty in the chaos. If anyone will make you love (and rediscover) food, it's her." -- Tim Ferriss "In Foodist, Darya Pino gives the most sensible advice I've read about attaining and maintaining healthy weight without dieting. Her science-based approach tells you how to enjoy real food, make the best food choices, and not deny yourself the pleasures of eating. I recommend this book." -- Andrew Weil, M.D.
