How to follow a healthy Mediterranean diet plan

Just Tell Me What to Eat! takes the guesswork out of eating well. It emphasizes delicious, hearty meals, a healthy Mediterranean-style diet, high-quality calories, and home cooking whenever possible. When you follow Dr. Harlan’s basic food rules and balanced recipes, you really can eat:

  • Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp and Broccoli

Praise for Just Tell Me What to Eat!

“Just Tell Me What to Eat isn’t just the book my patients have been asking me for, it’s the book I’ve been wanting to find for my patients. I marvel at the simple and tasty approach to meal preparation that Chef Harlan so clearly articulates. And Doctor Harlan lays out the choices for a healthy lifestyle without ever bending the rules of physiology – I’ve never read a book about food choices that was based so firmly on the facts.”

Cam Patterson, MD, MBA, Chancellor of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences

“Apparently my early ‘Galloping Gourmet TV Shows’ had an impact on 8 year old Tim.

I’m glad we have both grown up with the idea that we can delight and do less harm. Good science is always moving us onward. Tim does a masterful job of matching good, up to the moment, science with good old fashioned taste.

It’s a book written for such a time as this.”

Graham Kerr, The Galloping Gourmet

“‘Real food’ is at the center of this book. Dr. Harlan bypasses all the conventional fad diets and related confusing nutritional advice by combining his medical expertise with the mind of a chef. The result is a simple, down-to-earth tool for better health.”

Karl J. Guggenmos, WACS Global Master Chef and Dean of Culinary Education, Johnson & Wales University
