Dr John Whyte, FDA, AARP New American Diet
Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living, Interview Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art Of Living series, my guest today, Dr John Whyte is a popular physician and writer who has been communicating to the public about health issues for nearly two decades. Dr Whyte, an MD, who still sees patients, is probably best known in his role at the US Food & Drug Administration, where he works closely with health care professionals, patients, patient advocates, and others involved in the use of medicines and educational programming for both a medical and a lay audience.
Today on the show, Dr Whyte discusses, among other things, do avocados contain the “good” fat or the “bad” fat? Are coconuts healthful this week? As for your daily coffee, is it a virtue or a vice? And did you hear that barbecuing could increase your cancer risk? Confused? No wonder. There’s a lot of murky, ever-changing information out there about nutrition and what’s healthy to eat and what’s bad for you.
The Not Old Better Show welcomes Dr. John Whyte, who is ready to bring some clarity to the subject. The board-certified physician and author of the best-selling AARP New American Diet: Lose Weight, Live Longer guides you through the latest scientific information and explains what foods can help you prevent disease and live longer, and which foods might increase your risk of certain diseases like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
The session begins with a fun quiz to test your knowledge of nutrition, and you’ll head home with useful handouts and recipes to help you put Whyte’s insights and information into practice.
Dr Whyte will be appearing at the Smithsonian Associates program, Thursday, August 3, 2017, Ripley Center, Washington, DC. Click HERE for more information and ticket details:
