At 35, after eating too much of the Standard American Diet (SAD, isn't it?), Dr. La Puma had become SADly paunchy. So he decided to research the science of nutrition while also going to culinary school to learn to cook. He created the revolutionary new concept of "culinary medicine" - recipes, foods, and meals that prevent or control common health conditions without sacrificing restaurant-quality taste.

In "Eat And Cook Healthy! With Dr. John La Puma," viewers will learn to stock the medicine chest in your kitchen, use the doctor inside of you, and create dishes that give you lifesaving benefits and truly dazzling flavor. Dr. La Puma is the author of the New York Times bestselling book "Chef MD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine."
