For many people, knowing what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat is a puzzle they’ve lost all hope of solving. Anyone who has tried to make a commitment to healthy eating knows the obstacles: the dizzying array of choices in grocery stores and restaurants; the crazy, on-the-go schedules of every member of the family; the relentless hype and marketing surrounding fatty and sugary snack foods; and the habits, traditions and humongous portion sizes that fuel powerful appetites. In this new television special, nutritionist and #1 New York Times best-selling author Joy Bauer explores and explains these serious health issues in a fun and friendly format — all with a step-by-step action plan.

A nutritionist for close to three decades, Joy Bauer has helped her patients learn the proper foods for losing weight and gaining health. Her motto, “Life is hard, food should be easy,” becomes a reality as she motivates people to take the first steps towards better health and vitality.

Using real-life examples of people and situations from her extensive patient population, Joy provides compelling information on powerful (and delicious!) foods to help manage, treat, and in some instances even reverse common health conditions. Among the food remedies explored in the program are:

• Pistachios lower cholesterol

• Kale enhances brain power and may protect memory 

• Ginger and turmeric help alleviate arthritis aches and pains 

• Strawberries (and spinach!) help fight off wrinkles and promote a radiant complexion

• Pumpkin helps lower blood pressure

• Black beans increase energy and help manage type 2 diabetes
