If your New Year's resolution includes becoming a healthier, more powerful, and slimmer you, we are here to help you do just that. We look forward to 2012 as the beginning of another year to help propel the rapidly growing movement towards healthy eating and cooking as a means to better health and potential weight loss with credible, reliable, and, practical information about the World's Healthiest Foods and a New Better Way of Cooking. As one Reader wrote in her e-mail the whfoods.org website is just one click away from providing you with all the tools you need to get healthy— and it's all free of charge!

Every week the whfoods.org website can help you take charge of your own health by providing you with:

A New Better Way of Cooking

Low cooking temperatures and decreased cooking times are the key to the New Better Way of Cooking methods. Add to that quick and easy recipes that taste great and you will be inspired to cook more of your meals at home— a statistically proven way to improve your health and help you lose weight. The New Better Way of Cooking saves you time and money as well as nutrients. And focusing on a better way of cooking vegetables is a great way to jump start meeting your Healthiest Way of Eating goals as most of them provide you with the greatest amount of nutrition for the least number of calories. The Healthiest Way of Eating and New Better Way of Cooking help enhance your energy levels and memory, prevent colds and flu, improve your skin, enhance the way you look and feel, reduce your risk of heart disease, and maintain an optimum weight.

Updating Food Articles

Keeping the website current and up-to-date is an ongoing endeavor here at whfoods and 2012 will be no exception. We continue to add new articles to the website placing special emphasis on the continued updating of each of the World's Healthiest Foods. Extensive research is continuously ongoing to update the website and provide thousands of scientific references to support the posted material.

All About Organic Foods Updated

As organic foods continue to rise in popularity it is sometimes not clear what is considered "organic" and what is not. In order to provide you with the most current and up-to-date information on organic foods, why they are good for you, and how they are defined we have placed much time and effort into updating our article "Everything You Need to Know About Organic Foods." The new information is simplified and reflects the latest updates to the USDA organic food regulations.

Enjoy our New Book: Weight Loss Success â€" Without Dieting

Inspired by Readers who have written us about how they improved their health and lost weight at the same time (by adopting a Healthiest Way of Eating) George presents a new way to approach weight loss without dieting and enjoying satisfying foods with an emphasis on vegetables. Released in January of 2012 it is a beautiful hardcover book that is a revised version of our Healthy Weight Loss e-book, with updated information and new menu plans. We hope it will meet with satisfaction the many requests we received for a hardcover edition of my weight loss book.

2011 in Retrospect

2011 was a great year for us. Our successes are best expressed in the hundreds of letters we received from Readers:

We started by doing one week of the Healthiest Way of Eating Plan as an experiment. About three days into the Plan my husband and I both noticed that we were feeling absolutely terrific and sleeping better, etc. And at some point, we just basically decided that at 41 and 48 we needed to get very serious about changing the way we regularly eat. Lots of our friends are eating no carbohydrates or no wheat, or no animal products, which all works but did not strike us as particularly safe or sustainable ways of changing one's diet. Your system seems to be the sanest and safest way to accomplish our goals.

The major benefit of the Plan was there was no success/failure dynamic. Once you understand how it works, you can just pick up where you left off. Because you feel so great on the Plan, that bad cycle of deprivation and reward that most diets set up doesn't happen, Foods that are not very nutritious don't really seem like much of a reward.

I've always been pleasantly surprised by how delicious your dishes are. We love the black bean chili and the salmon recipes. I'm especially very happy with the huge variety of salad recipes on the site. Haven't really had anything that we didn't enjoy.

We've definitely made the transition to the Healthiest Way of Eating as our NORMAL way of eating, hopefully for the rest of our lives. It means so much to me that you have given me an easy roadmap to get a handle on my family's health. - Silvia

I just found your website and I am so excited! THANK YOU a million times over! You have given a HUGE boost to our lifelong quest to eat the highest quality diet we could afford - and also swallow! With your cooking guidelines to retain nutrients, and conveniently shortened cooking times, a whole new array of healthy taste sensations is beckoning. I purchased your book last night and have already shared the website with several others, who were so pleased to find you, too. - GE

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences with the world. I am always researching and looking for healthier ways to eat, and when I came across your site, I was thrilled. Often times, healthy recipes contain items that are hard to find in local grocery stores, however, you have created simple easy recipes with ingredients that are easily available to everyone. I really like the weekly bulletin AND the daily recipes. They are very helpful and informational. Thank you! - Danielle

I have been enjoying your website for years now and have spread the word concerning healthy eating, helping to educate family members and friends by leading them to this site for their own education on healthy eating. This is a powerful website, filled with vitally important information that is such a pleasure to learn about. I love this site and come to it often. I hope that you will please continue to provide this site as, what I believe to be, a critically vital educational site. This is the best healthy food website I've ever seen, by a long shot. Very, very detailed technical information and the latest research on every food listed. This is brilliant, and I love it! Keep up the great work!! - LL

Thank you George for doing what you do. You raise my faith in humanity and it is people like you who are changing the world in a positive way. You may never know the ripple effect of your endeavors. So I am just reminding you that there are people like me out there who appreciate you and in turn will be more likely to create great acts of kindness as well. - Dottie

I have never found a better site when it comes to ingredients and reasons why foods are healthy. Your site is the only site of its kind. It lists all the ingredients, is easily understood, and provides all of the reasons a food is beneficial. - LE
