"People don't need us to tell them to eat less and exercise more," said Dr. Donald Hensrud of the Mayo Clinic. "They know that."
Hensrud is the medical editor-in-chief of The Mayo Clinic Diet. For years, the Mayo Clinic staff resisted the word "diet." It seemed too temporary, but since most people use the word "diet" when searching for information on healthy eating, the Mayo staff decided to use the word in their newest book, which hit store shelves this month.
