Written by Holly Clegg, Curtis Chastain, MD; Edited by Holly Clegg, Virginia Jackson

For Guy’s Guide to Eating Well, Clegg joined forces with men’s wellness expert Dr. Curtis Chastain to merge backgrounds in the culinary arts and preventative medicine.

Guy’s Guide to Eating Well makes the perfect gift for any man who finds himself in the kitchen or at the grill from time to time. Even kitchen warriors can learn from the information compiled in the new men’s cookbook.
