Dr. Gourmet

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D."Eating well and eating healthy is the same thing," says Dr. Tim Harlan, aka "Dr. Gourmet," who discovered his love of food long before embarking on a successful career as a physician. By the age of 18, Harlan was managing his first restaurant and had learned cooking techniques from some of the finest chefs. He subsequently opened an intimate French Bistro at age 22.

Returning to school to pursue a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Dr. Harlan found his way to medicine. While completing his degree at Emory University School of Medicine, he began writing about the clear link between food and health, blending his extensive knowledge of food and nutrition with his medical expertise.

On television, "Dr. Gourmet" has been the on-air expert for the Food Network show "Cooking Thin" and host of the DIY Network show "AskDIY." His 2002 public broadcast program "The Dr. Gourmet Show" earned an Emmy Award for excellence in medical programming. As a recognized expert, Dr. Harlan has also appeared on KWGN and KMGH in Denver, WJXT in Jacksonville, KNTV in San Francisco, KPIX in San Francisco, WTMJ and WITI in Milwaukee, and WLS and WGN in Chicago, IL, demonstrating how to cook healthy meals. In addition, he has been featured on CNN, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal as well as other top-tier media outlets. How to Contact Dr. Gourmet.

Teaching patients that eating great food is the easiest path to health, Dr. Harlan launched as the definitive evidence-based source for diet, health, wellness and lifestyle information. His books, It's Heartly Fare and Hand On Heart, guide readers on what they can eat for optimum health.

His newest book, Just Tell Me What to Eat! was released by Da Capo Lifelong Books in June 2011. For anyone tired of restricted meals and unappetizing strategies (who really wants to avoid pasta for the rest of their life?), Just Tell Me What to Eat! is a 6-week meal plan that takes the guesswork out of eating well. It emphasizes delicious, hearty meals, a Mediterranean-style diet, high-quality calories, and home cooking whenever possible. Find out more about Just Tell Me What to Eat!
