Pierce's Truth Foundation published the separate guide along with Zagat, featuring Pierce's favorite healthy dishes at Zagat's Most Popular restaurants in Boston, plus advice for eating healthy when dining out, fitness tips, even his pre-game meal.

The newest Foundation initiative, titled The Truth on Health, aims to curb childhood obesity and encourage healthy choices and activities. The Zagat guide will be part of an overall healthy-living campaign that will include events and appearances by Pierce to help further his initiative.

"In order to lead a successful life you need to live a healthy one," says Pierce. "I am thrilled to have collaborated with Zagat Survey to highlight ways for Bostonians to eat healthy while dining out. Even when I go out to eat - and I eat out all the time - I try to make healthy decisions."

The guides will be pocket-size to allow for easy reference when dining out, taking notes, or planning a work-out. It also has helpful website links and suggestions for parents to share with their kids. Information on where to get the guides will be available on www.paulpierce.net.
