Summary
Why are we all getting fatter? Why are some people hungrier than others? Why, despite all of the latest advice, is obesity on the rise? And why don't diets work? In an age of misinformation and pseudoscience, the world is getting fatter and the diet makers are getting richer. So how do we break this cycle that's literally killing us all? Drawing on the very latest science, and his own genetic research at Cambridge University, Dr. Giles Yeo has written the seminal 'antidiet' diet book. Exploring the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense, detoxifying diet advice and confronting the advocates of clean eating, Giles translates his pioneering research into an engaging, mustread study of the human appetite. In a posttruth world, Gene eating cuts straight to the datadriven facts. Only by understanding the physiology of our bodies, their hormonal functions and their caloric needs can we overcome the misinformation of modern dieting trends, empower us to make better decisions, and achieve healthy relationships with food, our bodies and our weight. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and fascinating detail, Gene eating is an urgent and essential book that will change the way we eat
