An indispensable, groundbreaking look at the way our genetic makeup influences our relationship with food.
In an age of misinformation and pseudo-science, the world is getting fatter and the diet makers are getting richer. How do we break this cycle? Yeo explores the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense, detoxifying diet advice, and confronting the advocates of clean eating. He cuts straight to the data-driven facts: only by understanding the physiology of our bodies, their hormonal functions, and their caloric needs can we empower ourselves to make better decisions, and achieve healthy relationships with food, our bodies, and our weight. -- adapted from jacket
