What we've been told about our diet has been all wrong. In fact, diet culture can actually drive up your weight in the long-term.
For over two decades, weight loss surgeon Dr Andrew Jenkinson has treated thousands of people who have become trapped in the endless cycle of dieting. Combining case studies from his practice and the new science of metabolism, Why We Eat (Too Much) debunks the great myths of the body, and systematically explains why dieting is counter-productive. An unflinching book, it investigates every aspect of nutrition, including:
1. The difference between good and bad fats
2. 'Set weight points' that are unique to everyone
3. The impact of genes and genetic mutation on our weight
4. What happens to our hormones long after a diet ends
It's time to put an end to the confusion and understand our bodies better than ever before.
'Articulate, clear, a joy to read, this is a book that really needed written' Joanna Blythman, author of Swallow This
'Highly persuasive . . . a radical approach to weight loss' Sunday Times
'Debunks the myths around dieting and weight-loss' Telegraph
Must read book. It really goes in depth about the reasons people eat what they eat and weigh what they weigh.
I wish I could shake the author’s hand. Thank you for the book
Write a review is an option. I could not ignore writing a review as this book is essential if you want to understand how your body works and how you can stop being obese. I am 45 yo, biologist and binge eater. Had gastric bypass surgery 2 and half years ago and I am stuck on my weight. In fact I put 10 kilograms on since lockdown ( COVID 19). Understanding that I don’t need diets but know what I should eat, how, when and why.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone but it should be read by people with eating disorders before going under surgical procedures
Thank to the author. I wish I could shake his hand.
