by Dr Giles Yeo
Why are we all getting fatter? Why are some people hungrier than others? And why don't diets work? In an age of misinformation and pseudo-science, the world is getting fatter and the diet makers are getting richer.
So how do we break this cycle that's killing us all? Drawing on the very latest science and his own genetic research at Cambridge University, Dr Giles Yeo has written the seminal 'anti-diet' diet book. Exploring the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense and toxic diet advice, and confronting the advocates of 'clean eating', Dr Giles translates his pioneering research into an engaging, must-read study of the human appetite. Inspiring and revelatory, Gene Eating is an urgent and essential book that will empower us all with the facts we need to establish healthy relationships with food - and change the way we eat
"It is rare to find a book, written by a world-class scientist, that is both informative and entertaining. Giles not only delves into the science of obesity but, with honesty and great precision, skewers many of the more foolish fad diets out there" Dr Michael Mosley, bestselling author of The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet
"Gene Eating busts myths and hones in on what you really need need to know. It's been a genuine help to me and I'm sure it will be to everyone who reads it" Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
"An excellent and engaging book, but also an important one. It is about time that a serious, respected academic provided a voice of reason' Anthony Warner aka The Angry Chef
