Synopsis

THE #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER



*AS SEEN ON ITV'S THIS MORNING AND BBC MORNING LIVE**



The groundbreaking bestseller from Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth and creator of the COVID Symptom Study app.



'A hugely enjoyable and critical look at common food myths' Michael Mosley



Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?

Is there any point in counting calories?

Is there any evidence that coffee is bad for us?



Through his pioneering research, Professor Tim Spector busts these and many other myths about food. Spoon-Fed explores the scandalous lack of good science behind many diet plans, official recommendations and miracle cures, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food - not just for our health as individuals, but for the future of the planet.



With a new preface by the author



'Illuminating and so incredibly timely' Yotam Ottolenghi



'Will actually help you decide what to add to your next grocery shop' Bee Wilson, Guardian



'This book should be available on prescription' Felicity Cloake
