Why We Eat (Too Much): The New Science of Appetite (Hardback)

Synopsis

Modern nutrition has failed us. We have more choice in the food we eat than ever before but less quality. We endlessly diet, yet are hungrier and fatter than ever. So where did it all go wrong, and what can we do?


We've all heard the golden rule: eat less, exercise more and you'll lose weight. But what if it wasn't that simple? For over two decades, bariatric surgeon Dr Andrew Jenkinson has treated thousands of people who have become trapped in the endless cycle of dieting. Why We Eat (Too Much), combines case studies from his practice and the new science of metabolism to illuminate how our appetite really works.


Debunking the great myths of the body, and systematically explaining why dieting is counter-productive, this unflinching book investigates every aspect of nutrition. From the difference between good and bad fats to the impact of genes and genetic mutation on our weight and what happens to our hormones long after a diet ends, Dr Jenkinson explores the fields of agriculture, pharma, anthropology and medicine to uncover the truth behind our bad food habits and the escalating obesity crisis.


Why We Eat (Too Much) is a deep dive into the new science of appetite and how to reframe our relationship to food, for good.
