Why We Eat (Too Much): The New Science of Appetite [9780241400524]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A practical, accessible guide to understanding the diet myth and the secret to lasting weight loss.

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.

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.

'Articulate, clear, a joy to read, this is a book that really needed written' Joanna Blythman, author of Swallow This


AUTHOR: Dr Andrew Jenkinson is a consultant surgeon with a special interest in advanced laparoscopic, or keyhole surgery. He is part of an expert team developing advances in gastrointestinal (stomach and bowel) surgery at University College Hospital in Bloomsbury, central London.
