"Debunks the myths...and looks at what actually happens in your body when you eat" * Woman's Own * "This informative book could challenge the way you think about food...in-depth but interesting" * Health and Fitness * "Scholarly yet readable deconstuction of dieting...the most comprehensive book on the subject" * Good Book Guide * "Read this, and you'll be astonished at the shaky foundations of dietary medicine and health advice...
