The Diet Delusion: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Loss and Disease by Gary Taubes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mainstream nutritional science has demonised dietary fat for 50 years yet hundreds of millions of dollars of research have failed to prove that eating a low-fat diet will help you live longer. Nutrition and obesity scientists have struggled to make sense of the paradox that obesity has become epidemic, that diabetes rates have soared and the incidence of heart disease has not declined over this period. Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution, The Zone and Sugar Busters are some of the books that have sold millions advocating low carbohydrate diets as the route to health, well-being and an ideal weight. A Big Fat Lie? makes sense of this paradox, and is essential reading for anyone trying to decide which diet - low fat or low carbohydrate - is truly the healthy diet, leading to optimal weight and health. The book debunks the popular misconceptions on health and takes a hard look at the corporate world of the diet industry.
