Where mainstream nutritional science has demonised dietary fat for 50 years, 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 an epidemic, that diabetes rates have soared and the incidence of heart disease has not declined despite the fact that society is more diet and health aware today than generations ago. "The Diet Delusion" is an in-depth, scientific, groundbreaking examination of what actually happens in your body as a result of what you eat, rather than what the diet industry might have you believe happens and is essential reading for anyone trying to decide which diet - low-fat or low-carbohydrate - is truly the healthy diet. For years we have been deluded by the dieting industry. Now it's time to find out the truth.

About the Author:

Gary Taubes is a journalist and author whose books on controversial science include Nobel Dreams and Bad Science, a New York Times notable book of the year. He is the only journalist to have won the National Association of Science Writer's prestigious Science-in-Society award three times.

Review:

"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... First off, I was struck by how little science does know, what we take for established fact if often partial truth at best. Conjectures are, apparently, made on imperfect research... compelling reading" * Sue Baker, Publishing News * "This book is a most important contribution to Mankind - really an historic book" * Jeremy Stone, longtime president, The American Federation of Scientists *
