.....so I can stop trying to explain to people how I am finally losing the weight!! My friends are not scientists and I lose my patience very quickly trying to explain. They think its another fad diet (even tho I'm a biologist...I dont DO fad diets.) I am going to buy quite a few copies of this book. THANKS GARY!!

I can't help but feeling that my impression of him as a missionary to expose the bad science in diet, is somehow undermined by releasing a book a couple of days after Christmas! A cynic would say that he has lost his halo as a saviour, and started to cash in on people's desire to lose weight just after Christmas.

However, if page 1 says, "Do not buy a subscription to a gym in the new year because exercise will only make you fatter", then my faith will be restored!

Hopefully this will sell better in the UK than The Diet Delusion (which was probably the most ground-breaking book in the history of our understanding of diet). I knew a lot of this stuff when I was studying O level biology (how different macronutrients were processed), but I was swept along with the 'fat is bad' message of the early 1980s like everyone else.

If anyone gets to hear of him giving a talk in the UK, post a message here as I'd love to see/meet him and shake his hand.

You might like to read "Trick and Treat" by Barry Groves. The message you want to see about joining a gym may not be on Page 1, but it's in there!
