I love Zoe Harcombe. I always devour all the refreshing articles, interviews and commentary I come across. She's such an unrestrained thinker and is so thorough in her research that her unconventional views stand up robustly and unshakeable against the inevitable indignant guffaws of the low-fat mainstream views - a maintream which really does seem to have got it wrong. I was lucky enough to meet Zoe once, and her husband Andy, and I want to be like him!
There are several great things about this book. First, it works. Second, as others have commented, it is a very digestible format so people can just get on with it. Third, it's for any men, not just fat men. I combine her eating philosophy with lots of exercise and it works so well. I am not overweight and not looking to "diet", but I want to be healthy and eat in a way that makes sense long term. This is an easy ticket to adjusting the way you eat and concentrating on combinations of foods that have made me feel healthier, stronger, more energetic, less hungry - because Zoe seems to understand better than anybody how the human body really responds to what you put in it.
It's not crazy, it's grounded in science and effective and it's easy for all men to try out. Well done Zoe, you've taken your great ideas another step closer to getting the appreciation they deserve.
