Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health
Death by Food Pyramid: How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health
Price: £11.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice balanced book, lacks a little focus, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed the opening chapters, that describes the history of the food pyramid and the diet heart hypothesis. After that I found book bounced around somewhat, trying to cover too much ground in not enough detail.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's actually just a really thin pamphlet., 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is actually just 18 pages, padded out with another 8 pages of empty log-book.

It's probably my fault for not reading the product description, but I expected a book on Westman's insight into ketosis, instead I got what is basically an advice leaflet for his patients. It's something that I'd expect to download off a website for free.

I admire Westman and his work as an advocate of low-carb greatly, but this isn't worth the money.
