3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the feint hearted, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Diet Delusion (Paperback)
This book is very hard going, repetitive, not for the feint hearted. The style is not to the point or succinct. I had to read, and re read much of it often as the author gets lost in his desire to enlighten us. It could be much shorter if set out better and so much easier to read and understand.

I agree with the content, I trained in Food Science, Nutrition and Dietetics; refined carbohydrates and hidden sugar in processed foods and drinks are the cause of obesity and health issues, not fats, saturated or otherwise, tho beware transfats. The book tries to show how we are all conned, especially by the medical profession and those who should have our welfare as a priority, instead we are misled because ultimately it comes down to money - made by "big pharma", sugar companies and producers of foodstuffs laced with sugar and other refined carbohydrate.

Tuabes other book "Why We Get Fat" is much better, as is Dr Malcolm Kendricks "The Great Cholesterol Con".
