This review is from: Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It (Vintage) (Paperback)
Depressing reading, cos being a lard ass I was hoping that I could carry on eating exactly the same as ever and "Think myself thinner" Not a new concept, carbs especially sugar are villains of the piece, One day I popped into costa coffee whilst reading this absolutely trashed a £2.50 cup of coffee thinking I should avoid the sugar, choosing the sweetner option "Sweet n Low" tasted crap, and when I checked the ingredients, the largest ingredient was a form of sugar that had just been mentioned in the previous chapter. So some points of interest, esp processed food industry/marketing, also about the evolution of human physiology versus food group intake, but I can only come to the conclusion that if I wish to be a healthy weight, I must exist exclusively on tree or tree related food.......except of course any fruit....just bark, wood and leaves......
