A fascinating and original look at the impact of food on our bodies underpinned by cutting-edge research (Michael Mosley)
Completely fascinating (Sheila Dillon)
The Diet Myth is fascinating, and I'm now obsessed with microbes! (Nigella Lawson)
Ground-breaking (Bee Wilson)
Tim Spector carefully explains that we are NOT what we eat, but rather that our trillions of microbial inhabitants have a thing or two to say. Lucidly written, The Diet Myth provides a first-class education about the conjunction of our microbes and our health (Martin Blaser, author of MISSING MICROBES)
I don't read diet books and I certainly never plug them, but The Diet Myth is a worthy exception that provides new insight into why we should think twice about what we put in our mouths (Dr Mark Porter THE TIMES)
It's not often that a book changes my life in a mere three chapters...given my usual reluctance to jump on any nutritional bandwagon, I reckon this makes Tim Spector's work a rather compelling read. It's truly eye-opening stuff, and we owe it to ourselves and the 100 trillion friends inside our bodies to read this book (Felicity Cloake LITERARY REVIEW)
Combining...fast-paced science with medical self-help...[A] model of clear, accessible and entertaining science writing (FINANCIAL TIMES)
Witty, well-written and broad-ranging, littered with fascinating factoids and case studies. Spector thoughtfully explains the strengths and weaknesses of the available evidence, drawing on research on gut microbes as well as his long-running studies on the genetics of twins and his own often hilarious experiments with various diets (NEW YORK TIMES)
Life-changer: This is a remarkable read. Spector is a highly respected scientist - I guarantee his book will change the way you think about food and healthy eating (DELICIOUS MAGAZINE)
One of the leading scientists in the field explores the hidden connection between our guts and our healthSee all Product description
