    Must-read for anyone interested in nutrition. There is so much "nutribollocks" out there on the internet, theories and diets that are completely unfounded and not backed up by evidence. This book really breaks down and debunks all of the theories and trends, simplifies eating for those of us who have been confused by the abundance of information (and misinformation) presented in the media and online. It also takes a body positive approach to food and seeks to improve our relationship with it and Must-read for anyone interested in nutrition.

    Clear, concise, and easily digestible (pun intended), this book is an excellent overview of research to-date in nutrition. The chapters are balanced and non-judgemental, and reflect how good scientific writing should be, while also being very easy to read for someone with a non-scientific background. I flew through it and found it very interesting, and will be going back to different sections any time I have a query. Particularly loved the discussions on weight stigma and contemporary fad-diets!

    This was an incredibly useful book, in the age of fake nutritional advice being freely thrown around on Instagram, this book gives evidence-based advice on all the nutrition myths out there. I like that the author isn't trying to sway you one way or another, they are simply giving you the facts, and also admitting when there isn't enough evidence/trials yet to prove something. I learnt so much about health in such an accessible, easy-to-read way. Highly recommend.

    The best book about nutrition out there First of all this book is so well written that I read it all in 3 days. It explains in the best way possible what nutrition really is about, what science says about it, what's evidence-based and what is not. I learned a lot, also got rid of some fears around certain topics I had and just enjoyed getting back to some things I already knew and learning so much more. Great read I'd recommend to absolutely everyone.

    Easy to understand, science backed nutrition The authors base all their information on scientific evidence, but somehow manage to make the entire book entertaining and easy to read. They explain everything in simple terms but give enough references and new perspectives on things for all of the nutrition nerds wanting to know a little bit more.

    Easy to read, but I still learned alot despite feeling like I already had quite a secure base of nutrition knowledge. I especially liked how balanced the book was, and the chapter on Diet Culture and Weight Stigma (although I wish there was more information about Intuitive Eating, even a whole chapter, as I felt this part left me with more questions and wanting to know more practical tips)

    A book based on science debunking many mths/trends of popular diets and ways of eating. A good read as most will know navigating around what you should or should not eat to lose weight/ be healthy can be so confusing.

    Definitely a book that has chapters that will be more relevant to some readers more than others. An overall positive balanced read which helped to de-myth and provide a strong evidence base throughout. Not abundant in ‘new’ information to me but good to solidify previous reading.

    At last - a sensible book about nutrition! I loved reading this book. It told the truth, made me laugh and made me realize what I was in danger of forgetting. Food is meant to be enjoyed, not to be seen as something to worry about. Thanks guys.

    Very easy to read and for anyone wanting to cut thru the pseudoscience and get a better understanding of nutrition fact from fiction I’d recommend this book.

    Informative, enjoyable and not too pushy.

    An interesting read that helped me to pick apart some of my preconceptions about diet culture and bust toxic diet myths. Some of the chapters did seem a bit basic and there were quite a few typos.

    All pretty generic and common sense

This book exposes all theories and trends presented online and in the media on fad diets and obscure health claims while still being unbiased and not trying to weigh us as readers towards or against certain thoughts. I do find myself having a more relaxed relationship with food as this book puts my mind at ease, and instead practising a balance and flexible approach to eating.

    This book has really helped me shape a healthy perspective on food and nutrition while giving clear, factual information heavily backed by current research. The authors address a huge variety of nutrition-related issues that are current and relevant. I am so glad I read this book, it has truly changed my relationship with eating and understanding of nutrition.
