An indispensable, groundbreaking look at the way our genetic makeup influences our relationship with food.

In an age of misinformation and pseudo-science, the world is getting fatter and the diet makers are getting richer. So how do we break this cycle that’s literally killing us all?

Drawing on the very latest science and his own genetic research at the University of Cambridge, Dr. Giles Yeo has written the seminal “anti-diet” diet book. Exploring the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense, detoxifying diet advice, and confronting the advocates of clean eating, Giles translates his pioneering research into an engaging, must-read study of the human appetite.

In a post-truth world, Gene Eating cuts straight to the data-driven facts. Only by understanding the physiology of our bodies, their hormonal functions, and their caloric needs can we overcome the mis- information of modern dieting trends, empower ourselves to make better decisions, and achieve healthy relationships with food, our bodies, and our weight.

Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and fascinating details, Gene Eating is an urgent and essential book that will change the way we eat.
