Waterstones Says

The respected scientist and author of Spoon Fed delivers an eye-opening guide to eating well and presents his own brilliantly practicable approach to nutrition, revealing many surprising and wonderful properties of everyday foods.

Food is our greatest ally for good health, but the question of what to eat has never seemed so complicated. Bestselling author and top 100 most-cited scientist Tim Spector has the answers in this definitive, easy-to-follow guide to the new science of eating well.

Tim Spector has pioneered a new approach to nutrition, encouraging us to forget misleading calorie counts and nutritional breakdowns. In Food for Life he draws on over a decade of cutting-edge scientific research, along with his own personal insights, to deliver a new and comprehensive approach to what we should all know about food today.

Investigating everything from environmental impact and food fraud to allergies and deceptive labelling, Spector also shows us the many wondrous and surprising properties of everyday foods, which scientists are only just beginning to understand.

Empowering and practical, Food for Life is nothing less than a new approach to how to eat - for our health and the health of the planet.
