Why are we all getting fatter?
Why are some people hungrier than others?
And why don't diets work

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 killing us all?

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

Inspiring and revelatory, Gene Eating is an urgent and essential book that will empower us all with the facts we need to establish healthy relationships with food - and change the way we eat

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It is rare to find a book, written by a world-class scientist, that is both informative and entertaining. Giles not only delves into the science of obesity but, with honesty and great precision, skewers many of the more foolish fad diets out there. ' - Dr Michael Mosley

'I really enjoy working with Giles - he makes so much sense, and cuts through the confusion about diet and health with refreshing directness. His excellent book Gene Eating busts myths and homes in on what you really need need to know. It's been a genuine help to me and I'm sure it will be to everyone who reads it.' - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

'Dr Yeo is a leading scientist in the field of obesity and one of our best science communicators. Everyone worried about their weight ought to read this book to digest its message about the importance of genetics.' Robert Plomin

'An excellent and engaging book, but also an important one. It is about time that a serious, respected academic provided a voice of reason' - Anthony Warner aka The Angry Chef

'Gene Eating is just a fantastic book exactly as you'd expect - but more so. Mainly it's very funny, packed with science and trivia and genuinely helpful weightloss and nutrition info' - Dr Chris Van Tulleken, BBC
