Spoon-Fed: Why almost everything we've been told about food is wrong (Paperback)Tim Spector (author)
Taking a revelatory look at the misinformation about the food we eat, Spoon Fed busts myths and questions policies in short and accessible bite-sized chapters.
The groundbreaking Sunday Times bestseller from Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth and creator of the COVID Symptom Study app.
Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?
Is there any point in counting calories?
Is there any evidence that coffee is bad for us?
Through his pioneering research, Professor Tim Spector busts these and many other myths about food. Spoon-Fed explores the scandalous lack of good science behind many diet plans, official recommendations and miracle cures, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food - not just for our health as individuals, but for the future of the planet.
