Waterstones Says

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Dispelling decades of misinformation...Spoon-Fed is a fascinating read. - Tony Turnbull, The Times

The nutrition revolution is well underway and Tim Spector is one of the visionaries leading the way. His writing is illuminating and so incredibly timely. - Yotam Ottolenghi

Will actually help you decide what to add to your next grocery shop... This is one of the clearest and most accessible short nutrition books I have read: refreshingly open-minded, deeply informative and free of faddish diet rules. - Bee Wilson, Guardian

Sacred cows fall thick and fast in this slim but densely packed volume... A clarion call for change... This book should be available on prescription. - Felicity Cloake, Literary Review

A hugely enjoyable and critical look at common food myths... A worthy successor to his previous best seller, The Diet Myth. - Michael Mosley

“A must have!”

Everybody should read this book! We could save the country millions if not billions of pounds if we all stopped buying poor quality food with very little nutritional value and started cooking our own. Buying less in... More
