    Losing weight is not your life's purpose.

    Do carbs make you fat?
    Could the keto diet cure mental health disorders?
    Are eggs as bad for you as smoking?

    No, no and absolutely not. It's all what Dr Joshua Wolrich defines as 'nutribollocks' and he is on a mission to set the record straight.

    As an NHS doctor with personal experience of how damaging diets can be, he believes every one of us deserves to have a happy, healthy relationship with food and with our bodies. His message is clear: we need to fight weight stigma, call out the lies of diet culture and give ourselves permission to eat all foods.

    Food Isn't Medicine wades through nutritional science (both good and bad) to demystify the common diet myths that many of us believe without questioning. If you have ever wondered whether you should stop eating sugar, try fasting, juicing or 'alkaline water', or struggled through diet after diet (none of which seem to work), this book will be a powerful wake-up call. Drawing on the latest research and delivered with a dose of humour, it not only liberates us from the destructive belief that weight defines health but also explains how to spot the misinformation we are bombarded with every day.

    Dr Joshua Wolrich will empower you to escape the diet trap and call out the bad health advice for what it really is: complete nutribollocks.

Dr Joshua Wolrich is an NHS surgical trainee and nutrition MSc student who is not only setting the record straight when it comes to spurious nutrition advice, but aggressively fighting weight stigma and campaigning for healthcare to become weight-inclusive, spreading the message via his podcasts and his 350K plus followers online. He follows a Health at Every Size® approach and encourages his patients to have a healthy, happy relationship with their bodies and food.
