Food Isn’t Medicine


*The Sunday Times Bestseller*

Does sugar cause type 2 diabetes?
Are vegan diets always healthier?
Is weight the main driver of our health?

No, no and absolutely not - NHS doctor and nutritionist Joshua Wolrich is on a mission to set the record straight.

In Food Isn't Medicine, he draws on the latest nutritional science to cut through what he calls 'nutribollocks', unravelling the false beliefs that too often inform how we eat. With candour and compassion, he debunks damaging food myths and dismantles the most pervasive of them all: the myth that your weight defines your health.

If you have ever considered intermittent fasting, avoided artificial sweeteners, dairy or carbs for 'health' reasons, or struggled through diet after diet wondering why nothing seems to work, this book will be a powerful wake-up call.
