Spoon-Fed

Spoon-Fed

Why almost everything we’ve been told about food is wrong, by the #1 bestselling author of Food for Life

Summary

THE #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE LEADING GUT-HEALTH EXPERT, FOUNDER OF ZOE AND AUTHOR OR FOOD FOR LIFE

* As seen on ITV's LORRAINE and heard on THE DIARY OF A CEO *


This ground-breaking exploration debunks food myths, from what we should be eating for breakfast to whether we should really avoid ultra-processed foods.

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, miracle cures and ultra-processed foods, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food - not just for our health as individuals, but for the future of the planet.
