Gluten. Salt. Sugar. Fat. These are the villains of the American diet - or so a host of doctors and nutritionists would have you believe. But the science is far from settled, and we are racing to eliminate wheat and corn syrup from our diets because we've been lied to. The truth is that almost all of us can put the buns back on our burgers and be just fine.
Remember when butter was the enemy? Now it's good for you. You may have lived through times when the Atkins Diet was good, then bad, and then good again; you may have wondered why all your friends cut down on salt or went Paleo; and you might even be thinking about cutting out wheat products from your own diet.
In this groundbreaking work, Alan Levinovitz, PhD, exposes the myths behind how we come to believe which foods are good and which are bad and points the way to a truly healthful life, free from anxiety about what we eat.
"A factually accurate and highly entertaining work." (Peter Gibson, MD, Director of Gastroenterology at the Alfred Hospital and Monash University)

Entire Book Not Included
- Randall D. Raymond
Excellent book, poor listen
I loved how the author approaches how we eat today in historical context, and looks at religion and human psychology to understand our current food obsessions.
Very well written, it covers a lot of science in a comprehensible and engaging manner.
Horrible narrator, very lilting and exaggerated voice. Poorly edited, you could hear the breaks between recording sessions.
Please, please please figure out a way to help listeners access the references and footnotes! I understand that the last chapter included graphs, bubbles, info that supplemented the silly UNpacked diet, I would love to see that. I feel like I was ripped off.
I STRONGLY urge anyone considering this book to buy a print version instead. This was just about the worst book I have listened to on audible. Not that the content was bad, but the formatting was terrible.
