Summary: Bariatric surgeon Andrew Jenkinson takes his patients own experiences of failed weight loss, mixes them with emerging science and leads you on a rollercoaster ride through metabolism, evolution, tasty food and suspect research to finally unlock the secrets to beating obesity. Why We Eat (Too Much) is written to empower the reader to understand weight regulation. It takes the perspective of the failed dieter and explains, using ground breaking research, evolutionary medicine, anthropology, epigenetics, the history of food, and a large dose of common sense, just why they ended up trapped. The book, though fully scientifically referenced, is fast moving, light hearted and full of surprising facts and stories. It was conceived to be the ‘Freakonomics’ of Metabolism.
