In this book, New York Times best-selling author Vani Hari, “The Food Babe,” exposes the flagrant lies we’ve been fed about the food we eat—lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science on which we make our food choices.
Feeding You Lies guides readers on how to eat foods that truly fill us with nutrients, while discussing the reasons why we continue to fail at becoming healthy, despite our best efforts. It also provides an easy-to-follow plan to help readers avoid this chemical onslaught—and get healthy in the process. Some of the topics covered include:
- How processing strips vital nutrients from our food
- Scandalous cover-ups by the sugar industry to deflect the deadly health risks of sugar, away from sugar to dietary fat
- Food marketing hoaxes such as gluten-free and fat-free
- Synthetic fortification of food to make products appear healthier than they really are
This book offers a 48-hour Toxin Takedown to rid your house and body of food toxins, as well as a 30-Day Lifestyle Challenge, a blueprint for living your life without preservatives, natural and artificial sweeteners, GMOs, additives food dyes, fillers, and more.

If you love this book, you will love The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution from Chef Jai Scovers. It is worth the read.
This is a great book. It shows you how the food industry hires front groups, scientists, trade, etc. to spread lies about Vani Hari and the FACTS that are revealed in this important book. How the heck does the FDA take a food manufacturer's word for it that a chemical they put in a food item is GRAS (generally recognized as safe)? Talk about the wolf guarding the sheep pen...She explains in detail what are the many harmful ingredients in our food that cause diseases, etc. Why is the US allowing Americans to eat toxin ridden foods while providing the same product to Europe with healthy ingredients? We have become the cash cows for the medical and pharmaceutical industries to make money over the illnesses these toxic foods cause. It's an absolute disgrace -- these entities have blood on their hands and they know they are liars all so they can have filthy lucre. Vani Hari is one of the few truth warriors in our Nation who should be applauded for her tireless efforts not harassed by paid shills. If you read this book you must also read her Food Babe Way book as it is a complement to this book. You won't feel sorry for learning the truth, you'll only regret you didn't know this stuff earlier on in life. And for all those people who write this is pseudo-science maybe you should check out the Endnotes section which documents and backs up SCIENTIFICALLY everything she says.
