Overview

Tired of diets which don’t work long term? Tired of punishing exercise? Tired of fat-shaming? Tired of being told what to do by people who don’t understand you? Gut Feeling is the story of why ‘traditional’ approaches fail to stop expanding waistlines - and what you can do about it.

For 40 years, the worldwide obesity crisis has just got worse. The messages of ‘eat less, move more, blame fat people’ have failed. We have to change our thinking, do what the science is actually telling us and - most importantly - we have to give fat people a voice.

Gut Feeling takes aim at the major players in the obesity crisis. From the manufacturers of processed food and fizzy drinks, to the dieting industry, to exercise gurus, to governments. The obesity debate is starting from the wrong place, dominated by people who do not really understand the big picture.

In this book, learn why:

  • Diets and exercise fail in the long term.
  • It is not choice, or lack of willpower, that drives obesity.
  • Fat people are not an extra burden on health services.
  • The food industry is desperate to maintain the status quo.
  • Fat shaming is misguided and counter-productive.

Gut Feeling offers a real-world approach to controlling weight better. It is time to bust the myths, reveal the reality, and plan for a more positive future!
