From the national best-selling author of Racing Weight, Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a "single right way" to eat and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits.
From "the Four-Hour Body" to "Atkins," there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the "one true way" to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, and then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: There is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that this is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by science, a good look at actual nutritional science suggests it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits based on one's own habits, lifestyle, and genetics and body type. Many professional athletes already practice this "Good Enough" diet, and now we can too - and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.

Another pointless diet book
This self-aggrandising diet book, proclaimed by the author as "not another diet book", is best described as much ado about nothing. After krass generalisations about the origins of human diet based on various spurious notions the author proceeds to bore the reader to death with several anecdotal pieces of evidence I expect are intended to highlight his witty sarcasm and distract the reader from the sheer dearth of actual practical advice offered on the topic of actual healthy nutrition. I'm all for a bit of blurb but come on, five hours in there is little if any attempt to address the aims the book's title claims to assess. Current research indicates unambiguously that weight-loss is primarily achieved by being in a hypercaloric state and may be augmented by adjusting macronutrient intake. This is simply not addressed by the author who clearly has no idea as this was never addressed. Give this one a wide berth.
