20 Diet Myths: Busted. A Manifesto to change how you think about dieting.

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Conventional Wisdom tells us that all we need to do to lose weight is to eat less and/or do more. Zoe Harcombe busts this, and other diet myths in this thought provoking article.

One pound does not equal 3,500 calories. You will not lose one pound if you create a deficit of 3,500 calories. Eating less/doing more will not work. Five-a-day is not only being a myth, but a contributor to the obesity epidemic.  Saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Your body makes cholesterol, your body is not trying to kill you and more.

As well as busting 20 of the most strongly held diet myths of all times, this manifesto includes the full introduction to Zoë Harcombe’s book The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?

Not bad

Some interesting food for thought excuse the pun... However there's some ambiguous points in there that I didn't necessarily agree with. Kind of felt that this was wrote by someone who likes a conspiracy theory


Very interesting book, but some points are a bit too vague and do not offer alternative solutions , and some of the "myths" I have done and I've lost 40 pounds so ...

Brief but Accurate

Very clear and precise myth exploding book debunking " the fat is the route of all dietry evil.
