Description

This is an unusual – and unusually interesting – exploration of diet, weight and health that touches on memoir but lands on practicality. It’s a cut-to-the-chase book that makes you realize that not everything you know about dieting and weight loss – no matter how much you've read or experienced before – is true, and that way too much of your brain, your time and your pocketbook has been taken up with the endless (and futile) quest. The authors’ two distinct voices thread and play off each other throughout the book as they cover these intensively-researched topics:
–Metabolism
–Why Every Diet Works... and Then Doesn’t
–What Actually is “Healthy” Food?
–The (Almost) Magic Pill: Exercise
–Detox Teas, Juice Cleanses, Supplements, & Waist Trainers
–The Science of Fat Loss
–Sleep, Stress and Your Waistline
–Disordered Eating or Eating Disorder?
–The History of Dieting
–The Biggest Key to Success - A Manifesto on Body Image
–How to Make This Your Last Diet
–Becoming a Professional BS Detector
Food, We Need To Talk is a young woman’s look at the landscape of dieting, weight and health as it is right this moment–from the modern body-inclusivity movement to weight and dressing for social media instead of real life–as well as a very relatable doctor’s long view. Together, they’ve created a unique, information-rich book with a real voice that entertains as it pulls you through.

This book is FANTASTIC!


Juna and Eddie bring science to the table in a way that is understandable, and clarifies so much of the confusion that is perpetrated in society about dieting, weight loss, etc. It was so hard to put down that I spent maybe too much time late at night reading about metabolism and TDEE differences.

The approach to what is presented is very honest, with Juna explaining her own disordered eating and confusion about different diets and the best way to lose weight and thinking why "skinny" was the way to be.

Eddie gives some insight into what lifestyle medicine is, and it brings a lot of hope to the future of medicine.

I am definitely jumping over from the book to listening to their podcast.
