“No matter where I am, I wonder about where I stand and how I look. I think, I am the fattest person in this apartment building. I am the fattest person at this university. I am the fattest person in this airport. I am the fattest person in this city . . . This is a constant,destructive refrain and I cannot escape it.”

Mr Warner, aka Angry Chef, is a blogger. Like,it seems, most chefs, he enjoys sweary words; words which in print have a first and last letter and lots of ***s in the middle. Unlike, probably, most chefs, he studied biochemistry at university and really loves the language and methods of science.

This is a stunning book which I recommend with great enthusiasm. Dorling Kindersley is a British publisher specialising in visual reference books, yet again showing a mastery in translating complex information into gorgeous pictures. And most importantly, retaining detail and accuracy of the subject, without drift and dilution. This book provides lots of great science about food and nutrition, presented beautifully.

This is a mighty beast of a book, dedicated to the elephant in the room of nutrition science. Meaning the big and grey and trumpeting elephant of environmental threat . . .

By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete--as well as showcasing similar stories from other women--Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same.Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best.

This is a book for nutritionists who want to understand the principles and practices of economics. And perhaps also a book for economists who want to relate their skills to a better understanding of nutrition.

Tim Noakes is a not-shy professor of exercise physiology from Cape Town in South Africa and has lots to say on diet. More on this later. However, it is amazing that he has just become the main murder victim in a crime fiction book, despite being very much alive. It is some tribute to him that there are enough South African readers of the completely made-up plot of his murder, to put the book into the Top 10 sales list for March 2016. The book Death by Carbs bizarrely describes the fictionalised characters involved and affected by the unreal death of a real nutritionist.
