We are eating better than ever before. So why aren't we all getting thinner?

There is an unsolved puzzle at the heart of nutrition science. Recent studies show that we are eating less sugar, less fat, fewer carbs and fewer overall calories. In fact, the only thing we're eating more of is fruit and vegetables. At the same time, 63% of adults are now overweight, with 27% of them considered obese.

It is clearly not a matter of discipline. Everyone has a friend who has cut out sugar, another who doesn't eat fat, and probably a third who cares lovingly for their gut microbes. But the blame always seems to be shifting from one food group to another, and the only thing that stays consistent is the number of people struggling with their weight.

Anthony Warner, author of The Angry Chef, has decided to get to the bottom it once and for all. Is there a fat gene? Is obesity really an epidemic? Can you be addicted to food? Can't you just exercise your way to freedom? And what the heck is a food desert?

You want the truth without the sugar-coating? The science, without the prejudice? You can handle it.
