Can you remember a time in your life without diets?  Without either seeing ads about diets, hearing about diets, or being on a diet?  Most of us struggle to imagine it. But what implications does this have on our overall health?

Our obsession with being healthy and living forever has driven us to push our bodies to the absolute limits, but still every year we're being told how unhealthy we are as a population. Despite a wealth of information at our fingertips, there are still so many things we get wrong about food and health.  The No Need To Diet Book explains the reasons why diets and over exercising don't work; the problems with eating for aesthetic goals; the science behind orthorexia, food anxieties and emotional eating, and other unhealthy habits formed by misinformation. This book will challenge our misconceptions about what is healthy and get to the heart of it using evidence-based science.

Pixie Turner is a food blogger, biochemist (BSc), nutritionist (MSc) (AfN), writer, and speaker. She has also been featured at many events, in various publications and on BBC World News and Channel 5 as a nutritional expert.  She lives in London.
