BIG FAT LIES

How the diet industry is making you sick, fat and poor

by DAVID GILLESPIE

 

New softcover book. Published 2012, 266 pages

Diets and exercise won't help us lose weight.  Vitamins and minerals are a waste of money and sometimes downright dangerous.  Sugar makes us fat and sick.  And polyunsaturated fat gives us cancer and works with sugar to give us heart disease.  This book exists because I desperately hope that with a little knowledge we can all vote with out feet and change the rules of the game before the game kills us.

This latest offering from David Gillespie explodes the myths about diet, exercise and vitamin supplements, examining the latest scientific evidence and exposing the role the multibillion-dollar food, health and diet industries have played in promoting the health messages we follow or feel guilty about not following.

Eat less, exercise more, eat less saturated fat, eat more polyunsaturated oils, take vitamin and omega-3 fatty acid supplements - this is what we are told (and the statistics even show it is what we do) - but the rates of obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia and cancer have never been higher. The real culprits, Gillespie says, are sugar and polyunsaturated oils. He outlines a plan to avoid them without missing out or 'dieting', and to improve our health, happiness and life-expectancy.

Discovering the truth about diets, exercise, supplements and processed food is your first step towards improved health, greater happiness and a longer life for you and your family.

About the author

David Gillespie is a recovering corporate lawyer, co-founder of a successful software company and consultant to the IT industry. He is also the father of six young children (including a set of twins). With so much extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat. He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself.

David's first book, the best-selling Sweet Poison: Why Sugar Makes Us Fat, was published in 2008
