The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat !LINK!



After a brief introduction based on his own experience untying the myriad of diet information available, Spector begins by explaining the history of microbes and why they have been overlooked in diet studies for so long (mainly because science first focused on disease-inducing bacteria).




The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat



In THE DIET MYTH Tim Spector will offer a compelling account of our physiological relationship with food, and dispel many of the most prevalent myths and pseudo-science surrounding faddish diets. With this new knowledge we can begin to understand the complex relationship our bodies have with food and start to reverse this health crisis.


We are all increasingly bewildered by the simple question of what to eat. Despite advice from experts, governments and dieticians about the dangers of too much fat, sugar, protein and lack of exercise, our nutrition - and the global obesity crisis - is getting worse.


Drawing on the latest science and his own research team's pioneering work, Professor Tim Spector explores the hidden world of the microbiome and demystifies the common misconceptions about fat, calories, vitamins and nutrients. Only by understanding how our own microbes interact with our bodies can we overcome our confusion about modern diets and nutrition to regain the correct balance of our ancestors.


Mixing cutting-edge discoveries, illuminating science and his own case studies, Spector shows why we should stop listening to the myths of diet fads and instead embrace diversity for a healthy gut and a healthy body.


Fully updated throughout and with a new foreword for this edition.Why do most diets fail? Why does one person eat a certain meal and gain weight, while another eating the same meal loses pounds? Why, despite all the advice about what to eat, are we all still getting fatter?The answers are much more surprising - and fascinating - than we've been led to believe. The key to health and weight loss lies not in the latest fad diet, nor even in the simple mantra of 'eat less, exercise more', but in the microbes already inside us. Drawing on the latest science and his own pioneering research, Professor Tim Spector demystifies the common misconceptions about fat, calories, vitamins and nutrients. Only by understanding what makes our own personal microbes tick can we overcome the confusion of modern nutrition, and achieve a healthy gut and a healthy body.


Spector's book The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat was published in 2015.[8] The book explains how gut microbiotas interact with different dietary habits and how the gut microbiome can determine health and longevity.[9][10][11][12] It received positive reviews in science journals.[11][13] Spector argues for a diet that increases gut microbe diversity. To do this he recommends increasing fibre content, avoiding junk and processed foods and experimenting with different fresh foods.[14][15]

'I don't read diet books and I certainly never plug them, but The Diet Myth is a worthy exception that provides new insight into why we should think twice about what we put in our mouths.' -- Dr Mark Porter THE TIMES


Food is our greatest ally for good health, but the question of what to eat has never seemed so complicated. In his new book, Tim Spector creates a unique, thorough, evidence-based guide to the real science of eating. Moving away from misleading notions of calories or nutritional breakdowns, Food for Life empowers us to make our own food choices based on a deeper understanding of the true benefits and harms that come from our daily transactions with the foods around us.


Forget everything you think you know about your body and food and discover the new science of how the body heals itself. Learn how to identify the strategies and the dosages for using food to transform your resilience and health in Eat to Beat Disease. Eat to Beat Disease isn't about what foods to avoid, but rather is a life-changing guide to the hundreds of healing foods to add to your meals that support the body's defense systems

How you respond to food depends on many factors - such as what and when you eat, your gut microbes (microbiome), sleep, and physical activity - not just your genes. Any test claiming to be able to identify the perfect diet based solely on your genes is going to be far too simplistic.


Rather than cutting out carbs altogether, a less restrictive, more varied, and more sustainable approach is to replace low-quality carbs like sugary processed foods in your diet with high-quality carbs (whole grains, fruits, and vegetables) or healthy fats (nuts, avocados, or olive oil), depending on what works best for your unique biology.


He has written several books, He is also author of - The Diet Myth: The real science behind what we eat by W&N 2015 and Identically different: Why you can change your genes, by W&N in 2012 and Your Genes Unzipped in 2003

I am not a dietician and cannot speak with authority about the nutritional costs and benefits of Paleolithic diets, but I can comment on their evolutionary underpinnings. From the standpoint of paleoecology, the Paleolithic diet is a myth. Food choice is as much about what is available to be eaten as it is about what a species evolved to eat. And just as fruits ripen, leaves flush and flowers bloom predictably at different times of the year, foods available to our ancestors varied over deep time as the world changed around them from warm and wet to cool and dry and back again. Those changes are what drove our evolution.


In general, the bulk of the science suggests that nitrates and nitrites are not problematic and may even be beneficial to health. Critical reviews of the original evidence suggesting that nitrates/nitrites are carcinogenic reveals that in the absence of co-administration of a carcinogenic nitrosamine precursor, there is no evidence for carcinogenesis. (7) Newly published prospective studies show no association between estimated intake of nitrite and nitrite in the diet and stomach cancer. (8) Nitric oxide, formed by nitrite, has been shown to have vasodilator properties and may modulate platelet function in the human body, improving blood pressure and reducing heart attack risk. (9, 10, 11) Nitrates may also help boost the immune system and protect against pathogenic bacteria (12, 13, 14) 041b061a72
