We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why?

He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes

Though this book was fantastic - great information and delivered with a sense of humour.
Worth a listen to anyone wanting to understand how our body responds to food intake.
