  • Summary

  • When did what and how we eat get so tribal? From Paleo to Keto, low fat to low carb, carnivore to vegetarian, vegan and even flexitarian - today we’re bombarded with information about THE diet to follow. 

    Dr Joanna McMillan cuts through the noise and the nonsense and explores the most popular diet trends, the claims that are made and investigates the pros and cons through both a scientific and practical lens. 

    Each episode arms you with the facts you need to end your own diet war, and helps you to feel confident in the food you choose. 

    Dr Joanna McMillan is the author of Audible Original Gutfull and is a PHD qualified nutrition scientist and accredited practicing dietician with a knack for distilling the complex science behind what we eat into easily digestible and practical advice. 

    Please note: this series is presented solely for educational and entertainment purposes. It is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of a physician, dietitian or other qualified health professional.

This clears it all up!

Beautifully narrated of course, Joanna clears up all the chatter out there. I’ve listen to both books on audible and found them both to be equally engaging and informative.

Another brilliant installment from Dr McMillan

Great little series that has lots of good information about the most frequently followed diets and what they have in common for good health.
Didnt enjoy quite as much as Gutfull, perhaps because I already knew some of this and it is common sense. Just out of curiosity, I would have liked to hear a little more about some of the more absurd diets and whether they have any foundation. Loved the storytelling style and narration.

Tries too hard for mass appeal

O.K. as a basic primer on some popular fad diets (keto, paleo, etc.) Glosses over science of plant based whole food diets, seemingly because she feels they are 'too hard' for most people. (Diabetes, cardiovascular disease and bypass surgery are 'harder'.) She seems to miss the point that the impetus for developing alternative meats was not to provide a 'healthy' sub for humans to eat but as a way to lessen animal suffering.
