About this deal

Wolrich challenges this insidious idea that certain food and diets can cure illnesses as well as the idea that weight is the most important determinant of health. Although that concept has largely fallen by the wayside, the food-is-medicine philosophy brings us back to the disease-as-punishment mindset.

Author claims that there are many books on fad diets and theories which are published only to generate profit. Now I don’t mean random internet trolls – by ‘people’, I mean family and friends who would say ‘of course she wants to sack off diet culture, being so overweight’ and such like. Zoals elke schrijver met een boodschap, zorgt deze schrijver ervoor dat hij overtuigend bewijs aanhaalt voor zijn stelling, namelijk dat voeding geen medicijn is (met de herhaalde opmerking dat we geen muizen zijn en dat niet alle knaagdierbevindingen voor mensen gelden) wat iets anders is dan 'het maakt niets uit wat je eet' terwijl hij ondertussen benadrukt dat het nest waarin je geboren bent en de buurt en omstandigheden waarin je opgroeit minstens zo belangrijk zijn (voor meer overtuigend bewijs: luister naar de podcast Amsterdam wereldstad: waarom Amsterdammers in het ene stadsdeel ouder worden dan in het andere) een heerlijk boek om hap-slik-weg te lezen terwijl het je zeker voldaan achterlaat.

Het is ook leuk om nog eens bevestigd te zien dat "op dieet gaan om liefst zo snel mogelijk af te vallen" iets zinloos is, gelijk welk (populair) dieet hiervoor gevolgd wordt. No, no and absolutely not - NHS doctor and nutritionist Joshua Wolrich is on a mission to set the record straight. I really dislike the harmful narrative that’s created in media and by ‘health’ gurus about food along with general fat-shaming. I’ve followed Dr Joshua Wolrich on social media for some time – so when I saw he had a book coming out I was keen to read it.A couple of years ago I read ‘ Just Eat It’ by Laura Thomas – and it was interesting that she, and intuitive eating, are mentioned early on by Dr Joshua – and I was glad to cover the topic again. Toch ben ik niet meteen van plan om BMI helemaal bij het oud vuil te zetten, al zal ik het wel minder gaan gebruiken. He also points out that food consumption often depends on many different factors – including socio economic situations and education – and food inequity is a big issue even in the UK. I love Dr Wolrich's very easy-to-read and accessible writing style, with some moments of humour thrown in that made me laugh. Mr Wolrich did answer my question as to why a fully qualified Doctor cannot understand "nutritional science” though.

Though a healthful overall diet can indeed help in preventing certain diseases, it’s not a bulletproof defense. I don't normally review books, but I felt strongly that I must review this one because it is likely to totally change your life, and maybe even those of others around you. Food Isn’t Medicine wades through nutritional science (both good and bad) to demystify the common diet myths that many of us believe without questioning. Even if they cite a scientific study as proof of their claims, this doesn’t mean those claims are legitimate.Oz has promoted certain foods as having “ cancer-starving benefits ,” suggesting that eating them in particular quantities may literally prevent cancer from spreading in your body. You don’t get a dressing down for being a victim of diet scams or for diets you follow but instead, replaces new foundations and builds you up in a friendly and informative way.
