Book reviews for The Diet Myth

The Diet Myth is fascinating, and I'm now obsessed with microbes!
Nigella Lawson
A fascinating and original look at the impact of food on our bodies underpinned by cutting-edge research.
Michael Mosley
It's not often that a book changes my life in a mere three chapters ... given my usual reluctance to jump on any nutritional bandwagon, I reckon this makes Tim Spector's work a rather compelling read. ... It's truly eye-opening stuff, and we owe it to ourselves and the 100 trillion friends inside our bodies to read this book.
Felicity Cloake, LITERARY REVIEW
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
