**AS HEARD ON BBC RADIO FOUR** Food is our greatest ally for good health, but the question of what to eat has never seemed so complicated. Bestselling author and top 100 most-cited scientist Tim Spector has the answers in this definitive, easy-to-follow guide to the new science of eating well. Tim Spector has pioneered a new approach to nutrition, encouraging us to forget misleading calorie counts and nutritional breakdowns. In Food for Life he draws on over a decade of cutting-edge scientific research, along with his own personal insights, to deliver a new and comprehensive approach to what we should all know about food today. Investigating everything from environmental impact and food fraud to allergies and deceptive labelling, Spector also shows us the many wondrous and surprising properties of everyday foods, which scientists are only just beginning to understand. Empowering and practical, Food for Life is nothing less than a new approach to how to eat - for our health and the health of the planet. ** A THE TIMES and SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR** 'A rigorously academic book that welcomes the layperson with open arms.'

The pandemic should have changed many attitudes towards understanding biology, and Food for Life is the newly scientifically semi-literate person's post-Covid go-to food book... I trust the author and his work. * The Times, *Book of the Week* * Appealingly, Spector writes as a food lover... Every person's ideal diet is different, and should be based on sensible choices from a position of knowledge. Food for Life is a feast of that knowledge... Bullet-pointed tips at the end of each chapter and an appendix of food tables make it a valuable reference book to keep on a kitchen shelf. * Guardian * [A] weighty and detailed guide to modern living... [Spector] explains how to boost your microbiome and tailor your diet. * Sunday Times, *Books of the Year* * Food for Life is a fascinating tour d'horizon, deftly drawing on recent research... Well written [and] informative. * Literary Review * Tim Spector has been exploding the myths around food and heal for years... Here he continues the demolition job in a rigorously academic book that welcomes the layperson with open arms. * The Times, *Books of the Year* * A fascinating insight into what we eat in a highly readable format. * Tablet * The nutrition revolution is well underway and Tim Spector is one of the visionaries leading the way. His writing is illuminating and so incredibly timely. -- Yotam Ottolenghi - praise for SPOON-FED Will actually help you decide what to add to your next grocery shop... This is one of the clearest and most accessible short nutrition books I have read: refreshingly open-minded, deeply informative and free of faddish diet rules. -- Bee Wilson * The Guardian - praise for SPOON-FED * No fads, no nonsense, just practical, science-based advice on how to eat well. * Daily Mail, *Books of the Year* * A well-researched and informative book ... Great to see academia catching up with the real world. * Natural Products *
