There’s so much confusion about what to eat. Are you jumping from diet to diet and nothing seems to work? Are you sick of seeing contradictory health advice from experts? Just like the tobacco industry lied to us about the dangers of cigarettes, the same untruths, cover-ups, and deceptive practices are occurring in the food industry. Vani Hari, aka The Food Babe, blows the lid off the lies we’ve been fed about the food we eat–lies about its nutrient value, effects on our health, label information, and even the very science we base our food choices on. You’ll discover:
• How nutrition research is manipulated by food company funded experts
• How to spot fake news generated by Big Food
• The tricks food companies use to make their food addictive
• Why labels like “all natural” and “non-GMO” aren’t what they seem and how to identify the healthiest food
• Food marketing hoaxes that persuade us into buying junk food disguised as health food
Vani guides you through a 48-hour Toxin Takedown to rid your pantry, and your body, of harmful chemicals–a quick and easy plan that anyone can do. A blueprint for living your life without preservatives, artificial sweeteners, additives, food dyes, or fillers, eating foods that truly nourish you and support your health, Feeding You Lies is the first step on a new path of truth in eating–and a journey to your best health ever.
From the Publisher
IT’S NOT LIKE ANY DIET OR HEALTH BOOK YOU’VE EVER READ
From the very start, Vani Hari’s mission has been simple: to tell people the truth about the food they’re eating. But it’s not enough to just tell people about the ingredients that were making them sick – if she was going to help fix the system, Vani also needed to expose the lies that kept the status quo in place. She needed to give people the ability to see through these lies so they can make informed choices about the food they are eating and feeding to their families.
Feeding You Lies gives you actionable steps that protect you from cheap, processed, unhealthy foods and the health problems and suffering they cause. It provides you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions and will help you overcome the obstacles standing in the way of you taking greater responsibility for your health.
This book is inspired by people like you, people who are trying to take the best care of themselves and become informed about the food we eat.
Take control of your life – and change it for the better.
