it was amazing

I found this a really powerful read. So much research is funded by the diet industry that there's much less research out there that challenges what seems 'normal knowledge' around food, weight, and obesity that finds so much place within the media. This account draws upon a huge range of academic studies to demonstrate that there are other ways of thinking, especially the notion that we could focus much more upon health than upon weight.
