Book Publisher Bennion Kearny is to release Gut Feeling: Why Diets Exercise and Shaming have Failed.
ITV’s Loose Women have long promoted ‘loving yourself for who you are’ no matter what size or shape.
Gut Feeling: Why Diets, Exercise, and Shaming have Failed has been written by journalist Hamish Stuart in which the author takes a devastating critique of the dieting industry, the vested interests of the food industry and those who think being fat is some kind of choice.
The world is getting fatter, so we need a new approach to global obesity. Commentators love to pin the blame on fat people’s ‘inability’ to eat less and go to the gym more, while moaning how they drain health services because of ‘selfish’ lifestyle choices. The same old, traditional weight loss messages – the same old bad results. So why do most dieters end up putting lost weight back on (often even more) whilst the diet industry continues to grow fat on the back of repeated failure?
Anyone who is overweight can tell you obesity is not a simple phenomenon; it is a combination of factors including food variety, what’s actually in the food we eat, the impact of processed foods, movement and exercise, individual genetics and body chemistry, addiction, governmental action (and inaction), and much more. Weight loss and healthy living, therefore, need a multi-factorial approach, too.
Author Hamish Stuart – a journalist who willingly admits he is obese, and who has been on more diets than he can remember – is on a mission to bust the myths, reveal the reality, and plan for a more positive future. In Gut Feeling, he lays out the facts and fairy-tales of weight loss to provide a devastating critique of why we have got weight loss so wrong so far, but where we can go from here to make things better.
