Foodist is a "diet" book with a simple message: eat real food, not processed junk. It criticizes most "Diet" books for focusing on individual components instead of emphasizing good behavior over the long run. Those "simple" diets may help people lose weight quickly, but they don't alter the body's setpoint and people usually end up back where they started (or worse.) They also tend to make foods the enemy. Instead, people should focus on "real" food, as close to the production as possible. They should try to prepare it themselves and eat what is delicious, while not going for the quick fix. It makes a whole lot of sense. I was expecting this to be more of a "science" book than a diet book, but it did have some good parts.
