How many of us have dieted to lose weight and then put it all back on again? Oprah Winfrey, one of America’s most loved stars, has been on a staggering 674 diets, 255 fitness regimes and weighed herself 4,349,571 times over her 30-year career.

Anyone who, like Oprah, has experienced the vicious rollercoaster of losing, regaining and then putting on more weight knows that the advice we are being given doesn’t work. So, what does?

Dr Zoë Harcombe, PhD, experienced the misery of yo-yo dieting throughout her twenties and decided to use her scientific training to find a solution. She has spent the past 20 years studying diet, eating habits and the escalating obesity crisis and is now the go-to nutrition expert for some of the world’s leading doctors.

In The Diet Fix Zoë reveals her 10-step plan for success. Using evidence-based analysis, she tells us how to lose weight without hunger, how to eat better rather than less and, most importantly, how to make it different this time.

“This book is a game changer. You will never need to count calories again.”
Dr Aseem Malhotra
“There is quite simply no writer on nutrition and dietetics anywhere in the world whose opinion I value more than that of Zoë Harcombe. Here, finally, is the weight-loss advice that is effective because it is based on hard science and presented by someone who has been there, tried them all and found what actually works. And keeps on working. For decades. If you are still searching for that elusive lifestyle prescription that will work for you, rejoice. You have finally found it.”
Professor Tim Noakes
