"The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?" does what it says in the title - it answers those two critical questions. It takes you on the journey that the author, Zoe Harcombe went on to answer those questions and hopefully it will shock you as much as it shocked her. The starting point must be - when did The Obesity Epidemic start? The graphs and tables show a stunning increase in obesity levels at the turn of the 1980's and obesity literally takes off, like an aeroplane trajectory, from that point onwards.
Real food, great taste; optimal health - that's what The Harcombe Diet is all about and here's how to do it. With over 100 recipes for Phase 1, another 100 for Phase 2 and then just a few seriously special Phase 3 cheats, this is the ultimate diet-recipe book. You can have burgers, seafood risotto and authentic Indian curry in Phase 1; boeuf bourguignon, mushroom stroganoff and cream berry pudding in Phase 2 and the most sensational dark chocolate mousse in Phase 3. This features Harcombe friendly versions of the classic dishes – French onion soup, coq au vin, chilli con carne and staple accompaniments – mayonnaise, chips and cauliflower cheese. If you want to eat real food, lose weight and gain health – this is a must for your kitchen shelf.
