Conventional Wisdom tells us that all we need to do to lose weight is to eat less and/or do more. Zoe Harcombe busts this, and other diet myths in this thought provoking article.

One pound does not equal 3,500 calories. You will not lose one pound if you create a deficit of 3,500 calories. Eating less/doing more will not work. Five-a-day is not only being a myth, but a contributor to the obesity epidemic.  Saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Your body makes cholesterol, your body is not trying to kill you and more.

As well as busting 20 of the most strongly held diet myths of all times, this manifesto includes the full introduction to Zoë Harcombe’s book The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?
