Product Details


“The problem with many diets, as Barry Estabrook points out in his excellent new book, Just Eat, is that they ‘play down or completely ignore the important, sensual role’ of food.”—Hannah Goldfield,
The New Yorker

“ . . . deeply reported, page-turning . . .”—Matt Rodbard, Taste

“Fascinating . . . beautifully written . . . deeply researched . . . just so good.”—Dorie Greenspan

“. . . an enlightening first-person account focused on the diets that Americans attempt to follow and the cultures that seem to have found a healthy relationship with food.”—Matthew Rees, Wall Street Journal

Just Eat is unlike any diet book I’ve ever read. It is exhaustively researched, yet is an accessible, witty—sometimes laugh-out-loud—read that shines a light on the real reasons it’s so hard to lose weight and what the science shows can actually work.”—Shaun Dreisbach, nutrition and features editor of EatingWell

“Estabrook explores and simplifies a confusing diet landscape.”—Philip Ades, MD, Endowed Professor of Cardiovascular Prevention, The Robert Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont

“This will completely change your ideas about what you should be eating and whether you should even think about trying to lose weight.”—Tommy Tomlinson, author of The Elephant in the Room

“Estabrook packs a lot of highly useful information into a narrative that’s also enjoyably snarky. A lively tour of paunch and pantry that proves the adage that less is more.”—Kirkus Reviews
