      Overview

      There are diets for everyone out there – but how do they affect our brain and metabolism? Which ones really work and which ones are risky? This is an investigation into the dieting body in order to understand which diet suits us so we can reach our ideal weight – and feel better.

      We’ve all tried dieting at least once. Few of us know, though, what really happens to the brain and the body when you skip carbs, go veg or dabble in Paleo and intermittent fasting.

      As we discover the beneficial effects and possible risks of the most famous meal plans out there, the book helps us to make sense of the countless array of more-or-less creative diets and weed out all the marketing ploys. We learn more about our metabolism and, most importantly, rediscover the true meaning of a healthy and balanced diet.
