"This book changed the way I think about food and health. Well written, insightful, funny, and even poetic at times, this book synthesizes recent scientific discoveries and ancient cultural knowledge about diet, climate, microbiota, and overall health. Don't let the title mislead you. This is not just a book about weight management. It's really about a holistic approach to overall health and I would recommend this book to anyone. It's eye opening and a joy to read!"
