I have written a new book called Stop Feeding us Lies. It is in the final stages of editing and will be available soon.
Most people know me as an Olympic medal-winning marathon runner and the author of From Last to First. I have written this book because I have worked as a community pharmacist for most of my life. During my years in the health service, I witnessed the terrible rise in life-style diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. Whilst medication for people suffering from these conditions may be essential, I decided that my time is better spent campaigning for healthier life-styles, which will reduce the occurrence of these diseases, rather than supplying medication to alleviate the symptoms.
Because of my background as an athlete, I assumed people were becoming over-weight because they did not exercise enough. During the years I have spent researching this book, I realised my bias was largely incorrect and nutrition is the most important factor in our long-term health. We are all bombarded with dietary advice but our weight keeps going up and our health keeps going down. This is happening because large amounts of the dietary advice we are given is wrong and some of it is a big, fat lie.
Stop feeding us lies explains how and why we are being misled. It clarifies how we can take back control of our health, with the food we are supposed to eat.
