In The Diet Fix, Zoe Harcombe reveals her 10-step plan for dieting success. Using evidence-based analysis, she tells us how to lose weight without hunger, how to eat better rather than less and, most importantly, how to make it different this time.
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most celebrated women in the world - she's also one of the most famous yo-yo dieters. "It has been the battle of my life," she has said, "... a battle I am still fighting every waking moment." Anyone who, like Oprah, has endured the vicious rollercoaster of losing, regaining and then putting on more weight knows that the advice we are being given doesn't work. So, what does? Dr Zoe Harcombe, PhD, experienced the misery of yo-yo dieting throughout her twenties and decided to use her scientific training to find a solution. She has spent the past 20 years studying diet, eating habits and the escalating obesity crisis and is now the go-to nutrition expert for some of the world's leading doctors. In The Diet Fix, Zoe reveals her 10-step plan for success. Using evidence-based analysis, she tells us how to lose weight without hunger, how to eat better rather than less and, most importantly, how to make it different this time.
Zoe Harcombe's passion is obesity and understanding why when people want to be slim more than anything else, two thirds of us in the 'developed' world are overweight. Whilst studying maths and economics at Cambridge University, Zoe set out to answer the million dollar question - Why do you overeat when all you want is to be slim? This became the title of her first book published in 2004. Following a spell working for major blue chip organisations, Zoe left corporate life in 2008 to make diet and health her full time career. Since then she has set up The Harcombe Diet Club to provide online support for people trying to lose weight and overcome their food addictions. Zoe has a Diploma in Diet and Nutrition and in Clinical Weight Management and is currently researching for her PHD.
