I’m pretty leery of new diet books and products—or really any weight loss “solution.” Not only is there a lot of unhealthy, unsubstantiated advice out there, but it’s become more apparent over the past decade that we don’t have all the information to give consumers a true solution or to fully explain the U.S. obesity epidemic and how to fix it.

After highlighting my way through the book in under two days (something I haven’t done since grad school), I said, “THIS is the missing puzzle piece.” So what exactly is The Obesity Code? And how does it set itself apart from other diets like Keto and Paleo? I did some digging into this groundbreaking book—here’s what I found out.
