In this provocative book, bestselling author Matt Fitzgerald exposes the fallacy upon which nearly every popular diet is based–the mythical notion that there is only one right way to eat–and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits for a lifetime.

— Matt Fitzgerald

From the national bestselling author of "Racing Weight," Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a single right way to eat and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits.

From The Four Hour Body to Atkins, there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the one true way to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than twelve thousand years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, and then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that that is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by science, a good look at actual nutritional science suggests it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits based on one s own habits, lifestyle, and genetics and body type. Many professional athletes already practice this Good Enough diet, and now we can too and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.
