E218: The Weight Loss Scientist: You've Been LIED To About Calories, Dieting & Losing Weight: Giles Yeo
The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
Have you tried every diet under the sun but can’t seem to budge the weight, or if you have lost the weight as soon as you stop the diet you put it all back on? What if weight loss had nothing to do with discipline and self control, but your brain was actually designed to want you to be fat? This is something that Cambridge University Professor Giles Yeo has been researching all through his career, how the brain controls our bodyweight. Dr Yeo examines how our genes have evolved over time to make us crave certain foods, and why people can have totally different relationships with food. After watching this conversation you won’t see food the same way again, as Dr Yeo exposes why calories shouldn’t be counted, why most diets are the same and unsustainable in the long term and how you can lose weight without losing your love of food. Topics: Professional bio Why did you decide to focus on food? How has our perspective on food changed since you started?
