“Caulfield … is no scaremongering skeptic: His cure for the mess we’re in is this lucid and well-researched compendium of the best-available science …. Insightful and entertaining…. The author is waging a noble battle against a mountain of misinformation. Gently and with humour, Caulfield guides readers through the funhouse world of health sciences with an openness and spirit of inquiry” - National Post
“Though [Caulfield] may write with the cheerful self-deprecation of the slacker dude, he thinks with an academic’s rigor and precision and knows the health maintenance territory inside out.” - The New York Times
“An entertaining and thought-provoking exposé of many of the beliefs that some of us hold dear…. [Caulfield’s] writing is clear and often amusing…. A good read that may change the way you view your daily latte or stroll around the track at the gym.” - Winnipeg Free Press
“A humorous love letter to science … Caulfield’s writing makes science fun. His cure for just about everything that ails us is insightful and … it’s entertaining. He offers simple, evidence-based information that’s far, far away from the magical thinking that goes with bogus health claims…. For a healthy dose of skepticism concerning the twisted messages, read this book.” - The Gazette (Montreal)
“Insightful.” - Maclean’s
“Entertaining and thought-provoking slam at Big Food, Big Pharma, and our own delusions…. Caulfield’s often hilarious, always fascinating journey unearths a few simple truths.” - Publishers Weekly

For some time now I had been trying to penetrate the massive amount of health information out there that is constantly vying for our attention. Some of it is true. Some of it is false. Most of it you scratch your head and ask yourself where do you begin to challenge it?
This is a book about the journey that most middle aged athletic people want to make but don't have the time. This book explodes a lot of myths. But the troubling part is that the truth is really, really simple. If you want to be 'healthy' then you need to lift weights, do HIIT, eat fruits, vegetables and some meat.
The really, really troubling message this book leaves you with is that if you are in your forties, then you need to eat healthy, work out and learn to eat half the amount of food you currently eat.
