Never before have we had so much information available to us about food and health. There's GAPS, paleo, detox, gluten-free, alkaline, the sugar conspiracy, clean eating . . . Unfortunately, a lot of it is not only wrong but actually harmful. So why do so many of us believe this bad science? Assembling a crack team of psychiatrists, behavioral economists, food scientists, and dietitians, the Angry Chef unravels the mystery of why sensible, intelligent people are so easily taken in by the latest food fads, making brief detours for an expletive-laden rant. At the end of it all you'll have the tools to spot pseudoscience for yourself and the Angry Chef will be off for a nice cup of tea—and it will have two sugars in it, thank you very much.

It’s difficult not to break into a smile when narrator Jonathan Cowley dons the persona of the Angry Chef and begins his tirade on ridiculous claims about food and diets. Speaking with a British accent, Cowley adds humor to author Anthony Warner’s frustration and explanations of the pseudoscience that celebrities use as the basis for their diet plans. Cowley’s enthusiastic expletives and facetious sotto voce comments effectively convey the Angry Chef’s disgust at shameless claims by celebrities and charlatans. Cowley’s narration is entertaining and makes this in-depth exploration of the the lies and false assertions about diets and nutrition, and tips on how we can regain a positive relationship with food, engaging as well as informative.
