Publishers Description: Tapping into the power of protein to tell us what to eat, when to eat, how to control weight and how to live longer.How is it that a baboon and a blob of slime mould instinctively know what to eat, yet humans cant seem to figure it out When and why did we lose the basic knowledge to intuit what foods our body needs, and in what proportionsAll organisms trust their appetites to tell them what and how much to eat to ensure good health and reproduction. But unlike other species, the human appetite has gone haywire - we want foods that are terrible for us, and we cant seem monitor our own nutrition levels or our portion sizes.Nutrition scientists David Raubenheimer and Steve Simpson have been looking for answers in the animals they study. In The Power of Protein they take readers on a trip through diet experiments in the lab, in the jungle, and into the kitchen to see how appetites are fed and regulated. What they discover are the five forces that drive the human appetite for food - especially protein - and how we can take control over what we crave.With this new understanding, and following the authors tips on quantities and types of foods, as well as awareness of our nutritional environment, we can reawaken our instincts for a healthy weight and a longer life.
