What nature teaches us about the science of healthy eating. How is it that a baboon and a blob of slime mould instinctively know what to eat, yet humans can't seem to figure it out? When and why did we lose the basic knowledge to intuit what foods our body needs, and in what prop...ortions? All 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 can't seem monitor our own nutrition levels or our portion sizes. David Raubenheimer and Steve Simpson have been looking for answers in the animals they study. In The Power of Protein they take readers along on field trips and provide them with cutting-edge scientific knowledge of what drives the human appetite for food - especially protein - and how we can take control over what we crave. With this new understanding of biology, 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.
