Yeo draws on the latest science and his own research into genetics to look at the human appetite and the way we eat. Why are we getting fatter, why are some people hungrier that others and why don’t diets work? He explores the history of our food and debunks marketing and toxic diet advice.
Yeo has more than 20 years’ experience researching the genetics of obesity and is director of genomics at the Medical Research Council Metabolic Diseases Unit. He presented the BBC’s critically acclaimed Horizon: Clean Eating – the Dirty Truth and has also been seen on BBC Two’s Trust Me, I’m a Doctor and on BBC One’s Britain’s Fat Fight with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
