Episode details

In this episode, I summarise two books that I recently read on the causes of Obesity. The Obesity Code written by Dr Jason Fung and Ultraprocessed People written by Chris van Tulleken. The two books play into each other with the obesity theme being central to both of them. This made it all the more interesting for me.

Obesity is not a result of a person’s inability to control oneself, it is a result of food being engineered in such a fashion that it promotes higher consumption. People who fall prey to this are the victims and not the villains.
