Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics
Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim University of California Press 304 pp. $19.95 (2012)
Obesity has gone global — as has misinformation about nutrition and food. Nutrition scientists Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim unscramble the confusion with a serving of science.
They reveal how calories — those potent but ill-understood measures of heat energy — are really counted, why we need them, how we use them, how many we actually need and why it all sometimes goes so wrong.
