Publisher's Summary

Why are you are you eating diet foods and getting fatter? Why do you still have cellulite even though you eat "healthy"? Why don't you know what you are eating, even when you read the label? Why does the obesity rate in America keep climbing, even though the weight-loss market is a $300 billion industry? It is because food manufacturers, the media, nutritionists, trainers, medical professionals, health inspectors, and people like Jeff Scot Philips collude for profits and are: big fat food liars.

What the Critics Say

"In his rollicking, unabashed, and sometimes shocking book, Jeff Scot Philips offers an unprecedented inside look at how labels can be manipulated, regulators can be fooled, and how consumer gatekeepers - from personal trainers to nutritionists - sell high-margin 'health food' to an unsuspecting public that wants to lose weight." (Oz Garcia, best-selling author of Redesigning 50 and The Balance)

    "Keeping it real"

    Really liked it-the story was entertaining and really informative. Confirms a lot of my suspicions of the mass marketed food industries and illuminated some new knowledge.

    "Unlistenable"

    This book is awful. I know some of the reviews said stick it out but I just couldn't. I even skipped to the second part which was supposedly more informative but really got nowhere with that. I was really looking forward to a factual book about the food industry but this read as a fictional account of a fitness instructor's escapades.

    I wish I read the reviews before purchasing. I definitely would have taken a pass on this book.
