The Diet Compass Summary

The Diet Compass: the 12-step guide to science-based nutrition for a healthier and longer life by Bas Kast

What do people with a particularly long life-span eat?
How can you lose weight efficiently?
Are illnesses in old age avoidable?
Can you 'eat yourself young'?

Discover the answers to these questions and more in this practical, science-based guide to eating well and living longer, which has sold over a million copies worldwide.

When science journalist Bas Kast collapsed with chest pains, he feared he had ruined his health forever with a diet of junk food. So he set off on a journey to uncover the essentials of diet and longevity.

Here, filtered from thousands of sometimes conflicting research findings, Kast presents the key scientific insights that reveal the most beneficial diet possible. From analysing how much sugar you should consume to looking at the impact of supplements, fasting, and even whether you should drink tea or coffee, Kast breaks down diet myths to present the key facts you need to know in clear, accessible language.
