I have written at length about how diet affects your health and weight. This was partly driven by my own success in the battle of the bulge. However, this matter is not just about your personal weight issues, or body image, or health status. This is also about ecology, the health of the land, and climate change. We not only have a global obesity epidemic, but also a global food system that is sick.
