Zoë Harcombe was the first pupil from her school to graduate from Cambridge University. While studying maths and economics at this historic institution, Zoë set out to answer the million dollar question - "Why do you overeat? When all you want is to be slim?" This became the title of Zoë's first book - published in 2004.

"Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight" followed in 2008, with an accompanying recipe book and "The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?" which was published in October 2010. "The Harcombe Diet for Men" (2011) gave men the super quick read they were after and then two more books were published in 2013 - a collaboration with Hodder & Stoughton: "The 3-Step Plan" and a completely revised "Why do you overeat?"

Zoë has a PhD in public health nutrition. She struggles to find anything that is being taught in 'conventional' nutritional worlds that is true or evidence based. Hence why she spent 2008-10 writing The Obesity Epidemic - 135,000 words blowing apart: the misapplication of thermodynamics to dieting; the notion that 1lb = 3,500 calories, let alone that a deficit of 3,500 calories will lead to a weight loss of 1lb; the Seven Countries Study and the subsequent change in our diet advice, which has caused the obesity epidemic; the role of exercise in obesity and much more.

Why do you overeat? When all you want is to be slim is the psychological companion to Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight. Both will tell you about the three common medical conditions, which are causing your insatiable food cravings. Both will give you the three stages of The Harcombe Diet - the perfect diet to overcome these three conditions and so to end food addiction and overeating.

The Harcombe Diet: Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight is the definitive guide to The Harcombe Diet. This book covers each of the three phases of The Harcombe Diet in detail, with meal plans for each phase - for omnivores and vegetarians - and the recipes to accompany these plans.

In The Harcombe Diet 3-Step Plan, Zoë Harcombe explains how dieting makes us fatter and induces three common conditions which cause uncontrollable food cravings. By following the 3-Step Plan you can overcome these conditions and lose weight - not by counting calories or starving yourself, but simply by eating real food.

"The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?" does what it says in the title - it answers those two critical questions. It takes you on the journey that the author, Zoe Harcombe went on to answer those questions and hopefully it will shock you as much as it shocked her. The starting point must be - when did The Obesity Epidemic start? The graphs and tables show a stunning increase in obesity levels at the turn of the 1980's and obesity literally takes off, like an aeroplane trajectory, from that point onwards.
