Social media is a major part of modern life. Most of us can't imagine not using it, and it's unrealistic to assume that's even possible.
Platforms like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook haven't been around long, but they have already made far-reaching impacts on our health and wellbeing. We are only just beginning to understand the influence these platforms have over our decisions around food and health, with many of these processes happening without our being aware.
But maybe we should be aware.
From influencers deciding what foods we buy to government policy, via food shaming and comparison envy, activism and extremism, the role social media plays is now undeniable.
In The Insta-Food Diet, registered nutritionist Pixie Turner will guide you through the various ways social media has affected our food choices, our restaurants, and our food policy.
By the end, you'll be armed with knowledge and tactics, so you can take back control and make social media work for you.
'Pixie Turner manages to strip away the bullshit that surrounds diet and health, replacing it with facts, balance and a long overdue call to re-engage with food. This is the book that the world of wellness desperately needs' Anthony Warner, the Angry Chef.
'A manifesto for happy, sensible eating: to encourage us to respect science, to relax and, crucially, to find pleasure in food' Stella magazine.
'Pixie's book is a much needed breath of fresh air. She writes honestly and from the heart' Dr Anjali Mahto.
