The End of Overeating (Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite) by David Kessler, MD was worth reading to see how the food industry works to keep us craving certain foods (sugar + salt + fat + artificial flavor enhancers) and overeating. If nothing else, it made me never want to eat at chain restaurants again.

OK this suggestion is WAY outside the box, but...

"Guns, Germs and Steel"...I learned more about health, disease, nutrition and human-kind's history with food than almost any other book.

There are so many books out there, some claim total opposite of the others, with references to scientific articles, etc... I no longer wish to read any more, because I feel that I too can write my own diet book!

The reason for all this is human organism is able to survive under a wide variety of conditions. It can do well on many types of diets, especially when one considers losing fat, which seems to be what matters for most people.

One needs further constraints to eliminate competing ideas, like sustainability over the long term of the diets or longevity that results.
