Anthony Warner, a professional chef with a university degree in biochemistry, likes to talk about food science. A man with a mission, he wants you to learn why obesity is not as simple as it seems. The world is in the throes of a modern-day epidemic. In the UK, 63% of adults are already overweight. And that number continues to balloon. What’s more, obesity links with an array of chronic diseases and is set to take a terrible toll on humanity and its health care systems. As the world develops and westernizes, obesity should perhaps not be allowed to run riot, making more and more people both fat and sick. Anthony admits he can do little more than step back and assess how the pieces fit into a larger puzzle: i.e. how to address the broader issues of mental health, inequality, poverty, stigma, and social isolation. Only then, can you truly answer the question: Why do some people get fat and others not?
