About the Author
Zoë was the first pupil from her state school to graduate from Cambridge University, having won a scholarship to read mathematics/economics at this famous institution. What no one knew at the time was that, having been anorexic as a teenager, Zoë had developed bulimia before starting her studies at Cambridge. She sat in her historic room, stuffing her face with food, and asked the million dollar question: “Why do I overeat? When all I want is to be slim?” So started over a decade of research into obesity, overeating and weight loss. During her 20’s Zoë experienced food cravings to rival any drug addiction and discovered that there are three medical conditions that cause these food cravings. And so her first book came about: “Why do you overeat? When all you want is to be slim.” Published in 2004, it continues to change the lives of people who read it. Since putting her own advice into practice, Zoë has lived craving free and a constant 8 stone for over 15 years. She no longer suffers from any of the conditions that cause insatiable cravings and she knows how to make sure that these conditions never return. “Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight: The Harcombe Diet” was first published in 2008, to share the message with readers world-wide. This recipe book is the perfect accompaniment to all of Zoë’s books. Zoë has also appeared on TV and Radio and writes regularly for magazines and newspapers. Zoë has a Diploma in Diet & Nutrition and a Diploma in Clinical Weight Management, but she is first and foremost an obesity researcher. She has also found that the majority of nutritional information currently being taught (to dieticians and nutritionists) is wrong and that all dietary advisors need to be far more challenging and far less accepting of what they are being told. Solving the obesity epidemic relies upon such people, who really do want to make a difference, questioning their founding beliefs in the way that Zoë has done. Zoë’s personal experience has also proved invaluable in this journey – to have effectively done the Minnesota starvation experiment as a teenager provides an understanding that no text book can match. Researchers writing – “TCB1 Antagonism Exerts Specific Molecular Effects on Visceral and Subcutaneous Fat and Reverses Liver Steatosis in Diet-Induced Obese Mice“ – have no general understanding of obesity and likely have never even been on a diet or had first hand experience of the misery of overweight and hunger. Zoë has.

The premise of this diet ( I believe ) is sound and very simple. Which means that you do not need any more than a few CHAPTERS to get the information required.
It just seems that the author is in a shameless money grab mode by publishing the same information over and over again.
Buy this recipe book. That's all you need.
I have made a ton of recipes in this book, Kindle propped by the stove on a recipe stand. I had so much fun making the mussels in cider, which are to die for. Also the Provence chicken is something I have made a few times now and absolutely love and devour, as do others who are not even on this eating plan. I love the descriptions for the recipes, love the conversion table (needed to switch things over to US measurements), and most of all I love having fun with new recipes that aren't too hard but make amazing food and the recipe isn't some poorly thought out afterthought to a book, which can be very annoying.
Best of both worlds! This book hits my trifecta of recipe needs: Delicious, not boring, and easy to make. Oh, and helps you lose weight. Would that be a quadrifecta?
