What's the talk about?


Why anyone who says that weight gain and obesity are simple is probably trying to sell you something.

Anthony Warner, aka The Angry Chef, will cover the science of weight gain, the problem with weight stigma, and the many people selling lies and false promises. He will also discuss why our fear of fat, and our deeply help prejudice against larger bodies, leaves us susceptible to adopting false beliefs and believing the sellers of certainty.

Find out why fad diets, celebrity clean eaters, fear of carbs and other nutribollocks make him so Angry.

 (This is a different talk from the one at QED)

 Anthony Warner somehow managed to complete a Biochemistry Degree at Manchester University and then, after ten years in restaurants, hotels and events-catering, he became a development chef in the food manufacturing industry and has spent the last 11 years working on some of the UK’s best-known brands and products

In 2016, driven by frustration at the clearly unscientific messages being spewed out by a new breed of healthy eating celebrities, he started the Angry Chef blog.

He now writes regularly for New Scientist, The Pool and the Sunday Times, and his first book is The Angry Chef - Bad Science and the Truth about Healthy Eating. He has appeared on Inside Science, The Food Programme and was once asked if he would be happy to eat his own dog on The Moral Maze.


And because it’s nearly Christmas, there will be prizes and (carb-based) treats for all the good boys and girls.
