Can I Just Ask?

Dr Christian Jessen

Dr Christian Jessen, the unshockable presenter of the hit television shows, Embarrassing Bodies and Supersize vs Superskinny, is always being tackled by strangers wanting answers to their most private medical questions. Like all doctors, Dr Christian finds people sidling up to him with their questions at parties, on trains, and even in the street. So why don’t people ask their own doctors these questions in the more formal setting of the medical surgery? And what are the most common questions?

Can I Just Ask? provides the answers in a fun and informative book that includes:

. urban health myths busted
. advice for common problems we don’t like to talk about
. specific sections for male/female health issues, curious facts, sex, diet, medicines, fitness and more
. plenty of surprising facts and figures to help trivia-hungry readers better understand the mysterious workings of their bodies.

Sometimes humorous, often surprising and always informative, this book will answer all your questions, whether you have a worrying health dilemma or just a curious mind!

Supersize vs Superskinny

Dr Christian Jessen

The world has gone diet mad. There is a new celebrity eating plan every week, sales of slimming products are soaring, and we all count the calories. Yet this obsession with our diet does not seem to be making us any thinner, or any healthier. One in four adults in the UK are now classified as clinically obese while at the same time 1.1 million of us suffer from an eating disorder. Something clearly needs to be done.

In Supersize Vs Superskinny, Dr Christian Jessen uses science, medicine and most importantly common sense to help us get back on track. There are explanatory chapters outlining why we’re so obsessed with our weight and body image, and exactly why it is so dangerous to be supersize or superskinny, followed by practical chapters to help us understand our own behaviour and change our relationship with food for the better. Topping it all off, there are eating plans and recipes to help you find a healthy balance and reach your ideal weight, whatever your current size.

Supportive, practical, informed and beautifully illustrated, Supersize Vs Superskinny is the perfect book for anyone wishing to take control of their weight and learn more about how to have a happy, healthy attitude towards food.
