Anthony Warner is a food and science writer, and the author of The Angry Chef blog.

Anthony studied Biochemistry at Manchester University before deciding that the heat of the professional kitchen was the career for him. After ten years in restaurants, hotels and events-catering he became a food development chef, working on some of the UK’s best-known brands and products.

In 2016 he started The Angry Chef blog, dedicated to debunking the pseudoscience surrounding the way we think about food and health, and in the space of a few short months has amassed an army of followers.

His first book, The Angry Chef: Bad Science and the Truth about Healthy Eating, was published in January 2018, and it was followed by his second book, The Truth about Fat, in January 2018; both were published by Oneworld. Anthony is currently working on his new book.

The woman who invented ‘I Quit Sugar’ had an eating disorder for a decade. Struggled writing this as it feels v uncomfortable to expose another woman but I felt someone has to in aid of the thousands of followers who replicate her eating 1/2

Yes. Yes they are. Just like the person who drives without a seatbelt and doesn’t get in a car wreck.

As a microbiologist, I cannot say this strongly enough:


Modern food environment results in a lot of people with chronic illnesses, past food environments often resulted in a lot of people acutely dead. Finding the balance is the challenge now.

Guardian 'Science'.

So much wrong here.

Apparently pasteurisation can kill minerals in milk.

Also a complete failure to mention raw milk safety issues.

No, compost is not the secret.
Compost is just importing biomass from a large area and applying it to a smaller area. Of course it works, but it does not scale and ignores the effects on the land that originally produced it.

🍏An inspiring day on how to create an open & honest communication culture around food, engaging everyone frm seed to plate.

Fat shaming is everywhere but gets society precisely nowhere

Whilst this wasn’t my finest hour, I do wonder when it became a badge of honour to be uneducated*? When did we stop acknowledging the relevance of evidence and science? *I don’t mean ‘uni educated’ necessarily I just mean ‘has read more than 1 book’. @EveSimmns @One_Angry_Chef

Just discovered that @One_Angry_Chef is doing a talk at @LakesideArts!
Tickets? Booked ✔️

I don't think there is a shred of evidence that fat shaming reduces obesity. But even if it did, even if it was super effective. even if there were 10 RCTs and a meta-analysis, I still don't think it is justified. There are some things as decent human beings we just shouldn't do.

This is, in effect, asking if bullying or abuse is ok. Why are we giving these folks airtime? People with obesity are not bad or lazy, they are fighting their biology. Obesity is NOT A CHOICE.

Just 4 tickets left for tonight. Who’s is gonna be?? #FlintlockDAILYBREAD @ArtsatOFS

You can now book tickets for our lunchtime Food Tales talk with @One_Angry_Chef! October 15 at 1pm, @LakesideArts Come along and talk food with us.

Kimberley is perhaps the smartest and most insightful person I know, and this book will be excellent. I am so happy she has finally written one, the world needs it.

Preorder it now.

Super excited to kick off our new speaker series @LakesideArts next month with @One_Angry_Chef on October 15! Join us over lunchtime to discuss all things food.

Finished! (Length of time to read no reflection of quality, just me having far too many books on the go). No need to be a scientist, an expert in the field of nutrition, a health professional to read this gem. I am none of these. Loved it! @One_Angry_Chef, waiting for next one!

quantification is starting to tyrannize meaning

it's as if things don't exist / aren't valuable until they are measured

how long was your jog? how many calories burned? steps taken?

how many years does a friendship add to your life?

how much does marriage increase net worth?
