We offer these links from physicist, Dr. Sabine Hossenfelder:
What Causes Obesity?
How Much Can You Trust Calorie Labels?
A physicist you ask, well yes Dr. Sabine offers a YouTube channel that covers a lot of science topics that I listen to at least once or twice a week, Science Without the Gobbledygook. So on that note, I found her episodes on how to read a calorie label and obesity are amongst the best done on the topic I have ever seen. I was surprised to find these titles on her site but it was through my nerdy side that I found the links.
Then there are the Blue Zones a concept that I find intriguing so check out the resources below:

Another book and resource mentioned during the episode was Fast Food Genocide by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
