Coconut oil, red meat, and butter these fats are traditionally considered harmful, but this powerful book, based on more than two decades of research, shows that these saturated fats are actually essential to weight loss and health. Eat Fat, Lose Fat flouts conventional wisdom by revealing that so-called healthy vegetable oils (such as corn and soybean) are in large part responsible for our national obesity and health crisis.The three programs in this book, which features delicious coconut oil based recipes, among others, show that eating healthy fats is the answer to losing weight and achieving good health for a lifetime. If permanently losing weight while improving your health is a real goal, I highly recommend Eat Fat, Lose Fat. Dr. Joseph Mercola, bestselling author of The No-Grain Diet Dr. Mary Enig and Sally Fallon are two of the most important voices in the wellness revolution. Eat Fat, Lose Fat is a must read. Jordan S. Rubin, author of The New York Times bestselling The Maker s Diet "show more

Our customer reviews

This book deserves all the high ratings it has been given. I've read dozens of books on diet but this one really stood out. Part of the book was about weight loss but the bigger part was about health, and very useful. This book is probably the book I would recommend if you could only buy one book containing practical information about what to eat. We need to eat real food! I can't afford to follow every suggestion (grass fed organic meats only etc.), but I have already made changes to my diet that I know will be benficial to my health. (I'm just going to ignore the bits about eating grains and legumes though as they are not for me.) The only improvements I would suggest are a simplified list of what to eat and how much roughly of each food type that DOESN'T assume you'll eat nothing but their recipes, and more information on what to do if you are allergic/intolerant of dairy, eggs, wheat and are not eating all grains or legumes for health reasons and because high carb foods such as grains and legumes don't agree with you. I am going to try some raw milk though, to see if I can tolerate it. I got this book out from the library and ended up actually buying a copy because the recipes at the back all looked so good and useful. I almost never do that! But it really is just a 'keeper' in my opinion. Ignore the flashy cover and the title this is a solid book about health and diet. If you'd like more information and facts about some of the theories mentioned in the book I'd recommend as extra reading; 1. Good Calories, Bad Calories (retitled The Diet Delusion in UK/Oz) 2. Deep Nutrition 3. Nutrition and Physical Degeneration Jodi Bassett, The Hummingbirds' Foundation for Myalgic Encepahlomyelitis (M.E.)show more
