Description
							Popular nutritionist Nora Gedgaudas returns with advice that may sound counterintuitive: eat fat to burn fat. In her new book, Primal Fat Burner, she explains the benefits and science behind a ketogenic diet: it switches your metabolism from running on sugars to running on healthy fats. As Gedgaudas reveals, numerous studies in recent years have refuted the previously promoted anti-saturated-fat-and-anti-cholesterol agenda. Now, Gedgaudas explains, science shows that fat isn't a "no-no" but rather a "yes-yes"-as long as you know the right kinds of fats to eat. In addition to explaining the science beyond that logic, Gedgaudas also lays out a practical meal plan with recipes-all of which reveals that following a ketogenic diet will lead to consuming fewer calories overall!
Reviews

"With able, funny writing; dozens of recipes; digressive but interesting boxed sections within chapters; and a note to readers to seek ultimate advice from their doctors, Gedgaudas lays out a plan for adopting a ketogenic diet for improved health and wellness." - Booklist

"Ready to live long, lustily, wisely and well?  Then it's time to let Nora Gedgaudas teach you the ‘fats of life.’" - Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, The Naughty Nutritionist, and co-author of Nourishing Broth

"This book tells the fascinating story of how our very humanity—our healthy bodies and exceptional brains—evolved from eating animal foods including their natural fats. The science supporting the lack of harm—and indeed the benefit—of dietary fat, including saturated fat, has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. In this well-researched and wide-ranging book, Gedgaudas shows a mastery of that science—and then takes it a step further. Drawing upon her many years of personal, clinical experience with patients, she explains how to take these principles into practice, bridging the gap between science and usable information for daily nutrition. This is a unique and profound contribution to the field." - Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise
