This book made me think about my old relatives. I grew up on a farm and let me tell you, when I was a kid eating at great-great aunt's place, delicious food! It was loaded with healthy fats and it was wholesome foods. These people lived to 90 years old and not sick, fully functioning with great memories. This holds more truth in my books than any low fat food craze can possibly contain. That short-circuits your system and has you wasting hours of your life eating every two hours because you get jittery. Try it, you will be amazed.
Also, please note that it's not like everything is supposed to be dripping in fat, a bit goes a long way.
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
