Eat all the taboo foods you’ve been told will make you a fatass and kill you.
Eat them as if your waist, life, and the planet’s health depend on it - because they do.
What if everything you think you know about health isn't true?
Hailed as "the anti-Skinny Bitch," Eat Like a Fatass, Look Like a Goddess: The Untold Story of Healthy Foods cuts through countless popular myths about nutrition, weight loss, disease-prevention, sustainability and planetary health with razor-sharp wit, hardcore research, and a whole lot of heart. What if:
most food cravings have nothing to do with lack of willpower
calorie-counting isn’t an accurate tool for weight loss
dietary fat doesn’t make you fat
saturated fat is actually healthy and you should be eating a lot more of it
women with higher cholesterol live longer than women with low cholesterol
salt consumption doesn’t give you high blood pressure, or make you bloated
the real Mediterranean Diet is very different from what you think it is
the Glycemic Index and ANDI are flawed and inaccurate
plant foods can’t do many important things for your body that animal foods can
no culture in the history of humanity has been able to continue its line on a diet entirely devoid of animal foods
ecological sustainability depends on non-commercial animal husbandry?
What if science indicates these what-ifs are reality? Because it does. What if you could lose weight, feel vitalized, nix cravings, and save the planet - all while indulging in foods you love? Because you can.
Eat Like a Fatass, Look Like a Goddess shows you how.
