How did 2.3 billion people become overweight? How did heart disease, cancer, and other degenerative diseases become the leading causes of death worldwide? Our ancestors, especially our distant, Paleolithic ancestors, before the advent of agricultural, enjoyed remarkably robust health. What went wrong?
During the 20th century - the Dark Ages of nutrition - flawed nutritional theories gained widespread acceptance, prompting radical departures from traditional foods and time-honored food processing techniques. Sugar consumption skyrocketed; proinflammatory vegetable oils replaced nourishing animal fats; processed foods became commonplace.
In this groundbreaking book, Christopher Clark explores the social and economic forces enabling these changes while thoroughly and lucidly explaining modern scientific perspectives on fat metabolism, cholesterol, fructose metabolism, gluten, detoxification, and many other important nutritional subjects.
Nutritional Grail offers life-transforming knowledge regarding what to eat, why to eat it, and how to prepare it - including 100 simple, delicious recipes. Like the original 12th-century grail story, this knowledge comes through asking questions, serving others, and serving one's higher Self.
While laying out a comprehensive strategy for effortless weight loss, improved digestion, and increased energy, Clark convincingly suggests a nutritional renaissance, propelled by science and guided by the wisdom of our ancestors, is finally dawning.

Nutritional Grail is a Powerhouse of Information
I like the voice of the narrator, Adam B. Crafter. His voice just makes me want to hear more.
The many "ah ha" moments.
He did an excellent job pronouncing the foreign words.
Eight hours and 36 minutes of easy listening.
If you are only going to buy one book about nutrition, please consider this audio book.
