Publisher's Summary

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!

Great book, easy to follow

This book was pretty good. I was skeptical that it might be another health fad, but she seems to have a lot of first hand knowledge of human dietary history, plus the time she spent with the Inuits. It just seems to make sense that if you train your body to burn fat as a primary resource, then eating fat won't make you fat. I'll admit that some of the foods she mentioned made me cringe a little, but then again, I feel like I've trained myself to prefer the wrong foods. I did think the narration voice sounded computerized, because of how some words were pronounced, like, "pico de gallo," which she says like PEEKO-DUH-GALLOW, and the correct way is more like PEEKO-DEE-GUY-OH. Then she said herbs de province correctly. I'm going to try a bone broth and will try to cut carbs and dairy down considerably before I dive head first, and I'm excited about seeing how some of the recipes might turn out.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I could not get enough!!

Any additional comments?

I was worried recipes may not be available...but I took the chance and bought the audio version...
To my disappointment the recipes are not available, I feel I need to purchase the book a second time in a printed version so that I can take advantage of the recipes in this book.
