Publisher's Summary

Whether you are seeing a doctor, a nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise eating more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control while others believe it gives them more energy. Now, weight loss expert Dr. Garth Davis asks, "Is all this protein making us healthier?"
The answer, he emphatically argues, is no. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do, and yet we have an entire nation getting sicker by the day.
As a surgeon, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research with his hands-on patient experience, this groundbreaking book reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

Refreshingly Fact Filled

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Finally, some facts you can use and share. I appreciate the deep delve into Atkins, Pritikin and other food movements and their founders (including their autopsy results). Also, mind blowing was the recommended levels of protein vs. what is consumed, and how some athletic trainers can miscalculate for clients the amount of protein needed.

While the comparison between the omnivore vs. carnivore digestive system was familiar, the way that the information was presented kept me engaged the entire time. Lastly, the narrator was fantastic.
