Eat Fat, Get Thin: Why the Fat We Eat Is the Key to Sustained Weight Loss and Vibrant Health by Mark Hyman, MD

For decades, medicine and pop culture have told us that eating less fat (and exercising more) is the secret to sustained weight loss, health and longevity. Yet Americans are sicker and fatter than ever.

In his new book, Eat Fat, Get Thin, Mark Hyman, MD debunks the biggest myths about fat – starting with the myth that dietary fat makes us fat and sick. This book is going to change the way you eat and change the way you feel. The days of tasteless egg white omelets and “health foods” that taste like cardboard are over.

Dr. Hyman’s new book Eat Fat, Get Thin will prove to you that it’s possible to eat delicious, deeply satisfying foods while getting healthy, and it all starts with getting rid of our fear of fat! Not only will you be inspired to make major changes in your health, but you'll feel delighted with all of the delicious food you can bring back into your diet!

Dr. Hyman has created a powerful Q&A Video to celebrate the launch of his new book Eat Fat, Get Thin. In this video, available on the Eat Fat, Get Thin web site, Dr. Hyman answers questions like:

  • If it’s not fat, what is the true cause of heart disease, diabetes, and disease?
  • How can we differentiate between good and bad fats?
  • Is butter really good for you?
  • And how did we get into this big, fat mess?

Over 1,000 people participated in the beta of the Eat Fat, Get Thin 21-Day Plan that Dr. Hyman outlines in his book. The results were powerful. They shed weight (as much as 46 pounds!), reduced blood sugar (an average of 23 points) and reported a 69% decrease in ALL symptoms from all diseases.
