More than 175 delicious recipes for sustained weight loss and vibrant health
- Book announcement
Decades of brainwashing have left many of us afraid of one of the body’s most necessary – and tasty – nutrients: fat. For years, we’ve been told that eating fat causes weight gain and heart disease, thus igniting a war on fat. We are now sicker and fatter than ever. Type 2 diabetes in America has tripled since the 1980s, and researchers estimate that one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050.
We can no longer afford to be a fat-phobic society, and no one knows this quite as well as renowned physician, health advocate, and author Mark Hyman, MD, whose instant New York Times bestseller Eat Fat, Get Thin debunked the conventional wisdom about fat, proving that the key to losing weight and keeping it off is to eat ample amounts of good fats. Now, with The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook (Little, Brown and Company), Dr. Hyman puts the science found in Eat Fat, Get Thin into action with more than 175 mouthwatering recipes – featuring nuts, coconut oil, avocados, and other superfoods you thoughts were “off-limits” – to help you incorporate these good fats into your diet and continue on your path to wellness.
Dr. Hyman wants people to get back in the kitchen. As a result of our fast-paced culture of convenience, the average amount of time that we spend in the kitchen has gone down and obesity rates have gone up. But we don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen to get a satisfying – and healthy – meal. The recipes in The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook are easy to prepare and nourish the whole body while making our taste buds happy, too. From Garlicky Beef and Spinach Frittatas to Pancakes with Almond Flour, and from Deviled Eggs and Meatloaf to Chocolate Truffles and Walnut Fudge Brownies, Dr. Hyman provides a wide variety of satisfying meals rich in healthy fat.
In The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook, Dr. Hyman outlines the Pegan Diet, which combines the best of Paleo and Vegan diets. This inclusive, balanced approach emphasizes real, whole, fresh food that is sustainably raised, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, while being low in sugar, refined carbs, and processed foods and ingredients. Dr. Hyman recommends that readers first follow his 21-day Eat Fat, Get Thin Plan, introduced in Eat Fat, Get Thin and outlined in chapter 2 of the cookbook, and then transition to the Pegan Diet. In addition to the recipes, Dr. Hyman shares his Seven Big Ideas – key principles that he and his patients have used on their journeys to optimal health – along with tips for making over your kitchen to promote healthier eating and advice on how to: eat well on a budget, grocery shop with ease, eat healthy with kids, eat outside of the home, and more. He also shares a cheat sheet that lists approved foods and fats and those that are off-limits.
Dr. Hyman’s research provides undeniably clear evidence that in the absence of refined sugars and processed carbohydrates, healthy fats shut down cravings, speed up metabolism, and can help prevent and even reverse heart disease, not cause it. Thousands of people – including Dr. Hyman – have followed the Eat Fat, Get Thin Plan and experienced fast and sustained weight loss. Your health is a lifelong journey, and The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook helps make that journey doable and delicious.
