    May Spark a Food Revolution

    Underneath this book's mainstream title and flashy hot-pink packaging lie a revolutionary premise. Real foods - including meat, eggs, butter, cream, coconut oil and other traditional high-fat foods - are the keys to weight loss, high energy, brain function, feelings of wellbeing and disease prevention. So throw out those low-fat, highly processed and packaged foods, forget about being a vegetarian, 'bread-atarian' or 'soy-atarian' and go back to enjoying the whole foods that your healthy ancestors really ate. In the process, you'll not only regain your health and find your perfect weight but totally enjoy your food. This book is a simpler version of the authors' grassroots classic NOURISHING TRADITIONS with the same sound science but a new emphasis on the healing power of coconut oil. As a Clinical Nutritionist, I have found that coconut cream and oil are very healing to the thyroid and greatly speed the recovery of former vegetarians and heavy soy eaters. The book also answers the many questions clients have about trans fats, vegetable oils, cholesterol and the dangers of the currently popular low fat/high protein diets. Highly recommended.

    Good Healthy Read

    This book was an interesting read, it made you really question what you have been told by the government and the health community for the last 30 years. However, it also gives the scientific studies to back up their claims. Much of it makes sense. I have encorporated coconut oil and cod liver oil into my diet and I do agree I have appreciated increased energy levels throughout the day. The only thing I find difficult is encorporating the eating plans offered into my busy daily lifestyle.

    A great book but buy hardcopy

    The information in this book is excellent but I can't recommend the Nook version.

    The index has no page numbers listed in the Nook version and chapter 8 is missing entirely!
