What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Praise for FAT CHANCE

“No scientist has done more in the last fifty years to alert Americans to the potential dangers of sugar in the diet than Dr. Robert Lustig.” 
—Gary Taubes,author of Good Calories, Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat
 
“Our eating habits are killing us. In this timely and important book, Dr. Robert Lustig presents the scientific evidence for the toxicity of sugar and the disastrous effects of modern industrial food on the hormones that control hunger, satiety, and weight. He gives recommendations for a personal solution to the problem we face and also suggests a public policy solution. Fat Chance is the best book I've read on the relationship between diet and health and the clearest explanation of epidemic obesity in our society.”
Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Happiness and You Can’t Afford to Get Sick
 
Fat Chance is THE manifesto for our time. It reveals the real reasons we why we are a fat nation and how to cure the obesity epidemic.  It gets right to the root of the problem, which is not gluttony and sloth, as the food industry, government and your neighbor would have you believe.  It is because we are drowning in a sea of sugar which poisons our metabolism, shrinks our brains, and threatens our national security and global competitiveness.  Every American, politician, teacher, and business leader must read this book.  Our nation's future depends on it.” 
 —Mark Hyman, M.D., author of The Blood Sugar Solution

    Fantastic Book---Great Information

    This book is the best cookbook for eating healthy that I have ever read. The first 50-60 pages of the book goes into a very good overview as to why sugar and processed foods are so bad for you and how these foods affect your body and leads to overweight and obese people. The recipes are great, most are easy to make and I've lost a lot of weight in the 3 weeks that my wife and I have been eating healthy. The author has another book, Fat Chance, that goes into much more detailed reasons for doing away with sugar and processed foods in your diets and how those foods affect your body, but after reading it, I felt the cookbook's first 50-60 pages of information was a great overview for Fat Chance and if you feel the need for more information after purchasing and reading the cookbook, then buy that book also.
    I also highly recommend purchasing a regular book version of this book in lieu of purchasing on a reader, which I did. It will make going back to the various recipes easier, or if purchasing via a reader, make note of the pages of recipes that interest you, so you can go back to them at a later time.
