Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“. . . The Great Cholesterol Myth Cookbook busts unscientific food myths—so you can get back to the joy of eating!” - Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of Beat Sugar Addiction Now!

“You owe it to yourself, your heart, and your family to read this book, but more importantly, follow the program!” - Robb Wolf, best-selling author of The Paleo Solution

“What a delight to find that all these ‘forbidden’ foods are exactly what we should be eating to keep our hearts healthy!” - Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D, C.N.S., best-selling author, The Fat Flush Plan

“[The authors’] arguments are based on scientific research published in peer-reviewed journals, which makes them difficult to refute. Tenets such as limit sugar, limit grains, no need to avoid saturated fat, and minimize processed foods, will go a long way in reversing risk factors for heart disease.” -Colette Heimowitz, MSc, Vice President of Atkins Nutritionals, Inc.
 
“The dietary recommendations [the authors] make are right on target, and they are going to surprise you.” -Jennifer Landa, M.D., chief medical officer of BodyLogicMD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women
 

“This team is a powerhouse of complementary skills and experience: Johnny Bowden is one of the world's leading authorities on functional foods. Stephen Sinatra is the first voice of metabolic cardiology. Deirdre Rawlings is an inspiring life coach.” - Leo Galland, M.D., best-selling author of The Fat Resistance Diet

“Bravo, bravo, bravo! Finally—a cookbook that puts flavor, healthy fats, and sanity back in the kitchen!” - Christiane Northrup, M.D., best-selling author, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
 
“Take it from the trusted experts in this book, and learn to enjoy the best foods for your heart, mind, and body!” -Larry McCleary, M.D., author of Feed Your Brain, Lose Your Belly and The Fracture Cure
 
“[The authors’] conclusions are contrary to conventional medical thinking—and in line with the best research out there! I find myself giving my patients the same message daily. I appreciate begin able to back it up with this well-considered, beautifully written book, which then provides them with recipes that are both practical and delicious. Let them eat fat!” -Hyla Cass, M.D., author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health
